Not as slick of a deal as on Prime Day (when it was $269), but still one of the best value laptops around. I just received mine a few days ago, and this laptop is nice both in terms of looks and feel. Full HD (1080P) IPS screen with a backlit keyboard. Add another 4GB RAM, and this puppy will be great for most everyone (except for the gamers, video editors, CAD etc).

Got this on amazon prime day for 269 plus discover 20% off. The most surprising aspect of this laptop is the display, which is damn good for this price point with full HD . Hooked it up and tested playing 4K content on my HD tv via hdmi and it renders flawless with no frames skipped or jitter. The only downside is the proprietary acer charger and no usb c port , but given the cost they had to cut some corners some where

How much space is left on the ssd out of the box? I would think you would want to upgrade the ssd later perhaps.....not sure how much space the OS takes up.

Good deal. However, I'd definitely suggest getting at least 8GB of ram total. The vega 3 will take 1GB of ram.

Will accept 2666mhz ram, 2 slots. If you don't upgrade, it will be painfully slow.

You CAN get out of S mode.

Not much. Around 95GB after updates.

I did the same thing.

The only problem I ran into is the onboard VEGA GPU is immediately going to keep 2GB of the ram. I couldn't find a way to free it using windows or the bios.
