  • Lighting fast machine!
    Reviewed by JB82 - January 13, 2021

    We purchased this laptop for our business. This is the third Acer laptop I have owned. I have not been disappointed with Acer products thus far. The Core i7 processor is lighting fast. I typically have multiple programs open (Quickbooks, Adobe Illustrator, music streaming) and it is still very responsive to the tasks requested of it. The fan runs occasionally - it’s slightly louder than my previous laptop, but it’s not a deal breaker. The display quality is good. The screen is matte with no glare - which is awesome! I am pleased with the performance of this laptop thus far. Hopefully it lasts as long as the previous Acer’s I’ve had in the past. It’s a great laptop for the price!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Acer FAN NOISE solution
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - April 25, 2021

    I am a Mechanical Engineering student and, after 1 year of using this. I will break down my review. This Compter is great for handling intensive ram-seeking programs like Auto-Cad, Solidworks, and multitasking between many tabs!! To fix the LOUD Fan Noise.... there is a solution that worked for me! There are a few steps that made a significant noise reduction, to absolute minimal noise after doing this. In the Search box beside the windows logo type in "Choose a Power Plan", You should be selected to the "Balanced (recommended)" plan then Click "Change plan settings" beside the "Balanced" A window will pop-up and now Click "Change Advanced Power Settings" A New window will pop-up. Now scroll down to "Processor Power Management" Type in %5 for Minimum processor state (both "On battery" and "plugged in") & %65 for maximum processor state (both "On battery" and "plugged in"). Do not worry these changes are absolutely reversible!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Super Fast with lots of power.
    Reviewed by Bobmaz - November 5, 2020

    I purchased this computer to replace an old laptop that just got super slow. It was loaded with Windows 10 Home and easy to set-up. Its slim good looks and light weight make it easy to pack around when I travel. Graphics are good and it has a back lit keyboard, however it is missing a card reader which is nice to have to download those pictures you take while on vacation.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • noisy
    Reviewed by Bill - March 7, 2021

    Overall it does the job for the basic tasks that I purchased it for. I find the unit noisy and the battery life poor. The battery only lasts for about 3.5 hours which is far less than I would like.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Great laptop
    Reviewed by arm - January 12, 2021

    Much better than my previous laptops. Haven't discovered anything wrong yet after two weeks of usage. The structure is the only issue where the keyboard edge is far from the laptop edge making it harder to type, but given I connect it to the additional screen and works with the keyboard, this turns to be a non-issue for me.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
