I have always bought cheaper laptops, $200-$300 HP's. And I end up getting a new one every two years or so. I decided to step it up a little this time, and from the hours of research I did, this is where I ended up. So coming from those cheaper laptops, this thing is a dream, I mean it is the Ferrari of laptops. It's fast, and I mean instant kind of fast . The SSD (solid state drive) is what I understand makes it so fast. It's pretty, and clean, and feels and looks expensive. The biggest complaint I read about this laptop before I bought it was the screen... If there is a problem with this screen, I can't imagine what the people complaining are used to looking at... It's perfect, I mean I have a nice quality 1080hd TV hanging on my wall, and the picture on this laptop screen is every bit as good. You can view it from every angle also. I play a little Minecraft, I never knew how awesome it could look until I got this laptop, I downloaded a shader pack for it and ran it on the highest settings... Perfection.
Also, the keyboard IS BACKLIT, there seemed to be some confusion in the Q&A section on that but I assure you, it is backlit (see pictures). I never had that before, and I never realized how valuable it is. I will never have another laptop without backlit keyboard when I'm on it at night on the couch, it's amazing to have.
If you're not a computer person, and you're having a hard time making a decision like I was... Look no further, this thing is amazing.
**UPDATE: It's been about 5 months now and I would still highly recommend this laptop. It works as smooth and fast as the day I bought it, and now I have loaded with apps and programs. I am the person that has 20 windows at a time open and it never bogs down. Tech gains have slowed significantly in the last 10 years or so, making this laptop as relevant as it was 5 months ago when I bought it.
- Can't beat the value for the power you get
- Exceptional keyboard and touchpad feel
- Below average screen brightness about 200 nits, average is 250-275. You'll have the brightness turned up all the way all the time. (yes it' IPS display but they had to cut corners somewhere to get this price) It should suffice for your average user. It's not usable outdoors when it's bright out though.
- I had issues with it occasionally not waking up from sleep and system crashing when doing intensive graphic applications (this may be a software issue though so may be just fine for non-power user) Also the mouse pointer sometimes disappeared. Most of the time I could resolve by closing the lid and then opening and rewaking, MOST of the time. I wasn't willing to waste hours troubleshooting so it's going back.
- Timeout on keyboard backlight not adjustable. It goes off in 30 seconds meaning (at least for me) 80% of the time I have to hit the shift key to wake the keyboard light up which sort of defeats the purpose of having a backlit keyboard so I can see the keys BEFORE I start typing (without having to press a key!) I thought this was very minor but over time it got very annoying.
If you're a power user, I'd probably spend a little more on a different unit. If you're on a tight budget and want the most bang for your buck, I'd go ahead and give it a try. As you can see from the reviews it worked out fine for most people. But like buying tires for a car that had bald tires, everyone loves their brand new tires. It takes a while to see if the until continues to be stable. But it may in some cases be Microsoft's fault and not Acer when you run into problems.
Top international reviews
The best thing about this laptop is its very impressive all-round performance. An i5 processor + 8BG RAM + 256Gb SDD + discreet GeForce MX150 graphics all for £649 (when I purchased – 04/03), now (08/04) £599 (Wow!) represents about the best performance per £ that you will get right now. I shopped around a lot, and I couldn’t find anything with an equivalent spec. for close to the same money. And it certainly is a quick laptop, all booted-up from cold within about 20 seconds and with a generally very snappy performance.
I'm *not* a hardcore gamer, so I don't benchmark Battlefield performance statistics or anything like that. I've only played Tropico 5, but I was able to ramp up resolution and detail and texture levels to pretty much maximum with zero performance impact, so it meets my 3D graphic requirements impressively.
Add a Hard Drive
The internal 256Gb SDD is a Micron mini-card, physically mounted directly to the motherboard. This means that the drive bay is empty, so you can install an additional HDD or SSD to boost your storage space. However ... see "Installing Additional HDD/SSD" below.
Again, you usually pay more for a laptop with a backlit keyboard, so more great value here making using the keyboard in even the gloomiest of conditions a breeze.
English International Keyboard Layout
This laptop has an English *International* (ENG INTL) keyboard layout as opposed to an English *UK* (ENG UK) layout. That means that your @, ", and # symbols are not where you expect if you're used to the UK layout. And good luck finding the "£" key (clue: it's not there). Tip: You can hold down the Alt key, type "0163" on the numeric keypad and then release Alt for the "£" symbol.
Touchpad / Right/Left Click Buttons
Now some people don't seem to have an issue with this, but I do. Presumably due to cost saving, touchpads screens are no longer physically separate from right/left click buttons. The bottom part of the screen also acts as the right/left click buttons. This means that when you press your finger to click, you can *also* move the mouse cursor. No problem for my competent left-click and you can always just tap the screen for left-click. However, my less competent right-click tends to involve me mistakenly moving the cursor when I press the right-click button, resulting me right-clicking on the wrong thing. I find this really annoying ... but I can live with it and it's no deal breaker.
Installing Additional HDD/SSD
In order to utilise *properly* the free HDD/SDD drive bay, you need to purchase an inexpensive ($8 direct from Acer US shop) "HDD/SSD Assembly Kit", Part# 42.GDEN7.SV1. It's possible, but I would not recommend installing a drive without the proper mounting assembly. However, Acer US does not ship to the UK. I searched *hard* and *nobody in the UK stocks this part*. Things might change, but I had to use a shop-and-box service where a US boxer orders my item, then forwards it on to the UK which cost me a total of $35.32 - more than 3 times the price of the part!! Come on, Acer. Sort out your UK parts distribution!
Presumably to save on cost, the battery is not housed in a separate, removable unit. It is connected directly to the motherboard and inaccessible without taking the laptop apart (not recommended if you are not experienced in laptop hardware repairs). However, Porkee Peeg's excellent review states that it *is* possible to replace and not *too* challenging, but it's always going to be trickier than buying a new assembled battery unit and just popping it straight into your external laptop housing.
Muted HDMI Audio Output
Now this issue is quite specific. I use my laptop as a media centre, so I have it connected to my TV via HDMI. *Every time* a sound is initiated, the first few 10ths of a second are muted. This does *not* happen when using my old laptop, so I know that the Acer is the root cause. It's not a great problem; once sound is playing, it's just fine. But every time your Windows notification alert goes off after a period of silence, you only get the last 'ding'. To be clear, this *only* happens when outputting audio over HDMI.
I've only used my DVD/RW drive for DVD playback and it seems to struggle a bit with even brand-new DVD discs. I sometimes have to eject the disc and re-insert, which usually seems to do the trick, but it just seems a little unreliable (maybe more cost-saving here).
Now I'm not too interested in aesthetics; I'm much more about the performance. And beauty is subjective, but I think this thing's pretty ugly. It has far more awkward angles and slightly raised bezels compared to the smooth and clam-like feel of my old HP Pavilion. The construction quality also just feels a little less of a priority compared to the solid feel of the older HP, so a few marks lost for that. However, perhaps my old HP sets a quite high benchmark and I'm sure if you look after it it'll last just fine.
A fantastic performer for the price with only a few minor drawbacks. I've been using it for about a month and, so far, I'm very pleased.
Sigo esperando me den respuesta de la reparación por parte de un proveedor autorizado, pero de parte de ambas empresas se han estado lavando las manos y echandose la bolita a ver si me canso o pasa un periodo o que se yo... que terrible, yo ocupaba este equipo para trabajar y ya no puedo, super dificil que te resuelvan de manera satisfactoria.
Pero sobre el producto en especifico la review? pues no sirve la pantalla, ustedes diran.
This laptop was made in 2017 and the specs are still great, for $999 it is value for money!
The only negative is that you kinda need an “ACER HDD/SDD Assembly Kit -part# 42.GDEN7.SV1” if you want to add another hard drive to secure it properly. The part and shipping from ACER Canada website is $30.
Otherwise, it's a beautiful laptop with amazing resolution. With the SSD it boots up super quick. My mother law was tickled with the back lit keyboard. She watches TV in a dim lit room, so this was extra handy to have. We also like that this unit has some upgrade capability, RAM and extra hard drive bay available for a later date when it's time for her to get more hard drive space for relatively cheap price, so it's going to last her years.
- Screen has awesome resolution.
- Love the upgrade-able options which will keep this laptop running well for at least the next 10 years before having to buy a new one.
- Upgrading is simple and components are easy to get to when the time comes, just a few screws to remove and replace on the easy to access back panels.
- Back lit keyboard is great for those who use the computer in dark spaces or for seniors who appreciate keys that are a bit easier to see.
- SSD - Super fast boot up.
- Laptop is incredibly light (well in comparision with my mother in law's old one), and keeps cool on the lap while running. If you are running programs or games that demand a bit more work on the system, it will warm up, but over all, it stays cool.
- Cord issue as mentioned above.
- If you are a heavy gamer that demands high specs from RAM and video graphics card, this is probably not the laptop for you. Moderate gaming OK. Check out Youtube videos on this model, there are some great ones that break down which games will run great, and which others may have issues with lag with this laptop.
- Price. I've seen this laptop with similar specs at about half the price in the US, and on Amazon.com, so not sure why the huge difference in price for selling it in Australia. With that said, and after shopping around via online sites for computer places in Australia, not many places carry laptops with these high of specs (we're talking a screen of 1080p or higher, 258 GB SSD, i5 quadcore processor) for a lower price. Guess it's just the way the market is in Australia.
In any event, I decided to spend the little extra money to get a decent laptop that is built to last a while (and getting a few brownie points with the mum in law doesn't hurt either :) )
Well...Given my mother in law's reaction, it was worth the purchase.
- Excellent Battery Life - even on maximum performance + brightness settings: 8+ hours.
- Fast: Very fast due to SSD plus its expandable: Extra Ram Slot + Hard drive/SSD slot.
quick tip: contrary to the other review, you DON'T need an acer assemble kit to install an additional hard drive/solid state drive to install it.
- Backlit keyboard - easy to type and it lights up every time you type.
- No silly bloatware.
- Two Graphics Cards: Nvidia MX150 + Intel 620. - They work whenever they're necessary, and you can edit the settings manually as well.
- 720p HD Camera - Camera is great as well, far better than 480p cameras in other laptops.
- i5 8th gen + boost up to 3.4 ghz is amazing, I never experienced any form of slowdown.
I am proficient in technology (10+ years) as I have owned an HP laptop AND desktop, Toshiba laptop, Acer laptop (different one), ASUS laptop, and a Dell laptop. This laptop is a 10/10. Do yourself a favor and buy it.
En general una excelente compra a pesar de sus limitaciones.
Me gusta: la velocidad, de encenderla a estar en Windows, tarda 10 segundos.
El teclado es preciso aunque la sensación es esponjosa.
Por el precio, es un buen sistema operativo, rápido y hasta ahora confiable.
El trackpad es preciso y amplio.
Silenciosa, el ventilador no es intrusivo, apenas y lo notas.
No me gusta: la pantalla, es HD, pero opaca y sin brillo, como un cielo nublado.
No tiene sensor de huellas para inicio, se extraña
El tablero se ilumina al contacto, es una tontería pero me molesta que no tenga control de encendido o intensidad.
Es pesada, si es para traerla de un lado a otro no es la mejor opción.
Es fea, esto en un medio como el nuestro puede ser bueno (menos llamativa) o malo (se ve bastante anodina)
Cómo ven es una mezcla que no la hace mala, pero tampoco adorable.
En este caso lo que decidió la cuarta estrella fue el precio.
