Features

Windows 10 operating system
Windows 10 brings back the Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, like the Edge Web browser that lets you markup Web pages on your screen.

Acer ComfyView technology reduces reflection. Typical 1366 x 768 HD resolution. LED backlight.

Intel® Celeron® processor N3160

4GB system memory for basic multitasking
Adequate high-bandwidth RAM to smoothly run multiple applications and browser tabs all at once.

128GB solid state drive (SSD)
While offering less storage space than a hard drive, a flash-based SSD has no moving parts, resulting in faster start-up times and data access, no noise, and reduced heat production and power draw on the battery.

Intel® HD Graphics 400
On-processor graphics with shared video memory provide everyday image quality for Internet use, basic photo editing and casual gaming.

Weighs 3.2 lbs. and measures 0.9″ thin
Ultrathin and ultralight for maximum portability, featuring a smaller screen size and omitting the DVD/CD drive to achieve the compact form factor. 4-cell lithium-ion battery.

Wirelessly transfer photos, music and other media between the desktop and your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone or MP3 player, or connect Bluetooth wireless accessories.

1 USB 3.0 port maximizes the latest high-speed devices

He has run BBS services, Fido mail, and even operated his own computer repair business.

  1. I am alone most of the time and I only have this small phone to communicate with and I would consider myself a very blessed lady if I won that Acer

  2. My computer is 10 years old, got a #10 size boot in the screen, been hacked, then fixed, now all of my colors are screwed up on the screen besides the fact that it is so out of date I cant even update it anymore, I live on disability, and am trying to take care of my mom with Alzheimers, and my husband who has PTSD from the war. I really cant afford a new one. Keeping my fingers crossed. I would love and cherish a new one.

  3. Bonjour Mr Richard Petersen et à vous tous ….
    Merci beaucoup à vous et la société ACER, pour ce cadeau à gagner.
    Hi Mr Mr Richard Petersen and everybody …..
    Thanks you very much and ACER Compagny , for this laptop to win.

    From France , a bautiful country for freedom, and we love democracy, America and the World too.
    JM GIROUX. A très bientôt !!!!!!!
    Dijon Bourgogne .
    METEO : Sunny, t° :30° Celsius .

  4. Thanks Dave for all the helpful information that you provide. I could really use this laptop for traveling. I have been spending a lot of time at the hospital with a family member. This would help pass the time.

  5. I would like to win this as it would be ideal for travel to store and backup photos on the go.

  6. I would love to win for me and my husband he travels a lot and this would be great for us to keep in touch with!

  7. Dave, is that you, Dave? (old-fashioned comedy 🙂 If I win this I will give it to my wife, and then I get her old dinosaur laptop! 🙂

  8. Would love to win so I don’t have to drag my 17″ Big Ole Laptop when I travel. It’s really weighing me down!

  9. Man this would make my running of my business so much easier – I could really use this – Acer is great too!

  10. hello,
    thank you for the chance to in the acer laptop
    if i won it would keep me busy at the hospital.
    I spend a lot of time with my husband , he has congestive heart failure
    he is in the v.a. a lot.
    It keeps our one drained a lot because of all the trips
    so this win would be a blessing

  11. My partner, soon to be married has an 5yr old HP laptop which is sooo slow and is in needing a major upgrade. Have heard the Acer TravelMate is a good all round laptop that will suit her needs.

  12. Disabled and in need. My current 11″ is running XP (and won’t upgrade).
    Thanks for the offer.
    Good luck to everyone that enters.

  13. I want to win this contest because i could use this for my school presentation and research. and also i dont have a laptop to use so i enter this contest hoping to win..☺☺

  14. I’ve always been a desktop pc person and have wanted a laptop that can do more than the ‘specials’ at the stores. This is a nice laptop that could make me a happy man for sure.

  15. I am a walking MIRACLE ! I had a brain bleed behind both eyes, and a horrific aneurism down the right side of my head. – Long story short — I have lost my short term memory & all my happy times, even giving birth – I work part time in fresh seafood. Constantly have to write notes, they get wet. As well at home, I ask the same questions, over & over. Meaning either be buried 6 feet under, or deal with the miracle I was given to live. My poor cell phone, is so filled with messages and notes, My Cloud is so Full and I cannot afford to add more. Note pad on passenger side of car, and in my husbands vehicle, another in kitchen, laundry room, play room/office, out side shed, and my bed side. Plus, I could create files in my email, to hold and store my photographs. Giving me access anywhere in the world, and if my desk top fails or gets a virus, I will never lose my memories. Most new laptops do not even have an SD slot, or a disk. Meaning, all other photographs we have stored on disk and SD cards – in future we will not have access to important documents, videos, and photographs, etc. I would be so appreciative to win – My life would instantly become so much easier. I could take the Acer TravelMate anywhere I went ! From work, yard, fishing, grocery shopping, long car rides, to the library, museum, vacation, and so much more ! Thank you for such an wonderful Memorial Day Giveaway – Just getting home from work – glad I made the deadline to enter 🙂

  16. Would love to win this ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight laptop to replace my really old, bulky and heavy one!
