Pros: HD screen, 7 gen i 5. SSD drive. 8 gb ram. Sounds good right?
Cons: Cheap components. My first had wifi issues that I had to solve going outside ACER tech. Second has been sent in for replacement for a dead screen. ( Yes the laptop works when connected with an external monitor) If this company wants to rise above the rep for hi spec, cheap component option, it needs to step up it's game.
Overall Review: I am very experienced with computer tech. I can't recommend ACER except as a budget brand with a decent CPU but low quality peripheral components that make it's reliability and daily use an issue. Better than the HP "G" series but mediocre at best.
Pros: Nice screen, KB and touch pad
Cons: I have an i3 5th gen. Side by side this 7th gen is slower. Downloads are hours long. Bootup is slow. I know what CPU it has yet is performs like a Celeron. Unbearable. All drivers are up to date and I compared it side by side with other similar laptops. This thing SUCKS! No wonder they have so many "refurbished". I am quite sure people returned them for lack of performance. I would guess it is a design flaw in the subsystems. It's not the CPU or Win 10.
Overall Review: Avoid like the plague!
