I wanted to contact you about an experience I just encountered. I had my Acer Nitro 5 sent in for repairs weeks ago due ot spill damage, and they could not fix it. That being said, I did go to the store to get a replacement. However, the exact model is no longer sold, so I got the "value" of the laptop back on a card and bought another. The unfortunate problem is that my new laptop doesn't do everything I wanted it to - juggle school work and be able to play games. I'm mostly disappointed becasue when I went to the best buy website, I did find the very same laptop that needed replaced, just in a different color. That was never an option for replacement though. Now I feel as though I'm stuck with this one when I should have been able to have the one I originally had. I'm incredibly disappointed.

So yes. I might just have to do that, because it seems as though everytime I answer a Skype call, it crashes and I lose half of the document that I was working on )))) I'm honestly more irked that a different color of the SAME SPECS is considered a completely different model, so now I have a computer that is rather uncomparable to my old one. But whatever, I will NOT buy another laptop from this place again.

I'm sorry to hear that the computer you got isn't working properly. Losing work you've done is always a terrible feeling.
As we discussed, you should be able to return that computer within 15 days under our Return & Exchange Promise. If there's another model you want that's more expensive you should be able to pay the difference.
I hope you're able to find something that works for you.
