BIOS and hardware upgrades: Once the 2nd drive I ordered arrived (separate packages, couple days later), I proceeded to install the 1 TB drive along with the 500 GB drive from my old system, using the upgrade kit which came with this computer. Taking apart the computer was fairly straightforward, but because Linux requires you to disable Secure Boot, I proceeded into the BIOS to enable booting from USB and turn off Secure Boot and UEFI. The BIOS password was NOT set, and I was allowed to add one of my own, but all the settings related to security and boot order were still greyed out. Despite installing 2 additional drives, and being allowed to set a password for one of them, I was not allowed to boot from anything except the 500 GB drive this computer shipped with or any kind of external media.
I called the support number in the pamphlet that came with the computer, and asked about this, but was told that Acer locks the BIOS on all computers shipped through Amazon in order to "protect" customers from changing things that might break the computer if they don't know what they're doing. He explained that all computer vendors do this to one extent to another, such as Apple with iPhones, and refused to provide me any means to unlock it no matter how technical I am. He continued that if I want to upgrade anything, I should call Acer's main customer service line and order it from them, instead of trying to modify it myself. At this point, I demanded a refund because the item was materially different from what was advertised, and effectively unusable for my purposes as a result, but he refused because the package was already opened. I pointed out the product description did not list the BIOS being locked, and based on forum postings about this model on Acer's website, locking the BIOS did not appear to be a standard configuration for this model, but he stated that's what Acer wanted for Amazon-shipped computers, and that they're under no obligation to disclose this information prior to purchase, so I replied I will simply complain to Amazon and seek a refund through them. I did try contacting Acer's customer support number listed on Amazon, and on their own website; after a few days of trying, I did eventually reach someone (average wait time of 60 minutes), who ultimately confirmed Acer intends to limit customers' ability to change boot sequence for their "protection".
Keyboard: This was a real nuisance. The 1 key, Q key, Z key, and I think a couple others make a distinct "clicking" noise when I press them, sometimes don't press in properly, and feel like they will pop out or otherwise break within about a month or so of use. It also has some weird light-up pattern that runs from left to right and flickers a bit as soon as it lights up. Almost looks like something is wrong, and might burn out in a few months.
Battery life: While waiting for the 2nd hard drive to arrive, I played Elder Scrolls Online over Wifi a little bit. Computer was fast enough to handle it, but the battery died within about an hour, despite being brand new. Given how batteries decline over time, I worry about how it will perform after a few years.
Screen quality: Says it's 1920x1080, but looks a little pixelated, which is kind of weird. I don't know how to describe it, but the pixels look a little larger than I'd expect, and the computer defaulted to a lower resolution out of the box for some reason. Nothing too special or standout-ish, I've seen better, but also not terrible.
Gaming- This is what this computer is made for. It seemingly can handle most gaming tasks at recommended settings
Screen- The screen is really nice but I do wish it was a little brighter. However, the screen quality seems top notch in my limited testing of the unit.
Keyboard- The keyboard seems really nice. Button feel nice and typing on the laptop is nice and easy.
Form Factor- Surprisingly, the computer is relatively slim and lightweight considering the amount of power the unit has.
Battery Life- The battery drains quick. This should be expected considering the computer is relatively high-powered and designed for gaming.
Design- I hate the design of the computer. It really screams "GAMING" with the design. I wish it was more subtle because I am a working professional and I don't like the design.
Sound- HOLY MOLY this unit gets really loud and hot! Just playing WoW for about 10 minutes and it starts to cook and the fans get loud. If turbo is enabled then it is insanely loud.
Heat- When I purchased this machine I fully anticipated it to get hot but the heat near your fingers is really warm. Right above the function buttons near the turbo button gets extremely hot.
Speakers- Sub par and hugely disappointing. Do not get this computer if you need quality built in speakers.
Overall, I do like this machine and it does exactly what I needed it to do. The screen is amazing and the performance is really strong and I feel like it will handle most games you throw at it with ease. I got this machine to supplement my gaming tower and to have ease of access when I want to play games anywhere in the house. If the cons don't bother you then this machine is great and an awesome value.
144 FPS is really nice.
Graphics and GPU are great for Warzone and RL. I’ve had no problems with gaming or internet browsing.
The bloatware, just remove it so you have extra space.
Norton is annoying.
The battery will last maybe 3 hours, seemingly no matter how much or little you are doing.
The fans get loud and it gets hot, I plan on getting a cooling pad.
After three weeks of use it works as it should. I study and play rocket league primarily so I’m not asking a ton from it. One thing I noticed is that the FPS drops automatically to 60 if the charger isn’t connected. Maybe I need to go into settings. I also had to adjust the brightness and wear blue light glasses because it put a higher strain on my eyes than just playing with a console with a tv. Overall, I’m very happy I got this and I think it will last a while. Very sturdy, very buff graphics and gpu, and spot on price for a solid budget friendly, higher performing gaming laptop.
I really hope I’m the only one this has happened to. If you get this product I hope it goes really well for you. The times that it worked it worked great! But the constant shutting off was enough to make me want to pull out my hair. Awful experience.

On the bright side, it is beautiful and performs well in games. The graphics are great.
I would recommend this laptop if you plan to have it in one place like a desktop. If you want portability, this is not the one to get.
