    Where can i buy this laptop? I can't seem to find an online store that has them

      BH photo carries it in the US, but only in one configuration, and it's also available in Germany for now.

        That's actually not true. I'm looking for delivery in belgium and the only european countrythat has some configurations in stock, is germany. However, these all come with a QWERTZ keyboard, which is not very practical. If you have found anything else, i would love to here.

        Well, I can't check availability everywhere, you'd have to contact your local shops or perhaps Acer representatives and ask them about it :)

        Ofcourse not, the point i was trying to make is that this laptop simply isn't available (yet) in europe except for germany :)

        Noted, thanks, an I also edited the previous comment to mention that.

        You can use something like autohotkey to switch the Y and Z buttons. Physically you can try and switch the plastic buttons too, or put a sticker over them.

        Thanks for the review. Much appreciated. Think it's the first one out worldwide?

        This is – as far as I can tell – the only laptop with a 1060 gtx or better without any of the typical gaming aesthetics (red keyboard backlight can be disabled luckily). This will be a big selling point for a lot of people I guess. At least for me it is. I’m almost 40 and still like to play my games, but not everyone I come into contact with has to know this…

        At CES they were announced for Feb. 2017 but seems they got delayed. Not sure what happened there. So happy they now are becoming available (not everywhere though it seems and not all models – not seeing a lot of 'in stock' but lots of preorder)

        This was a review sample provided by Acer and they usually have these available for us before the actual products are released. I do expect to see them in shops in the near future, some configurations are already available in some countries.

    Great Review and from the hardware great device, however I would highly recommend Acer to optimize the fan speed configuration for low CPU load usage with an update, as two Fans at audible speed seems to me to high configured for the low Temperatures at typical office tasks and prevent me from buying the notebook. In the next version it might be also smart to widen the air intakes on the bottom and back of the laptop to improve the cooling at high load situations.

    • Andrei Girbea

      March 8, 2017 at 4:44 am

      I'm not going to argue with the first part of what you said, but the intake and exhaust grills are wide enough imo. The thing is, this laptop is fairly thin when compared to others with similar hardware, that's why it gets a little hotter. Not sure if bigger grills would help. Also, keep in mind the back temperatures recorded are the highest in each section, so in this case the area right near the exhaust gets to 50s and then temperatures drop as you go down towards the black plastic case.

      Hi. First my unit was overheating 90 and up. But after a long searvh and study of 6 months i can keep its cpu and gpu around 70 – 75/78 degrees. As it goes many steps needed simuktaneously to reach this result. In short these are:
      1. Room temp around 20-25 celsius degree
      2. Undervolt your cpu
      3. Repaste. I got nt h1 and acer repasted both gpu and cpu
      4. I got a con gizmo laptop stand with 6 fans
      5. Speed up fans to full capacity when youre playing heavy games.
      I know it may shorten the fans life but i would much rather keep components more expensive safe and pay small money for new fans then trashing the expensive notebook.

      So all these things together managed to keep my temps around 70 – 75/78 degrees. Not for 10 mins but for hours of gaming. NO THROTTLING AT ALL. Plus cpu turbo boost is on as well.

    Hi, are you going to review the 17-inch model too?

    Thanks for the review. I have a few comments. First, I think there is a typo in the specifications: it says "Weight 6.85 lbs (2.51 kg)", but 1 kg = 2.2 lbs so both can't be true. Based on what you write later in the article, that should be 5.53 lbs and not 6.85 (which would be very heavy for a 15" laptop).

    Second, do you know if the Chi Mei UHD display is a "true" 4K display (like on the previous version of this laptop) or a "pentile" display? I tried to Google the model number, but couldn't find anything.

    Finally, since this is a pre-production version, do you know if there is any possibility of changes such as optimization of the fan behavior?

    • Andrei Girbea

      March 8, 2017 at 6:35 pm

      Thanks for the heads up on the error.

      Good question on the display's matrix, I can't tell for sure and I don't have the tools to take a detailed look at pixels. I'm inclined to say it's not pentile based on color accuracy alone, but I could be wrong.

      As for the fans' behavior, perhaps, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it. These pro-production unit are usually identical to the retail versions, but a BIOS update could be released to tweak the fans.

    nice review, is the heat always uncomfortable aspect if we using this laptop out door ?

    btw Andrei, would you mind to review new dell inspiron 15 7567 (GTX1050Ti) please.

    temperatures of cpu are really high in the stress test imho.:(
    do you think that a different speed control of fans could reduce temps? do you think that a cpu/gpu repaste could be useful? there are warranty stickers over cooling system o screws when you disassembly this laptop?

    • Andrei Girbea

      March 16, 2017 at 2:26 pm

      There are pictures of the internals in the post. Repasting usually helps. Regardless, stress test temperatures aren't relevant for daily use.

        do you know if thunderbolt3 is 2 lanes or 4 lanes?

      • Andrei Girbea

        April 10, 2017 at 4:27 pm

        haven't checked when I reviewed that one unfortunately.

    Great review, thanks. One comment, though: I read elsewhere that the SSD was an NVMe PCIe. Do you know if it depends on the model?
    I've been eagerly waiting for a review and for this laptop to be available, since I discarded the main alternatives I see: the asus gl502-vm has half the ram soldered on the mainboard, which is a no-go for me, and I've read everywhere that the keyboard layout of the new MSI models is completely bizarre. The alienware15 seems ok, but it's around 2k€ for a similar setup.
    Long story short, I asked acer when it will be available and just a couple of days ago I received a message from them saying that they had launched the vx15 in Spain and that the v15 was expected to be available really soon.

      I'd expect most configurations not to ship with NVMe SSDs, but SATA 3 SSDs instead. You'd have to double check with the seller or just replace the default SSD with an NVMe stick yourself.

    I am very interested in this laptop, but in the FHD version, do you have any information about how this screen behaves? info about coverage and brightness would be welcome. I have decided to ask after seeing your comment about fhd screen in 17 version.

    Hey folks, Does anybody know if it is possible to replace the 2015 model's battery with the one of 2017? It's far bigger and mine else getting used.

    Hello, i just bought this laptop love it, but i am concern with how hot it gets when gaming its about what you posted should i return it do you think that almost 50 degrees Celsius for a couple of hours of gaming will hurt it?

    Does the CPU/GPU thermal throttle under load? I heard someone mentioned the CPU reaching 90% while gaming, which is quite worrying.

      Read the Hardware and performance section and check out the hwinfo logs in there

    Hi I have the 2016 model which comes with a GTX960m is it thus possible to upgrade the GPU to a 1060m?

    Hey Andrei. Do you have any idea if its m.2 slot supports NVMe ? Would latest Damsung SSDs like 960 PRO\EVO work at full speed and be bootable ?

    • Andrei Girbea

      October 19, 2017 at 7:59 am

      NVMe drives are compatible as far as I know. Can't tell for sure about the PM961, but I'd reckon it should work fine.

    Fan is noisy as all hell. I had to put mine in another room, and RDP into it from a sanely constructed machine.
