Slow and not upgradable

I was so disappointed with the speed of this computer. I thought I was upgrading from a surface pro 3, but that machine was faster! The Acer website specs said this was upgradable to 16GB Ram so I ordered the correct 8GB ram and took it to a shop where they said not possible to upgrade. Called ACER customer service, who said I needed a 16GB Ram to upgrade. I said the shop said it was not upgradable, so please find me a manual or picture. 1 hour later they said sorry not upgradable. Very disappointed with service from ACER. I just want a refund but it is too late.

Love it

I bought this PC at the recommendation of 2 Best Buy employees and after a lot of research. I was returning my original purchase, an Asus Vivobook, because it made a constant noise. I bought this model in part because of the dedicated graphics card (I'm a moderate gamer but refuse to have a desktop). So far I love it. It is my first SSD and it makes a huge difference. Everything loads so quickly! The screen is very nice and so is the backlit keyboard. The PC gets pretty hot when gaming but performance doesn't suffer. So far it's worth the extra cost. I did remove a lot of the bloatware that came pre-installed.

Nice idea

A nice idea, this Acer product - I've owned an Acer laptop for the last 6 years and it's served me well but this one didn't quite meet up to expectations. Firstly, while the all metal body is nice, the build quality was lacking. I noticed the case coming apart at the seam on the front right, big enough to slide my fingernail in. It was very sharp on the front corner as well. Secondly, I don't think the cooling in this is good enough - seems to limit the MX150 at 70c. The glossy washed out screen is also a big turn-off, it's not all that bright and the lack of brightness combined with the glossiness of the display was not great.

A Powerful Work/Play Station

The i5 on this machine performs better than the previous gen i7. Keyboard is well backlit and a fingerprint sensor is also included, although not very good. The mx150 dedicated gpu is very good for medium gaming, 1080p video editing, and 3D designing. The screen is an IPS panel, and although the screen looks great in low light conditions, it tends to become hard to see in more brighter locations due to the glossy panel. One of my concerns is that this laptop tends to heat up a little higher than average when performing light tasks such as web browsing and watching videos. The chic-let style keyboard and trackpad are above average. The strongest suit of this laptop is the mx150, since it is still a fairly new budget gpu with nvidia's pascal design. Overall, I would recommend this to people who want a fairly thin and light 15.6 inch laptop while still having the specs to compete with those thicker ones.

Good laptop, Terrible Keyboard.

The billingual keyboard (not shown in pictures) features a 1/3 size left shift key. You know, the key everyone uses at the start of sentences ect... its a very important key. Having the shift key so small for the french accent button makes typing on this laptop almost impossible for me. It's not something you get use to if you use a normal keyboard for your pc or at work.

Good Price While on Sale, Decent Laptop

The laptop is a thin, kinda heavy powerful computer. The i5 core and the nvidia gpu is amazing. No other company makes products like this. It is extremely fast. The bad part about this laptop is the very very reflective screen and the fingerprint scanner is also very bad.

I would rate 5 star but...

There is no permanent way to keep the backlit keyboard on forever. This bugs me a lot as it goes off every 30 seconds of inactivity. But other than that it performs very well, hangs once in a while to.

Sweet Laptop with a small issue

I got this laptop on boxing day sale at 799 so worth it . The mx150 card is great for some older games that i want it for . the 1tb is a nice size and 22 sec boot up on the ssd harddrive is pretty sweet . the only downside and this is with all laptop and its the speaker on it . but im using 2.1 sound system to make up for it . they work but not the best ones out there . Only wifi for internet uses only but its working out great for me and my gaming and web uses .
