Seems like a pretty awesome deal for a mid-spec Gaming Laptop.

    Great price.

    Well rounded laptop for a decent price. If i wasnt a desktop person, i'd jump on this.

    If the description is accurate for the screen:
    "15.6 FHD IPS display. Enjoy smooth, blur-free gameplay with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time overdrive. We ve boosted the screen-to-body ratio to 80% with narrow 7.18mm bezels and provided lifelike colors using a 72% NTSC, 300-nit panel."

    This appears to be a review for the laptop (close enough):

    58.75 Wh battery

      I don't think that's the case for this specific model/SKU, I'd buy it assuming it has a regular 60hz screen. If you get lucky and it has a 144hz screen then you win.

    Far out on the Bing Lee website it states the SKU has a 144Hz IPS screen. This is a really good price for the laptop then!

    Is this better than previous deal for dell G5 15 $999?
    Dell: i7-8750H Processor, 8GB ram, GTX 1060 6GB Max-Q, 128GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive + 1TB 5400RPM 2.5" SATA Hard Drive
    Screen both are ips.

    This Acer says slim bezel but from pictures it is very thick?

      I bought the dell G5 15 from the $999 deal and it is a pretty good laptop. This is about $300 more but it does have 256gb of NVMe SSD and also double the ram at 16gb. Not too sure about the graphics card performance but if you consider the extras, it seems to be reasonable price for the acer

        Same I got the Dell G5 15 Deal, I think it's a better deal for $999, came with Thunderbolt 3, this Acer doesn't have it.
        Also more people can purchase the Dell deal, I think it was 64, while this Acer quantity are limited.

        • +1 vote

          I see. Yes no Thunderbolt and no se card reader from review I read. But acer 1660 is way better than 1060

          •  

            @ChiMot: That's correct, but at $300 more..still a pretty good deal.

            •  

              @kml22: I also got the Dell G5 and I feel the urge to upgrade the RAM to 16GB at approximately $120 worth. I'm really happy with the Dell G5 though. I haven't used the Thunderbolt port yet, but it is nice to know it is there. No regrets here, it was the best deal at the time.

              •  

                @Canetoad: You should check out the gaming benchmark, 8GB vs 16GB vs 32GB, it makes no difference in frame rate what so ever, maybe load a little bit faster that's it.

                •  

                  @kml22: Yes, agreed. Which is why I must fight the urge to buy it… There is this nagging feeling that I have to buy it to feel complete.

                  •  

                    @Canetoad: I upgraded the nvme ssd from 128gb to 512gb as it was running out of space. Might wait a while to upgrade the RAM, not urgent for me.

      That sucks - I notice that they were bought in multiples of 2 or 3 in quick succession. So most likely people trying to flip them?

      Sucks :(

        I wouldn't be so sure. The review model here is also equipped with 2x 512GB NVMe SSDs, whereas the one on sale is only 256GB.

    Just got off the live chat with a Bing Lee rep, looks to be a 60Hz screen. Would have been an excellent buy with 144Hz …

      thank you, save my money then

      Anyone live near Bing Lee maybe can drop in and check the display unit?

    not sure if this model is 144hz, but the following listing is 144hz for sure, but the bezel is too thick

    Back in stock now

  •  

    It's 60hz

    •  

      Yes, I just received the same email. I advised them to proceed with the order.

  •  

    They have updated the information, now it said 60hz

    •  

      To me, the specs still seem really good for the price. But I'm not concerned about the refresh rate.

    Hot many memory slots does it have?

    Acer laptop normally last 2 years, if you can afford it, get Alienware

    •  

      Whats the failure mode for Acer laptops?
      I've had Toshiba, Samsung and Lenovo fail on me within 2 years as well

    •  

      Not sure under what type of usage, but I never had any bad experience with Acer. as a matter of fact when I bought a Gigabyte laptop and experienced lots of issues, with previous good experience with Acer bought a V-nitro Acer 4 years ago, gave it to my mum , brother bought a V-nitro and now I have another V-nitro 593G, none of us experienced any issues at all and all three are going strong. A laptop that lasts more that a year my mum using it I would consider a good one (lots of coffee spills, dropped 10 times, cracks everywhere, but still works :)))) )
      Having said that, never had Alienware as I cannot afford it…

    •  

      Yeah I would have thought so but I sold 2 customers Nitros almost exactly 3 years ago and they're both still working great.

      Maybe 4 years?

      • +1 vote

        Would u recommend getting the 2 year additional warranty? It's approx 229$

        •  

          Me personally, no. I did buy a 3 year on-site warranty with an Asus UX31A once, but they had a special at $99 and the UX31A was the first of the Zenbook line so I was a bit weary (didn't need to be still going!!!)

          If it's a MANUFACTURER warranty it is worth considering but my experience is that mostly it's the Hard Disk that fails in notebooks (not so much of a problem now that SSD is the order of the day) and in the old days notebooks with discreet graphics used to fail eventually as well.

          But, hey, it's peace of mind I guess. If you can afford it without stress, why not?

          Do I think you need it? No, but then you'll be upset if something DOES happen withing 3 years with the notebook.

          :)

      Hows it compare to that other $999 deal that people are mentioning?

      •  

        You mean the 999 dell? Read from the top you'll find it

        • -2 votes

          Did you buy the $999? what was your conclusion from that discussion?
          Looks like NVMe 128gb are like $70, and 256gb are $120, so $50 diff
          8GB DDR4 SODIMM sticks are $70 , 16GB DDR4 SODIMM are $130, so $60 diff

          Means there's about ~$200 difference for the GPU and extras. Seems a tad pricey for a relatively minor upgrade in GPU?

  •  

    For those still interested, it seems to be back in stock

  •  

    It feels like only yesterday I was recommending people the acer predator helios 300 with a 1060 6gb man time flies fast.

    Really makes you think.
