Acer Aspire 7 A715-71G review – powerful multimedia laptop with tamed-down looks

    I just bought the Acer Aspire 7, surprised how little coverage it gets. It has the same specs as all those entry level gaming laptops but without the gaming laptop looks, which is great.

    The screen sucks (I came from macbook air and even with it's low resolution it's way better) bit I'll be using it with an external monitor

    Mine came with a 1tb hd, so I bought a m.2 SSD separately but I have no idea how to open this thing up and install it. The back panel site firmly in place even after remo the screws.

      Hi, I haven't open this, but as far as I remember the back is similar to the Acer Helios 300 and you can find disassembly guides for that one online. You'd have to unscrew the entire bottom and try to pry it open with a CC or plastic tool, starting from the back.

      I reckon that's the VX15 you're mentioning? I'm not entirely sold on the cooling used on this Aspire 7, so I'd probably stick with the VX15 is you can live with its design.

    I am a Microsoft trainer and use this machine for presentations. There are flashier notebooks out there, but this one is the best in the matrix of expandability, price, speed and weight. I replaced the HD with a 2TB Samsung SSD, so I have 2.5TB of SSD. Not so many notebooks can have 32GB if RAM, which I need for Hyper-V. Fast 2400Hz to boot. With Ethernet and HDMI complete for the job. Does a great job for the money.

    Its been 1 week i have bought this laptop . It has GTX 1050 Ti, 128 gb ssd . All i can say is i am depressed for not buying the dells g3 15 inch laptop . While playing fortnite in high settings .. the laptop heats so much in the top left keyboard .. its untouchable .. its like playing with a lava .. forget about the ultra setting in fortnite .. ur pc will explode .. i bought this laptop for 749$ . If u are a hardcore gamer .. this laptop is not for you ! if you are a light gamer who loves editing videos this is the best laptop .. but now the price is above 800$ . i recommend u to go with the DEll G series laptop .. it is far more good and affordable !
