Good hardware design + good software design = great computer.

Acers aren't built to be used like enterprise laptops, that's for sure - mostly plastic, stiff mouse buttons, not really sleek or slender. Their displays also tend toward the lower-res and heavy side.
But they do work well, especially for the money. They are well designed, and the (mostly) good design makes up for the lower-tier parts used within.
The thinkpad line when made by IBM was THE standard for enterprise laptops, with the Dell Latitude line a close second. Today, they are decent, but a far cry from what they used to be. The plastic is much thinner and weaker; metal hinges have been thinned and reduced.
To anyone buing refurbs, I'd strongly recommend enterprise class refurbs.

|kristinNY||I've had two Acer laptops too, and I really liked them both. In fact the first one lasted through 5 years of daily use as a college student (during which I traveled a lot and moved back and forth across the country twice), and was still fine when I decided I wanted something newer and sleeker. I opted for a Toshiba, which a lot of people recommend over Acer, and I absolutely hated that thing.|

I didn't know they were "much maligned" but I gues I am not disagreeing with you as you are saying you think they're better than Lenovo. One other note on Lenovo though: The Thinkpad line is excellent. Still the best laptop keyboard I've found.

But seriously, is this the best deal a NEW i5 laptop can offer at this price? Hmm...

I bought one for my mother. Nice unit for this price point. Lenovo outlet is hit or miss with stock and this unit IS better than a Celeron or E series AMD by far. (Well not ALL Celerons but the low end anyway)
And I got it for free,, sort of. I have over $900 in rewards I am trying to burn.
