Good, but has some bad limits... 8/17/2019 6:38:46 PM

Pros: -CPU IPC is decent (right below Haswell) with 4 cores, 8 threads...
-CPU can boost to 3.8ghz at times (but takes 1.35 volts, OOF) usually stays around 3ghz
-system temps seem ok (CPU stabilizes around 75c for me)
-not bulky with decent I/O
-screen looks decent for 1080p
-battery life is ok (10 hours) if browsing
-Full Keyboard
-speakers can be loud
-not that fragile?

Cons: -mouse pad isn't great and flexes frame
-CAN NOT allocate more than 1gig of Vram to GPU
-GPU has some power, but struggles
-Hard drive is really an SSD m.2 with no other spot to install another SSD
-came installed with one stick of ram (in single channel) that was not rated (2666mhz)...not cool
-battery life playing Quake 3 was 2 hours (but it held the performance till 10%)
-Keyboard is mushy
-Bloatware and pre-installed windows OS was jank
-Speakers can clip
-finger magnet

Overall Review: Ditched the SSD/M.2 for an Intel 760p. Threw away the RAM and installed 16 gigs at 2400hz, but kinda sad that I could not allocate any more to the GPU. Got it on sale for 489 bux (it's been on sale before). Tried the pre-installed OS before swapping M.2s and it choked the system pretty hard. I did not need to redo the thermal paste (yet). This totally competes with team Blue if comparing to something with Intel Integrated graphics. otherwise, this won't do Unreal engine 3 at low settings above 40 fps.....because it's Vram starved...

Dead in less than two months 7/19/2019 6:51:31 PM

Pros: For the brief time it was operational, it fit most of my needs while traveling, for a decent price. Mostly used for light gaming, email, youtube etc...

Cons: After two months, with no substantial use or unusual program installations, it began booting slowly. (I mean hours). Tried installing recent Windows 10 updates. Ran Malwarebytes. Now a few days later it won't boot at all. I can hear it, but never reach even the Acer logo. Can't even access bios. This will be my first and last Acer product.

Overall Review: I bought this laptop to replace an old laptop I had been using for a couple of years now. I went back and forth about going for a nice laptop and just getting a budget computer as it is not my main computer. My old machine finally started to give out over the last month. I didn't want to spend a bunch right now on a machine, so I focused on getting the fastest computer I could get for under $500. I have several other computers in the house, so it didn't need to be the fastest. I currently own one other Ryzen 7 machine that is my main computer for gaming and digital darkroom type stuff. I was looking for at least a decent performing laptop so that it will last a while. I found that in this Acer computer. I wanted to try the Ryzen 7 in a laptop to see if it is as good as the desktop version. I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all. In fact, I would say the performance exceeded my expectations for this system. I definitely did not feel like a budget laptop by any stretch of the imagination. It seems to run as if there. The keyboard and touchpad work well, however, it doesn't feel like a high-end keyboard. It does what it needs to do even though it would have been nice to have a backlit keyboard. It boots very fast and feels very quick when multitasking. I really can't recommend this computer enough. The price versus performance, especially when found on sale is virtually impossible to match. I'm not a fan of Acer brand laptops, but this one I would have to say has redeemed my opinion of the company. If I can get a good 3-4 years out of it, that would work for me. I did order more ram along with it and installed that before I even ran it for the first time. I would imagine that it will be just as fast without the additional ram, but I wanted to add some ram to get configure it the way I wanted it. I think the standard 8 GB of ram would work fine.

Some advertised specs not present in delivered product. 6/18/2019 11:40:27 AM

Pros: - Fast processor
- Decent I/O

Cons: - This laptop does NOT come with a 2.5" ssd, despite what is shown in the pictures on the product page. Instead, if comes with a SATA M.2 drive that is hidden underneath the backplate. Where the 2.5" ssd would normally sit though is nothing, no SATA connector to connect your own ssd.
- Display colors feel washed out, not as vibrant as I am used to. AMD Settings show that the display has 6-bit color.

Love it! 6/12/2019 8:57:55 AM

Pros: fast, responsive, internet speed is fast. light weight. larger screen than i thought.

Cons: none yet.

Overall Review: i'd purchase it again and would recommend to others. this replaced my 15 year old windows 7 laptop that i was using for software development courses and was struggling. i, like others, didn't want to go windows 10, but i'm pleasantly surprised with this laptop and windows 10.
