It would depend on what your definition of gaming is. Will you be able to play the latest and greatest? No. Solitaire yes. Maybe even a few MOBA's. Your best bet would be to look up the integrated graphics with the game you are trying to play. So just google "Intel 620 with League of Legenda" without the quotesand replace the game with whatever you want to play.

Selective reading my bad lol. To answer your question it would depend on what your purpose would be. For a school laptop this would be more than enough to run office and related software. If you're doing computer design stuff or or lots of film editing then you will probably need something beefier.

It's got a ssd, looks like resolution is nice for the size. The only thing I could pick at would be the single DIMM of ram however these days you can get single DIMM ram that go pretty high. You should look into whether or not it has a second slot. Good luck.

Keyboard ergonomics is pretty important, but I do know my body can adapt. Specs look great. Weight looks nice for tablet conversion.

I know the general SD consensus is to jump on a good deal and not wait for Black Friday. But what about this one. Deal ends on the 21st.

Very close to BF. Looking for an 8th gen quad core, 8gb ram minimum, SSD boot drive minimum, 2 in 1 with pen cabability with good look&feel reviews.

Considering flex 5, Lenovo yoga, this, hp envy 360...
IPS screen preferred. Budget 600 so I can afford warranty.

How do these flex laptops compare to surface pro 4 or the new surface laptop from a build perspective (not specs perspective)

I have had good experience with Acer. Owned a netbook from years ago that still works.

Acer doesn't have good reputation. Any company's support is annoying to deal with. Acer's is on another level.

Otherwise, the specs are pretty great.

Edit: actually I remember Costco is pretty good with exchanges. Maybe that would help.

Bought this laptop about a month ago for the same price. This is a very nice laptop. But, there is one big con, a very loud noise when its fan is on.

From what I can gather, the 7th gen Intel Spin 5 has a plastic base, but the 8th gen models are all metal. Unfortunately, Acer itself doesn't make this very clear. Does yours have an all-metal exterior? Thanks!
