Will you review this laptop? How will be the performance of this one?
How the processor will cope up in reallife situations?
This one most probably not, as Acer is not going to contact me for review.
I’m hoping to get some Chinese hardware based on Apollo Lake though, and maybe one of them will be a laptop.
Performance is going to be really bad as it is an Atom chip, not a Core based one.
It will be very fast actually.
