Acer Aspire E17 E5-721-69FX Notebook Review

acer aspire E 17

 

If I buy another laptop, I do not think I will buy another acer.

The SD card slot is in front and does not go in all the way like previous models. I do not like that at all, plus the sd card slot is not working as of today

Really slow processor, even though it's quad core. Makes the whole laptop just feel sluggish ; The touchpad is HORRENDOUS - it's slow to respond, skips around like crazy, just not accurate and the surface is very easily covered with oils (thus losing...
