Absolutely great for the price. The graphics card is the new range of the 8 series. It has touch screen as well. The only downside is that it isn't full HD.

It competes with the £699 Dell as evens out in the fact that it has a better graphics card but the Acer isn't full HD.


You look at the screen all the time so I'd say it's more important, I think the combination of specs is going to see this struggle to run new games within a year as 8gb is low - Watchdogs needs 6gb and it's been in development ages.

The dell actually has the better graphics card.

Some benchmarks

Watch Dogs- Low Settings (1024x768 resolution)
GT 750m - 57.2fps
GT 840m - 38fps

Titanfall- High Settings (1366x768 resolution)
GT 750m- 38fps
GT 840m- 32fps

The dell is a better offer IMO.

I'd still go with Dell for the sheer fact it's direct from them and for customer service.
