Thread Details

Best Buy has this model on sale for 150 off via student discount coupon. Here is the link-> http://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-...Id=5209401

Specs are as follows:
15.6 IPS Full HD (1920*1080) Convertible Display
1TB HDD
Backlit Keyboard
USB Type-C Port
3 USB 3.0 Ports
Intel 2.3 gigahertz 6th Generation Core i5
8 gigabytes RAM (4 Onboard, 4 in 1 slot)
MIMO 802.11ac Wifi
9 hours Battery Life

The laptop is really good except that it has backlight bleed. It is not really noticeable under lights but it's very distracting in the dark.

The Lenovo has a 14" inch screen and a SSD so it will be smaller and much faster. If you can afford it, go for acer and get hard disk replaced with a SSD.

Thank you. Is it easy to replace the hdd to ssd? Also why can't I replace the Lenovo with a bigger ssd. Which makes more sense in terms of specs

You could do that as well. They are evenly matched in terms of specs apart from an extra Usb Type-C port on the acer. It is really easy to replace the hard drive. It takes 10-15 minutes with a simple screwdriver.

No SSD mean No good deal for this money. If they'd drop the price by $70, then it would pay for the SSD making it a fair price for wish SlickDeals minded people like you.
