Cons: it has a known issue with turning off under battery power, the Best Buy reviews warn of this. It's last year's processor, 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-7300HQ.

But I've had great luck with Acer the past 24 months and I rank them above Dell and HP in terms of quality / defect rate.

Official Acer page specs say 32GB of RAM supported. https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/con....Q2QAA.016 And it has 4 USB ports and a bult-in Ethernet network port. Research suggests it has sata m.2 port + 2.5" drive bay. So, you could put in two SSD drives (one m.2 and one 2.5" SATA)... but it does not support the high-speed NVMe SSD. Details on it having support for 2 drives: http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/...-slot.html

The price is right for a GPU system and 1080p.

I'm debating returning my Yoga 730 15" as I really want a cheap 1080p system and don't really need the GPU - but this Lenovo Yoga seems to have some backlight fluctuations on the screen. The extra weight is a given with the big GPU and it's heat sinks.

I have this laptop and it's buttery smooth and very fast. I added a 2.5" Samsung 850 SSD for storage in the available bay and it's perfect for my use. Highly recommend this laptop!
