Pros: Fairly quiet, not very high power draw to compared alot of cards I am using a 500w Silverstone Strider series PSU to power 1 on my PC. I am playing Assassin's Creed: Black Flag at the moment maxed out at 1080p, it plays fantastically and the game looks great.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this from a Radeon HD 6950. For GTAV and MGSV upcoming mostly. Feels good to be back on team GeForce.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very easy to setup
Perfect router for watching streaming HD video if you have the internet service to justify it
I am in my basement, router on 2nd floor, = 5 bars.
Other Thoughts: My parents were trying to watch HD streams with the WRT-54g
Nokia phones have nothing on that thing
Pros: Acer seems to have struck a golden balance between portability, performance and price with this laptop.
Give or take, I haven't owned a laptop for personal use since 2010, when my toaster of a machine (known as the Dell M1530) finally died after a miserable 2 year run consisting of several part replacements and overheating issues.
This modest offering from Acer is luckily nothing like that. This notebook is a very "no thrills" budget machine that offers just about everything you would expect in a modern laptop.
Probably the most impressive feature of this light, stylish laptop is it's dedicated graphics card, the Nvidia GT840M. I just played a game of Dota 2 and it runs fantastically. I have it set to roughly "medium" settings 1366 x 768. Laptop got a little warm where the onboard card is probably seated but not hot by any means.
Cons: -No CD/DVD drive
-Screen is not great viewed at an angle
