    Got basically this exact laptop December 2016, and I just wanna say, what a mistake. It's nice and fast but it has fatal design flaws. Those plastic hinges you mentioned are held together with adhesive that wears down over time, especially if you use it in laps like me. Well at this point, that area has gotten worse, and now the back binding on the left hinge side has been separating and the laptop is legitimately lifting out of its frame. Held together with duct tape and even that's failing since the warranty expired a few months before the problems arose and Acer's asking price for a basic repair is $500, which would be even more in my case. I'm surprised looking back I haven't seen anyone with similar horror stories, so maybe mine was just defective, but it's a shame that $1100 is down the drain. That's not the only problem either. The battery died within one month, but repairs were pleasant and free under warranty. The headphone jack has no hold, so 3.5 mm cords will slide in and out like butter, and the laptop frequently stops charging in laps. The other problems started at the end of year one and beginning of year two, but it started falling apart less than a year and a half after purchasing. Anyways, my trust in Acer is shattered and I'm never purchasing another Acer product.

    I have one of these for sale at good price in Toronto if anyone is interested. But mine doesn't have the 1TB harddrive.

    I know this comment section is pretty dead now … but by the love of god how do you change the battery in these things? Mine's dead and I had it open 3 times already: to replace the dead SSD, dead WiFi Antenna and now once to check the battery … I can see and unplug it but it doesn't budge when I try to lift it … yes it was unscrewed there just seems to be a nob from the baseplate that seems to hold it in place…
    If anyone knows a good guide on how to do it let me know … I already checked and iFixit
