    That 3 cell battery might be less than they're estimating. They should have gone with 6 cell battery to really get that 4 hrs estimate. 4K pushing now with ACER. They make some excellent computer gear. But to keep the cost under 2K they use a moderate 4K tech in the top end laptop.

    For a company that's 'failing' they are sure showing good profit and doing pretty well for themselves. If that's your idea of failure then success to you must be most other peoples impression of failure.

    That sounds like an opinion not fact...Acer products have been fine throughout the years with a few hiccups here and there just like every other company in the realm of laptops.

    4k on a GTX 860m...I do not see that going over to well...

    Can't even see the 2k display. Most seniors at the ymca I talk to can't either, which is why seniors don't do computers.

    Yep I do. In fact I have a cheapo Acer Aspire laptop at the moment which is about 2 years old and I've never had any trouble with it. It'll easily last another 2 years.
