4 months in and the wireless adapter has already malfunctioned. Acer wants the machine shipped to them which will take 7-10 days (considering they abide by their word, which seems dubious, consider their below pat customer service experience so far). For a college student who has finals next month, how is this providing any relief? The laptop is useless without a working wifi and living without a machine for a week or so is far worse! Why can't Acer have technicians come in or at least have a repair center in major cities?
For a 1700 machine, I'd expect better quality control and FAR better customer services experience! My advice: stick to better brand names like HP, Dell or Lenovo. Acer doesn't seem to give two hoots about their customers, seemingly.
