Ok, for others who want to post in this thread: If youa re planing to share your bad experience, you are at a wrong place - this turned out to be fan club of 8204 and no bad opinions allowed.
Wynand - what to add - would you expect me to write that I was super happy with 4 notebooks even though I was not? You knew I would be here posting with my old story? Okay, I loved that machine, it was just full of bugs and I gave my opinion to a guy who is making a decision whether to buy or not. Should I be telling lies? Is that what you imply? Oh, you mean not to post at all if I do not own the notebook anymore, correct? Okay, then how come that others who do not own the models that are only announced are discussing them together with how good or bad the support is? Make sure if I would be happy, I would be posting my recommendations. I am not saying that all of the 8204 are crap. I am saying - I have had this actual experience, go and make up your own mind when deciding if to buy or not. If you are happy with yours, share it with us, but why do you feel like blaming other people for what they are posting if the question was about how the users like it or not.
Basically you are coming with very unfair poll results (and you know about it!) saying it is 10:2, which is not representative. Plus that is you 8204 fans who say only unhappy people are posting here, so why do you suddenly consider these results as fair at all?
You are showing not too to tolerant attidude towards people who has issues that are rather crucial for them, but you want them to be tolerant towards ACER because: it is new and other machines have it too. I do not care - I paid, I need it for everyday work, need it as reliable high performanc notebook as advertised, which it actually was not in four cases. So what? And I still should be admiring ACER for such thing? Okay, I still have another ACER notebook which is doing great job for me, and I would recomend it, why not?
If you are not working for ACER why do you care so much? It is their marketing and sale support. If the question is why do we spend so much time bashing about this laptop...hy do you spend time to say how wrogn we are? I am sharing my experience, that is it! Whatever the product is like, if there are very many people sending it back to the Texas repair center for buzzing (for example) and with all the new calls coming about this issue they say they are hearing about it for the first time...it just shows how much of dummies they do play!? If it was a 500 dollar notebook maybe I would be promoting it it too...but this way I am just sharing my experience - what I have got for the money I paid. Facts, not opinion or compromises. I am not blaming anybody!!!!! I am just sharing facts. Facts that I have papers from and I got confirmed from the repair centers! No user sensibility or minor issuses. Maybe we could discuss how many of ACER products are dead on delivery in comparison to other brands. If you want to play that game, then play fair one and use some statistics and no personal issues. I am a journalist and I was calling ACER several times to ask for what the issue is. No answer no interest. That is their decision. If I have no explanation, I am sharing what I have experienced. Dott. If you are lucky having no issues, let the other people breath and let them be aware what all can (not necessarily but still can) happen if they would by this notebook.
P.S: yes Jaad, me and couple of hundred other nicks who are reporting issues and spend nights and days on trying to solve them and get replacements and try to enjoy the notebook as much as possible, or if possible or just are calling for having quality product for such high price ,are obviously the same person who in fact is here to constantly work on destroying ACER and their products and brand and fan club and I do not know - whatever else you want to project into it... sorry but this is getting ridiculous...
