  • Acer TravelMate P4 16 Review (2023)

    Acer TravelMate P4 16 Review (2023)

    We’ve seen some stunning laptops from Acer in recent months. Portable workhorses like the Swift Go 14 and the Swift Go 16 both became our daily drivers. We declared the Swift Edge 16 to be one of the best laptops we’d ever used and the Predator Triton 17X was one of the best all-rounder gaming…


  • Acer Predator Triton 17X review

    Acer Predator Triton 17X review

    We liked the first Acer Triton we saw as it was a perfect sleeper laptop that was good at gaming but could also hide in an office. However, the Acer Predator Triton 17X ups the ante by being the highest spec gaming laptop we’ve ever seen from Acer… while still being able to hide in…


  • Acer Nitro 5 Review (2023 Update)

    Acer Nitro 5 Review (2023 Update)

    Acer has refreshed its super-popular, Nitro 5 budget gaming laptop. The new model has an Nvidia 4000-series RTX 4060 GPU, new cooling and new power brick. As such we’re just going to add the differences (in bold) to our review of the otherwise identical 2022 version. Last year we were impressed by the value of…


  • Acer Aspire Vero Review (13th-Gen Update)

    Acer Aspire Vero Review (13th-Gen Update)

    We first saw the Acer Aspire Vero back in March. It had an 11th-Gen Intel processor and felt like a decent, middle-of-the-road laptop which was great because its existence, first and foremost, represented an exercise in sustainability. Now, here’s the 13th-Gen update. The market has moved forward and so, how does the latest green laptop…


  • Acer Swift Edge 16 review

    Acer Swift Edge 16 review

    The Acer Swift Edge 16 is an important laptop. It’s the first on the market with AMD’s latest Zen-4-architecture-based Ryzen 7 7840U processor which features built-in A.I. processing. Thus far, we’ve only seen demonstrations for unreleased Intel-based laptops that can do this. That comes down to the NPUs (Neural Processing Units) that appear in Intel’s…


  • Acer TravelMate B5 14 review

    Acer TravelMate B5 14 review

    The Acer TravelMate B5 14 is an interesting laptop. It’s designed for school (and the education system in general) and features enhanced robustness and replaceable components to complement this. There are also some neat features that help it fit into a classroom and benefit teachers and, in a country that forces iPads on school kids,…


  • Acer Predator Helios Neo 16 review

    Acer Predator Helios Neo 16 review

    We reviewed a bunch of Acer laptops in recent months, but finding them to buy has been difficult. Now, here’s a brand-new, 13th-Gen gaming laptop from the company’s top-end, Predator line. So, what is the Acer Predator Helios Neo 16, how does it compare to its siblings and should (or even can) you buy one?…


  • Acer Swift Go 16 Review

    Acer Swift Go 16 Review

    We were very impressed with Acer’s recent GO 14, but now here’s the Acer Swift Go 16. We expected it to be the same but two-inches bigger, but it almost feels like a different machine. The GO 14 became our daily driver for some time, can the GO 16 do likewise? Our in-depth review will…


  • Acer Swift Go 14 review

    Acer Swift Go 14 review

    Acer’s Swift Go 14 is an Intel Evo-certified, ultraportable laptop with high-end features and some beefy power under the bonnet. Over the years, we’ve seen impressive laptops in this range and some somewhat-mediocre variants. Our Acer Swift Go 14 review will tell you whether this particular model is marvelous or meh. Related: Check out our…


  • Acer Predator Helios 300 review (12th Gen)

    Acer Predator Helios 300 review (12th Gen)

    We’ve been impressed with Acer’s flagship gaming laptop in the past. It might not be the fastest gaming laptop, but it’s typically offered a great combination of value and performance. It’s no longer as cheap as it used to be, but is the Acer Predator Helios 300 still worth buying? Update: the Helios 300 range…


  • Acer Swift 5 review (2022)

    Acer Swift 5 review (2022)

    We’re seemingly swamped with ultraportable laptops at the moment but each one is impressing us in at least one way. At first glance, the new, Intel Evo-certified, Acer Swift 5 seems to follow suit, thanks to its classy-looking chassis. But, in a crowded market, will this be enough to tempt people to buy it? Acer…


  • Acer Enduro Urban N3 review

    Acer Enduro Urban N3 review

    Hot on the heels of Dell’s Dark Knight-like Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme laptop is a lesser, but much-more-accessible, rugged offering: the Acer Enduro Urban N3. It’s definitely a bit less Batman and more like Robin, but which Robin will that be – leader of the Teen Titans? Or Burt Ward wearing tights? Specifications 14-inch, glossy,…


  • Acer TravelMate Spin P414RN-51 review

    Acer TravelMate Spin P414RN-51 review

    The Acer TravelMate Spin is a business, convertible ultraportable that aims to do it all in a stylish and robust manner. In a crowded market, where should it be on your list? Key Specs of the Acer TravelMate Spin P414RN-51 Display: 14-inch, glossy, 60Hz, 1920 x 1080, touchscreen, IPSProcessor: 2.4-4.2GHz Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPUMemory: 8GB…


  • Acer ConceptD 3 Ezel review

    Acer ConceptD 3 Ezel review

    The Acer ConceptD 3 Ezel is a Creator-designated workstation with a flip-top touchscreen. Inside it uses relatively old technology, but is it still a good buy? Key Specs of the Acer ConceptD 3 Ezel 14-inch, matte, 60Hz, 1920 x 1080, IPS display; 2.6-5GHz Intel Core i7-10750H CPU; 16GB RAM; 512GB HDD; Nvidia Quadro T1000 graphics;…


  • Acer Aspire Vero review (11th Gen)

    Acer Aspire Vero review (11th Gen)

    We’re big fans of schemes that address e-waste. So far it’s been Australia’s own Venom computers who have led the charge – offering 7-year warranties with a guaranteed $500 buy-back in order to recycle and reuse parts. Now here’s Acer with a different take. The Acer Aspire Vero is constructed from 30 per cent PCR,…


  • Acer Swift X review

    Acer Swift X review

    The Acer Swift X is not your typical high performance laptop, but compromise is necessary if you want a budget ultraportable that plays games. How does it fare? Update: Check out the new Acer Swift 5 review. Acer Swift X specs 14-inch, matte, 1920 x 1080, non-touchscreen 60Hz, LCD; 2.1-4GHz AMD Ryzen 5 Mobile 5500U processor; 8GB RAM; 512GB NVMe HDD; Nvidia…


  • Acer Predator Helios 300 review (11th Gen)

    Acer Predator Helios 300 review (11th Gen)

    We reviewed the 10th Gen Acer Predator Helios 300 a few months ago and noted that while it seemed under-powered for a company’s flagship gaming laptop, it still had it where it counted and represented good value for a mid-range machine. That all said, our main gripe was that it was annoyingly noisy. Now the…


  • Acer Nitro 5 review (2021)

    Acer Nitro 5 review (2021)

    If you sit the Acer Nitro 5 next to its top-end Predator Helios 300 sibling you might wonder what the difference is. Both use the same black chassis, screen, keyboard, trackpad and both have similar hardware on the inside. But the Nitro is significantly cheaper than the already, low-price-tag-wielding Predator. What gives? Update: Check out…


  • Acer Predator Helios 300 review (10th Gen)

    Acer Predator Helios 300 review (10th Gen)

    The Acer Predator Helios 300 is Acer’s top-end gaming laptop but its pricing is more mid-range in the high performance laptop market. It begs the question, is it a gaming bargain or not as high-performing as it should be?
