The Review

about my acer..
It’s GREAT. It’s only 1300$ (best deal for me 2 months ago)
It can handle NFS Most Wanted and Carbon at 800×600 res, MAX details smoothly . You’ll find it a little bit slow at max res (1024×768).
It scores 2500 3d05 marks. Not yet on PCmark05.

It’s design’s average. Build quality’s not bad. Screen resolution and angle is enough for me.
Not superbly FAST in daily performance (not as fast as core2 duo) but is DEFINATELY faster and better than my old desktop (P4 2.6cGhz 512mb, Gforce fx5200).
Acer says HDD’s 160Gb. But actual size for me is like 145Gb.

It’s not hot, not cold either. It’s warm. Comfortable warm for me (especially i live in WA ). It’s not heavy (for me).
Wi-fi’s signal is average (strong enough).

Portability? It’s definately portable for me. It’s battery life is pretty good.
With 0% brightness (which is acceptable. I sometimes turn it to 0% when doing long assignments), Wi-Fi bluetooth off, Minimum Performance (50% processor usage), i easily get 3+ hours (Even 3.5h if constant usage).

It has keyboard flex too. But not big issue. HP keyboard issue is more troublesome.
Overall it’s satisfying but not something to be proud of.
It’s futureproof, it has decent graphics, fast enough; Most Important, it’s a GOOD DEAL for me
