    Thank you for this very informative review!
    Just wondering if you have any idea what the last 2 letters in the model number mean. I’ve been searching for an answer but can’t find it anywhere!
    Example: the Acer Predator 15 G9-591-70XR, G9-591-70DV and G9-591-70VM
    What do the XR, DV and VM stand for?
    Thank you

      Not sure, to be frank, but I’d reckon each has a different configuration?

    I bought this computer after reading your review and have to disagree on the trackpad.It has not performed correctly for me since the day I bought it. The cursor lagged behind, it had really slow movements that took 4 to 6 swipes just to move from one side of the screen to the other.

    That was the first issue.

    Issue #2 was the scrolling. Half the time it didn’t even work. I sent it in to Acer for repairs, they updated the BIOS, so now it works perfectly about 50% of the time and is a disaster the rest of the time. I’m going to have to return the computer over this issue, which kills me because I spent two months researching for the best computer. This blog was a big help in deciding what to get, but Acer said they use a generic trackpad in this model, so I think that’s why quality control standards slipped and caused my problems. A real bummer for an otherwise great computer.

      Hi, I’m sorry for that. I’m very picky when it comes to trackpads and it performed well on this test unit, otherwise you would have read about it in the article. Perhaps I was lucky or you drew a short straw.

      I wouldn’t have expected such quality control issues in this price range, Acer should know better.
