Stronger graphics and more working memory (up to 32 GB, two storage slots): Acer's 17-inch ConceptD 5 takes a different path than its 15-inch sibling. But they also share many good features, such as the 4K panel with 100% sRGB. The accurate color reproduction in form of a very low DeltaE is a characteristic of both the 15 and the 17-inch notebook similarly.
Unfortunately neither a card reader nor Thunderbolt found their way into the case, which is very strange for a workstation for creative professionals, particularly in the price range beyond 2000 Euros (~$2162).
And while the performance of the 45-watt hexa-core processor is good, it does not come near the capabilities of a Core i9, which the competitors offer at a similar price (including Thunderbolt).
