Key Specs:

Intel Core i7 11800H 8 cores 16 threads
Nvidia RTX 3060 (110w with boost; possible increase with vbios flash)
16" IPS 2560 x 1600 (16:10) 165Hz G-Sync LCD display
16GB DDR4 RAM (up to 64GB upgradable)
512GB PCI-E Gen 4 SSD
Wifi 6
Thunderbolt 4

Claimed 12-hour battery life using using iGPU

Strong specs for the price. Weak parts are speakers and some flex in the display. Also a high wattage 3070 is more appropriate for a QHD display.

Not bad, just sad wattage generally. It's thin but doesn't matter much when it's 5.3LBS? L5 pro is like 5.4 and is Maximum wattage with whole nine yards. Went on sale for 1349$ today, out of stock now though

L5 pro is good value but requires swapping out the ram to get the full potential of the gpu. Out of the box it performs poorly like a very low wattage gpu. Also it's unavailable everywhere!

Do all the triton 500 SE models come with gsync screens and advanced optimus? Acer's website just list it as a general overview for the laptop with 240hz but no specifics mentioned on each model. Just wanted to make sure if this or all models have gsync and advanced optimus

Just a heads up, the 3060 model on sale here does NOT have GSync or Advanced Optimus

Kinda feel like a QHD display (aside from kinda being unnecessary on this size of a screen, just my opinion) would be better off paired with a 3070.

Edit: whoops, I didn't see that the OP already mentioned that.

This is the best deal. I did a lot of research for 3 days and finally nailed this down. This is a perfect balance for gamers and content creators. Other gaming laptops dont have a great color accurate display in this price range. I would have loved this more if it would be a bit lighter. At this price with $200 discount, nothing beats this
