Sounds like good specs for the price, but need to indicate Microcenter B&M only in the title. Folks will be annoyed/disappointed to see a deal post and then find out it's in-store only and they cannot order it online.

How are Acer laptops? Quality? Reliable? Do they last?

Not only that but the B&M is at Microcenter...I really hate seeing all these deals. Closest Microcenter to me is 2 hours away I think. I'm sure others are much further.

It's dual channel: 4GB soldered on board and 1 slot with a 4GB SODIMM. You can swap the 4GB SODIMM with 8GB or 16 GB for a maximum 20GB total RAM.
4.4lbs kills it for me but it would be fine for most people using it as a desktop replacement.

I would wait a few years before buying any new Intel products, due to their major security holes.

A generalization of all laptop manufacturers based on the operating system is a poor assessment of the quality of a particular manufacturer.

This makes no sense, being a Windows OS has no bearing on how long the computer will last.

Acer is OK stuff. The Aspire lineup is a lower-end series. I've had several laptops through them over the years and never had any hardware failures.

Then all laptops are "crap". Look up any brand. They all have many reported problems. It's just something you have to accept if you need a laptop.

I see many more complaints from owners about problems with Dell than I do Acer.

Got an Acer for my college kid, he used it all 4 years, then 2 more years after that, got a replacement battery for it somewhere in those 6 years, wife uses it now.
