IMPORTANT UPDATE: Acer released a new BIOS update for this laptop :) it now supports all four lanes for pcie x4 NVMe SSD's are supported now! Attached is a picture of the speeds I get using CrystalDisk. No more 1.5 GB/s cap, it is at the proper 2.5 GB/s, MONSTER! TO be honest however, I do not notice any edge of my seat speeds that "wow" me, but wow is this laptop fast regardless.
-Nvidia GTX 960M. Come on, really? Can you get such a graphics card in a laptop for this low of a price? Not only that, it doesn't feel specifically like a gaming laptop because it's light too!
-Light for a gaming laptop (5.1 pounds)
-Sleek, very attractive backlit keyboard along with a red line that lights up under the silver "Acer Aspire V Nitro" logo under the monitor
-i7 Skylake processor. Newest generation processor so it's futureproof and gives you no worries about keeping it for a while. 6700HQ is one of the best processors you can get for a lightweight gaming laptop and if you're on a budget looking for a nice simple gaming laptop, this is one of the attractive features
-IPS Monitor with 1920x1080 resolution
-Comes with 8 GB of RAM, 2133 mHz DDR4. 8 GB is usually more than you need but there are exceptions for laptops because they do slow down
-Always sounds great, not loud at all!
-Not mod friendly..at all. HAHA but it's alright as long as you give yourself a lot of time and the proper screwdrivers. Take your time when opening this up, the motherboard is surprisingly fragile. Disassembly is basic enough, however.
-Battery life is not great, as expected of a gaming laptop. Could probably get 4 hours on power saver mode, doing lightweight work.
-Seems to be a little on the hot side for the CPU and GPU.
-Needs an SSD
-Wi-Fi has issues with 5.0 GHz I believe?
-Buy more ram, you will appreciate the performance boost. I personally bought the Kingston Technology HyperX Impact 16GB Kit, 2400 mHz.
-Buy an SSD. I bought the 950 Pro 512 GB. Also bought an 850 Pro 256 GB, fits right in simply
-Buy the Killer CUK Doubleshot Wireless-AC 1525 if you want the 5.0 GHz network connections. Very important
-If you are scared of the heat problems, buy some Antec Nano Diamond Thermal Compound Formula 7 and apply on the two spots under the heatsinks
All in all, I love this laptop. Display is beautiful, aesthetics are gorgeous. The laptop screams power, affordability, sleekness, and comfort. You do want to at least replace it with an SSD for gaming-worthy performance, but that's the only necessity in my opinion. I installed my new parts right away and it took me a couple of hours as I was being very careful. It booted up nicely and I fell in love. Windows 10 does have some battery issues I believe, it does kill the battery life, but hey, how much more can you ask for? Best gaming laptop in the price range.
GUIDE TO DISASSEMBLE:
1) Unscrew all bottom screws
2) Open laptop
3) Use a card to pick out the keyboard top
4) LIFT LIGHTLY so you don't hurt the cable ribbons, and remove them from the motherboard
5) Remove the cable at the top of the keyboard from the motherboard
6) SSD slots and Wi-Fi card are easily accessible from this point on.
7) UNHOOK ALL CONNECTIONS, simple enough right? SO BE CAREFUL
8) You don't have to unlace the wi-fi cable but do put it to the side
9) Unscrew two screws, the ones located on the fans
10) Pull the motherboard to the left, then down, the pull up to remove it. This is to make the ports come out of the laptop frame safely.
11) The RAM is now accessible from this point on
12) Remove the screws from the heatsink in THE NUMBERED ORDER THEY ARE PUT. (Small numbers next to each screw). MAKE SURE TO PUT THEM BACK IN THE SAME ORDER
13) Clean the thermal paste already applied, and apply new thermal paste!
14) Close her up and call her a beauty :)
Samsung 950 pro m.2 512gb ssd (as my main OS drive) *you will need a screw for installation.
Samsung 850 pro 1TB ssd (plenty of professional grade storage for my work and games)
G.Skill 32gb(16×2) 2660mhz ddr4 sodimm (cfd software is very demanding in memory)
Swapt as recommended for the killer 1525 wlan card (much better signal than the stock atheros)
Completely boots in less than 5 seconds. In short, given some effort, you will put together a great laptop with better specs for the price point. In my case, about $1900 after taxes for everything. You'll be hard prone to find another laptop with similar specs for that price. More likely than not, you'll pay closer to $2500. This set-up will keep me cozy for the next 4 years or so.
It also has a decent dedicated graphics card in it. Its not as bleeding edge as the rest of the laptop but it can play current gen games at high-normal graphics.
Long story short, if your looking for something portable with the latest hardware in it without completely breaking the bank this is a good bet.
My one current complaint is the trackpad. The mouse button is integrated into it in a way that makes clicking throw off the cursor a bit. It might just take some getting used to but it is a touch annoying currently. (EDIT) It sometimes degrades to unusable quality. This is worth a star in my opinion.
(EDIT) This appears to have an M keyed M.2 slot. They should indeed have 4x pcie lanes available. (DOUBLE EDIT) Support says it is only sata despite the M key. M.2 slots are a bit confusing but I'd assume that it cant hit 4x speeds.
(EDIT #2) A few additional items were requested by the commenters.
The battery life on this laptop is pretty good, I'd say it gets the rated four hours if your not using it too heavily.
The laptop is not very mod friendly. You will need to unscrew a dozen philips screws on the bottom of the laptop and then use a pry tool on the top edge of the laptop. Once you have the top of the laptop (the keyboard and trackpad area) dislodged you need to detatch two or three ribbon cables as you remove it. That being said I didnt see any warranty indicators while I was in there. If you do a good job its quite likely no one would notice you were in there regardless.
1080p is plenty for the 15 inch version, 4k would be overkill in my opinion but im sure some graphics geek somewhere would disagree.
(Edit), Support has confirmed that documentation states it is m.2 sata, not pcie. I'm pretty sure thats going to be the final word on it. The 950 pro would work but would be handicapped to 1/4 the speed.
