I recently bought this and have been quite impressed with the value. Sold by Acer certified refurbished, came in like new condition. It does come with a 2 year warranty by third party (I received email shortly after purchase with confirmation). Screen is a nice size, like others have mentioned, although it's taller dimensions to standard screen sizes means there's almost always black bars on top and bottom of videos, in addition to a fairly large bottom bezel. Screen not best suited for outdoor use.

It IS bilingual keyboard, however, it has a standard sized shift/enter button so it's less of an issue than other biling keyboards. Some buttons require holding function key which can be annoying.

Highly recommend given the specs and price point.

I had bought this laptop as a certified refurbished a few weeks back. It's a great laptop and I prefer the 3:2 screen over the 16:9 screen since the screen size is small. For touch typists, this is a essentially a standard keyboard layout, so, no issues with typing. I use this laptop with two 1920x1080p external monitors by using a USB-C hub that I purchased on Amazon. Lastly, you can charge the laptop using a 65 watt USB-C power adapter. So, by using a USB-C hub, it's nice that I only have one cable to plug in/out when I take the laptop off my desk.

As for the original post. I would pass on it...8GB is limiting and not very future proof.

I had two consecutive duds from acerrecertified and would never go down that road again. To their credit they were quick to replace and eventually refund with prepaid shipping return labels, but the positives of the experience end there.

No touch screen (on both 8GB and 16GB models).
