  • Perfect entry-level gaming laptop
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Matt - April 18, 2021

    This laptop has been perfect for someone like me who is new to PC gaming and didn't want to completely break the bank. So far, ive tried many games and all of which run great, even on their highest settings. *The following stats are with an 8GB RAM upgrade, which is very easy to do on this laptop GTAV 70-100+ fps Warzone 60-70 fps Overwatch 70-100+ fps Flight Simulator (VERY demanding game) 30-45 fps This laptop is also great for school use and regular internet browsing, as well as streaming. For the price, this laptop is an amazing all-rounder.

  • Great gaming laptop
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Aiodensghost - December 26, 2020

    I've been playing Destiny 2 on this thing for several months now and it's been great for that! Running it at extremely high settings while still getting between 50-100 fps. This computer will do anything you can throw at it for the price point! The only things against it is that you need to update the BIOS right out the box and the keyboard has audible clicks after a key has been used a certain amount of time. It can also get really hot, so I recommend having Nitrosense on max when playing demanding games, and if you cant launch Nitrosense I have a solution to that on the Acer forums under my display name here

  • Best Budget laptop
    Verified BuyerReviewed by AcerNitro5 - November 6, 2020

    This laptop is known as a budget laptop, and it totally is. I can play several games, like CSGO, Dishonored, fluently. And the ssd give me the pleasure of a fast windows 10 startup. I am really satisfied with y purchase. Is lightweight, not that expensive for a gaming laptop and easy to use. Plus, if you work or play at night, the backlit keyboard will be your best friend.

  • Excellent for the price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by KJM77 - August 30, 2020

    I bought mine on sale for $619.99 and couldn't be happier. I added a 1TB Seagate Firecuda HSSD, a 1TB WD Black M2 drive, and 16GB 2933MHz Kingston HyperX RAM. The BIOS does NOT support Intel XTU and undervolting, but I can run Throttlestop in the background with a profile for the i5-8300 and my temps are 20C cooler when gaming on HIGH settings. The keyboard is red ONLY, but it feels great. The trackpad is good, but I use a wired mouse. I have one spot of screen blooming just below the camera. Its only noticeable on a solid black screen and expected from an IPS panel. This PC is also VR capable. I use my PSVR, Move controllers, and 2 PS3 cameras to play Beat Saber and other games.

  • Gaming laptop
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SqueeTheGoblin - February 27, 2021

    I haven't bought a computer or played P.C games in years. Bought this one for Christmas and does everything I need it to do I upgraded the RAM and SSD card to make it run even smother and faster which was not hard at all. Great computer for a beginner or someone just looking for casual game play. I coneccted 2 extra monitors to it and it works great. Very impressed with the quality of this P.C. for the price
