I love the fingerprint feature. It loses signal for the internet a lot while the other electronics in my house do not so its not my internet. Every so often the letter r and t presses nonstop until you restart the computer which is hard to do with it doing that. I think it's too late for me to return it

Have it with the i5-7200 CPU, 8 GB ram and 250GB SSD hard drive. Love the hardware! It opens quickly and shuts down fast, at least some of that is due to the solid state hard drive. Since memory is now cheap a 64-128GB memory stick should allow more than enough file storage for chump-ish change if needed. CPU has enough power to run videos and such effortlessly. First bought laptop I've owned that can fully replace my desktop. Very good for the money. If it lasts like my Acer netbook naught but smiles on this purchase. Then there is Windows10 and the spam-ware load. (eye roll) Until you start giving the spam the big swirly in the delete bin it's just a sales tool when ever you try to do anything. And Microsoft keeps removing more control by the user with each new system. If you are also new to 10, there are some decent guides on changing your settings so it isn't quite so wide open. Now I need a good users guide so I know what the @#%&& is under the hood. Such is life. :-) Forgot to mention what annoyed the most about Windows 10. It treats your system like a client, with limited power and memory, rather than a powerful computer. There is no reason in these days of cheap memory and large hard drives for any important personal documents to live in the cloud. Just ask any Photo Bucket user about their files.. AND the auto updates are potentially a huge security hole since you have no ways to stop it.

I've had this laptop for about a month now. I find this laptop to be pretty quick. Has 7th gen core i5, 256gb ssd. It's pretty light compared to the old toshiba I used which was 4.8 lbs, the Acer being 3.3. I initially wanted an ultralight weight notebook, 13-14 inches, <3 lbs but after watching youtube reviews of the class and looking at pricing, this seemed like a really good alternative, though I did have to go up to 14 inches instead of 13, it was worth the sacrifice for me. The laptop is light, thin, easy to carry. The keys are easy to type for me, I almost like the sound they make when I type. As far as the concerns people have, I can see where they are coming from. The screen looks a bit dimmer than others even when plugged in. Obviously you can change settings when unplugged. It is a matte display, not glossy. Some complain about the fan noise and having used this for a while, I think it usually happens when it's plugged in or doing some heavy intensive apps. Though I haven't had the chance to max the CPU, it's been very very very quiet for the most part. I only noticed the fan noise in the very beginning when I was booting up computer out of box and setting up the laptop. Since then, it's been pretty quiet. One thing that can definitely be improved on is the trackpad. It doesn't feel as responsive to use. I concur with others on the nice metal finish, solid feel, and speed. I previously owned an Asus (which broke apart, poor plastic build), an Acer Aspire Timeline X (pretty solid construction), and Toshiba (plastic, recently screen hinge broke, though I did drop that). It seems Acer laptops in my experience feel solid and not flimsy. This model is also really competitive on pricing, which is why I gave it 5 stars for now. I definitely see this as an alternative to overpriced Macbooks. I'

Right now, I'm loving my Acer Swift 3. I was a little leery about buying, what I considered, a lesser known and proven brand. But I went with it based on a recommendation on Reddit. This thing is ultra-light and lightning fast. I'm able to sign in within 10-15 seconds of pressing the power button. The laptop is very aesthetically pleasing. It's got like a metallic silver top cover and base bottom. The inside bezel is more of a flat grey metal which makes perfect sense as it reduces light reflection. The keyboard has space between the keys which is a huge advantage to fat-fingerers like me. (Not that I actually have fat fingers, I'm just a poor typer, so I make a lot of mistakes when I type fast.) The spacing helps reduce errors. The size makes it very portable, as it's only a few inches bigger than my Chromebook. Power consumption is not a problem, but that's after removing some bloatware. I'm not even done removing all the bloatware, and I'm still researching a few programs to see if I might want to actually keep any. This is my first time owning a Windows 10 machine. I'm still wrestling that beast, so I can't really speak to it, other than to say that there is a learning curve which will only be an issue for novice pc users. Intermediate and advanced users will eventually learn where everything is now. The only concern I have is that I'm worried about the outer casing being dented, so I handle the machine with extra care. I don't know if the metal casing will handle wear and tear better than other machines, but the person that suggested it did so knowing that build quality was high on my list. I've had the machine about three weeks, and will post back if any issues or repairs are needed before the machine ages to the point that merits problems.
