Newegg via Ebay offers Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G-792U Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 472 for $649.99 (orig. $999) with free shipping.
The Acer Aspire V Nitro is a great laptop that doesn't break the bank that is fast enough for most tasks and good for gaming as well. Keyboard is good (not great) but does the job. Touch pad is so-so, works but I use a mouse honestly. The screen is okay for mobile use but in all honesty a little dark compared to my desktop monitor that I connected it to to compare the two. The upgrade process is a pain as one has to unscrew nine screws to get to the underside then pop up the keyboard area to get to the opponents and that's the easy part. Hard drive installation is easy and the SSD m.2 2088 drive is easy to deal with. Only real problem is the 2x3 mm screw required to set the SSD in place. It is upgrading the memory that is the problem in that the motherboard itself need to be unscrewed along with a number of connections around the board to flip it and reach the memory slots. I will say that the power and the price are the real selling points to this laptop but is 8 gigs are not enough then perhaps something more pricey may be up your ally. I've ha the laptop for a month now and have gamed and found the power and speed useful in my school work and gaming habits. Runs Dying Light and Arma 3 on high setting with a few tweaks on the option menus. Would recommend to others with caution if one needs a quick and easy upgrade of components otherwise they may need to look some place else.
