Oh and its a quad core AMD A-12 CPU as well. It really seems to be a step above the last generation Intel I5 (6200U):

If your main concern is CPU performance and battery life, then the HP Probook deal is the way to go. If want extra storage, and a Dedicated GPU this is a better deal IMO.

Looks like it does, comes with 4GB x 2. So slots are all filled up. Does support up to 32GB however, which is nice..

I don't think this laptop has an IPS display. looks like a TN display according to this video review:

https://youtu.be/j41lI6y8XfY

also no mention of such display on various websites including Acer.

Would totally jump on this deal if it had an IPS display and a backlit keyboard.

I couldn't find any mention of a touchscreen on this model, so I assume it doesn't have one. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure It comes with two drives 1gb spindal drive and 128 gb m.2 SSD. So I am pretty sure you can swap out the either /both to upgrade. But I can't find anything to confirm this setup, but the only I can think of to accomplish what's being sold.

This does have two hard drives. The HDD is 1TB, which is a ton of space for a laptop. I bought one of these for my 13-year old who is getting into producing gaming YouTube videos.
