1. A dedicated graphics card that can play modern games, at least, on medium settings.
2. A premium leaning screen.
3. Better cooling when under stress.
4. At least a mid-tier CPU.
5. Various other design qualities that make it stand out (sharper edges, colorful lights etc.)
My experience in gaming laptops have been mainly with Alienware (the latest being the 15 r2 line with the GTX 980m).
Firstly, I am overall very impressed with this Acer laptop, in general. With every put together with the feel, the look, and the operation, I can say this is well made and it compares very well with the Alienware. Where it does not match the Alienware is in the case quality. As for the rest? The Acer is equal to or better on almost every level. Here's why:
Very vibrant and deep colors. Does not wash out greens/blues and looks very clear in pictures. There is a little grain on fonts and screen edges. Can be turned bright enough to easily work in sunlight with about 30-40% wash out in sunlight. Almost no angle diminishing, probably 2% if any ... at almost 180 degrees. This is a testament to the LG IPS screen. Therefore, you can work in the sunlight very easily with the brightness turned up, and regardless of the angle you are looking at the screen, the images stay the same with no angle 'washout'. Superb screen performance.
Travel of the lid is about 140 degrees; does not lay flat.
A little on the cheap feeling side. Not necessarily a bad thing. Does not attract fingerprints. Matte and rough texture like the lower end laptops you find in stores. The lid has the vertical 'line' pattern that are slightly raised. While the case feels roughly the same as, say, one of the lower end laptops in stores I say this isn't a bad thing because the design and build is so well done. The case doesn't flex, and the overall design is sleek, sharp, and...very good to look at. If you remember the line of Asus laptops that took their inspiration of the stealth bombers, this is similar, except think of this as a Jet-Stealth bomber, with none of the bloat.
Light for what it is. Will be fairly light in the back pack. Can be easily picked up with one hand.
Typical size for a 15" laptop. Will slide easily into carrying cases/backpacks because of the thin overall presence.
Matte and smooth, does not attract fingerprints. A very light 'thud' sound that does not 'click' and does not clack. Extremely quiet to use. Quality is good and similar to Alienware. Better quality keyboard than most laptops you find in this line.
Only one brightness setting for the backlit keys. Home and End keys are at the top, though the Home is above the backspace and End is above the asterisk. The PGUP and PGDN are together between home/end. A bit strange that they spaced out two keys between Home and End, however at *least* they didn't put the Home/End on the left/right arrow + Fn. This is a very suitable laptop for programmers as well.
Backlit is a cherry red, with the WASD keys being outlined a little more in red. Backlighting is even and goes quite well with the overall appearance of the laptop.
It is difficult to find a fluid/sensitive/lag-free touchpad in any laptop not named 'Mac'. Thankfully, thankfully, thankfully the touchpad here is very smooth with no-lage. There are no separate 'click' areas, such that the entire touchpad is one solid platform. So, then, it clicks like a macpro. There is no left right click distinctions except for the 'left' side is left click and right side is right click.
Extremely sensitive and almost up to the level of a mac. Usually touchpads are lousy on almost all PCs and this one is one of the best I have used. The clicks, however are hard to press. So they require a decent amount of pressure to use.
*Negative* - When holding click and dragging a window, there is lag (like most laptops I have found).
Dead quiet for normal browsing, the fan runs a 0%.

For the price, you are getting a very good gaming laptop that allows medium-to-high settings at 1080p, with a very beefy CPU. Overall laptop stays cool even when under stress (89 C or below), and has a decent build quality. For general browsers, or semi-hardcore gamers who want a great keyboard, touchpad, and beautiful screen this has exactly that.
One of the reviewers did a great service by posting benchmarks. That review sold me on it and it was an absolutely fantastic choice!
+ I absolutely LOVE this laptop. I know this is subjective person to person, but you don't want to buy something that you don't love, especially when you're spending a grand.
+ BEAUTIFUL monitor, color, etc. It's sharp. It's the best display I have in the house.
+ Shutting down and restarting the laptop is done effortlessly. With the i7 processor and the SSD, this guy shuts down and recalls faster than you're anticipating. There's been plenty of times I've looked away and it's already back.
+ Plays World of Warcraft at 60FPS on medium-high settings. The only dips are in 20 man raid environments, but by only a few frames and the only reason I noticed was because I turned the frame counter on. (As a disclaimer, I never turned on shading/lighting due to past experiences with other systems having lower framerates and higher temperatures. I just keep them off on every system now. I'm not saying don't do it, but since I never turned it on, I can't judge how well it handles either.)
+ I haven't noticed the keyboard or laptop getting hot while playing games. I did notice that heat is getting blown out the back, but that's a good thing, as that proves air circulation and heat dissipation.
- Bloatware. It's almost to be expected. I'm someone who loves a clean system and I spent about 15 minutes to half an hour clearing out crap.
- The top of the case does feel kind of cheap, but it looks fine. The rest of the laptop looks and feels buttery smooth.
You have negatives, why vote 5 stars?
I could care less about the top of the lid, since I'm not even looking at that when the laptop is opened. The rest of the laptop is an absolute beauty and performs like it should cost more than MSRP. I can't recommend this laptop enough- seriously. Unless you're looking to do high-end gaming (which at that point, I'd beg you to build a desktop), please consider this laptop.
So far this computer has been great! It is quite light, compared to my previous Asus laptop, boots up in less than 30 seconds, has great battery when not gaming, remains cool when gaming and has a great feel to its keyboard. Some small cons: I feel the mousepad could be slightly better but I never use it so I don't really care. Also, having to get an installation toolkit for Acer to add more storage memory is a little annoying.
Gaming wise, I've played Overwatch on highest settings and get over 60 fps all the time, have ran FFXIV perfectly at its highest settings and have been able to play The Witcher on High with fps around 50-60.
The major drawback, that made me give this 4/5, is that the Wi-Fi stopped working a couple days after I unpacked the computer. It seems that my Wi-Fi is recognizing available networks and connecting to them, however it tells me that it is connected but no internet is available. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly fine until this happened and I can't seem to be able to fix it. I have re-installed my drivers and even reinstalled Windows and I can't seem to fix this problem. I use my computer connected to ethernet, however this problem will become annoying when I need to travel. If anyone at Acer or other users have had this problem please let me know how to fix it.
