Do you really think Dell or HP computers are any better? From what I have seen, Acer tends to get higher ratings on customer satisfaction. They are like the Hyundai of computers, they once were cr@p, but have steadily improved to the point where they are commendable budget products. This is how companies form. Nikon and Canon, along with many other Japanese camera brands, used to be considered junk. Photographers used to buy primarily from Leica and Zeiss. Look at where Nikon and Canon are now, and where Leica and Zeiss have fallen. More recently, look at Japanese automobiles. They used to be considered low end junk. Who thinks that now? Things change.
One big thing with Acer is that they don't load very many 3rd party applications onto their systems compared to HP or Dell. This isn't really a problem if you're tech savvy and reinstall a clean operating system on your computer the second you get it out of the box. But for the average consumer, performance on a Dell or HP feels much slower than a similarly specced Acer.
As for the Adamo, still way to expensive for not very much power.
