Very nice laptop4/26/2021 3:52:40 PM

Pros: fast light easily upgraded storage

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: I bought this to replace a ten year old Acer Travelmate. It is very thin and light and of course much faster than my old one. I could not set Windows up without creating a Microsoft Account first and then set up a local account. This may be an Acer issue, as I usually can set with a local account on systems I build. Just FYI as I usually use Linux. I removed the Acer NVMe drive and replaced with a WD 500GB drive for boot and added a Team Group 1TB sata ssd for data storage. You must use a Linux distribution with a recent kernel to recognize all the new hardware in this laptop. I used openSuse Tumbleweed and was able to install without issue and everything was recognized and works as far as I can tell KDE Plasma desktop is very responsive and stable. This is a great laptop in my opinion. I've been using it about a week and I would recommend it for productivity applications. I have very limited experience gaming. I will install darktable for photo processing. Audio/Video applications have worked will. It works good on Udemy classes. Acers in the past have been reliable and I expect this one will too.
