+The hardware in this computer will allow you to run brand new games on ultra graphics easily, while running other applications at the same time
+THE SCREEN! Ohhhh yes the screen, it's so nice. It's sharp, the viewing angles are spectacular (definitely an IPS screen), and the picture always looks amazing.
+The audio is pretty great for a laptop. It can get pretty loud and sounds good. Don't expect a lot of bass or anything like that, it's a laptop.
+Keyboard and touchpad are what they need to be. The keyboard is very responsive, nothing super weird going on with it, the keys feel nice. The touchpad is the same way.
+My old laptop used to plug in from the rear of the computer, and it caused so many problems. It was also very loose all the time. This laptop does not have that problem, it plugs in firmly from the left side of the computer.
+This laptop is COOL. Not looks wise. I mean, it is cool looks wise, but I haven't really had it get hot yet while playing Shadow of Mordor, League of Legends, Rust, PUB, Dark Souls III... I don't know if it's possible for it to get hot. Buy a cooling pad if that becomes a problem for you I suppose. The ventilation is configured in an awesome way.
+SSD for essentials and HDD for space. Basically a must for a gamer. SSD writes at about 200MB/s per NOVABench. Starts up before your toast will finish.
+Thunderbolt port for all you hyper-nerds out there.
+Too much RAM for it's own good.
+Battery life is stellar for a gaming laptop. A solid 3-4 hours when not gaming. When you are gaming, it should be plugged in anyway to properly supply the hardware with the power it needs.
+The laptop in general just feels good. A bit heavier than the other laptops I looked at, but it had better hardware too. It feels solid though. Not flimsy, and still not too heavy. Monitor doesn't flex when opening at all, and the hinges hold it well in any position.
+Basically, in games like League with my frames uncapped and graphics all turned up, I get 200 FPS, 38ms ping, and everything is super responsive. Literally all of the hardware inside this computer is stellar.
+The screen isn't perfect. I noticed some slight tearing for a few seconds along the top of the monitor when in a cinematic in Shadow of Mordor once. It went away, but a little disconcerting.
+The screen also doesn't do blacks well. Most of the time instead of black you can very plainly notice yellow splotches on a solid 50% of the surface of the screen. As soon as it is lit (heh) with color this goes away though.
+My biggest complaint about the laptop is something I can probably fix with macros and keybinding, but it is suuuuper annoying. There's no keybound volume control! I mean, there is, but it only works when you're on the desktop and recently opened the volume mixer on the bottom right taskbar. As soon as you open a game, or any other application, you can no longer use the keyboard to change your volume. I can probably fix this myself, but it's just annoying to even have to deal with. There are four options function keys on the top row that could've easily been set to control volume, but nope. Instead it's on the number pad, and like I said only works if very specific conditions are met.
+Some of the bloatware was messing with my programs. Dolby audio would keep changing my volume randomly before I turned it off. BUT, for the most part the software that comes with the computer is somewhat helpful and nice.
+No CD/DVD drive, so if you ever have serious issues, like blue screens, have a bootable/repairable USB drive ready to fix it with.
Overall, after looking at all the other laptops in the market, they all seemed like they had some major downsides. More so than the ones I pointed out. The only thing that cannot be fixed is the screen issues, but they are so minor they will not detract from your experience with this laptop. All the other laptops I looked at had lesser hardware, cooling issues, cheap structures/keyboards, worse screens, or some other pretty major problem. Not this one. Get it.
edited: so I've had this a week, 7 days exactly, and the Bluetooth device has failed. Device manager no longer sees it. Try contacting Acer support with no luck. It is clear from the cludgy form they put up, that doesn't even work, that they do not want to hear from you.
Going to research returning this thing because if the Bluetooth has already failed, and no not a driver issue, then the motherboard is not far behind.
edited again: after much fiddling and a couple of reboots the Bluetooth device is showing again so I don't think this is an Acer problem but more likely some sort of windows 10 weirdness.
- Boot up in less then 10 secs.
- i7 7700HQ + 16gigs of ram make it fly by anything you demand it to do.
- Performance, gaming wise, is very good for its price. You can run almost every game on ultra settings, 1080p, getting 55-60 fps or more.
-Dispite the solid performance and bulk size, its quite quiet.
- Its also super cool, like, no throttling problems, ever.
In a word? Perfect.
