This laptop is great. I purchased it for everyday computing tasks (web browsing, email, calendar and organization, MS Office, etc.) and for media entertainment (movies/TV shows, music, online streaming, etc.) and it does all of these things easily. To be honest, it's probably overkill for such basic functions. The SSD makes everything incredibly fast compared to a regular HDD. It also runs very cool and quietly. In fact, I've only heard the fan turn on (or run at an audible speed) just a few times in about a month of ownership and even then it was still very quiet and shut off (slowed down) after just a few moments. I'm not a gamer so I have no insight to offer in that regard, but it does have a discrete GPU, so maybe it's decent for gaming (I really can't say). This laptop also comes with very little bloatware. I believe CyberLink PowerDVD is the only preinstalled program besides a few Microsoft and Acer apps. The screen is good, nothing special but not bad at all and it's pretty bright if you need it. The speakers seem about that same, although I use headphones 99% of the time. Battery life is pretty good as well. I would say I get about 6-8 hours on average of doing the aforementioned basic tasks. The build quality is average as well, but not the greatest. The optical tray is very flimsy when open (I only opened it once when I first go the laptop to check everything out) and the bezel around the screen is a little flimsy also. It seemed pretty delicate when I was removing one of the stickers that comes on it, but having said all that, this laptop will be as good as any sitting on a desk or just not being careless when moving it. What brings home my review of this laptop though is the price. It's a good laptop on it's own, but at this price the value is great. If you need a laptop for basic computing or school this is one of the best value offers at the moment. I gave it 5 stars not because it's a top of the line laptop, but because it does exactly what I need and expected it to do better than I anticipated, all for a great price.
This computer is definitely speedy. So glad my friend that used to work on computers suggested the solid state drive. I could not be happier with the speed. And there's optional space for an extra SSD or hard drive. The keyboard is very comfortable, the coloring is right, but the mouse pad takes a little getting used to. It's super slick. I'm not really impressed by the speakers. Same as every other computer I've had. Now here's the bad: the battery does not last anywhere near 12 hours. I charge this laptop twice a day. It must have something to do with streaming my St. Louis Cardinals games and some Netflix shows. I would say the battery lasts about 4 1/2 to 5 hours in this case. It's odd that cheaper computers and my iPad are able to keep their charge while streaming, but this computer can't.
