    starsSuperb value; awesome fit and finish; surprised by its thermal performance

    DF

    This is an impressive laptop that’s worth your consideration and represents a good value for a few reasons.
    This is the nicest ‘feeling’ Acer product I’ve reviewed, though I’ve reviewed two other Acer computers and an Acer monitor. This seems like a premium product. The external branding is a more muted than on a lot of ‘gaming’ laptops and this model will not look gaudy in a classroom or office environment. That’s not the case for many competitors, which look obnoxious. The red screen bezel is a muted red, more like an accent, and the only really distinction will be that sweet backlit keyboard. While you can tell this is a gaming laptop at first sight, it still looks professional.

    Cortana runs windows setup now right out of the box, and it’s a quick and painless process if you know your Microsoft password. It’s a fun experience to unwrap and turn this laptop on and I can see someone really being engrossed over this by a Christmas tree with unwrapped gifts nearby. Not thirty minutes after I got this, and I’ve got Office installed to type this review, and Steam is downloading GTA V for testing its real performance.

    The laptop has a high performance SSD hard drive, with no moving parts, leading to a perception of a very fast system because Windows and your programs will load very quickly, however, there’s only 211 gb free on the hard drive. That’s not a problem if you just delete games you aren’t using, and adding another hard drive is possible. Bear in mind that there’s no Blu-ray or DVD drive on this laptop, which is a good thing… I’d rather have the extra space (where you can install an additional hard drive). This laptop has no moving parts aside from the keys on the keyboard, making the thing feel rock solid yet light for its size. The angular body is the most comfortable laptop I’ve typed on because my wrists and the angles just seem to match comfortably as I type. The keyboard isn’t the mechanical joy of an old Thinkpad, but it’s easy to type on with the clearly lit keys, and it’s quiet to type on. As I write this review, I’m typing quickly and easily. The touchpad is quite large and I really its subtle red frame, marking its place even in a dark room. I really like the way this thing feels and looks.

    I found wifi performance is excellent, particularly with a modern beam forming router. I used this laptop in a building where most wifi devices run into a lot of interference with the old steel construction, but this laptop kept working quite well. I recognize this is hardware overkill for office tasks, however even though I’ve got a few other laptops, this is the one I would take to a meeting or to type a paper. The screen is gorgeous! The audio is great for a laptop and I enjoy games and movies, but at home I’ll still pair with my Bluetooth soundbar for better bass.

    So let’s sum up things so far: the laptop is very nice to look at, with good sound, a great screen, good keyboard, great mouse, and it’s comfortable. It’s easy to set up and will be the gift of the year on Christmas for a lot of people.
    The remaining matter is the raw performance. Is this thing really going to play those games well?

    Well, my first impression was that this laptop was a poser. Half the vents on the laptop are fake, etched in plastic, like a fake air intake on a cheap sporty car. There are two fundamental ways to cool a gaming laptop. Either you run two heat paths, metal and fans and vents, one for the GPU and one for the CPU, or you run a single one. This laptop looks like it’s the superior dual path version, and I believe Acer designed this case with the possibility of using that solution at a higher price point, but looking at the internals and the vents, it’s clear there is a single path sharing the CPU and GPU’s heat. That means heat will spike and it will accumulate faster. I’ll get back to this in a moment.

    The specs on this laptop are very similar to my desktop machine I built a couple of years ago. My desktop has a quad core i5 processor, slightly faster, and it has a GTX950, the equivalent last generation version of this GTX1050. (GPU numbers can be confusing, but the 9 or 10 in these numbers is the edition, think ‘year of a car’s make’ and the 50 is the model, think ‘Honda Civic’). This laptop has 4 gb of video memory to my desktop’s two, and 4 gb is great, but otherwise the two systems are very evenly matched for performance.

    On paper, the specs of this laptop are great for playing games. My desktop with very similar specs plays GTA V, Skyrim SE, Echo, and many other modern games with graphics settings set very high, and it does so reliably. This laptop has a slightly more modern GPU, but that generous 4gb should mean excellent performance, actually in the realm of VR games.

    My expectation was that the cooling system would be overwhelmed quickly, and the laptop would either need to be set to ‘medium’ settings on games, or I would see a lot of framerate problems, and my desktop, with its equivalent specs but drastically better cooling, would outshine the laptop. So to test this I ran the Unreal “Heaven 4.0” benchmark on its most extreme settings on both this laptop and my desktop, in the same room.

    Again I was really impressed with the screen on the laptop as I ran the benchmark. It just looks great. The laptop noticed the tough test quickly and the fans kicked in, making the laptop sound like a PS4 running hot. It topped off at about 67 degrees C (Which is about as hot as you’d want a chip to get to preserve its reliability), and my desktop topped off at about the same point. The systems had both reached their thermal limit and would not push harder, instead dropping performance, which is exactly how they are designed.

    My expectations of the laptop being crushed by my desktop’s performance were quickly proven wrong. The laptop was doing slightly better than the desktop, and continued to do so for most of the 26 benchmark tests. At one point, the toughest test, its framerate dropped to 9 frames per second, but on average it did a little better than the desktop. I’ve attached a screenshot of the benchmark comparison.

    So, the bottom line is that the cooling solution isn’t the best design, but it is adequate for the GTX1050ti, which is a smaller, more efficient GPU design. Based on how fast those fans kicked in, I think if you use this laptop for gaming you should keep it clean and use a cooling pad, but its performance was rock solid, and that was a complete surprise to me after tearing down gaming laptops for reflows, to repair heat damage, and assembling dozens of gaming computers, which has been a hobby of mine for over 20 years. The single heat path in a gaming laptop really isn’t the best but it’s working in this laptop, and that decision absolutely made it possible to sell this laptop at such a competitive price.

    I played two of my favorites, Typing of the Dead, and Grand Theft Auto V (on medium to high settings) and after several hours have concluded this is a wonderful experience. I’m very tempted to get a VR headset to use with this laptop, which means I have a much stronger impression of its ability to take abuse than I did before I tested it. But if you research the 1050ti for VR you will learn it’s really the bare minimum for VR. Just keep that in mind.

    I conclusion, I love using this for non-gaming tasks, like typing, it looks and feels great, and the performance is impressive. There are compromises, and I think they are well justified by the price. This is a great buy if you don’t need the absolute top of the line.

    Quick Update: After reading the other reviews I decided to grab a spare laptop hard drive and try to install it. I saw that there was a bag of extra screws in the box labelled “HDD Upgrade Screws.” I removed one long screw from the base revealing a pouch style suspension for an extra hard drive, and a typical SATA cable. I unscrewed that, plugged in the hard drive, and put all the screws back. The hard drive worked just fine in Windows. So it appears these laptops do ship with everything you need to add a second hard drive.

    the keyboard is quite better than the dell inspiron that looks like a toy

    Angela Maria Lamprecht Hollossy

    I was really surprised, despite many criticisms that I have read this laptop has gone very well. The 256GB SSD it brings is an Intel 600 NVME, it gives me 1545MB reading and 580 MB writing. I have not had problems of overheating, I have searched for the nitrosense program but I have not found in this model so look for a compatible one and I have put the one of the pradator sense that has worked perfectly with all the options unlocked. The screen is not very bright but it is enough for what I use, the keyboard is quite better than the dell inspiron that looks like a toy. I liked it because it brings the kit to put another HDD, I bought a 480GB SATA III SSD with writing speed 580MB and read 500GB for only 69 USD and I have placed an extra 8GB RAM and have 16GB in total. the start is surprisingly fast less than 10 seconds. Many people think that the carcass looks cheap but it has a reason to be .. the weight .. it is extremely light that for me that is excellent no matter how much they say it looks cheap. The ports they bring are enough for me. I like the USB port type C since I can charge my phone. Excellent purchase if you decide for this laptop .. Thank you Acer …

    Powerful laptop for the price. Heavier than expected to carry around.

    Alex Liu

    Amazing computer for the given price; there’s a coolboost system that you can turn on. If anyone plays overwatch; it runs on 70FPS with the power plugged in and roughly 50C-55C when running with coolboost on. If you’re the type to run multiple things in the background while playing games, then I would recommend a 16GB RAM. I found 8GB to be barely enough with only one application open at a time. It is heavier than I had expected to carry it around. If anyone wants to use it for classes and play games in-between, this is more than enough, as long as you don’t mind the weight of it.

    Excellent, but could use a cooling pad

    Hobbitses

    I got this laptop a few months ago. So far I’ve played games such as GTA5, GTA4, Fallout:New Vegas, ARMA 3, etc.
    It runs very well. Honestly it’s a steal for the specs included. If you’re a laptop snob you’ll be able to find things to nitpick about (no brushed aluminum shell, etc) but performance wise you’re getting more than what you’re paying for.
    I’ve installed an extra 8gb ram card, and plan on installing a 2.5″ 500 gb ssd. The laptop comes with the bracket necessary for mounting an ssd, but the screws come in a bag with the instructions and are easy to throw out if you aren’t looking for them.
    The only issue is that this laptop can get pretty hot. This isn’t uncommon with gaming laptops but heat is one of the biggest enemies of electronics so I HIGHLY recommend getting a cooling pad with fans. I’ve been able to play GTA5, Skyrim, etc on high/ultra settings for 5+ hours withought ever experiencing throttling with the cooling pad. It runs fine withought it but it does get hotter.
    Overall I’m super happy with this laptop. It’s very easy to add storage/ram and it can handle pretty much any modern game. Don’t forget the cooling pad though.

    Fantastic value for the cost

    epicfail48

    Having had this unit for several months now, here are my impressions:
    – Fantastic value for the cost. Build quality is solid, while the entire unit is plastic it avoids feeling cheap like other laptops can
    – Excellent gaming performance. No, its not an uber-powerful desktop, and no, it wont unseat a top-of-the-line Razer Blade Pro, but it will play modern games at medium-high settings with a solid frame rate. More than powerful enough for casual gaming
    – Surprisingly good sound quality
    – Surprisingly quiet cooling

    Overall ive loved this laptop. It gets the job done and done well, and is priced extremely competitively. As mentioned, modern games like Destiny 2 can be played at 60fps on medium settings, hardly a powerhouse but plenty for casual gaming. The keyboard is nothing to write home about, ditto the screen, but they get the job done with no fuss, which is really all you need most of the time. Battery life is OK, but nothing to write home about. Casual use gets about 6 hours, though while gaming that number drops hard. No 12+ hour life here, you want that go shell out for something without a dedicated graphics card. There are a few negatives though;

    – Fingerprint magnet. The finish on the lid and around the keyboard shows every possible mark.
    – Connectivity. Not horrible, but you are limited to 3 USB 3.0 ports, and while there is a USB-c port, its not the latest standard that would allow you to power the laptop or connect a monitor (that i know of). The headphone jack is a combined headphone/mic port. Hardly a deal breaker, but i still wouldve like to have a seperate mic port. Puzzlingly, there is an SD card slot, i cant help but thing that space would be better used for more USB ports, or at least the aforementioned mic jack.

    Theres a few other smaller issues as well. The keyboard, for example, is fully backlit, but controls are limited to on and off, with no user control. The backlight is on at all times with the laptop plugged in, and shuts off after 5 seconds of inactivity without the charger connected. There are no other options, unfortunately, like it or leave. The trackpad is another point of contention, it works extremely well and is plenty sensitive, but the bottom edge is extremely close to the edges of both the keyboard and the unit. Accidental mouse movements are abundant, particularly in gaming unless you disable the trackpad

    Overall though, the good outweighs the bad by a fair margin on this. If youre looking for a relatively inexpensive laptop with a dedicated GPU that can handle relatively modern games, look no further. Just remember that this is an $800 laptop, it wont compete with a $2000 Razer, or even a gaming desktop

    Gamer Lite - Superb Hardware

    Evan Fowler

    This is an excellent laptop for gaming, basic productivity, or even some coding for a Comp Sci/Technology student. It has a bright, somewhat color-accurate IPS display, a nicely spaced, back-lit keyboard with very quiet keys for typing, and of course the beasty combination of a 7th gen Core i5 processor, a GTX 1050 Ti GPU, and 8 GB of RAM to keep it all humming nicely. This is of course considered and “entry level” platform for a serious PC gamer, but this isn’t really for a serious PC gamer is it? Just for reference I am coming from a Lenovo IdeaPad y410p with an intel i7-4700MQ processor, a GT 755M GPU and also 8 GB of RAM, and that is a really nice mid-tier gaming laptop from about 5 years back and a great machine. Though the cheaper i5 included with this machine is still outstripped, power-wise, by my 5 year old i7 (with hyper-threading) the overall build of this budget acer gaming PC absolutely destroys everything else on the Lenovo performance-wise. The newer i5 is neck and neck with the i7, but the “budget” GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GB of VRAM (vs. the GT755M 2 GB VRAM) and 256 GB SSD make a gigantic difference in how games load and play.

    Why do I call this “Gamer Lite”? Well because this laptop really only comes with the bare minimum required for a PC gamer. You only get a 256 GB SSD, and 8 GB of RAM. The real excellent upgrade is the GTX 1050 Ti GPU, which is freakin stellar for a PC priced under $1000 USD. Basically, you get everything you need to run most AAA titles at High settings, ON A LAPTOP THAT COSTS $750 USD! 256 GB isn’t gonna give you a lot of space for a huge library (obviously) but the fact that it is solid state makes it so quick. Win 10 boots in seconds. Steam opens literally instantly. Instantly! Not exaggerating. Kiss those long load times goodbye.
    I did a lot of research before I decided on this laptop, and there are a few reviewers (YouTube and website reviews) out there talking a lot about heat. It is true, this particular laptop doesn’t have the best design for cooling, but it is totally fine for normal use. I mean if you want to run a AAA title on Ultra settings for several hours then yeah, your CPU and GPU are gonna get hot and start to degrade. But this thing isn’t for that. That’s what a maxed out gaming tower with 10 fans and liquid cooling is for. Go buy that if that’s what you want to do. I’ve seen external heat tests on this thing that look totally in line with what you would want from a performance laptop. If it gets hot then that means its time to go outside and talk to people LOL.
    Honestly, great value for an excellent setup. Not the best. Not even by far the worst. At this price point your options are quite limited but this is really the best bang for your buck. And also, pretty nice to use just as a PC.

    For the money, I’m satisfied w/ my purchase. I bought it to be used as a remote work PC for software development (.NET apps) and for occasional gaming.

    Screen: Colors and black levels are great. Its max brightness is probably too dim for the laptop to be used outdoors, if that’s important to you.
    Keyboard: Nice to type on. I still prefer “full keyboard” laptops like Alienware and old Dell laptops, but I can type quickly on this and it’s comfortable enough.
    Heat: It’s pretty much always warm, regardless of what you’re doing. The upside is that’s true when gaming; it doesn’t get extremely hot.
    Weight: It doesn’t feel heavy in my lap and it’s well balanced. It’s very easy to open and close the screen one-handed. Good build quality.
    Battery: OK. So long as the 1050ti GPU is off, it seems to have a ~4hour battery (of actual use). Since this is a gaming PC, I feel that’s decent.
    Performance: Witcher 3 runs at 55-60fps consistently w/ 1600×900 and high graphics (hair works off) and looks GREAT! Titanfall 2 “feels” like it runs @ 60fps with 1080p and high graphics, but I haven’t ran it with FRAPS to be sure. Overwatch is an unwavering 60fps at high settings.

    Regarding upgrades: There is an extra hard-drive access panel and an access panel for (I assume) RAM. I opened the hard-drive panel, saw there was a cable and mounting hardware for an extra drive, so I connected a 256gb SSD I had from a prior laptop. I restarted the laptop, windows 10 detected the drive, and I was able to format it in seconds. I’ll probably add a second 8gb stick of ram as a future upgrade.
