Acer 17.3

Pros: Very nice specs on paper. I am upgrading from an i5 model of the same laptop.

Cons: Unfortunately - the laptop is DOA. The screen was not only slightly open on one side, seems to not close properly, it also had tape left from the manufacturing process stuck in between the LCD display and the plastic molding around it. It was as if someone grabbed this laptop from the reject pile in the manufacturing facility.

I am sure that this is a great laptop model. However, I work as an IT manager for a production facility and I have very little patience when it comes to poor quality controls on such a blatant level.

The laptop doesn't turn on and it wasn't finished being put together. It makes me wonder if a stressed out production manager was sneaking in models from the QC failure bin just to meet his/her quota.

I am opening an RMA with NewEgg. Hopefully, the replacement will work.

Other Thoughts: For those pointing out issues with not being able to get into the BIOS or being unable to install an operating system - I highly suggest you read up on UFEI. You cannot get into the BIOS, because there is no more BIOS to get into anymore. It also requires the operating system boot loader to be properly signed with a certificate. There are several Linux distributions that are properly signed and give you instructions on how to install it correctly.
