I think this is a good price for decent 14" laptop with a FHD which i think is IPS.

Intel Core i3 7100u dual core processor (7th Gen), 8gb ram and 128 ssd. Could be a bigger drive but it's perfect for my girlfriend and ordered yesterday. Decent chassis, back lit keyboard and looks nice.

the only complaints i've really seen is the screen is maybe a little dim for outside use but who does that anyway?

very similar compared to the HP pavilion from JL
although the HP does have a IPS screen full HD, 7200U CPU and name brand audio at 500 though. so twenty quid more.
Nice. I have the i5 good and it's a great little laptop. Super fast. Got mine for £370 second hand used twice.
Same price at Amazon if that helps anyone. I'm not voting on this; you can get a 256GB SSD laptop for about £330 but this Full HD Acer may be preferable to some people.

This one has a USB-C port (which could be used with something like this as a cheap docking station), a fingerprint sensor and a metal chassis.

I think I'd still prefer the HP one, but both are very decent. Voted hot.
The hp one weighs more. Might be a consideration for some
I have this laptop, got this from very and used staff discount to make £400, fast boot up, plays dota 2 well, all metal. Only problem was CPU fan was making a noise but Acer sorted thus out. Did post a YouTube video of the noise to help others , must have had a bad batch of CPU fans. Using it now and is really quiet and power efficient
Amazing this deal got any heat. I posted up same laptop but for £70 cheaper X) Click. I guess the sheep phenomenon occurred on my deal.

Put your volume up, is sounded like a clicking, metallic noise, may had been the fan bearing. Me and my friend has the same problem and sent it back for repairs for free. Seems like a common issue.
Nearly £500 for an i3?!

Missing the point altogether?

It's early £500 because you pay for a thin 14" (generally 13.3" and 14" laptops are more expensive than the run of the mill 15.6") with a FullHD screen, metal body and an SSD drive. It has a few other titbits mentioned already (usb-c port, lighted keyboard, fingerprint scan, etc) that may or not be useful to you, but do justify the extra price.

If all you care about in a laptop is the headline cpu and price then this one is definitely not for you.

you must be very popular to have that many fans.......
I managed to get a good deal on one of these from Ebay, and up to now I've been really impressed. I can't say I've really noticed the fan being noisy, but the most I usually do with mine is web browsing albeit with lots of windows open.
