    I thought it was a sniper suitcase just like Agent 47 has.

    With only three hundred units, I doubt Acer will order any soft cases. I'm LAN partying this weekend, so trial by fire.

    such a shame, had they gone socket hardware this would be less obsolete. 6 cores cpu this yr, 8 cores cpu 2nd half of next year, this laptop stuck at 4 cores forever along with a dead end mobo.

    it'll be nice if acer decided to update the insides of this machine with a new mobo, heatsink redesign and all socketed hardware, thats a buy for me if it happens, big IF.

    thats correct, and thats the fault and greed on intel's part. however it doesnt change fact that acer can easily go MXM with a possible upgrade to next gen GPU, offer more storage bay in that giant chassis and using a desktop CPU and still have room to cool it, while charging the same amount, even if cost more it is justified with 2-3x cpu performance.

    now we know this is acer's first time and some of us were really hoping they'll take feedback and make the next laptop real high end. so we did go over some details with their marketing team but doesnt look like they will listen so there we have it, comes down to onetime thing as an advertisement for their company.

    looks like acer aint gonna prolong the life of 21x simply it cost too much to manufacturer. im sure they could but finding sales again might be tough. this laptop forever stuck with 4c BGA unless acer decide to renew it with 6c BGA, then desktop LGA getting 8 cores soon.. forever lag behind.

    You guys know where one can find one of these now? Seems that they're all gone and no one sells them anymore even though unbox therapy did a review 6-7 months ago.

    kinda pointless at this point, its stuck with a 4 core CPU and a GPU that can't be upgraded. we are getting zen2 in a few months which can go up to 16 cores. im most likely going to go thread ripper 32 cores this year so laptop is done business for me.
