Is this a good laptop for the price?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
With pics!





Here is the lappy:
STAPLES CANADA

It started at 629.99, went down to 599.99 then down at 529.99 and now it's at 499.99. I'M SO TEMPTED IN BUYING IT. Will do when it becomes 399.99

I heard a lot of complaints about it overheating. but it's 499.99! Should I sell my lenovo x120e and buy this guy? or just keep my lenovo x120e? I feel like my lenovo is SLOOOOOOOW. even with an SSD (and it's freaking SATA2)

It's better than the X120e in certain places, but falls flat on it's face in others.

Bad

1) The battery is not removable (meaning that if you're unfortunate enough to get the panasonic battery which degrades 1% per day, then you're screwed).
2) The overheating issue REALLY is an issue. Like melt the notebook hot!!
3) Screen is super grainy and has horrid viewing angles
4) The i3 while good, lacks turbo and certain additional commands of it's i5 big brothers
5) As good as Optimus is, it's still not very well supported by Nvidia and their partners.
6) Chunky and heavy for a 13.3

Good

1) Very good specs for the price
2) Depending on where you're located in Canada, Acer can usually have your notebook fixed and returned to you within a week.

It might help if you actually gave us some useful information about it, not all of us have a list of postcodes that are valid in each country, having to try adn find a canadian postcode to have a look at the link isn't very conducive to my policy of not helping people who make my attempt to help as awkward as possible, but htis is OCN so you get a reason for why this post aint helping you rather than this spost just not existing
