As for performance, the 7th Gen Intel Core i7-7500U dual-core CPU is among the fastest chips for thin mainstream notebooks and 2-in-1s. It can effortlessly handle all the home and office computing tasks. Additionally, demanding professionals like photographers and videographers might find it to be an ideal solution if they don’t absolutely need even greater performance of the quad-core i7 processors. The Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB graphics enables you to play many games smoothly. It isn’t a high-end gaming solution such as the latest Nvidia GeForce 1050 / 1060/ 1080 series, but it’s certainly way better than the standard Intel HD-series integrated graphics.

Interestingly, Acer has manage to squeeze into this thin laptop a subwoofer bass speaker besides standard stereo speakers. There are also a 720p web camera, 802.11AC Wi-Fi wireless, Bluetooth, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, a new compact USB-C 3.1 port, HDMI video out, a combo mic/headphones port, and an SD memory card reader.

A handy extra perk is notebook’s fingerprint reader. It’s built into the trackpad and enables system logins with a finger swipe, as well as improved security.
