There is a microphone and headphone port, however, there's only one. It has a picture of a microphone/headphone next to it. There is also a web cam and built in microphone. I use this laptop to Skype with my parents and the microphone and camera works better than my brother-in-law's 17" laptop.

This laptop would be great for an older relative. It's lightweight, fast, and easy to use. Adobe comes pre-installed, but that's about it. Security programs and Microsoft programs can be purchased online, though. A mouse can be plugged in. I use a cordless mouse and it works great.

yes it comes with the normal stuff that most use to get you started... like Anti virus, MS office trial, and a few other things.. this computer has the full windows 7 home.. and 3 USB ports so plug in mice work fine... it just does not have a optical drive. so if it has CD ROM driver he will have to download the drivers from the internet or get a USB CD/DVD drive. but most standard PC USB stuff work fine

I am 72 and this is my second Acer 11.6" Netbook.
I have no problem using both.
This new V5 has Windows-7 Home Premium OS which is an
excelant proven and stable system.
I have used AVAST which is a free anti virus program for four years. It can use its three different types of scans to clean up and protect your computer.
I have used Firefox as a browser for six years. They have a lot of add ons and will give you a download of a Flash Plug in that is compatible with the Firefox Browser.

As far as I remember, there are several programs included but you have to install them if you want to use them. You can use a USB mouse with this computer. I use a USB wireless mouse and I have disabled the touch pad

A mouse can be used on this laptop. There are a few pre loaded programs and trial programs. Examples would be office trial, antivirus, and standard preloaded Windows 8 programs. There are also some preloaded Acer software as well.

It clearly states in the litereature provided that black ports are USB 2.0 and blue ones are USB 3.0.There are 3 black USB ports on this device. So, despite what the person from Acer stated earlier in this Q&A, there are 3 USB 2.0 ports. I'll be taking this computer back because of this issue.

This computer does not have an optical drive built in. It is designed to install software and watch videos downloaded from the internet instead of from a CD or DVD. This keeps the size and weight small for optimal portability.

With the wide availability of broadband internet, USB Flash drives and SD cards, the need for optical drives has greatly been reduced. However, if you need this function, there are external optical drives that can be purchased and attached via USB. This can provide a way to use CDs or DVDs on this computer.

My Acer V5 did not come with a touch screen , becuase it runs on Windows 7 Home Premium. Which I like it a lot.
For $50. more you can get another model Acer V5 with a touch screen and it will run on Windows 8.0.

One reason I purchased this item was that it said on the walmart description that it has a touchscreen. And when I got it, it obviously doesn't. But they have now changed their description. So no, the laptop doesn't have that option.
