Fast and light but poor keyboard
Easy To Use
No Kensington Lock Port
This is a machine I wanted to like - great look, lightweight, included bluetooth mouse, protective case, micro HDMI adapter, fine wireless strength, SSD, fast bootup, nice speed. I upgraded to Windows 8.1, installed a few things, and all was looking good. Unfortunately the keyboard is all but unusable for typing. Repeated characters, missed keystrokes, needing to press page down 2-3 times before it would catch.<br /><br />Acer support was quick and after troubleshooting in three fairly short chat sessions concluded that it was a hardware problem, said send it in, and they would repair or replace. Acer's message boards though showed others having the same problem with no one reporting a fix. Not confident that it could be made satisfactory, I returned it to the retailer for a replacement. The replacement had pretty much the same problem with poor key responsiveness, although with fewer cases of repeating keys. I returned it for a refund.<br /><br />This may have been a problem with a particular production lot, but as it stands I could not recommend this laptop.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
