I am rocking an Core i5 4440, GTX 770 (plays everything on high/Ultra (BF4, Steam Games, Etc). 32GB of Ballistic Crucial RAM, 120gb mSata SSD in the mini PCIe slot. 2TB Storage and Blu-ray Drive.... Read more…

Very Fast boot (used mSata SSD with Mini PCIe slot
Heat pipe system works
Great design for SFF case
4 USB 3.0 ports
Price for performance
DO NOT USE STOCK THERMAL PASTE REALLY HORRIBLE. .. My CPU temps rose to a dangerous 72 C. I cleaned up the thermal paste and apply Noctua Thermal compound. Now when I game, my CPU does not rise above
No CDDVD ROM
There is a slot for you to buy and install an internal Drive but I'm having some trouble locating the correct Size of drive for this Notebook
SO MUCH Acer BloatWare. .. so much. .. Roughly 30 of Bloated Memory to delete. I'm going to wipe the HD and reinstall Wi 7, Wi 8 sucks in my opinion
The battery is a little smaller in capacity than I'd prefer 3 6 hours depending on stress of use)
