Customising the Acer Aspire S3 I purchased this laptop in late April sadly at a higher price than it is currently being sold at. I read the comments and criticisms of the item with interest. However all can be addressed with some simple configurations;1. Colours washed out – You can increase the Saturation in the Intel HD Graphic Properties (You can find it in the Control Panel called “Intel(R) Graphics and Media”) click it and navigate to “Display” >”Colour Enhancement” > “Saturation”, for my setting I slide it to 20, but it is up to the individual user whether you like more colour in it or not.2.

It really is quite shallow to other notebook keyboards I’ve used. Almost comparable to the Surface keyboard cover.- Poor keyboard layout, e.g. function keys aren’t activated by a fn + x combo, but more useful keys are; the lift shift key is cut in half; 1/3 of the Enter key is cut off; the tilde is placed oddly, etc.- The trackpad is super-clicky, but otherwise ok- Battery life is nowhere near 6hrs. I’m getting about 3 while not doing anything too heavy and screen brightness at around 75% (bluetooth off, wifi on). One might be able to get 4hrs, but I guess you’d have to be doing something as basic as word processing.PROS- I…
