Acer ConceptD 5 17 inch: Good is not good enough

Acer's ConceptD 5 mid-range notebook for creative professionals is a rarity with its 17 inches. With an i7-9750H and the GeForce RTX 2060 it is positioned well. The matte display with its 100% sRGB coverage and high AdobeRGB percentage also does not need to hide. Yet, this is not enough for top of the class.

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).

Computers interested me early on. With 14 I put together the first PCs for the relatives, with the 90's these were 80286's to 486's up to Pentium 1's. What was closer to becoming a product tester? Since 2007 I have been following the world of Windows laptops and convertibles. Today I also want to separate the wheat from the chaff in vacuum cleaner robots, bread baking machines or irrigation computers, which is why I am also on the road as a freelance editor for other test websites.
