For those wondering, this price is the MSRP. That being said, it's hardly been in stock since it was released so I'd give it a TU.

Watched a video review of this or a similar Acer laptop with the mx150 and the video card is an upgrade to the 940mx. I figure a comparable priced laptop with a gtx 1050 and also with an IPS display would be a better choice.

The laptop does have some nice specs though.

What do you think spec wise compared to the $500 Lenovo Flex 5 deal? Other than the obvious storage availability on SSD and upgraded graphics, do you build quality would be a big difference? I haven't experienced usage with any Acer products and honestly don't believe I've even encountered the brand myself. Just looking for some valuable advice please? Main usage for me would be primarily research, basic spreadsheet analysis and development, photo and video editing, lots of office work , and of course web browsing, some streaming, and teaching homeschool and basic computer use to a kindergartener. You know not too much...lol😅

for $100 more, you get 2x the storage, a mx150, plus an inch more in size. I ordered both and I'm going to decide which one to return!

Acer uses M.2 SSDs made by Kingston in these machines. They're SATA-based.

There is also an open 2.5" HDD slot with its own access panel.

MX150 is about 20% faster than the GTX950m and in some cases trades blows with the GTX960m.

It is positioned as the successor to the 940mx based on its position in the lineup but it is leaps and bounds better in terms of performance.

Don't think twice. Go with the Lenovo based on build quality. No use having great specs on a weak build.

The lenovo is 14.2" not 14". I think you made a bad decision. I would pick the Lenovo over the Acer.

Have you read the negative reviews on Amazon? No one can actually use the HDD slot since Acer doesn't include the mounting rack. So it is a lot of useless empty space!
