Acer 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: (1) FHD, matte, IPS screen - few laptops have this combination.

(2) Extremely fast.

(3) Looks solid and conservative. Although it is a gaming computer, it would not look out of place among a bunch of Thinkpads and Dell Latitudes.

Cons: (1) The screen is too warm. I have a monitor whose color temp is known to be close to 6500k so I know the Acer's color temp is a bit too warm.

(2) You cannot replace the hard drive and battery unless you unscrew the screws and lift up the keyboard. This is a very invasive procedure and could void the warranty.

(3) The quad speakers sound muddy and awful. I don't use them anyways. I would rather prefer 2 speakers and 1 small subwoofer.

(4) Chiclet keyboard - most people hate it, but why is every company making computers with chiclet keyboards?

(5) The fan spins up quite often and is annoying when you are writing or browsing. Acer should offer a BIOS update that makes the fan quieter.

Other Thoughts: I got this for 999. Best bang for the buck.

Pros: This PSU is expensive, but you won't regret buying it! It is very reliable, cool, and completely silent.

Also, since the fan is usually inactive, very little dust is sucked into the unit, which means that it will probably work for many years.

Cons: None

MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very powerful card. Runs just about every game with highest graphic quality and 1920x1080 resolution.

Completely inaudible when doing light tasks such as Internet surfing. When gaming it makes a little noise but not annoying at all.

Cons: None.
