7/6/2011 10:42:33 PM I love Acer products! The best thing I like about it is that you can restore to original factory settings if something goes wrong! Had a desktop and now I have the laptop! Love it!

3/7/2010 1:05:23 PM the pc isn't shutting down properly... shut before the windows shuts down, a background error for non-responsiveness appears then windows proceeds to shut down into the blue screen notifying me as the user, "shutting down..." but never pc never shuts off...

3/20/2010 3:29:32 AM I am satisfied with this computer, however, PC Tune-Up keeps trying to download an optional driver and installs it without asking if I want it, and it locks up my computer. The fix requires a safe mode start up to remove the driver. An option to deny an installation would be appreciated.
 
  3.00 out of 4
4/5/2010 5:51:11 PM I have actually just now completed the setup of this PC so I cannot honestly say that it does or does not do the two aforementioned things asked above. Please give me time to get to knoe this computer but from all accounts, it is a very good system so I expect very good things from it.

1/22/2011 9:11:10 AM I will be online in college and typing a paper when the site will time out and shut me out, and I will have to re-log-in. I lose work and it is frustraiting. The same happens when I am in the discussion forum. this may be due to the college, but I wanted to mention this. sometimes it is slow, especially at home. I am getting lots of matchmaker and singles junk mail of which I am uninterested in. do I unsubscribe when I did not subscribe, just delete, or what?
