Reviews for the Acer ConceptD 5 Pro CN517-71P-76BZ
Source: Ultrabook Review
If a wide-gamut UHD screen and Quadro graphics are a must for you, then the Acer ConceptD 5 Pro 17 is worth a good look. It's priced competitively in comparison to other devices with similar specs and the good build quality, fast typing experience, and impeccable display are among its main selling points. At the same time, though, this is not as portable as other options, doesn't run significantly better or cooler, and doesn't offer the business features you'll find with some of the beefier alternatives either, so it might be a hard sell in its professional-targeted niche.

There are obvious, visible seams around the borders of this machine too, and the base edges are uncomfortably sharp. Build quality is inconsistent throughout, in fact. The base section is strong, but the lid is too easy to flex back and forth. A sleeve is advisable to keep this machine safe.

Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
