Got this back in August, as student saving up for months. The notebook was running well for a 3 months. Since this is a refurbished product and when I register for extended warranty on Acer's website, it said I am not eligible. Period.
So, refurbished buyers, 90 days warranty is all you get. Refurbish buy comes with a shipping box, receipt, power adapter, and the notebook. Yes, its sustainable which is why support refurbish. Therefore, with no manuals, no OS installation dvd, and no driver dvd which I am OK with. Whats not OK is not having windows key written anywhere.
After 3 months of using this indoor staying static on desk, I notice a vertical line from top edge to bottom edge of of stuck pixels width of 1 pixel thick. Went through numerous process trying to fix it with no avails. Without extended warranty you will need to pay for shipping and the whole process to whatever needs to be fix + lots of business day time. When it comes to monitor problem, not...
I have been using this laptop for a while. I had high expectations, but in short:
Pros: Nice looking Light Well built I like speakers and sound
Cons: Mousepad is erratic, not sure why Keyboard is ok, but I did no realize how much I preferred the extra row of keys, and deeper keys until I lost them The high resolution of the qhd display becomes a problem, maybe is due to windows problems, but you have to adjust your display setting quite frequently in order to be able have the right font/icon size, it can be done and it works, but I rather not have to do it I have had a few problems with excel and paint hanging with not much of a load... seems to be a problem with windows 8 and memory management.
Hope it helps.
Best purchase I've made in a long time. Despite some harsh critics, I went on and bought this beautiful ultrabook.
Pros: Very nice crisp screen (although not very color accurate). Extremely fast boot times.
Cons: Battery. It still gives me about 5 hours of general use (Photoshop, Chrome, some video streaming etc.) but compared to Samsung Ativ, Lenovo or even Macbook Pro, it's small. I am not even going to compare it to the latest (2015) generation of ultrabooks.
