Have had this laptop for a couple of years and has definitely been abused, thrown about the room and overused but still works well. Has a lovely big screen and is quite fast even with lots of space on memory taken up. Has a good webcam and all the pros of Windows Vista. Have never had any major problems. The battery originally lasted for over two hours although now lasts just under an hour when unplugged, which is longer than many other batteries once used. It is easy to use with the acer widgit giving easy access to internet and wifi settings, sound and recovery. Only downside is that it takes forever to shut down and sometimes just sleeps instead of totally shutting down. Overall it is a good computer that has everything an average computer user would need. Graphics are good enough for my use - don't play many games so couldn't comment on gaming graphics.
