This particular version of the Aspire 7 with the Intel I7-8750H processor for $600 ran a few times on sale this past month or so and was an absolute steal. If you got one congratulate yourselfSmilie

With built in access ports for upgrades on the back cover (VERY rare), for $100 more you could EASILY upgrade to 16GB RAM and swap out the snail HD for an ultra fast NVME 3.0 X4 512G SSD! There is nothing else out there for this price in a 6 Core INTEL gaming laptop. This laptop easily benchmarks some 40%~50% HIGHER than all the new 8th Gen I7-8565U laptops (energy efficient 15W TDP = low clock speed...the Acer 8750H is a beast at 45W TDP!) recently introduced.

BTW, for the reviews that complained about the keyboard backlight constantly timing out and turning off, that power saving feature can now be turned OFF in the BIOS so your keyboard backlight always stays ON...
