Overall: "Hi All, This is my first acer laptop and here is my opinion abt the laptop. I bought this laptop mainly to do my app support on win xp(win xp will not work with this laptop.)The pre installed linpus linux is a lite version of linpus linux(only text commands ll wortk.no GUI).so i downloaded linux 12.04 from net and when i try to install through pen drive,it doesnt work(pen drive installation is not supported).so i found a dvd writer and burnt the installation iso. Installation is also very bad(since this machine is built to support windows 7&8)it took 4 hours to figure out wrong things in installation and sort out.after 2 days of working with linux i got frustrated(most app wont work with linux).then finally i downlaoded win 8 trial version and installed.win 8 is bit slow but no errors and al. getting 4.30 hr battery life on 0% brightness.keyboard is bit crowded.sometimes my palm touches keypad and moves the cursor(bad placement of the mouse pad)speakers are not even audible if your environment is bit louder. finally i am not able to register the product in acer(it shows null pointer exception).acer customer care is just but bunch of idiots.even flipkart ppl don know what to do... win xp installation tells as hardware corrupted.USB ports are also slow only.if you insert local dvd,then the drive will start vibrating like anything.also don know how to extend ram(there is a seal saying you void your warranty if you open it)don know how to expand the warranty overall i am disappointed"
