This is my third computer in seven years; my last one, a refurb from O.Co lasted two years and I was thrilled! Hadn't given much thought to what I'd want if I needed a new one... until I had to with no notice. I'm no where near techie status, but I read a lot and try to keep little nuggets in the forefront of my brain; I didn't know anything other than I wanted an Acer when pushed to decide. I'm so glad I chose it! I had also ordered a refurb Dell at the same time to compare... the Dell went back in the box at first glimpse ~ thus, in fairness, my opinion is not based on performance. I've had this for about six weeks and am still in the honeymoon phase... the ONLY thing I can complain about is the poor placement of the keyboard with regard to the size of my hand, I guess; the heel of my left palm is very likely to hit the control key or a neighboring one, usually opening a new tab & leaving me scratching my head! It's a bit smaller than my previous one and I'm very happy with that as well. I would HIGHLY recommend a laptop stand with a fan; I chose the Master Ergostand and appreciate the many levels/positions available. I live in the desert and firmly believe that overheating led to the demise of my two previous computers. As I grow into this computer and become more familiar with it, I'll return to add more info if I feel it's warranted or useful. I'm happy!
