Hey Magel, does this ACER review even count?!

Written by Jayvee Fernandez

So about two weeks ago I was like:

And then Magel of Strategic Edge (Intel’s PR) put me first on the list for a really big ass ACER gaming laptop. INTEL Core i7. Lots of RAM. Radeon card. All that. Oh and it was so big, that, if you knew Magel personally, the box covered half her body. Imagine her carrying that. Oh, here’s her Facebook for reference.

Being first on the list has its perks.

She’s referring to me and Rico (who just picked up the laptop today).

You know what, reviewing really nice products makes you forget your JOB. The laptop arrived about the same time Civilization V for the PC came out (SEE ABOVE PHOTO). I had just bought the game as stock had just arrived in Datablitz (thanks for the heads up, Ms. Orpha) and met up with her to pick up the unit. Henceforth, I have been unavailable for everything else. Not even for an ACER event.

Wait I was there for WordCamp. Here’s a photo of Matt Mullenweg inside my car.

Hence we are confronted with a moral conundrum: Does missing an event because your were testing their product count as positive product engagement?! We will never know because everyone would rather discuss the RH Bill.

DUDE IT’S HUGE. I’m not kidding. That’s my 13 inch MacBook Pro on top of it.

And there are the specs. It’s OK! Comes with Blu-ray! Lots of gaming! Lots of power!

OK on a more serious note, I must say that I came to an epiphany after getting to play with this laptop. Since it’s huge, it comes with built in arm rests and that matters a LOT for someone who uses the computer everyday. You see, lately I’ve been experiencing numbness in my left pinky due to Guyon’s Canal and lo and behold, working with a big laptop makes working gaming less painful. Serious!

The price of your health: PHP 115,000.00

OK at least we learned something today! I love you, ACER! I love you, INTEL!
