Well appreciate help guys. I bought this Acer and so far, so good. Not sure if its as fast as I thought it would be, but maybe my expectations were too high. Could be my DSL and/or firefox which is lagging my surfing speed.
I ran PC Pitstop on my old and new systems to show difference in performance.
Essentially upgrading 6 year old system. If I get about $150 for old one, that's only $150 to upgrade all my specs. Not bad.
Worse part of system so far are the physical compnents. Power button is SUPER bright and flashes when in "sleep" mode, which is ironic, because there's no way you can sleep with that light flashing. My computer doubles as a lighthouse for ships passing by, so that's nice.......
And the USB, headphone, and power buttons are on the TOP of the unit, instead of the front. Awkward. I use top of unit for either resting something on it or sometimes for my feet. Been doing that for years. Strange setup.
Hey, I know they are silly complaints, but they are important. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy all around.
