The laptop will cost the same as a similarly-configured MSI GS66 while undercutting the Razer Blade 15 by $200. However, it will come with a slower 6-core Core i7-10750H CPU compared to the 8-core Core i7-10875H in the Razer.

Acer's super-thin 15.6-inch gaming laptop will be making its way to North America starting early July for a high price of $2800 USD. The system is notable for being one of the few in its size class with a 300 Hz 1080p display compared to "only" 144 Hz or 240 Hz on most other alternatives.

Internally, the Acer laptop will come with a sizable 84 Wh battery and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, but we wouldn't be surprised if it ran slower than some laptops with regular non-Super GPUs. Both G-Sync and Optimus are supported which is uncommon on many gaming laptops. Overall dimensions are smaller than the Dell Alienware m15 R2 while being larger than both the MSI GS66 and Razer Blade 15.

The main drawbacks to the system are its high fan noise when gaming, very warm surface temperatures, and relatively difficult serviceability.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
