The 1080p 3ms 144hz IPS display looks great and also has great viewing angles. If you've never used a 144hz Panel before, you can never go back to 60Ghz monitors for gaming again. 144Hz ruined my last gaming laptop because the difference is extremely noticeable (in general, it feels smoother when you move in games) compared to 60Hz panels. The webcam is passable at 720p. It's fine for chatting with friends or zoom meetings but not recommended for anything beyond that. It also cannot work with Windows Hello. The 10th gen Intel i7-10750H 6core 2.6Ghz base clock speed processor is very efficient, powerful, and has decent integrated graphics (which the laptop will prefer to use when you aren't playing games or doing any kind of intensive work that would require more GPU power). There's a lot of value in this laptop given that this CPU alone is sold for $400 and the laptop also has an RTX 2060 6GB. The RTX is the newest architecture that has the ability to do ray-tracing. If you don't know what that is, it's realistic lighting effects that developers are putting into games now, but you need a card that has the ability to process it or you can't take advantage of the feature.
The RTX 2060 GPU is very capable. My average FPS with very high settings on Assassin's Creed Odyssey was 70. In GTA V on high settings, it was 115. Interestingly, this laptop has a button called Turbo. Now, there's no overt explanation for what it does when you take the laptop out of the box and don't read the manual, but it essentially overclocks the GPU for you and kicks the fans into hyper-drive to compensate for the extra heat involved with overclocking it. In terms of performance, on the two games I tested the FPS on, it gave me an average of a 10FPS increase. It is noisy though when the fans are on full blast. I have to give credit to the fans which Acer advertises as "4th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D technology" and the thermal management of this design because even when the CPU and GPU are being stressed, the laptop stays at a reasonable temperature, and by that I mean you can game with it on your laptop while sitting down without it becoming too uncomfortable. Aside from the Turbo button, there's also a Predator button on the keyboard. Pressing this opens an application that shows you the current temperatures of CPU/GPU and even ambient temperature inside the laptop itself overall. You can customize your lighting profile here, overclock your GPU with 3 speeds (normal, fast, extreme), and you can set your fan speeds to a custom setting or leave it on automatic. Because Acer has this application that controls these settings from OS, the UEFI BIOS is pretty sparse. You can't customize voltages or do any kind of manual overclocking, but since the application does all that for you, and many gamers don't overclock their system because they think it might be too complicated or risky, this makes it easy to do so with a simple click of the turbo button or drop down menus in the application. Speaking of the BIOS, you're going to want to go into it (spam F2 when the laptop is powering on), and disable the annoying POST sound. By default, when you turn the laptop on, it plays a sound file that sounds like a jet engine firing up for some reason. I turned it off because I found it incredibly annoying, but I'm thankful the option to do that existed in the BIOS. Other than that, there isn't a whole lot of customization to do in the BIOS. It also has WiFi 6! It comes with 16GB of RAM (two @ 8GB) but the DIMMS are user serviceable so you can put 32GB (two 16GB) if you wanted to with no issues.
The OS comes per-configured somewhat, using performance metrics for the OS (such as not using the Aero theme). There is some bloatware which I recommend removing.
In terms of build quality...this is where the laptop starts to show its low price point. The entire laptop is made out of plastic, and it flexes really easily, especially the panel. The plastic trackpad is just OK, it will function for web browsing and light tasks but it's not that responsive overall. The two small cutouts for the sound underneath the laptop is a really bad design flaw I wish more laptop manufacturers would get away from. Please just include top facing speakers. The speakers themselves are already not great, so when they're shooting downwards it makes it even harder to hear some games even when the volume in game is at 100 and the operating system volume is also at 100. For this reason, you'll want headphones to go along with the laptop.
The ports available are:
Left side--Kensington lock, RJ45 ethernet, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 3.5mm audio jack
Right side--Mini-displayport, HDMI, USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port (gen 2 adds charging capabilities even when the laptop is powered off), and USB-C using 3.2 Gen 2.
Behind--Charging port. Kudos to Acer for putting the charging port in the center behind the laptop.
Acer rates the battery as being up to 6 hours, but don't expect to do heavy gaming on this laptop while you aren't plugged in. I got about 2 with some minor downtime between games.
One thing I want to talk about is the design of the laptop. It does look good, but I think Acer needs to think about the type of person buying this laptop. It's going to be mostly students who want a gaming laptop that they can also use to bring to class. I don't think that gaming laptops necessarily need to look like "gaming laptops". A more subtle design and the removal of any kind of LEDs on the exterior of the laptop would appeal to a much wider audience in my opinion.
Overall, this laptop is an incredible deal. For what you pay, you're getting an incredible capable gaming laptop
X2 M.2 slots for storage PLUS a SATA bay for even more
RGB zoned keyboard (and a great feeling one for gaming / everyday tasks)
BIG vents on rear and sides, PLENTY of intake area on bottom
The thing just looks awesome, props to the design team for making a gaming laptop that looks professional
Predator sense UI is clean, loads quickly, and easy to use
With ray tracing on I saw around 60 fps on COD war zone with settings maxed.
Not so much CONS:
Fans get loud under load, but they react quickly and bring temps down FAST. It's an RTX machine, what can I say?
Audio could be improved, especially BASS... but you've read this before with any laptop ad I know you'll be using headphones for games
Power connector is in the rear center, you have to account for hardware layout here however
BATTERY LIFE - probably the biggest complaint here, I would have absolutely spent an extra $100-$200 for better battery life if possible
STORAGE CAPACITY - Would have liked a configuration on Amazon with 1TB + of this amazing nvme SSD
Included case feels nice, but should have an extra pocket for the power brick (considering you'll almost always need it)
All in all a lot of this goes without saying, but what is worth repeating is that this computer has 100% exceeded my expectations. This is the laptop to get mid-late 2020 if you want a 10th gen Intel chip and RTX. Thank you ACER!
Top reviews from other countries
I just want to give a word of advice to new potential buyers and existing owners of this laptop: be aware that with this laptop, you may experience the two following issues:
1) When plugging in headphones or a headset, if you do not also connect your laptop to your charger, you may hear static noises constantly. Keep in mind though that this static noise is very hard to even perceive in the first place if you are older or are hard of hearing. Consequently, this may not even pose a problem to most of you, but as an audiophile, it did bother me quite a lot. I suppose this issue might be linked to some kind of grounding problems with this model, seeing as connecting the laptop to its charger solve this issue completely.
2) There is a Windows 10 update (that I never could pinpoint) that makes your sound not work at all anymore. Your speakers won't play, your headphones, your headset, nothing will play anymore with this laptop after this update. Moreover, no amount of drivers uninstalls/re-installs and IT tinkering seems to be able to fix this issue. To solve it, the only solution seems to reset the laptop, and cancel any non necessary Windows 10 update from then on.
I am aware that these issues might be specific to the laptop I received. But for those of you that end up with the same problems I had, I hope this review will be of assistance to you.
My son loves this laptop, and it's been working for him with no issues.
