A close friend of mine ordered one a few weeks ago and she is very, very pleased with it click here
I was so impressed that I've bought one for my wife as a desktop replacement, and she is similarly pleased with it.
Shannon (my friend) uses hers mainly for graphics manipulation and it performs really well.
I wouldn't like to carry one around with me, but as a desktop replacement machine they seem very good. My wife has only one negative so far - the keyboard has, she says, a little 'give'. I noticed that it hasn't stopped her from producing some very large documents though. I was looking at the system the other day as she was working on it and its screen is very nice.
Gigabit ethernet, WiFi, DVD multi-format drive, good graphics, lots of memory and a fast processor. It's a great bargain.
Never having owned an Acer myself and after seeing both Shannon and my wife so happy with their machines I am giving some serious thought to buying one for my next notebook.
I've watched Shannon throw some pretty impressive graphics work at it (Flash, Photoshop, Ulead PhotoImapact XL, Fireworks, MAYA etc) and it's never missed a beat. Some of her still images get up to two and three hundred megabytes and the laptop has handled them all without any fuss.
Both machines were delivered next day and both have no issues at all.
Be advised that you get a driver disk which also features the preinstalled applications for recovery use. Booting from the disk allows you to use the other two system restore disks to put the drive back to its as-delivered condition. The fourth CD ROM is a trial of Norton Antivirus 2004; just use that one as a coaster ;o)
Also be advised that the hard drive is partitioned into two 27GB partitions. There is also a hidden partition with some rescue data files, but you have two 27GB partitions to work with.
The really nice part about this is that if you use the recovery disks to rcover your system, the D: partition is left alone so if you use it to store your data it is safe from being overwritten in the event that you have to run a system recovery. You should still keep an external backup of course, but it does give you a useful level of protection right from the start.
I'm impressed enough to be considering buying one for myself. Read into that what you will, but as a long term Toshiba and IBM buyer that is pretty high praise.
