    For six months it was working beautifully, yesterday I was going to charge it, and the charger’s pin wouldn’t go in the hole of the laptop to be charged. I will take it to a repairer and see if it can be fixed, hopefully it will. If not, I will have a new laptop that that I will not be able to use!

    Love this labtop. Well made lots of power lots of bang for the money . Runs quit fast operation on all settings. Amazing beautiful screen. Love the Windows 11. Great customer service from Acer. Best labtop for the price made

  3. Jimmy

    This is a great laptop for everyday use (youtube, internet, office etc). I was surprised on how fast it was. might be able to do some light gaming on non-intensive games.

    Wow, I am impressed by this laptop. It has the best keyboard feel, display quality, and high-end look at this price point. This is a good choice IF you are ok with the small data storage space (or plan to upgrade).— The lighted keyboard feels like a keyboard from a premium $1,000 – $2,000 laptop. Very nice soft touch with excellent quiet tactile feedback.— I love the power switch button location as a key on the upper right of the keyboard. It is so much easier to find this key vs. fumbling around trying to find a power button on the side of the case.— The image quality on the display is excellent. This has a matte finish, not the super glossy finish which creates glare. I like the matte screen for all room lighting conditions and color accuracy. I am really impressed with the screen because at this low price I usually see terrible laptop screen resolution and quality. This one is an exception with the very nice Full HD IPS display.— This has the key extras, such as a webcam, fingerprint reader, and combination of USB 3 + C port types.— This comes with Windows S mode (limited apps for security) and it takes just a few seconds to click on the Microsoft Store and change Windows to regular mode.— There is minimal bloatware (unnecessary software preinstalled) which is nice, because that’s a common annoyance on new computers. I didn’t have to uninstall anything to get a clean, streamlined Windows 10.I recommend this laptop for two types of users:1. If you need something for basic web browsing, school or office work and you are ok with the tiny drive data storage capacity.2. If you are the kind of techie who likes to use your own memory + disk drive upgrade rather than the manufacturer provided components. This laptop is a great starting point for these upgrades.I am in category 2. I upgraded to Samsung (MZ-V8V1T0B/AM) 980 SSD 1TB – M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology and Crucial RAM 16GB DDR4 2666 MHz CL19 Laptop Memory CT16G4SFRA266. It took me about 5 minutes to remove the screws from the case and pop in these two modules.With the 1TB SSD upgrade and the 16GB memory upgrade, I can’t tell much difference between this laptop and a high end $1,000 model.If you are just using this for casual web browsing without having to store much data, this is excellent right out of the box

  5. Eric Martin

    very happy with this laptop. if your the type of person who just wants to youtube check email and browse the web but dont wanna feel like your laptop is a dinosaur. stop looking around spend the money it comes out to 400 and some change after tax and youll never look back. enjoy

    Right off the bat this is an ok Laptop as-is. Its got a great power frugal processor with integrated Vega graphics. Its downsides are its anemic RAM (4gb) and Tiny Hard drive. Thankfully both of these can be upgraded on the cheap to make this a real beast of a PC. Im going to tell you step by step how I took this three hundred dollar pc and made it faster, with more memory and hard drive space under a 100 bucks, including the drive cloning tools!!!1. Purchase 4gb-16gb single DIM laptop memory – I purchased a varisys 16gb ddr4 module for $46.00 here on amazon.2. Purchase larger NVME m.2 drive – I purchased a samsung pro 960 512gb for $42 from amazon.3. Purchase 2 NVME usb adapters – Sold here on amazon for $8/each4. Download paragron drive clone software.Now before I go any further I will say that the biggest bang for the buck is going to be the RAM upgrade in which it is the simplest and easiest upgrade for this system, you will get the same performance with the stock hard drive as you would the upgraded one just at a much smaller 128gb size. With the low cost of external drives you may not want to even upgrade the hard drive and just stick with external media to save larger files.After acquiring all your components the first thing you’re going to want to do is disassemble the rear of the acer computer. There are 11 phillips head screws on the underside of the laptop, once those are removed use a plastic tool like a spudge or even a toothpick to gentle pry up one side of the rear case until it unclicks, from there slowly go around and lift up the rest of it, once youve gotten about a quarter way through you can simply just use your hand to free the rest of it. Once removed you will see an open DIMM slot for a memory module (thats where out 16gb stick is going) and below that the already installed m.2 128gb Hard drive. Remove the phillips head screw from the m.2 drive and remove the drive itself from the computer. At this point insert the drive into one of the USB caddys you purchased from amazon and than take your new drive and insert that one in a caddy as well. From there take both loaded hard drive caddys and put them in another windows PC you have. Once thats done ensure that the computer is recognizing both drives and than install paragon software. Once installed run paragon and choose drive clone. From there set your source drive as the original m.2 drive you removed from the acer computer and your destination drive as the newly purchased NVME drive. Choose Sector by sector copy and click next. This process will go pretty quickly and will probably only take around 5-10 minutes depending on the computer youre using to clone the drives on. Once the drive is cloned, take the new nvme drive and insert it into the Acer notebook where the old one was removed. From there pop in your new memory module into the empty memory slot above. Once one make sure things are seated well and the m.2 drive is screwed back down. Once thats done put the back case back on the computer and gently push down the backing until it clicks back into place. Once done reattatch the screws until all are reinstalled. Flip her over, and fire her up! Verify that everything works and go about your way. However I would suggest turning off windows S mode and using Home instead as you can install third party apps.Now onto my clickbait title. The computer in the picture next to the acer is my m1 macbook pro with 1tb drive and 16gb ram. Without taxes it was $1,700 bucks. I have photoshop, lightstudio, propresent all installed on it. All of which are large memory and processor dependent hogs. On my acer I have the exact same programs installed. And guess what the acer loads them quicker, renders files faster, runs cooler, and is about a quarter of the price. Battery life is about as good as my macbook, acer with movies or web browsing is around 7-8 hours of battery life. And no joke but I am now using this acer as my primary travel computer for work and design in lieu of my macbook. I like the larger screen, better keyboard layout and less worry about breaking it as its a quarter of the price. The acer itself build quality is that of 1k+ pc’s and has a nice metal desgin with minimal plastic. Keyboard isnt mushy and is quite tactile for a laptop. Screen is ok, could be brighter, but still very good. Processor is a beast and will deal with anything thrown at it. Light gaming can also be done on this machine, however this isnt intended for AAA titles. All in all this is one of the more surprising purchases Ive made recently that really blew me away in terms of performance for so little investment. For a grand total of 387 (including laptop) I have a machine that rivals PC laptops costing well over a grand and macs costing nearly 2 grand!!!

    Let’s face it, this is not a laptop designed for high performance gaming or processor intensive design or art work. Instead it’s a sub 4 pound notebook with standard features and capabilities. The two USB-3s and the USB-C are good, as is the single USB-2 which is perfect for a wireless mouse chiclet. The screen is good but nothing to get excited about. The single HDMI works as advertised as does the the CAT 5, though I would gladly swap the latter for a Display Port or an SD card slot.My only complaint is the keyboard backlighting. It can be turned off and on with a hotkey but it insists on turning the backlighting off after about 10 seconds of non-use. There is a setting in BIOS to disable the auto darkening however.All in all you really can’t go wrong with the purchase at this price point, but if you’re the type that wants to have all of the option boxes ticked for maximum specs, you would be better served by a laptop that starts in the $650ish price range

    So this laptop isn’t going to win any speed awards, but for what it is, it’s very nice and reasonably priced. And this Acer Aspire is perfectly adequate for what about 95% of people need a laptop for. It’s a sturdy enough laptop for this price. The only problem? RAM and storage.My advice: Buy a 4GB RAM stick NOW, and be sure to insert that thing right away. It’s a simple enough process. Remove the screws on the bottom of the device, pry the back cover off, stick the RAM in the slot and press down. That’s it. If you’re a computer novice and are afraid to install some RAM, there are plenty of videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it with this exact brand and model. Or, if you’re still not comfortable installing RAM after watching a few videos, have a friend or coworker do it for you. You will notice a huge difference.With all that said, here’s what I thought of this laptop:WHAT I LIKE:-Full-sized keyboard: This was especially useful for me because the software we use, InDesign, requires shortcuts be used on the numpad, so this large keyboard layout is perfect for me.-Fingerprint sensor: This is, by far, the quickest (and among the most secure) ways to log into Windows. A great addition for a budget laptop-The screen: The 15.6 inch IPS display is pretty big for a laptop. The brightness level isn’t great, but it’s fine for indoor applications.-Upgradeable: The laptop comes with a hard drive caddy that can be installed so that you can install an additional 2.5″ hard drive or SSD. And with the low storage, there’s a good chance you’ll need it.-Windows 10: Even though this only ships with Windows 10S, you can easily unlock the full potential of Windows 10 with one quick step. However, if you’re one who doesn’t like to tinker and you don’t trust yourself to stay clear of viruses, you might want to keep the S mode. You’ll just have to get all your apps from the Microsoft Store.-Fast NVMe storage. Much faster than even conventional (SATA) SSDs or hard drives. Startup is quick, probably less than 15-20 seconds.-Battery: The battery life on this laptop is outstanding. I get 8 hours out of it easily.-Backlit keyboard-Plenty of ports (USB, HDMI, headphone, etc.)WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:-Lack of RAM and storage: 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Laptops were shipping with 4GB of RAM 15 years ago. I think it’s about time that even budget laptops start shipping with at least 6GB or 8GB. 4GB will only allow you to do the most basic of tasks, e.g. open a few browser tabs; watch a Netflix video, but it won’t let you do those at the same time, so you’ll find yourself constantly closing other tabs and programs to get by. And 128GB is less than some smartphones ship with these days. It’s just not enough. Thankfully, you can upgrade both if you’re savvy enough.-Processor: AMD’s 3350U, while a step up from the usual Celeron N3350, it’s still sluggish.Overall, it’s hard to find many faults with this budget laptop. For the price, it’s a pretty good deal: Full blown version of Windows, 15.6″ 1080p IPS panel display, upgradable. It’s bare bones, but very upgradable. This would make a great first laptop for a student or a good secondary laptop for office work. I’d definitely recommend it.

    good value

  10. phastbiker

    Got this as a gift for my wife. Used mostly for simple browsing, a ton of online shopping and some piyoga video streaming? Not even sure what that is. The battery life lasts WAY too long. Gives her more than enough time finding more useless crap to spend money on. Then still has battery life to shop for organizers to organize the piles of nonsense getting shipped in.The backlit keyboard was a nice touch for the price point.From some quick set up assessments, it’s snappy. I didn’t expect a lot with the processor but the solid state drive helps. Connectivity is good, typical use is beyond adequate. Video looks great. Browsing and streaming on wifi all seem effortless. Can’t deny it’s a worthy purchase for casual use
