Good: Price and looks
Bad: You have to wait for it to catch up with whatever you are doing. The sound quality
Comment: I should have waited for other deals but at £269 it seems a good buy. Whatever you are doing it takes a while to keep catching up, so half the time is wasted. The sound quality is absolute rubbish, it crackles and grates all the time. Tried all the suggestions but nothing helps. Would not buy another.
Bad: as with all cheap things it is not very good
Comment: started to fail a few months before warranty expired, by time warranty did it needed a new HDD, keyboard, possible system board and a battery. Acer are no help whatsoever in arranging replacement and have played email ping pong for the last week, I will buy a more reliable brand such as Dell. This is a throw away pc at this price and the service is as such, if you want something for work/exams/making music/art work (something where you will not lose all your work) pay a bit more and get something reliable.
Good: Does all I need and/or can cope with
Bad: Sometimes sluggish. Throws up sneaky advertisements.
Comment: Got it 'free' with a new phone. (yeah, right). It'll do nicely.
Good: it does what i want
Bad: nothing, a bit slow sometimes
Comment: as i paid £40 less than above price more than 9 months ago i thought it was a good deal
Good: Good for my homework and facebook
Bad: The hard drive messes up after six months
Comment: Yes I have had my laptop for six months and it worked ok up until now when the hard drive decided that it wanted to go down now I have to buy new hard drive and and windows seven all over
Comment: I bought this laptop on price plus the spec which I cannot believe for the sum of Â£259 delivered free my one also has 500mb storage had it up and running in about 30mins,this must be the best value laptop out there at the moment as for the grahics card or lack of one most people who are gamers will use a xbox or playstation through there tvs
Comment: I bought this machine for a friend I work with in the Middle East. The spec on it is very good and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one for myself if I hadn't recently purchased a similar machine with lower spec for more money, so I think this was a good deal and value for money.
*** P.S. If you will buy this Laptop I suggest at: amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004VE70YK/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=reviews.cnet.co.uk-21&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B004VE70YK
