    thanks for the review.

    actually i prefer the backlight only starting with a key press.
    when im surfing at nights, without typing, its goes on my nerves that the light starts all the time and i have to switch it off and on all the time..

    i also cannot understand the shitty speakers acer is using. the main purpose of a laptop like this is also media consumtion. this and the tiny battery is a reason i wouldnt buy this, but i considered.

    also that the fan is not in permanently in idle mode when doing light stuff like browsing turns me off. im using a samsung now (with a 1260p) and the fan in this situations never turns on.
    im sure this could be handled better, like a cpu fan control..

    otherwise i like the concept of a ryzen based thin & light 16"
    wish 17" lg grams would have the option of a ryzen with oled displays, would instabuy it.

    I'm doing some benchmarking on Linux and Phoronix did test Framework and Swift Edge. The Framework pushes like 50W+ for the 7840U while Edge is much less. At 24W GPD Win Max 2 isn't beating Framework, but it's not that far off. In some more memory-reliant benchmarks both Edge and GDP pull ahead.
