Amazing laptop!!!

Acer Laptop Aspire AMD Phenom II Quad-Core N970 (2.2GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6470M 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit AS7551G-7606
Acer Laptop Aspire AMD Phenom II Quad-Core N970 (2.2GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6470M 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit AS7551G-7606

Pros: I honestly didn't know what to expect once I opened the box because the price for a piece of hardware like this is just too good to be true! And when I opened the box, it was even better than I had expected. The keys are smooth and have textured it feels really nice to type. The trackpad works great, and truthfully I don't know what some of these other reviewers are talking about but to me the display is AMAZING!!! It's so clean and smooth and the quad-core processor really does its work. Boot up time is extremely fast and it doesn't run that hot at all unless you like to use it on your bed and just leave it on your blanket...obviously!! The volume is pretty decent considering... and I can play games like Team Fortress 2 without any problems whatsoever!!

Cons: I would've really liked dedicated volume buttons and perhaps a light for the CAPS button but I mean really it's not that necessary... You don't really need a light to tell you whether CAPS is on or not, but it wouldn't hurt neither.

Overall Review: You cannot go wrong for the price. And what made me a little angry is that a couple days after I bought it, they brought the price down even more!! It's 499 now I believe... Gee thanks a lot NEWEGG!!!

Most Critical Review

Dead On Arrival...

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: none

Cons: I was told to never go with EVGA, and I did... so there's a slap in the hand for me. Card came dead on arrival, nothing on screen. Returned it and got a refund. Got me an ATI HD 6950 instead and I'm MORE than happy with it :)

Ultra fast!!

Pros: -My goodness this thing is fast. I have 2 of these installed on my AORUS X570 Master and run like a charm. -Heatsink that comes with it is better than the one from my motherboard.

Cons: -None

Overall Review: -I highly recommend using the heatsink that comes with it. It keeps it cooler than the one from the motherboard you have. Not by that much, but hey every degree counts in my book.

Use the right drivers!

Pros: -Runs everything I have in ultrahigh without breaking a sweat... -A perfect match for my ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ 49" Super Ultra-Wide HDR Curved Gaming Monitor.

Cons: -Make sure you download the right drivers. 20.2.2 works perfectly for me.

Overall Review: At first my games were crashing, but I had an old driver installed which was clearly a mistake on my end. After installing 20.2.2, I haven't had a single issue and this thing runs like a charm!

Do I have even need to write a review?

An absolute pleasure to have...

ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ 49" Super Ultra-Wide HDR Curved Gaming Monitor - 32:9 (3840 x 1080), 144Hz, FreeSync 2, DisplayHDR 400, Eye Care with DP HDMI
ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ 49" Super Ultra-Wide HDR Curved Gaming Monitor - 32:9 (3840 x 1080), 144Hz, FreeSync 2, DisplayHDR 400, Eye Care with DP HDMI

Pros: -The quality, especially after changing refresh rate to 144hz and enabling FreeSync 2, is out of this world! -Ultrawide screen with gorgeous 4K display. -Very easy install. -Outstanding cable management for graphics card cables.

Cons: -NONE!!

Overall Review: -When installing the stand for the monitor, keep the monitor inside the box. It makes it a lot easier, and then just lift the monitor out of the box with the stand. -I wish it came with a remote control because if you want to mess around with the settings, the button is at the bottom of the monitor and you can't really see it. But this is nowhere near enough to take away an egg. You get use to it after a bit of practice. -
