This review is from: Acer AS5560-Sb256 15.6-Inch Laptop (Mesh Black) (Personal Computers)I've had this laptop for over 24 hours now. First of all I would like to thank Amazon for the fast shipping, ordered it on Friday night around 9pm received it Saturday at 10am.
My first impressions are that even though its a plastic case, its sturdy and seems like it will withstand the abuse of being carried around in a backpack 5 days a week. I love the keyboard, and having a 10 key number pad on board is a big plus. Laptop boots up in about a minute maybe a little less. Web browsing is quick and responsive, watching videos on Hulu and Netflix in HD is great. Speakers are loud, not the greatest, but better then any other laptop I've owned. I don't play many games on computers, but I was able to play Fable at max settings, and WOW on medium settings with no issues at all. The Multi-Gesture touchpad works well. I manage to spend about 3 hours typing a few essays, connected to the internet while listing to music all on battery before I started this review and the battery is at... Read more

Nice Laptop... If you like the keyboard you'll love this system.,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Acer AS5560-Sb256 15.6-Inch Laptop (Mesh Black) (Personal Computers)The way prices at amazon bounce around is getting a little out of hand. I paid an effective $409 after the mastercard $20 off promo and a Target 20% off Amazon gift cards deal. I looked at a lot of laptops prior to getting this one. The screen is nice, better than the 14 inch Timelinex model which has horrible viewing angle issues and an extremely glossy reflective screen to the point it was a pain to use. It also runs cool and quiet. It also seems to run a bit faster/smoother than that Timelinex model I tested with an I5 processor and 6 GB ram vs. this A6 with only 4 GB. The keyboard is less than perfect- I don't like it as much as the chicklet style on the Timelinex. Its not terrible- I suspect I will get used to it.
Out of the box the screen looks bad and the track pad blows. I was worried but adjusting the settings of each made a dramatic difference. Make sure you look for those settings and change to your liking. I have seen some complaints about the lcd and trackpads... Read more

Returned it; still 5 stars,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Acer AS5560-Sb256 15.6-Inch Laptop (Mesh Black) (Personal Computers)I compared a lot of systems, and this one came up tops for power and features. It lasted less than a week, however, before I had to return it.
The only problems I had: the keyboard and the trackpad. The keys are flat. Completely. (Except for tiny bars on the F and J for touch-typists like me.) It's seriously easy to press two or more keys at once. Multiple Sclerosis makes my fingers kind of numb, and even though I can still touch-type on systems with slightly cupped keys, I can't feel the placement of the flat ones. I'm a writer, so I need a keyboard that doesn't hinder me like this one did. The other issue, for pretty much the same reason, is the trackpad, particularly the single button. It's a rocker, so if you press the right side of the button it's the right-click. If you press the middle, or close, nothing happens. Were my dexterity slightly better, that would be fine, but even Web surfing was a minor pain when I'd click a link and nothing would happen because my... Read more
