How does the GTX 1050ti compare to the 1050 in terms of power efficiency and the generation of heat?

About the same, but pretty big performance increase

Thanks.
Don't care so much about performance increase. I just want a GFX card as a 'just in case' sort of thing.

Bought an acer nitro similar to this last summer. The screen broke within the first four months, sent back to be repaired. Pretty cheap quality for the price paid honestly, runs pretty hot as well. Trackpad went out shortly after receiving it back as well - didn't bother jumping through the hoops to send it back. YMMV.

The screen did not just break on its own. And likely whatever you did to break the screen could have also damaged your trackpad but since it was sent fir a screen replacement thats all they did. Acer machines are decent with the nitro series even more so. Every laptop outside of a panasonic tough book has some level of fragility.

My current laptop is a Dell that has lasted me nearly a decade (albeit with some minor upgrades along the way), so my experience has shown them to be pretty well built. I only bring this up because you can get a very similar build (with slightly faster processor I think) from Dell for under $1k right now.

Never owned an Acer before, so I can't comment on build quality. If it is inferior to Dell (which is probably just mid-range), then this deal seems only decent at best. Anyone with experience with Acer care to comment?

Would also be curious to hear from anyone who has had an Asus laptop recently. Newegg also has a deal on a gaming machine from them with a few extra perks

Really debating about buying this. My only problem is the build quality. I have heard about the plastic being very fragile and the hinges breaking and the protection plans start at 130 Frown

I bought one but an i5 version and it's fast, have no complaints so far. Have it for a month.
