    Nice review, liked the emphasis and detail into noise.
    Just one off comment, unless your friend has to use CPU render in Blender because he maxes the RTX 4070 paltry VRAM using Blender do not require CPU performance since render is done by GPU, plus 29000 points in Cinebench R23 CPU isa very good reference and very respectable. And this gives the biggest criticism to this laptop which is not related at all to Acer, but to Nvidia decision to put only 8GB VRAM in 4070.

      true, you're most likely using GPU rendering in Blender anyway.

      The Cinebench r23 score is high because the CPU runs at high power for a few minutes, before the 115W cap kicks in. that's why the score drops by about 15% in the 10-min loop

        Ok, thanks for pointing the 10 min loop.
