Love it so far. I do really like the design and ease of opening the lid. All of the controls for brightness, volume, and etc. are accessed through the keyboard so that kinda sucks. The speakers are alright and can vibrate at high volumes, their position is under the laptop so they can get muffled easily. Everything else it top notch and works great!
- New update My Acer R13 died on April 2016. See charging LED on, but no power. No warranty since it's refurbished. Didn't even last one year.... My other older Core 2 laptop is still working and, heck my 486 Toshiba Tecra 5 inch tick laptop still boots up.
I had 2 Acer tablets (one of them also died) and another acer laptop, but I don't think I'll go with Acer anymore.
I purchased refurbished model. Looks brand new.
Light, fast, and has all the feature I ever wanted at price of 1/2 of what I paid for MS Surface (or even comparing to other R13 with similar specs).
No problem running Photoshop (I have CS5, so menu does not scale, but with 13 inch screen, it's much easier on your eyes than early version of Surface 10inch). It came with bunch Acer softwares and McCafee aniti virus program. I uninstalled McCafee once the trial was over. Also came with Office 365 trial,...
I bought this laptop and ultimately had to return it. It's a great design, but had some major flaws for me.
First off, the Ezel hinge - I love it. This laptop gives full flexibility in display position, and it's a lot of fun to constantly play with different setups. One under-advertised feature is the ability to pull the screen closer while still having access to the keyboard. Basically you're able to keep your preferred viewing angle while independently adjusting the position of the display. This is my most used position, and once you've used it you won't want to go back to a laptop with a non-adjustable display.
You'll notice the border of the frame only reaches halfway up the screen. This is not a problem, and you'll quickly ignore it. The aesthetics of the laptop are still quite sleek.
First thing I noticed is this laptop is very flat. It's a thin and light design that truly feels like a "notebook" when slipping it into your bag...
