    Isn't this a bit pricey for an Acer? I realize that it has Thunderbolt, but is this worth $1700?

      specs are good for the price. Don't be a badge snob.

      Well it sounds bit pricey for Acer.

      But it's brand new model with very good specs (latest i7 cpu, 16gb ram, 512ssd and thunderbolt 3 under 1kg). I was going to buy Dell XPS 13 with same spec but that is at least $1k more.

      Hope I'm not going to be disappointed.

      Acers are actually quite good

    •  

      It weighs 990g. It's insanely cheap for those specs and that weight.

  •  

    TIL there's 10th Gen cores out now.

    Struggling! Xps13 you may can get a same spec on promotion.but not 2 in 1.
    Any thoughts?

      This Acer is more close in spec with XPS 13 2 in 1.

      Normal XPS 13 uses i7-10510U CPU vs i7-1065G7. They are both 10th generation but Acer and 2 in 1 has the 10nm CPU with G7 Iris graphics which is actualy quite good for integrated GPU.

      Also Acer and XPS 13 2 in 1 use DDR4 Ram.

      Where can you get XPS 13 with 16GB ram and 512 SSD for ~$1700?

        Depends on what you need really. Ice lake processors with improve your graphics but comet lake processors will outperform ice lakes on performance.

    It says it's a 2 in 1 on JB's website. Can someone confirm if this is correct?

    Are the models with MX250 coming out soon in Australia?

    For that price I would rather get the Asus Zenbook Duo https://www.mwave.com.au/product/asus-zenbook-duo-ux481fl-14...

    I bought this from JB Hifi this morning. My quick review.

    Looks not too bad, it's not premium but doesn't look cheap either.

    Keyboard feels good however for me the keys are slightly too small. But this is probably fine and will get used to it. The key back lighting is a bit dull, even though there are 4 settings (and another for 'off'). Arrow keys are a bit small and the page up/down keys are in a bit of a weird position. Sleep key (shared with F1) is right next to the Escape key and have hit this by accident a few times already. All in all, better than average, would love the keys to be 10% larger in size though.

    Touchpad feels good for a PC. Had to turn off the right-click tap/click zone as I kept bumping it. I use two finger tap for right-click instead.

    Fingerprint reader has barely worked and I end up resorting to pin for login most times. Perhaps I need to 'teach' it better.

    Screen is OK but not great, not the worst not the best. It's not a 2-in-1 but it is touchscreen. Touch is OK, sometimes it's not responsive when I go from touchpad to using the touchscreen but not a big deal.

    One USB-C port is a bit disappointing but that's not a big issue for me.

    At normal power settings it doesn't get too hot. I increased this to the Performance mode and it did get quite hot underneath. On my lap it was a bit uncomfortable. On a desk it should be fine. So I try to have it at the balanced mode when on my lap.

    All in all, I think it's worth it if you need/want the extra ram over something like the Dell that's going for around $1100. I like the smaller form factor.

    Let me know if you have any questions I can help with.

    Edit: Speakers are straight garbage
