    I have looked at a lot of different laptops over the past few months to find the one that would be best for me and this one is definitely it! I am a college kid who was looking for a nice portable machine for schoolwork, but also that had the grunt to get some gaming in every now and then. It came down to this one and the Asus G14 with the Nvidia 2060 max q and literally everything I read online said that the G14 was way better and I would be getting ripped off buying this one but there are a few key advantages that this laptop has over the G14: 1) It is MUCH quieter than the g14 in almost every situation. It seems like this laptop was engineered and tuned to have quieter fan noise. It is even pretty quiet while gaming which surprised me! (unless your using turbo mode or something but that is unnecessary IMO) 2) The CPU and GPU temps are very respectable! Most of the time they were both well under 70 degrees Celsius while playing apex legends for about an hour or so! This is much cooler than the temps I was getting with the g14! 3) This laptop chassis stays pretty cool as well! The G14 chassis would sometimes get so hot that it actually kind of started to hurt my fingers. This laptop hasn't gotten anywhere near that hot - of course it still gets warm because of the smaller form factor but it stays comfortable during the few gaming sessions I have had. 4) This is more of a personal preference, but I really like the understated design of this laptop - even more so than the asus g14. That one was bright white and while it still looked cool, was a little too flashy for my taste. 5) This is a small one, but this trackpad is super sweet - it has a really solid click and there is no wobble at all, and tracking is super smooth. I can't say the same about the g14. 6) The keyboard is great! It doesn’t have as much travel distance as the g14 but it still has a satisfying snap to the keys and is much quitter than the keyboard on the g14 as well. It also has pretty good backlighting and 4 zone rgb if you’re into that (I just keep mine defaulted to white). 7) It has a webcam! I am a student, and this was a major pain for me while using the g14 to have to always remember to bring my external webcam along for online classes and other meetings for work. It is 720p but I would say it is pretty good for your average laptop webcam. Of course, the laptop isn't perfect (none are) and it does have some downsides: 1) The four core intel cpu is the main reason everyone says this one is trash compared to amd's 8 core processors but I don't really utilize multicore programs so this doesn't really matter to me much as the single core performance on this thing is great. essentially you are trading four cores (a lot of multicore performance) for a cooler, quieter computer here and that is a welcomed tradeoff, at least for me and my computing situation. If you are using programs that are more multicore dependent (video editing, CAD, modeling etc.) and need that performance, then this laptop probably isn’t the one to get. 2) The speakers on here are mediocre, especially comparing them to the g14's. They aren't awful like some people have said but they basically don't have any bass and don't get terribly loud. 3) battery life seems to be right around 7 hours for normal everyday use which is less than what I was getting with the g14 but it is plenty for what I need. 4) The laptop lid does not have any magnets as far as I can tell to secure it to the body of the laptop when you close it. I know it is kind of a nitpick but the g14 does and I liked that feature. The lid/screen is also a bit more flimsy than the g14. 5) There is a bug that the brightness up button turns the brightness down and visa versa which is a little annoying but I’m sure it will be fixed in a software update. To conclude, I am very pleased with this laptop and think it was well worth the 1300 I payed for it. I hope this review helped inform someone to make a better purchase decision!

    Great gaming / work laptop

    Very happy with this laptop! I was debating between this, the MSI Stealth 15m, and the Asus Zephyrus. The MSI and Asus were not available in the color I wanted with an RTX 3060, so I decided to go for the Acer. I only play one or two games and not super demanding, so they run very smoothly with this machine. It stays pretty cool on default mode (GPU before 65 degrees), and I'm still getting 60 fps easily even in quiet mode which is much quieter than other laptops I've had (MSI and Razer). The metal case construction looks great, and the keyboard/trackpad feel very high quality. Unlike the other reviewer, I did not find the keyboard cramped at all, and I have fairly big hands. Also, the audio doesn't sound "awful" to me, a bit tinny I guess, but who uses the laptop speakers anyway? Pros: Solid build, 144hz screen is smooth like butter, great value for an RTX 3060 Cons: Would have preferred a black screen bezel instead of the grey.

    Powerful & portable

    If you're looking for a small, lightweight, and thin laptop that can be a great work/school machine as well as a good gaming laptop, this one's for you. It could run the majority of recent titles, even at higher graphics settings. Turbo mode is recommended if you're doing this frequently. I haven't used any programs that heavily rely on the CPU yet, but I think it'll do a good job for single-threaded applications since it only has 4 cores. I'll be using this laptop for college, so I upgraded the storage to 1 TB so I won't have to worry about it later or get an external storage device. Upgrading storage is very simple and I assume upgrading the RAM would be too, even though I didn't do so. Just make sure you get an external m.2 NVMe enclosure. I haven't had the chance to fully test the battery life, but if I unplug and use it for a little bit with chrome running a couple of tabs I'll get estimates anywhere between 7-9 hours. The keyboard layout is very comfortable and the trackpad works very well. No need to fully press down on it, a light tap is a click, a double-tap is a click and hold, and a two-finger tap is a right-click (this is probably a common feature but I haven't had a laptop with this yet so I thought it was worth noting). It's on the smaller side if you care about that sort of thing, but I've never really liked using trackpads in general so I use a wireless mouse. Like many of the other reviews state, the brightness buttons are mismatched for some reason, it may or may not be fixed eventually but it's not that hard to get used to. The fans are very quiet with general or non-gaming use, the turbo mode can be loud but I never really care as long as I'm using headphones. Idle temps are usually between 40-50 C, temps while playing a decently demanding game like DOOM Eternal are 70-90 C. Speakers aren't great but, again, I use headphones so I never use them. I've never found any laptop speakers that good in the first place. The port selection is pretty good. Thunderbolt 4 is amazing to have. Wish it had an ethernet built-in but there are plenty of adapters on the market. Believe it or not, it can run vr ONLY if you use a Windows Mixed Reality headset. Since the one I have (Samsung HMD Odyssey+) utilizes HDMI that connects to the GPU (i think) and not displayport or usb-c it can actually work. I was able to get Half-Life: Alyx to run well if that says anything. I don't think this should be a deciding factor and I don't see myself using it anywhere other than my desktop, but it is possible. To finish this off, if you're looking for a powerful laptop that can easily pass as a standard notebook then this is what you want.

    I purchased this laptop after what seemed like months of constant research, and had tried a Dell G3 and Asus G14 as well. I wanted something sleek and lightweight that didn't scream gaming laptop, but could play recently released titles with ease. Acer really knocked it out of the park with this one. I've played Microsoft Flight Simulator, Resident Evil 7 and Dead by Daylight with no hiccups whatsoever. The 144hz screen is great and the colors are bright and crisp. Love the look of it and it comes with a sleeve to fit easily into your bag/backpack. I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking for a system for work/play under 2K that doesn't weigh as much as a boat anchor. Thanks Acer and Best Buy for getting this delivered quickly!

    Good, but needs 32GB Ram and no DVI port

    Bought this a little over 4 months ago. After using it for a while, I can give a few pros and cons. Pros are pretty apparent. Speed, lighting, lightweight, easy to setup, comes preloaded with enough and not too much bloatware. I would give it 5 stars on the pros. Cons, the 144 Hz display only works for the laptop itself. There is no DVI slot for this RTX3060. Crazy. I purchased a stand along cable for the thunderbolt 3 connection to DVI, and connected to a 144 capable monitor, but it uses a lot of RAM. So much that the 16GB isnt enough. I am currently upgrading the ram to 32GB. Because I have to do that much work for the advertised 144Hz capability.. while it DOES* work, but you have to research and figure it all out yourself, I give it 3 stars. Average is 4.

    Great overall laptop. Haven’t had any issues with the laptop and played many AAA games from Hitman 2, GTA 5, Outriders and Shadow of tomb raider and no hasn’t skipped a beat. Only thing I see as a little bit of a concern would be the CPU does get up to about 93 C and the max for it is 100 C but I’ve played over three hours at a time at one point and that’s as hot as it’s got for me. The small and lite make for a great portable and strong laptop.

    Fantastic Little Laptop

    This is a great laptop if you are looking for something small, portable, and powerful. The display has great color and the 144hz refresh rate makes everything buttery smooth. I mostly use mine for media consumption, entertainment, and gaming. The CPU typically sits around 80-82c when gaming in Apex and the GPU hovers around 77c. Very respectable imo especially for such a small laptop. I have not found any issue with the11thgen i7 (4 core 8 thread) being a noticeable bottleneck when gaming and I'm happy with its performance. The main reason I went with the Triton 300 SE over the Asus Dash or Asus G14 is the build quality. Is worth the 5-7fps difference in games for the solid build quality of this laptop. Unlike the other review on here I do not find the keyboard cramped at all, though I use TKL and 60% keyboards so I may be use to it. My only complaint, which can be resolved with an update, is that the screen brightness keys function opposite of what is show. Example: Hit the lower brightness key will brighten the display. As far as who this laptop is for I would call it a gaming ultrabook, yes you can get something more powerful for the same price but for my needs I value what acer has done with this laptop.

    Excellent as an Ultrabook, decent Gaming Laptop

    Unfortunately this gaming laptop comes with an Intel Core i7 11375H, which is a complete bottleneck for the strong graphics card they put in here. I wish they put in a 35W AMD 5000 series cpu so that this machine could have been a productivity powerhouse. However for casual gaming the specs are more than enough. The benefit of getting an Intel system is the Thunderbolt 4 port. In benchmarks provided by other reviewers, this system is only slightly better than the 2020 Asus G14 with the AMD 4000 series and 2060 max-q graphics. However that system lacked a webcam, so as an overall package the Acer Triton 300 SE is a better ultrabook experience that happens to have some gaming capability. The one thing that caught my eye about this machine is the design. With a thin all-metal body this laptop makes a very compact gaming machine. This computer has an Nvidia RTX 3060 (Max-Q) running at 75W. Compare this to Asus TUF Dash F15 that runs at 80-85W. You are trading off gaming performance here for portability. Runs Minecraft for Windows 10 RTX very smoothly out of the box. Display - Perfect. 1080p provides good pixel density and scaling for this size of display. Very responsive 144hz for gaming too. Viewing angles are poor, so don't expect to be sharing a video or movie. Sound - Awful. The audio comes out the bottom. The grills at the top are actually for air ventilation. Speakers sound worse than other 13" ultra portables. Not a deal breaker for me as I use headphones anyways. Fan Noise - The fan noise is average and has a lower sound profile compared to some other thin gaming laptops that have a high pitched fan noise. This makes the fan noise better but still not great. Turbo mode makes the fan noise ridiculous, so I would not recommend using that mode. The PredatorSense software allows for silent mode as well, which is good. Keyboard - It's very cramped. I don't know what is up with Acer computers but they have some poor layout on their smaller notebooks that has a very cramped experience. If you are in the market with a very travel-friendly portable laptop that offers a casual gaming experience, this is a decent option. Another $100-200 off MSRP would make this much easier to recommend.

    Pros: - excellent design. Lools great - can camoflauge the gaming design of the device when working or in class - quiet and didnt overheat - turbo mode whirls up but the noise wasnt as loud as reviewers say they are (other laptops sounded louder wifh their fans) - very portable (comes with a sleeve) - power cord brick is small - thunderbolt 4 port is nice - not difficult to replace the ssd or memory slot - excellent packaging compared to other gaming laptops - can handle just about any game on FHD at 60fps or more (no ray tracing enabled. Some aaa games might not) Those are the Pros. Here are the Cons Cons: - i7 is a quad core and wont handle intense applications as well as other that require more cores. - 8gb memory soldered (this isnt a big deal considering 32gb memory doesnt help the performance of this laptop due to its cpu and low tdp gpu) - ray tracing was ok but many games will not get to 60fps - during cyberpunk car theft scene at the beginning of the game, with ray tracing medium on, i was getting 40-50fps. That is not the part of the game that uses the most resources, but i was somewhat impressed this laptop could get that fps at that level. Minecraft in the other hand (and this was the reason i did not go with this laptop) got to 60fps with no ray tracing on. But with ray tracing, it was at 35-45fps. That is unacceptable for a 30 series card (even if the weakest tdp version). Verdict: If you need a laptop that is very portable, fir everyday use, and are a casual gamer who will not use ray tracing, get this one. Ray tracing gamers and developers, look for something with more tdp and at least a 6 core cpu. One other thing, the price is not worth it for this laptop. Wait until it is on sale if youstill want it.

    Excellent little laptop for any casual gamer. I am loving it so much. It's not the highest end laptop you can buy, but it is an excellent little device that would suit most peoples needs. I have been running Baldur's Gate 3 on it on ultra settings for hours on end without it overheating or having frame rate drops. no real complaints here! pros: -ultra portable and light weight -runs many new games on high/ultra settings without a hitch -gorgeous design for a gaming laptop. wont find much prettier than this -sale price is great (i got it for $1299 for the fathers day sale) -satisfying keyboard and touch pad -fans are fairly quiet and it doesnt get too hot -thunderbolt port!!!! -webcam cons: -battery life is not as good as expected. forget playing a game on high settings without the charger plugged in. but for every day use its an ok battery. -regular price isnt that great -processor is only 4 cores and the rtx 3060 is definitely more of a mid range card, so dont expect this to be a power house -no ethernet port. dont usually need one but i liked to plug my old laptop in to download large programs like... games. however i do get consistently decent download speeds on wifi, better than any other device in the house, so its been no problem so far -screen is thin and flimsy, feels like it could easily break. also has poor viewing angles for sharing or in sunlight

    This is great for the price if you are looking for a smaller screen gaming laptop.

    The most beautiful laptop I've seen. But the screen is the worst. Can't game competitively on it. Horrible ghosting. Also applications seem to freeze randomly. Could have just been my machine.
