5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: -Quad core A10 with the 2 cards runs really smooth
-6gb Ram for extra oomph
-750gb HDD had plenty of space for my music and games.
Very solid computer.

Cons: Honestly not much, but my cooling system did finally get me after years of gaming and streaming.

Other Thoughts: This was an amazing computer. I bought it in 2013 and it was about $500. I did everything with this computer and i never, i repeat, never had a problem with it. I have thousands of songs on it, it handles all web browsing excellent, youtube at 720p60fps, everything. It handled all my games fairly well. It plays most games at medium or low settings.

Cod4 with everything down ran average of 90fps+ with the dips to 20fps when airstrikes hit you.
Handles CSGO pretty well, avrg fps at about 80 with all settings down.
Skyrim, Bioshock 2, Borderlands, Crysis, Mafia 2, The Witcher 2 were all playable at low settings.
These games were all extremely playable but they were not too too demanding. On the upper side of demanding games is Metro Last Light, it does not run. I have all settings down, 800 x 600 resolution and you get like 15fps max.

Other than that this laptop held up for its moneys worth and it is easily one of the best purchases i have ever made. I am EXTREMELY satisfied with Acer and with Newegg for providing awesome service and a great laptop.

After almost 3 years of abuse, and many times of overheating from hours of gamimg the cooling system is finally done. The fans and everything still work fine tho. I just bought a new Asus from newegg and expecting it soon, so it is time to say farewell to my acer which did so much for me. Thank you Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for the price!

Pros: Great gaming computer that I purchased in 2013. I still use it, and will probably hand it down to my son this year. Handles games fine, can't handle max settings generally, but it does quite well. If you game with a laptop, get a gaming cooling fan people! Of course it gets hot. But with a gaming cooling fan no matter the settings it always stays cool.

Cons: No SSD! I still don't have one, no clue why I haven't upgraded. The HDD is the bottle neck of the system.

Other Thoughts: For $550 (list was $700), this was a steal. Want better, pay twice as much. I may look at an Acer for the next laptop. This thing still has years of life left in it.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Seller and Warranty

Pros: Great memory

Cons: After less than 2 years of owning this computer I had to send it back because it was overheating. They called me 2 weeks later and said they were sending it back and wouldn't open it because it had a "scratch on the top". I took pictures of the computer before sending it and besides a small surface scratch there was nothing. Since it came back it has only been getting worse. The plastic pieces were coming off, it was still overheating and now it won't even turn on. Do not buy this computer from this company! You will only be disappointed especially when it breaks in a year and they won't even look at it.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective PC

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The keyboard has keys that stick up and when you press them it sounds like they're cracking underneath. After about 6 months I had problems typing. For example, instead of typing out
"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
It will type "Thequ ick brownf ox jumps overt helazy dog" and sometimes the whole screen will freeze and then try to type out the last 30 seconds of what I typed. Like instead of typing "Hello good friend how are you." It would type "HELLOGOODF riend howareyou." This is such a nuissance because I am a writer. I will never buy another Acer product again.

Other Thoughts: I write. I write all day long. I use a mechanical keyboard on my desktop but when I'm not at home I have to use this thing. After staying stuck on the 2nd paragraph for about 15 minutes, I eventually got so mad that I punched the computer and broke it which is fine because I bought one from a different company today. And the hard drive is still working so I just transferred everything via a HDD enclosure.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent low cost gaming laptop

Pros: Plays most games on Med-some High settings. Needs a SSD to really shine. Upgrades to ram and disk are very easy by removing the access panel on the bottom. Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 play well. Struggles a bit with Company of Heroes 2 but that game is very demanding. This laptop accepts the latest AMD drivers unlike some laptops that only support OEM modified drivers.

Cons: Original HDD was slow 5400 rpm drive. Replaced with Samsung 840 SSD and performance improved significantly. Can't keep up with games that have high CPU requirements. No way to tell if dual GPU is being utilized but AMD says it can be set to run on both GPUs even if the game/app does not specifically support AMD's APU/GPU combo cards.

Other Thoughts: After 16 months of use it's been moved to a supporting role for guest gamers but it served it's purpose well for over a year.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked is nothing but problems.

Pros: I can update my Facebook status sometimes....?

Cons: The keyboard and more importantly the venting/cooling is way too lackluster to be considered a gaming laptop.

My computer has been sitting on a cooler since day one and it can still run into some serious issues with getting too hot. This problem is only compounded by the fact that the graphics card sits right under where your left hand will rest when playing a game that uses the WASD keys. By design you get way more heat build-up playing FPS/TPS games than any other kids because of this bad design. Running a turn-based strategy game, even a large scale one that can push the limits of the graphics card, produces less heat than a FPS/TPS running on medium-low graphics. That is just bad design.

The end result has been that the keys on the left hand side of the keyboard are starting to short out. It has become unpredictable as to which keys on the left side will actually work.

Other Thoughts: Acer shouldn't advertise this as a gaming laptop if they don't actually intend for people to play video games on it regularly. This laptop was obviously under-built for the purpose of gaming and as a result it is melting down after just six and a half months.

4 out of 5 eggsPros/cons

Pros: This is the first laptop I've owned. The full number keypad is nice.
The performance of the machine is also very good, and can do anything I need it to much faster than my outdated desktop.

Cons: The system crashed unexpectedly quite often, I am not sure if this is an issue with the computer itself, or with Windows 8. Either way, it is really annoying. Windows 8 was made for a touchscreen device, and is inconvenient on this laptop without a touchscreen.
The glossy surfaces of the laptop get blemished very quickly, if you want to keep this laptop looking clean, you best only pick it up with a microfiber cloth. Other than these things, This computer does everything it says it should and was a good buy for a college student like me.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks wonderfully

Pros: It is fast to boot, runs exactly as it is supposed to. It is a great laptop for the price I paid.

Cons: Has windows 8 on it(but simple fix with start8), and if you have to do a reset and your backup is corrupted. You have to contact Acer to get factory reset disks, since there was no hidden partition on the HDD.

Other Thoughts: Overall excellent laptop for the price I paid. A 5 egg laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsSome More Technical Info

Pros: The APU is user-serviceable (can be taken out and replaced).

The charger port can take some abuse (had a few incidents where people tripped over the cord).

Cons: The thermal paste was applied excessively on the APU and dGPU on my laptop. Your experience may vary.

The keyboard has ghosting with certain keys (noticeable with the Arrow keys).

Accessing the processor requires complete laptop disassemble.

UEFI installation of Windows 7 isn't possible (locks up on boot animation).

No keyboard status LEDs (Caps, Num, and Scroll Lock).

During high CPU load, the touchpad can become erratic (not work) randomly.

Touchpad physical click buttons can have difficulty registering clicks when pressed on the outter-edge.

Other Thoughts: The included Windows 8 key is for Core (not Professional).

After a bit of cleanup of the old thermal paste and a re-apply of a small amount of Arctic Silver 5, temps were a good deal better. Don't feel you "have" to do this though, as temperatures under normal use are fine.

The CPU socket is FS1.

Under Linux (at least with Ubuntu), Bluetooth will always be enabled on boot (if you turn it off and reboot, it'll be enabled again).

When disassembling, the top half comes off first (black touchpad area, then Keyboard), then you remove 2-3 screws to remove the motherboard.

The 7660G iGPU is ARUBA, and the 7670M dGPU is TURKS. The 7670M is a 6xxx rebrand.

The dual graphics setup is muxless (no hardware mux). The iGPU (7660G) is the primary adapter, and is the one driving the display. The dGPU (7670M) is dedicated to rendering.

There is no driver for the dGPU (7670M) under Windows XP x64.

The keyboard is Chicony. Can be replaced if needed.

USB 2.0 ports are on their own board and connected to the motherboard via ribbon cable. The USB 3.0 port is on the motherboard.

Do not enable Pci Lock from msconfig/set usefirmwarepcisettings to yes on Windows-based OSes, as this will cause both GPUs to malfunction driver-wise (Windows won't load the drivers).

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING

Pros: The laptop can handle a lot at once, but not everything. I record videos for youtube using bandicam, I play minecraft, soldier front 2, terraria, technic pack, and other games and with medium settings it goes about 80+ fps on all except soldier front 2, it goes on about 40+ on normal or slightly below graphics, while recording. I can be saving a movie (movie maker XD) playing a (less power intensive) game (minecraft, terraria), while using iTunes, and uploading a video all at once no problems. The games I play are:
minecraft (100+ fps)

soldier front 2 (constant 40-50, recording 30-40 on normal graphics)

terraria (on high while not recording 80+, while recording on medium i get 80+)

technic pack(40+ high graphics, 80+ high)

slender (lower graphics and windowed even while recording I get 40+)

Scp containment breach (80+)
one button bob (OVER 9000 XD)

tactical invention (needed serious downplay on graphics and resolution, get anywhere from 30-100+ fps)

Blacklight retribution (lower graphics 50+)

Team fortress 2 (higher graphics 70+)

shotgun fun fun 2 (OVER 9000)

facade (OVER 9000)

Sumotori (4-8 lights on fullscreen 70+)

Little inferno (100+, recommended not to record, it is possible, but you only get 20 fps)

Minicraft (OVER 9000)

Scribblenauts unlimited (70+)

The sims 3 (medium graphics at around 50-100, havent tested it much)

Realm of the mad Go* (recording 30+, not recording OVER 9000)

Combat arms (defaulted about 60+)

Tribes ascend (60+)

Planetside 2 (downgraded graphics a buttload 40+ stable)

Toribash (high graphics 80+)

TAG (100+)

mari0 (downgraded a little at 40+)

Enviro bear (OVER 9000)

A game where a guy flies by crapping everywhere (forgot the name, I changed it XD. pewdiepie played it, OVER 9000 FPS)

corperate property (40+)

Super crate box (OVER 9000)

iSketch (OVER 9000)

Fast typer 2 (OVER 9000)

that just shows how amazing this laptop is, and plus I use
gimp 2.8, iTunes, Mozilla, Bandicam, steam, DS3 tool,

Ive got like 30 finished (10 min+) videos at 720p-1080p movie maker videos,

Ive got like 50+ bandicam videos

Ive got 30 thumbnails and 6 channel arts using gimp

10 music from with 10 notepads for copy and pasting the copyright into youtube description (as it says to do)

back to pros, this laptop has 2 graphics cards, which r ok, but there is a way to configure single graphics card and select which one u want to use, I love that

it has 3 usb ports i just realized, 1 on the left, 2 on the right. I thought it was just 2 on the ri

Cons: The keyboard is a little iffy, but gets the job done just fine with occasional mishits while gaming, meaning that you can press say shift and it wont recognize it and you will drop to your death in most games. Eventually it sets in and itll work better. I connected a dell keyboard, and a logitech mouse. The touch pad is ok, Its silent, but is a bit cheap. I also connected a logitech mic, the laptop mic sucks, as well as the webcam, but they both would get the job done for facecaming or skype or whatever. This thing is also a sweat and fingerprint magnet. My left hand goes on WASD a lot and my palm gets sweaty from the overheating on the left side, when the sweat drys you see salt from the sweat to the left of the trackpad. This can be cleaned with a slightly damp wipe. This thing does get hot but not to an extreme. The speakers also suck, I use mun2 speakers, but any form of speakers will do just fine. All of the cons can be fixed quite easily

get speakers

maybe MAYBE a faster harddrive, Ive proven its not really needed

a keyboard and mouse

a mic


cooling pad

Like i said these things can all be easily fixed. Dont let these be deal breakers, I got it for $500 on sale for back to school. on sale its a steal, but even for $700 its a steal.

Other Thoughts: Im using this as a desktop replacement, and its amazing!!!
I recommend this to any normal- above normal gamers.

My gaming channel is BarriLogy on youtube. I hope this helped!
