Reviews for the Acer ConceptD 5 CN516-72G-756Y

88% Acer ConceptD 5 Review (i7-11800H+RTX3060)
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The Acer ConceptD 5 laptop (with i7-11800H + RTX 3060) is a great Creative laptop. It features a business-friendly industrial design, gaming-like graphics performance, and excellent display accuracy. You might find lighter workstations with similar specs, but the high-power GPU and the overall performance/price ratio of the ConceptD 5 make it a very compelling candidate for creative professionals. The superior battery life might be a factor for those who have to work on the go. If you’re a busy professional who wants to be able to work “on the go” but also have a powerful Creative laptop when at home, the ConceptD 5 can fulfill both roles, thanks to its peak performance and large battery capacity. 64GB of RAM and the RAID0 SSD option might set it apart from gaming laptops in the same price range as neither of these is crucial to gamers. A purposefully designed computer increases the value-proposition of the end-product.

Hands-on with the Acer ConceptD 5 and its 16:10 Pantone-Validated screen
Source: XDA Developers English
The whole idea of a creator laptop is somewhat new. Up until a few years ago when Acer launched products like its ConceptD brand and others did the same, and when NVIDIA started pushing “Studio laptops”, you’d just buy a gaming laptop if you wanted something for editing video. After all, the internal hardware really isn’t different. You’re still getting that 45W CPU and dedicated graphics. The Acer ConceptD 5 does all of this. I realize that I can’t look at this as a complete picture because this is a pre-production unit, but speaking as someone who has reviewed ConceptD laptops and knows what to expect, along with seeing what’s new here like this beautiful display, the Acer ConceptD 5 is going to be pretty awesome.

Acer ConceptD 5 hands-on review: A Dell XPS 17 killer?
Source: Laptop Mag English
I’m convinced the “D” in ConceptD 5 stands for “Damn, I’m daunting!” The Acer mobile workstation is packed with an eight-core, 16-thread 11th Gen Intel Core H-series CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series GPU, a 3K Pantone-certified panel and a generous variety of ports. if I were a ConceptD 5 rival, I’d be shaking in my boots. However, the numbers don’t lie, and we’d have to test a ConceptD 5 production model to see if it deserves a seat at the “best content-creator laptop” throne. The only aspect of the ConceptD 5 I’m worried about is its thermals (and possibly the battery life); it got toasty performing lightweight processes, so I’m looking forward to the heat test results.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.

88%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
