    It's public dominion that this version it's been dropped instead of 9th gen Intel CPU's and a GTX 1650 GPU.
    Where is it sold anyway??? Release date was in April. It's August soon!

        Even so it's still not being sold anywhere, not even in the Acer Store.

    I am thinking of buying this. It is now september 2019, and the price is 999$… For that price, I think its a good deal? I/m not a techy person, i use it for day to day, music, movies… Light gaming… I read about the games you tested here, but as I dont understand everything, does it support said games or not?
    As the guy told me that sells these, he said I can add 8 gigs of RAM, 16 total, for an extra 35$, which is not much…. And for 70$ more, extra 1 TB of SSD….
    What do you think about that? I did a lot of research, and as I am not a computer guy, I somehow found that this one is the golden middle between everyday laptop and a gaming laptop… Thanks for the help! Cheers!

    hi, is this laptop a better option for 3D software (Blender) than the A717-71G with the GTX 1050Ti?

    thank you

    Hello, I'm really glad for that I have bought this model of Acer after reading your review. Could you tell me if Beasus charger 45W on USB-C will able to charge that device? (5V/3a, 9V/3a, 12V/3a, 15V/3a, 20V/2,25a) Are you sure that ultrabook support charging on USB-C? Acer don't share that information.

      It's been a while since I've reviewed this and I remember I haven't' personally tested USB-C charging on my unit. You could give it a try with any available power bank.

    I don't have any device to check this function. I plan to buy a charger. Do you know where you found information on the possibility of charging?

      Sry, I don't remember. Make sure to buy from a place that allows returns, just to be safe in case this doesn't work.

    I Called to acer support and ask about that feature but they denied this feature for my model. Acer said it's no power delivery function in my port. I have tried charge my aspire 7 via USB-C with corporate PSU Lenovo 20V 3,25A (65W). surprisingly it works as you can see on attached photos.

    Could you tell me if charging by this port is safe for battery and motherboard?

      Acer's support is crap, not a surprise there. Looks like it actually works, and it should run just fine with that charger.

    Hello again, charging by usb-c port works but it allow transfer power up to 26 wats. (19,4v 1,35a) I have checked it by usb-c tester. It's nice option to charge notebook when it's switched off. Battery drain should be expected when notebook works during usb-c charging. I'm a bit disapointed becouse I bought specially 65W usb-c psu for this device.
