Very pleased

I'm very pleased with BestBuy customer service. This product arrived exactly when they said it would. The laptop itself is great. I was holding out on Windows 10 for the longest time on my old laptop, but haven't had any difficulties adapting, no problems with anything. Everything on the laptop runs smoothly. The screen is crisp, and the trackpad and keyboard are very responsive. It came pre-loaded with a trial of Norton and MS Office, which gave me a little difficulty with installing my Office 365 subscription and paid antivirus, but not a big problem. Over all this is the best laptop I've owned, so far, a week out of the box.

Bad service from customer service

I wish I could leave negative stars. I ordered this item online on Sept 14th and it showed in stock at that time. I checked on sept 19th as I did not receive my order yet. I called 1-866-bestbuy and talked with 1 rep and 1 supervisor (He name is "Yuxxx") and they both told me that my order is on back order now. There are letters of "in stock" showed on my order. I asked the supervisor what "in stock" means, he told me it means "on back order". He said I'll not receive my order anytime soon till they receive more items from the factory. I'm not happy for talking with 2 unprofessional workers. Their voice and the words showed me that their job is just to pick up the phone and kick out customer. They are never care about the customer. Very bad experience to deal with Bestbuy. Not any more.

  • from Port Coquitlam, BC

Decent laptop

Loading applications, opening up stuff, etc takes a little bit of time to load, but overall the laptop is big and it can handle games well. 9.5/10 for gaming I would say. (Downloading Discord didn't work for me for some reason)

  • from Brossard, QC

Great value for money

I bought this laptop after my ASUS laptop died. I got the Acer home and within 2hrs I was up and running with everything updated and working as advertised. I bought this laptop because of the mix of screen size and Processor. I think this computer gives great value for money. I will admit the spacing between USB and other ports is tight, but manageable. Well worth the money.

  • from Tofino BC

I like it

I like it, it's very smooth, no lag on games, sharp visuals. Everything I look for in a computer.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Damn mulitlingual keyboard.

Specs are good for the price, but beware it is a multilingual keyboard even though the image shows a US keyboard. Seems to be an ubiquitous issue with the Canadian laptop market though.

  • from Pickering, ON

Performance ok, keyboard/ports not great

Have been using this laptop for about 6 weeks now. The performance is fine - connects fine to WiFi, quick response when using applications, copying files from an external hard drive to the machine took no time, installing applications was quick. I use it mostly for Word, Excel, internet browsing and connecting to work via Citrix. i don't like the keyboard - the return key is not in a great place (extra key before it which is different from a regular keyboard) and the USB ports are all close to the front of the machine which means that the wires from the USB cables get in the way of everything. It's a bad design in my opinion. I'm disappointed with it but it's too late to return it.

You get what you pay for

Acer is a so-so brand, keep this in mind. Looking for an HD laptop with icore processor and a dedicated GPU, this is what you really get for the price of an Acer. Good for general use for maybe 4-5 years to last, which is, again, so-so. What really ticks me off is the audio jack, which is located on the right side, and it's not unusual for left handed people, except you got the CD on the same side and opening it next to a wire hanging around can get pretty annoying. Another advice - remove windows 10. Just get rid of it. Runs twice faster on win 7 and with a lot less stupid promo popups for apps you don't need.

  • from Vancouver

Terrible product even worse service

Brand new computer crashed when I first started it up and had to reset. Then it skips the entire start up procedure and locks me out because "other user" has a password. Then it cannot factory because there is no reset point. All this while trying acer online chat 6 times being dis connected twice and left in the queue for over 10 mins when I'm first in line and told my wait is going to be 58 seconds. Don't bother calling customer support all you hear is "thanks for calling customer support" Then silence. No options. No voices. They don't even hang up on you just silence. Don't buy acer

  • from Vancouver, BC

Can't judge a laptop by others' review ratings!

Bought the laptop July 4th. Have to return the laptop on July 6th because the laptop has encountered an error and it was just looping the boot sequence to the same message that it has encountered an error and would ask you to select restore point which I cant select a restore point because it's newly configured laptop or repair pc or continue anyway which doesn't make sense..

  • from Barrie, ON

Does everything I need!

I use this laptop for work as a graphic & web designer. I can run multiple programs at once, plus browsers with lots of tabs open and it still runs fine. I'm liking it!

  • from Vancover

Best laptop I've seen!!!!!!!!

So good runs all my games perfectly super satisfied with it

  • from Edmonton, AB


Have had this laptop for a month and the audio jack does not recognize microphones within headsets of any sort. BestBuy refuses to do anything and it will take at least 2.5-3 weeks to get it shipped to Acer to have them take a look at it. Sure, the specs are good but I recommend buying a laptop elsewhere.

  • from Edmonton, AB


Stay away from Acer. Horrible customer service and products. Have an issue with the audiojack (and inputs not detecting microphones) and customer support was utterly useless. Apparently the best solution they have is to buy something with a USB jack. Now I have to be without a computer for 2 weeks even though I need it for school for it to be sent for repair. DO NOT BUY. SEVERELY DISAPPOINTED in both BestBuy and Acer.

  • from Spruce Grove, AB


Please do yourself a favor and NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP. This laptop has 3 USB ports, 2 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0. The USB 2.0s do not work at all! Above that, the display flickers and goes black when in use and the trackpad is rubbish. The cursor actually bounces around sometimes, I have to force shutdown by holding the power button. My 2002 Toshiba was miles better. That's saying something.

  • from Sudbury,Ontario


The mouse/trackpad area sucks, its slow and jerkey, I've only had the laptop for 20 days and its failing already, of course BestBuy will not take the machine back after 15 days, so I'm screwed and ripped off

  • from Trenton, ON


This is probably the most frustrating computer I have ever owned. It drops its WiFi connection or Internet Explorer at least 4 times per hour. Its madness. Don't buy it. Do yourself a favour and buy something, anything, else.

  • from Surrey, BC

Lots of Issues on the First Day

The casing itself looked really cheap and lacked design. I ordered this laptop online and it was prettier in the picture. Getting past it's looks, there were 3 other issues that made me return the product : 1. The system was stuck on the login page after going to sleep. After typing in my password, it will wait ~30s and then ask me to log in again. This happened 3 times and I had to restart the computer to fix it. 2. Whenever I tried to create a new folder when saving files off the web, the explorer freezes. 3. The rotating "loading" icon was made so poorly you could see the border pixels shift. Definitely not a good out-of-the-box experience.

  • from Scarborough, ON

So far, definitely 5-star

I am a developer. I purchased this laptop 2 weeks ago. This laptop is beyond my expectations. I do not even realize screen changes sometimes, when browser searching. It is that fast! Camera: even though the plastic sticker was still on it, it took great quality picture. As it says that it is Business Skype ready, one does not need to add headphone to record a video. If you are into submitting videos to Youtube, etc., Windows 10 comes with a program that can build desktop video recording - with sound of course. It spares you the hassle of having to carry and plug your audio equipment. I can have 30 window tabs open, at the same time, in my browser and skip from Dreamweaver to Photoshop and my network storage system, have a number of folders open, and yet, it can handle a heavy developer use. Screen picture is amazing as well. Compared to my desktop computer I purchased last year, which is an AMD A-10 Radeon with same 12Ghz speed and same storage space (1TB), this laptop is faster than my desktop it feels like. Must be the Intel Chip. So far so good! NOW CAREFUL! The plug is a 3-prong plug. It is due to the power of this laptop. However, if you are travelling with it to other countries, be ready to carry the appropriate converter. My old Lenovo laptop was a 2-prong and plugging it in airports or Europe was no problem, but this one will need a heavier converter.

Within two weeks it had stopped working

  • from Winnipeg, MB

So Far So Good!

Bought it on sale. Had good specs for the sale price. I use it to work on animations and movie clip editing on Blender and play games like CS:GO and Minecraft. No problems as of yet, everything works well.

  • from Peterborough, ON

Great For What I Need

And what I need is a good keyboard, a big screen, and to play Sims 4 with all the graphics cranked to high. Done, done and done effortlessly. Maybe I'm a bit biased because my previous HP laptop was half-again as expensive and yet a total piece of junk, but this thing is great and I feel it was very worth it's price. From where I am sitting now after owning it for a few weeks - A+, 10/10, would purchase again.

  • from Windsor, ON

Great deal

Everything is good. strongly recommend.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Best Value for the money

Given the specs, you really can't find a better deal when this laptop is on sale. Even without the sale, it is a great value. It has just about everything you need unless you are into modern gaming. It will play most of the older titles that are 3 years old or older pretty well, but I do recommend a cooling pad if you are playing for a while - as this is not a real gaming laptop, overheating is a threat after a couple of hours of using the graphics card at a high level. This is my family's 3rd Acer laptop, and so far so good, like the others. I know Acer is a cheaper brand, but I don't feel the quality is any lower. One Acer that is 5 years old is still going strong, but only needed to be replaced as it didn't have a dedicated graphics card. Only downside is the weight, but this is expected of a 17inch laptop. I wanted 15.4 inch, but given the price, I went with this one.

  • from Windsor, ON

Great laptop

Everything is good. strongly recommend.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great laptop for the price

I purchased this laptop for myself as a personal and some what gaming laptop, and it has not disappointed me at all. The screen is a nice size and the hardware backs up the ability to do what you want. It is big and heavy and I love it

  • from Delta, BC

Good Value

Got this laptop over the Christmas break when it was on sale for 699.99. Perfect laptop for some light gaming periodically, and just every day use/movie watching. Never been an Acer fan, but it was hard to pass up the bang for the buck. My one thing I'd have liked to see is a faster HDD. 5400 rpm is pretty archaic... atleast put a 7200 rpm HDD in there. I'll be swapping it out with an SSD once the warranty expires.

  • from Toronto, ON

Quite Happy

This is my third laptop with only Graphics of NVIDIA GeForce 940MX. I am not a gamer but I will just use this for photo & video editing. I loved the keyboard coz it has its num pad. I bought it on sale and it works fine with the 12 gb of ram and 1tb of hardrive,you will not be wrong with the price. Intel i5 core is quite good for photo & video editing. You donot need to get a higher graphics. I purchased a warranty just in case something goes wrong you never know. Nowadays,Acer is not a bad laptop it has a ventilation fan at the bottom of the laptop. It has a 5 hrs. of battery life and that's enough. The one thing I loved most of this laptop is the screen with a 17.3 inch,you can see the details of the photos. I think I will be happy with this laptop.

  • from Toronto, ON


This laptop has an amazing features for photo editing coz of its 12 ram and the 1tb had it has a 2 usb 3.0 & 2.0. With this NVIDIAGeforce graphics with a 2gb video memory,you will be amazed of the performance coz of its intel core i5.but the problem That I am not satisfied with the BestBuy customer service located on Bay & Dundas that I purchased the membership and warranty that when ready to be pick up they didnot make the USB and I have to wait 20 mins. of my time.the geek squad told me as long as I have the GSM that I will be alright but the thing is in the paper that it was included the USB recovery windows 10. I was disappointed how they have this kind of customer service from this store. I never leave the store until I make sure I will serve well.

  • from Kelowna, BC

Really Good Value

Great laptop for light-gaming and school work. I have played Heroes of the Storm and Awesomenauts on it but I haven't tried anything more intensive than that yet. It worked great, teeny bit of stuttering on rare occasion on HotS but that may have been lag. Very sturdy feeling construction. It's a bit heavy even for a laptop of that size. The appearance is attractive enough. Pros: Fantastic Value at sale price Decent Gaming Great size screen (can easily view two programs at once (ie Word + Chrome) Cons: No backlight on keyboard Heavy Power goes into right side of laptop (I prefer left side) It'll never replace my big gaming rig but I use it for travel and for exams and it is pretty slick.

  • from Toronto, ON

Recommended tested laptop

Everytime I visit BestBuy to check this brand laptop it seems good with the 12gb ram and 1tb had. I recommended thi for photos and video editing with this 17 inch monitor and you can see the detail of the photos. I will get this at BestBuy today. The trackpad is alright. I waited for awhile to go back for this price.

Acer Laptop Review

I purchased this laptop mainly for casual gaming. I found that it can run games up to the year 2015 with no issues. The newer games that recently came out within the year are not able to run unless you purchase the more higher end laptops. I tried to play a beefy game like ark survival however, requires i7 processors for a smooth, crisp, and less choppy gameplay. I have been a fan of acer products since 2010 and they are a reliable company. I have had no issues with my current and previous acer laptops so far. I have no complaints of the price for 12GB ram, i5 7th gen and nvidia graphics with 2GB dedicated memory on a relatively large screen. Steller deal. High recommended

Great laptop

I love the build quality of this laptop, its much better than the HP i bought on Black Friday(had to return it). The ease of upgrade is really thoughtful. Ram upgrade and hard drive upgrade can be done with simple removal of back cover with just 3 screws!!! The keyboard layout make you wonder what was Acer thinking? The power button is on top right corner, right next to End button. It doesn't have Num Lock and Caps Lock indicating light. Its fast, reliable, but it's not perfect.

  • from Vancouver, BC

I got it on the deal, 2 benjamins off

When it was (is) on sale, it's well worth the price. Basically an entry-level gaming laptop, but it can easily moonlight as a video/audio powerhouse cause of it. Great guts when on special; try to find a dedicated vid card on a laptop under 7 hunnies... Exactly.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great rig for the price

This laptop is a great balance between performance and price, just what I was looking for. A little heavy, but certainly has enough kick to play most games on decent settings.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Excellent Performance

The laptop works great, the resources drivers are excellent

  • from Saint John, NB

Great Machine

I love it. The screen is huge on this baby. Not sure if it would be a gamer's dream, but for me it's perfect. Fast and the graphics are very good. Lots of drive space and memory. Haven't done any video rendering yet, but that is only about 1% of the use for this laptop. Last one worked ok, and this ones specs are much better so it should work fine when I do need it. For a 17 inch screen, the price was excellent. most 17's are two to five hundred dollars more! Staff in store was great. Only problem was the virus scanner that they installed. Had to remove it and replace it. Just about every thing I tried to download and install was being detected as a virus and deleted. Online shopping was a nightmare, It would not allow me to input payment method and submit. Tried to go through the settings, but no luck. Replaced it with another one I liked and no more issues.

  • from Montreal

Can't start after several months usage

This computer is truly a failure, when you plug out the cable it freezes and can't open any programs, you have to plug in the cable and stop using it on battery to make it work. And now, it even can't start this morning! There's nothing wrong I did to it and after I flip down the screen I went to bed. This morning I just found it cant start any more! Tried to figure out why, but still got no clue. Have had so many computers in my life and this is the first and will be the last time I buy Acer.

  • from Truro, NS

Acer Laptop

I purchased this laptop for my son for Christmas, therefor I can not review it's performance until he receives it, I will gladly review it in January. Now however, I can do a review for Best Buy. I was very satisfied with their site, their notification of sales by way of e-mail and their very fast delivery of the laptop !!!! THANK YOU

  • from London, ON

Sleek and Stylish......however

I found this machine to be sleek and very stylish....however I was not overly impressed with the speed. I have a 14" 4 GB DDR3 Memory with a 640GB HDD that was twice as fast as the 17" Acer. I was not impressed for the money.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Great deal!
