In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

We are eager to see whether the cooling will be good enough to enable the full 28W TDP, or if Acer has settled for the 15W one, and a quieter machine. Additionally, you are getting a fairly thin and light notebook, that has some[...]

Pros

  • Thin and light design with decent upgradeability
  • Tige Lake processors combined with decent low-voltage GPU solutions

Cons

  • Not very good build quality
  • Its keyboard is a bit finicky
  • Poor color coverage (LG LP156WFC-SPD5)
  • Underwhelming cooling solution
