It's an amazing laptop for the price (550 for me), however it has its pros and cons, you have to be willing to trade some features for anothers, this been said, here you go:
-Materials: It's NOT a 1000$ laptop, so you are NOT getting a 1000$ case!! If you expect so, then go away and buy a Alienware or ROG, this is a 600$ laptop intent to light gaming and daily duties... And please dont be that people that buy this laptop and keep complaining about its quality or sturdiness.
however its perfectly fine for normal use, the keyboard and touchpad are a little loose when you press it, but again, not a dealbreaker for me, like i say, you have to trade a feature for another.
-Touchpad: It's not a normal touchpad, is a "Precision touchpad", no that precise and configurable as i like, windows wont let you use the edge scrolling only two finger scrolling so get use to it.
-NO DVD DRIVE (read carefully), it has not a optical drive in it, this laptop comes with a black tray, again not a dealbreaker for me, actually this was perfect for me because i replace the black tray with a 9.5mm WONENICE HDD CADDY and put in the 1tb drive in the slot (SATA 3GB/s), using my SSD in the main slot (SATA 6gb/s).
PD: Dont worry about the front bezel, the black tray comes with a fully removable front bezel, so you take it out and attach to the HDD CADDY, remember to buy a 9.5mm caddy, cuz the 12.7mm wont fit in this laptop.
-Perfectly match CPU and GPU for this price, Intel i7-5500u, Nvidia 940m... It took me about 2 weeks looking for the correct laptop, and at this price im more than happy with it. I could not find a better specs at 550$, in this price you can have a 6th generation SKYLAKE cpu with no GPU, IMHO always is better to have dedicate graphics, no matter the CPU have a 5% less performace, same thing with the HQ cpu's, obviously you get more horsepower but again at this price no gpu so....
-Display: Again at this price i could not get a better specs, its a full-hp 1080p TN display, excellent display BTW, good no great view angles, good bright, good colors, no glare at all, great for gaming... for me and for the price is a perfect panel.. again, look and check for the price and you'll only find 768p displays.
-Battery: great battery life with this 4-cell.. i get about 4-5 hours with medium load.. obviously gaming you get as much as 1 hour. however who plays in bat?? it is no logical thing to do.
-Excellent electronic build quality: When i did the ssd-hdd switch (about 30 minutes after i got it) i took off the down cover exposing the motheboard, and what a pleasing surprise it has a excellent build quality!!!! 10 year long-lasting electronic, easily.
-Temp: this topic amaze me more than it should!! the fan refuse to turn on even with 1080p video playback, temps in idle are 29-32 for CPU, with Nvidia optimus GPU wont turn on at least you open a game... while Playing (FC4, CODAW, ACU, WD) CPU temp stays at 70, GPU gets as high as 75. the chassis wont get hot at all and the fan is hard to tell its on with the game sounds and stuff.
I think already talked a lot. so for conclusion, if you are a gamer and got a lot of money to invest go with a game-build laptop.. otherwise you want great overall performance for your money go with this one. i strongly recommend it.
- Use an SSD with it. (boot time: 6sec- shutdown: 4sec)
- Make a fresh windows install to remove all bloatware, dont worry about the windows 10 key, its embedded in the mobo so if you reinstall windows 10 HOME edition, no worries about the license, it not even ask for it.
-put an addicional RAM stick, 4gb, 8gb, whatever but up to 16gb combine... this is to activate DUAL-CHANNEL access. its gets about 25% better performance.
-it is pretty thin laptop, i love it.
Most negative reviews I read, the biggest complaint, is they say it feels cheap. Very few negative reviews on actual operation, just on it feeling "cheap."
I can understand that. It does. Its all plastic. I question how long it will last. All my previous laptops (with the exception of a very old Samsung) are still alive and running. I wonder if this one will be, that long from now?
But, that's the thing. I don't think it was made to. Non-replaceable battery, RAM is an ordeal to replace, but they make things like adding a SSD a breeze. (which is a HUGE plus)
Under the plastic hood, its a beast. Dedicated video GPU with 4 GB of dedicated RAM. And the NVIDIA 940M, is no slouch. Its 6th gen, i5 on the CPU... but that's still up to date. 8 GB of regular RAM (and unless you do heavy video editing, of very large files, you're not going to need more).
Build quality, while it is plastic... is surprisingly good. So while it may be made of cheaper materials, you might not run into an issue unless you repeatedly drop it.
I've decided to go the 250 GB SSD HD options, and use the 5400 RPM 1 TB HDD to store data. I don't know why we're still using 5400 RPM drives 20 years later... but that's pathetic. And most laptop makers, still use them. A Solid State Drive is lightspeed faster, in comparison. Windows bootup times sub-10 seconds. Plus, its blatantly obvious when the drive is the holdup on things. Just antiquated tech, they're still using.
They also have several different models of the E15, ones with lighted KBs, ones with touchscreens, etc... and they're even cheaper. This was the gaming rig, because I wanted power. Its got that. So I give it a big thumbs up!
UPDATE: What a nightmare, that could have been spared. As a former computer technician a couple decades removed, I figured I could pop in the SSD, log into the BIOS setup for Flash Drive install of Windows 10. Then change the boot sequence, to boot off the SSD.
Problem #1: The BIOS as configured, DOES NOT recognize a SSD drive, UNLESS it is plugged into the primary HDD slot.
This means opening up the computer.
Problem #2: If you did what I did, purchase a tray, and SSD (250 GB EVO), assemble those, pop it into your Acer, you forever will be caught in a "Choose Which Windows You Want To Boot." Doesn't matter if you format the old drive. Still has the Windows boot software on there. OK, so I figure I'll redo the partition and a full format. That's when the problems really started. The laptop worked great the entire night. Even being powered down a couple times. This morning, it says "No Bootable Device."
Back to that BIOS problem I was telling you about. Doesn't see a SSD, so it can't be put in the boot order.
OK, so I decide to reinstall Windows on the old drive. I'll find a workaround, once I got it up and running. I'll skip the next 8 hours of nightmare, that started then.
SOLUTION: When you order this laptop and your intent is to add a SSD (and/or RAM)... you MUST disassemble this laptop. If you don't mind taking out about a dozen screws, its not that big a deal. Just don't try and rip the two halves apart, once the screws are removed. There's a connector, you want to be careful of. Don't be intimidated, though. Its really not that hard. The HDD will be on the left hand side (under the KB). Carefully, slide it back, up and out. Remove the rubber cradle and slip it onto your SSD drive. Slide it into the plug now.
Snap the laptop back together and insert screws/tighten. Boot up into BIOS, make sure it sees the SSD as the new HDD. Boot up with a flash drive and install Windows. I would not place the HDD into the open tray slot, at this time.
Once Windows is installed, all your drivers have been installed, etc. THEN and ONLY then, would I put the old drive in the new tray and slide it in, where a CD drive would otherwise be. BANG! You now have a 8 - 10 second bootup Windows laptop, with 1 TB of extra built-in storage.
It does everything I need it for. The processor is good, the graphics card isn't going to run any modern AAA games but it will at least run AAAs released through 2014, and it has an adequate amount of RAM. The screen is serviceable, but it's not going to blow any minds. With the screen turned down, the battery lasts 4-ish hours with medium usage (Chrome with 6 tabs + and IDE roughly).
I love the feel of the keys. They feel great for the materials they are made of. They made me a fan of chiclet-style keyboards (a la Macs). I actually like the size and positioning of the touchpad better than the newer Macbooks with their bigger touchpads, as I find that I end up touching the touchpad accidently while typing. (I'm not sure what the Surface laptops are like.) The touchpad is great in terms of input, it's very responsive and you get all those swipe functions that you'd expect on higher-end laptops. The arrow keys and Home, Delete, etc., keys are really squished on the keyboard, which is kind of annoying, but pretty standard for laptops. The half-height up and down arrows are probably the weirdest part of that. I love that there's a full-size numpad, as that was one of my requirements when looking for a laptop.
The combined NVidia/Intel graphics driver is great but updates for no reason all the time. There's no way the 940m can run any of the games they update for, so I'm really not sure why they even bother.
