  • Incredible laptop for anything!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Madisen1 - September 11, 2020

    I was previously using an asus laptop that was fairly good for just surfing the web. However I wanted something stronger and more powerful, as well as faster for gaming! I didn’t want to buy a whole gaming set up yet, and I mostly play Overwatch, and LET ME TELL YOU - this computer is PHENOMENAL and I highly suggest it for anyone! Even for gamers with full set ups that want something more moveable for casual travel gaming! I play Overwatch on the highest graphics settings, and I get a strong 160 FPS! It’s an incredible laptop! Opening up a page in google takes about .3 seconds! And the startup speed is only about 5 seconds for this computer!

  • Great buy
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kenneth - February 16, 2021

    I’m actually amazed at how great this laptop is for gaming. Graphics are high quality and there’s no lag. Bought this for my 14 year old son as a starter for his gaming and it’s perfect. The only thing we had to do was buy more memory but that was easy to hook up (you just plug it in) and not expensive. He would like to hook up a separate monitor so the screen is bigger. But that’s his personal preference, not an issue with the laptop. He was able to download several popular games (Minecraft, Rocket League, Among Us, Fortnite, etc.) and create a mod server for one of them and runs all that with no problem. Definitely recommend.

  • Bang for buck...When it actually works
    Reviewed by Shade - September 21, 2020

    I bought this laptop because the specs compared to the other laptops around that price range where significantly better! After about 24 hours of use speaker drivers went out and when I installed and uninstalled them, they only worked when I didn’t have any audio drivers Installed, Day 2, the computer refuses to turn on and after going to acer support, I felt like I was being treated like an idiot essentially saying have you tried to turn the device and back on again?! After waiting for a week to get my hands on this I was severely disappointed, I instead sadly parted ways with this laptop as I didn’t want to take a risk with it.
