    Yep. That's about $8000 worth of battery right there, if my rudimentary math still holds.

    I was taking care of a solar house for a couple of weeks some years back now. They had gone solar out of rational necessity; they'd built far back from the main road, and when it came time to hook up electrical, the power company quoted them, "You'll need a half dozen hydro poles, $1000 each, plus hook up fees. $8,000 total."

    And the family building it thought, "How much does $8000 buy in terms of solar?"

    Bam. Solar house. They haven't looked back, and it defined much of their thinking and life after that. It's a super neat house!

    Yeah, I've always wondered how things would've turned out for my uncle if he'd had access to such technology --- he had a wonderfully remote home near a mountaintop, but needed power for his shop and his house, so paid to have power run up the mountain --- immediately after that all the property below his home got developed as folks were able to tap into the power line he'd paid for.

    Is Acer hiding the switch 7 from reviewers. Where is it?

    There are 13 units on Amazon. Guess no one is buying. There are no reviews either. Is Acer hiding the 7? They should be flogging the 7 as their flagship product.

    Detatchable 2in1 notebook like surface
    There is i7 8550. (High spec)
    acer's flagship laptop

    it has emr pen.(no charge)
    in case of surface- you should buy the pen and keyboard separately
    but this tablet Comes with a keyboard and pen.
    Pen performance is very good. Enough to draw a professional webtoon

    Auto stand function is good.
    I felt uncomfortable to have to unfold manually even though it was a thousands-dollar laptop.
    But it is not very good if the floor is not hard.

    With the MX150
    Video editing is great.
    You can enjoy a lot of games.
    (except high-performance games like doom and battleground)

    * cooling system explain *
    no noise. no fan sound.
    but back cover is so hot
    I doubt if the cooling is working properly.

    display is good
    2256 * 1504
    The width is slightly shorter.

    * Dolby audio *
    I wonder how these sounds come from such a small place.
    Really good
    camera in front and rear
    The finger sensor is also good.

    * usb specs explain *
    it has usb 3.0, usb c (thunderbolt 3), micro sd slot

    There are two models, i7 and i5.
    i7 = 1760 $
    i5 = 1376 $

    Battery time is 9 ~ 10hour (probably not for high performance such as video editing)
    you can use almost all day long

    /* maybe battery is not poor
