Let me first start off by saying that I've not been in the PC gaming market seriously, for nearly a decade. This laptop is my first step back into PC/MNK gaming.Starting with the most important aspect of this laptop, the AMD Ryzen 4600H specs are LEGIT. Plenty of power to run Windows smoothly, short load times, easy multitasking. Granted, my baseline, and what I've been using for nearly the last decade, has been a Chromebook. Not really in the same league, but I'm stunned by the ease that it runs multiple programs without much issue.I've not dove much into the new AAA+ games on the market, but I doubt this has that kind of prowess to keep pace. What I can say is that my Steam account is filled with games from the early to mid-2010s, and this laptop can power through them easily. Again, I'm not sure how well it could handle a game like COD or Cyberpunk 2077, but for what I'm playing, it works quite well.Now for some of the negatives;Battery life is abysmal if you're gaming. While just using as an everyday laptop, it's adequate. I've been filling out forms and spreadsheets for the last few hours, and am still north of 75%. However, the first few nights I dropped into a few games of PUBG without plugging it in, and got only an hour or so of battery life. Not sure how normal that is for a gaming laptop (again, been out of the game for a while), but something to take note of. If you're going to do any sort of extensive gaming session, this WILL need to be plugged in the entire time.Secondly, the fan cooling the entire rig is LOUD. It sounds like a jet is about to take off. There are adjustable settings where you can customize the speed of the fan, and keep the RPMs down, but then the laptop starts running pretty hot. Again, not to sound like a broken record, not sure how normal that is, but it is a thing.Lastly, I'm not the biggest fan of the built in keyboard for gaming. The keys are a bit flat and do not extend very high above the case. I'm finding a bit a difficulty get used to it while playing FPS titles, lots of mishitting keys, fingers slipping, that sort of thing. As I type, it feels fine, but not a super responsive keyboard for those quick movements.All in all, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. Good quality, feels solid, performs very, very well. It just has a few drawbacks that people may want to consider before purchasing.
I was researching gaming laptops as our current ones get very glitchy with some online games. The research concluded that we would prefer at least 16gb RAM and i7 processor like my friend has. Well, all laptops with i7 processors are running on high price right now, so I decided to try this i5 that advertises will beat i7. Well, I am not sure if it beats it, but it surely delivers what it needs. The performance is really good. I am not very tech savvy and I rely on reviews and research, and for this Acer I think I hit a good product at a very affordable price (got it while it was on sale for $799)I also like the lighted keyboard. It's not fancy rainbow, just red, but it does look nice.The packaging itself was sturdy and protected the product. Since the laptop was sold through a Amazon seller, they also included some extras. Thumbs up!
After having to sell my Xbox One and games from splitting up with my wife a while back, I developed an interest in PC gaming. This laptop was recommended by a sibling who is very knowledgeable about computer specs and I absolutely love it. It’s fast, I had money to go all in for 32 GB of memory for future-proofing and 2 terabytes of hard drive space. I keep it plugged in, so while battery life is adequate unplugged (around 2 hours), it’s just not a concern. I installed just about all the games I purchased on Steam (around 700 GB at this point) and I still have over a terabyte leftover for music and video editing. The sound of the fan is noticeable, but that was no problem when I added quality speakers containing a subwoofer.I have ordered an Acer screen along with a mouse and keyboard to go along with this laptop. I am happy with this purchase.
