Excellent Value laptop
For the sale price, this computer is a great value. I'm very happy with my purchase. I will buy another one. The only downside is that the maximum memory is up to 8GB. I bought 16GB to put in it, but they wouldn't work so now I have to return that memory. I just looked in the product description and noticed that it does mention that 8GB is the maximum for memory. So it's my fault. But it's ok, this laptop runs fast with 8GB. Because I wanted it faster, I replaced the hard drive with a 7200rpm 1TB drive and this laptop is really really fast now. Once SSD drive prices come down, then I will put one in for even more speed. Thanks Office Depot and Acer, I'm happy with this.

Incredible Price for Excellent Machine
I've had this laptop for about three weeks now and waiting until it had some good usage before I wrote a review on it. I am retiring in a week after 38 years as a computer hardware tech for a large computer well know company. My expertise was in install and repair from mainframes down to laptops. This purchase was my retirement gift to myself.
This is an excellent laptop. Easy to get around physically and operationally. Large touch screen is really vivid and exceptional quality, easy to touch and slide vertically and horizontal. It came with Windows 8 and , after being somewhat skeptical, it became very easy. to use the new Windows software. The setup was done within minutes as the computer itself found wireless connectivity and printer wireless quickly and automatically. From unpacking to usage is very quick.
Speed is very good as well as disk access. battery stays charges for a long time. Disk capacity is great and the Intel CPU made me feel secure as I always believed strongly in Intel quality and speed. Nice amount of memory to breeze through multitasking and with little delay.. Case is strong as well as cosmetically nice looking. The touch pad , on the keyboard, has taken sometime to get used to, but it works well with a slightly heavier touch.
Hard to believe this much laptop for this price. It's about half of what I believed I would have to pay for the power and it actually has the DVD Combo writer which I see a lot of laptops sellers are now making an optional purchase. You will enjoy this baby a lot.Have fun.

Almost perfect for me
Just bought this the other day. What I wanted was the I5 processor, touchscreen and Bluetooth. I would have liked a backlit keyboard and indicator lights for caps on and num lock. I will upgrade this to 8 gigs of memory in the future. I replaced a HP refurbished laptop I've had for a few years. This thing is great for the price. Wish I could say the same for Windows 8.
