Bought this and it just came in a couple of days ago. Thought I'd share my initial impressions.I am going from a lenovo Thinkpad t500 (which is still operational, now soley my work pc)Spent a lot of time observing the laptop market. I was eyeing the i5 model of this, but when I saw a deal for this one with the i7, I pulled the trigger.It fit my criteria:1080p resolution screeni78gb memorydiscrete graphicsbacklit keyboardFor my uses, it is perfect, especially at the price point I bought it at. At the price I bought it at, this thing is great.For you gamers out there. I only really play league of legends, and robocraft. It maxes out league at a constant 60 fps at 1080p resolution.Robocraft, I need to turn down the graphic settings a bit, but still runs very smooth. I've also run dota 2 at max settings and it runs very smooth.Overall, I would highly recommend this product. I will post back with an update maybe a couple months from now.
4.5 stars out of 5. This computer packs a lot of guts for the price. Looks very nice, has an aluminum (looking) shell, black keys on silver face. It does what I need it to do and nothing else has the 5th generation i7 processor at this pricepoint PLUS HD screen PLUS backlit keypad. This is my 3rd Acer in 10 years. My first Acer laptop is still running, somewhere around 9 or 10 years old. Say what you want, but I think they are solid machines for their price.This model comes with:-matte screen-HD 1080p resolution-backlit keypad (which toggles on or off)-5th generation Intel i7 5500U processor-8 GB RAM (capacity of 16 GB)-1 TB 5400rpm HDD-Dedicated graphics via NVIDIA GeForce 840M 2GB, PLUS Intel HD (each has its own settings)-6 cell, 7hr Li-ion battery-Removable, replaceable battery-Windows 8.1 (free upgrade to Windows 10 if you choose)-Dolby Home Theater sound-Two down-firing speakers located on the front-bottom, sound is less than ideal because of this orientation, but plenty loud-One 3.0 USB port and two 2.0 USB ports-Charger adapter cord-Charger jack on right side near hinge (aren't they normally on the left?)-Multi-gesture mouse/trackpad, with pinch 'n zoom and built in no-line R and L click buttons-Built-in 720p webcam-Some bloatware programs, mostly Acer branded stuff-Up/down left/right arrows on keypad also adjust your volume and screen brightness, respectively, with use of the Function ("Fn") key. This location is unique to Acer's keyboard design and I love having those controls right where I know they are instead of having to scan up at the many F keys.-MIMO wireless antenna(s), whatever that is. Supposed to increase signal and speed.Read more ›
Pros:1920 X 1080 Display5th Gen. i7 5500u Dual-Core ProcessorNvidia Geforce 840mWireless ACBack-lite keyboardCons:Hard Drive is SlowDisplay is not of high qualityBloatware/Trialware/FreewareLid has noticeable flex when closedSlight raised bulge in middle of keyboardThe overall use the laptop depends on what you are willing to do to make it uniquely your laptop. After realizing how redicously slow everything took to load I quickly decided to swap out the hard drive with a solid state drive. Upgrading the drive and memory can be tricky for someone inexperienced with taking apart a laptop, because that is what you will have to do to upgrade this device. After removing the 18 some screws on the bottom of the laptop, you then remove the top keyboard front, being careful to not damage the ribbons that have to be unattached to access the hard drive enclosure. The memory is on the backside of the motherboard, you will have to unscrew the motherboard to remove it from the frame. The process took longer than expected as I was having trouble cloning the drive so I decided to do a clean boot with Windows 8.1 Enterprise, the only version I had on hand at the time. Once some of the drivers are downloaded and installed, and slight changes have been applied to the settings the difference has been like night and day. I was having problems with display being that it is 1920 X 1080 the text appears to be small, this can be changed under display settings to change the text size to medium.
