Great performance
Screen is nothing special, too many preinstalled programs
I bought the laptop to use as my my main computer and couldn't be happier. I wanted a new system that could play Call of Duty 4 and also bring to class to type my notes. The battery life is roughly over 2 hours if you fiddle with the settings, which is good enough for me. The screen is fairly low quality, but I have mine hooked up to a large monitor most of the time anyways, so it's no real hassle. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a gaming laptop.

powerful enough to play my games, fast, great second computer
battery life
battery life isn't all that great but I just plug it in so its not really an issue for me. Love the look of it and all the features it has. I sure would recommend getting it.

bright screen, great layout
none so far
I am so impressed with this laptop, the performance is great, have yet to run into any issues with slow speeds due to "bloatware". The graphics are amazing, the keyboard layout is large, there is lots of room to rest your hands as you key and the sound is really good for a laptop.
Watched a few movies already, very good graphics.
Great value!

incredible amount of features. wireless worked flawlessly out of the box. very bright screen. runs vista very well.
useless amount of software that comes with the laptop.
I was very impressed with this laptop, i was very hesitant on buying a laptop in the first place but now that i did i'm very happy i did so. with the exception of the standard useless suite of programs that came installed with the laptop i have not run into any problems what so ever.
Set up was incredibly easy and the wireless worked straight out of the box which was such a relief for me as i have been having issues with nic cards and routers recently. the touch pad is very responsive the screen is bright and colorful as well i haven't run into any game that doesn't run smoothly on my system.
overall i would recommend this laptop to anyone in the market looking for one. for whatever your doing this laptop can do it all just as long as your not looking for a really portable.

Fast processor, 3GB memory, 250GB hard drive, crisp screen images, comfortable keyboard, accurate and responsive track pad, lots of ports including USB and memory card readers, fast 802.11N compatibility built-in, it's a beautiful looking machine.
Somewhat heavy, low batter life (2:30 max), recovery partition instead of recovery disk, available drive space is partitioned into two for some reason, the sheer amount of pre-installed bloatware will make you want to toss this thing into a lake.
The first thing you'll notice when you pull this laptop out of the box is how beautiful it is. It has a "PS3-like" black finish with a sleek gray interior and attractive LEDs on the special function keys and power button.

However, when you load it up you'll see that there are over 70 processes running. This is where you have two options (I chose the second); you can wipe the hard drive and install a clean copy of Vista (which you'll have to purchase due to lack of recovery disk), or manually uninstall bloatware such as Norton Internet Security and Acer Empowering Technology. (Which does empower, rather, slows everything down)

Acer Empowering Technology is supposed to make managing laptop features like power management and wireless connections easier. However, Vista has everything that this software suite does - and does it better.

So, I went ahead and uninstalled most everything. I then repartitioned the hard drive, so I have one data partition and one recovery partition. (There were two data partitions initially, you can merge them right in the OS through disk management though)

Now that I've uninstalled the bloat and reinstalled my own software suite (AVG, Spybot, etc.), this thing is lightning fast. It's able to play most modern games on high settings, and can even run Crysis on Medium at a good frame rate. I didn't buy this for gaming though. The fast processor is able to encode a full-length DVD movie in mere minutes, and the built-in burner does a great job and burning DVDs. (Even dual-layer!) It comes with a burning suite, but I installed my own software.

The only lowpoint of this notebook is the battery life. Even with Aero off, you'll find it hard to manage much more than 2:30. In other words, get another battery or bring your charger with you.

Once you get over the bloatware and low battery life (and turn off UAC!), you'll find a fantastic laptop for the price. If you can nab this one at $1099, do it! Even at $1199 it's a great deal. For gaming, multimedia, even work, you'll be glad you have all of this power ready to tag along. This review was modfied by poster x 04-15-08 08:38 PM

Video card
Battery life
bundled softwares
In my mind, acer is the best on combination of price and quality. This phenomenal laptop never cases amazing me. The new penry T8100 and 3G ram make vista runs like fantasy. 512M Geforce 8600GT lets me have great experience on the most of popular games such as cod4 and css. The sound system is getting better, compared to the previous laptop series. Since this laptop is quite big(15"4') and the battery is only 6-cell, the mobility seems like to become the major weakness. Overall, it's really really good desktop replacement. Oh, by the way, I beg acer stop installing bundled softwares. Other than empowering, they are a bunch of crap. They are useless and slow down the system, especially trial version ones. At lease, give customers an option to choose if they want to install or not.

The design is amazing for the price.
The pure processing power of this "BEAST" is amazing.
Quiet and not so hot.
The keypad could have been a bit better.
To many quick key on both side of the keyboard.
Where to start ... The price ... need i say AMAZING for what you are getting. The design is great, look great and feel great for the price of course. It’s quiet and cool while running vista and doing word processing. It start to make little noise and come hot when playing game but it's far from being annoying or burning the desk. Everyone at work where like don’t get this laptop it's going to be crap but since i got mine 2 people are looking at this page right now saying .... should i get one.

I could go on and on for ever on how much I love my new toy but ill say this to end .... am love and about to kick the wife out so it can sleep in the same bed as me.

Great feature set, great CPU, excellent build quality, nice design, gobs of on board dedicated GPU memory, a truly powerful laptop for a great price.
I am not so fond of Vista, but it is beginning to grow on my (like a fungus)? Weight maybe...but lets face it, this is not an ultra portable, nor does it pretend to be.
So far, I am VERY impressed with this laptop. Bang for the buck it has to be one of if not the best deal going right now. I too was fortunate to pick one up for the very reasonable price of $1099.00. The new design of this series honestly was not something I thought I was going to like. I looked at a few of the lower-end Acers, but they are no where as nice as this unit. The fit and finish is second to none (ok maybe Mac), and I actually like the new design and colours.

I am amazed at the amount of CPU, GPU, memory and HDD you get at this price. I compared Toshiba, Dell, HP and others and this is honestly the best I found.

In the short time I have owned this I think I have talked 2 friends into buying one, and that was simply by telling the about how I like it so far. In my opinion, you cant go wrong with this model. I was not a huge fan of Acer, as I thought them to be of lower quality. I guess time will tell but for now, it looks like I was dead wrong.

Buy it, you know you want to!!

Great Processor
Just read the specs
I got this on sale for 1099 bucks and it's more than I was expecting for that price. The 8600m gt is a pretty good vid card and overclocks like a dream. I could push it to 650/1300/430 without the gpu getting over 65. I'm not too sure that overclocking a gpu in a laptop is a good Idea but I wanted to see what it could do. Got a score of 4800 on 3dmark06.
Good overall build quality and this thing is pretty fast. If your looking for a gaming laptop on a budget this is for you.

New T8100 Penryn Processor
512 MB DDR2 8600M GT video Processor
3 GB DDR2 667mhz ram
the overall head-turning design
none for this price!
I was one of the lucky ones who bought this beast of a notebook for the awesome price of NOT $1199....but $1099! Honestly, at this price, you'd be hard pressed to find a notebook that has 3 GB ram and a full 512 MB 8600M GT for this price. Definately can't complain! No dead pixels, low heat temperature, and ran amazingly quiet. Vista HP boots up really fast. It has about 2 hrs and 10 mins battery life and the keyboard keys, feel a little loose as you run your fingers across the keyboard, but that's ok. Runs universe at war on high at 1280 X 800 and company of heroes perfectly with little to no hiccups.
