The fit and finish on this is spectacular. Despite being slightly larger than the XPS 13 9360, this seems noticeably lighter in hand. Perfect for hauling around campus all day.
Picked up a WD Blue in order to get around the limited capacity of the 64GB EMMC storage. Youtube has instructionals for m.2(sata) installation.
Other notes after a couple of weeks using this laptop:
- The little quad-core is snappy (even stands up to photo editing in Lightroom) without the need for a fan, so no noise or quality issues down the road!
- The IPS screen isn't quite as crisp as the 9360, but it has much less glare thanks to its matte coating. Definitely punches above its weight class here.
- Battery life is phenomenal. Sure it has a lot to do with the specs, but bottom line is that it lasts all day.
Acer did a bang up job on this $319 (Walmart) laptop. The recertified version is indistinguishable from new at only 2/3 of the normal price, allowing the end user to transform it from chromebook slayer to surprisingly nice daily driver with the simple addition of a sata m.2 SSD, all the while staying under MSRP
