It's fast but it runs SO hot

Pros: Fast, smooth gaming when running.

Cons: I have had the computer for about a month now and continues to crash constantly. Especially when I run games I bought this laptop for. First the game shuts down, then the computer completely crashes. I have had some insanely hot computers but this gets scary hot to the touch hot. A major fan addition mildly helps.

Other Thoughts: After all the crashes and all the error reports sent, you think I would have a solution by now.

Runs REALLY Hot And Drops Frames! Buyer Beware!

Pros: -It can run simple games that aren't graphically intense without burning up
-Performs good for animating, graphic design or photo editing

Cons: -Drop frames on FPS games like APEX and RAGE 2 even with settings dialed back
-While you're gaming, your fingers are being fried. Seriously, don't touch anywhere above the keyboard, it'll burn you. WASD get so hot it becomes an additional challenge to move ingame. Even when sitting on an external cooling unit!
-Why map the function keys as default instead of the F keys?! If you slip and hit what should be the F1 key, you'll accidentally put the laptop to sleep mid gunfight!
-Bad key spacing between the main keyboard and keypad. I catch myself frequently hitting numlock when trying to tap backspace. Annoying.

Other Thoughts: This laptop shouldn't be labeled a gaming laptop with issues as pointed out above. I'll definitely be returning this and I doubt I'll buy another Acer product. I tend to give the underdogs a try more often than not in hopes of finding a product of great value. This one was a big mistake. How can you sell a product labeled for gaming that can't handle games even at a low-mid graphic setting and throw in pitfalls that just ruin the user's experience?

Great components for a great price, something has to give right?

Pros: This computer had awesome specs, the main reason I purchased it. GTX 1060, 8th gen I7-8750h, Full HD monitor, NVME SSD, all for about $900.

Cons: All of the above for 900.00. something had to give and it was QUALITY. the laptop was very large, but I knew that before I ordered it and I was ok with it. The laptop arrived, and after I used it a few times I noticed it was dying very quicly, i mean 90 minutes quickly. I was running with 50% monitor brightness, no backlit keys, and using microsoft excel. I said maybe this is a fluke and RMA'd it for another of the same model. The battery was great on the new model, lasted me aout 4 hours but the space bar was stuck. The case was not on tight and the space bar would continually get stuck and I would have to push down on the case incredibly hard for it to pop back up and work again.

Other Thoughts: overall great specs, but build quality is just terrible on this unit. I honestly can not recommend this computer as much as I really wanted to love it.

Laptop Is Great

Pros: Can't beat this Laptop for the Price, Had a 500 Gig Hard drive laying around, put it in no problem.

Cons: Gave this 3 star, Because of the Junk Software, that Newegg pushed, Just basic shell junk. Buy the PC, not the Junk Software they are pushing.

Great laptop for the price!

Pros: -Runs every game we play very well on high settings (Fortnite, Sea of Thieves, WoW...)
-Very fast over all
-Surprisingly thin

Cons: -It gets a little noisy when under load, fan is loud. That is to be expected though, seeing as it is a thin laptop.

Other Thoughts: GREAT bang for your buck!! This laptop has been a great purchase so far.

Won't boot after only 5 Months. A complete brick.

Pros: - nice while it worked

Cons: - only lasted 5 months

Other Thoughts: Bought Nov 2018 to be used as a VR laptop as it said it was VR capable. For the time I used it I installed several steam games to test out its power and it seemed very capable. March 2019 I hooked it up via HDMI and was just playing YouTube videos when it went into "Automatic Recovery" mode. No matter what I tried from the advanced options it would always return to the "Advanced Recovery" screen. I tried "Reset to Factory setting" and "Boot from USB" with an Ubuntu thumb drive but nothing worked.
As it is under warranty I filled out a repair request at acer.com (which BTW recognised it was under warranty). I was expecting them to send out a pre-paid packing box so I could send in the laptop but instead it says I would have to pack and ship at a cost to myself. I will have to see how much shipping will be and if too much will just write it off and switch back to getting Dell.
