I think you could've gone for a newer gen i7 with GTX 1060 6gb built in. Price should be similar.... and from googling, performance is similar too.

Example is this https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/store/d ... verviewtab

was cheaper on boxing day. $1200ish WITH vr headset that you can sell for $200... :) But sinice you bought it already, just enjoy it! Wasn't too bad of a deal

I would definitely take the Acer with the older 980m GPU even if its similar in benchmark with the 1060. you get bigger ssd, more ram, etc with the acer for the same $.
