Review Acer Aspire ES1-512 15.6-inch Notebook (Black) : Acer Aspire ES1-512 15.6-inch Notebook (Black) - (Intel Celeron N2840 2.16GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, LAN, WLAN, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8.1 )

Boy... how I wanted to hate Windows 8. I have a pathological hatred for calling programs 'apps' and hate everything so God awful simple that the GUI looks like something out of Playschool. I still hate those aspects with a vengeance, don't get me wrong. But quite frankly I don't see what the fuss is about. The Windows 8 interface has taken all of 10 minutes to get used too with all its simpleton focused big brash boxes; and it's evident that all control over the PC remains intact for all those non-simpletons who actually remember what it was like to have to understand how an operating system works.

As for this Acer laptop... I am absolutely blown away. My first PC cost me well over £2000 in 1997; the last Sony Vaio laptop I bought in 2006 cost me well over £1500. This cost me a fraction over 200 quid and functions flawlessly.

You gotta love technological advancement. This is a brilliant laptop at an unbelievable price; and although I utterly hate the practice of reducing an operating system down to a series of big, bold boxes a retarded squirrel with ADHD could comprehend, I nevertheless love the operating system too.

The only problem is that the new generation are so far removed from how a PC works with this simplification, that give it a few years and I'll be surprised if people can actually plug a PC in without being spoon fed a bright big, 'plug in here' box.
