That guy doesn't know what he's talking about. I have this laptop and it is indeed an IPS screen. You can go directly to the manufacturer website and look at the specs yourself to find that is IPS. It's a very beautiful screen with great viewing angles. I wish it was a tad brighter, but as is, is still much brighter than some of my previous lenovo laptops.
no. you can't run Windows. over and over again. no.

I have this model, and before I purchased it I contacted acer support who confirmed it's IPS. After receiving the laptop I can confirm the it has extremely wide viewing angles just like my other IPS screens.

It also has free returns. IMO this is better than the previous FP meh.com deal because this has a bigger display, and CPU is much faster.

Too bad they don't offer the 32GB model for a little more.

How could you say it does not have an IPS display?
It's listed as IPS and I cannot find any information that it is TN.
Please post a link.

A simple google search of the part number the first search result is the item on best buys web page. Look at the item in the bm store. The screen on that one looks awful. I know I have been researching this exact model and just bought one. I was curious because I thought I overpaid after seeing this Groupon offer but, the item listed on Groupon is not IPS it is for the washed out TN panel model CB5-571-C4G4. These are not the same model. The IPS model is CB5-571-C1DZ this is straight from Acer website.

I looked all over Acer's website and could not locate the exact model being offered by Groupon

Take a look: http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/cont...romebook15

Very likely this is a BestBuy-only model

Also found a youtube video showing an unboxing of the exact model being offered by Groupon:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyvVh-_48wU

The left hand part of the Chomebook screen in that video says "Full HD 1080"

IPS??? I don't know...
