biased, but I would say that most of the Acer hate is from frustrated users that do not know how to maintain a computer.
If you could see some of the filth that I see on a day to day basis you would facepalm.
my system overheats = small cat inside the fan
my screen is blurry = chicken grease all over the screen
my keyboard doesn't work = spilled a liter of cola on it
etc., etc., etc.
