[Shoppers Drug Mart] $499.99 Acer Aspire 3 Ryzen 3 3200U / 8GB RAM / 256 GB SSD / FHD

Similar to the "tinkerer" laptop thread item but you get $149 back in points if you buy it this weekend ($499+taxes - $149 in points):

Again listed as a "Chromebook" but is actually this:

Acer Canada

A315-42-R95E

(AMD)
NX.HH8AA.001

Windows 10 Home in S mode
AMD Ryzen 3 3200U processor Dual-core 2.60 GHz
AMD Radeon™ Vega 3 shared memory
15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) 16:9
8 GB, DDR4 SDRAM
256 GB SSD

No more $200-300 Walmart laptops left :D

Where are you seeing the ad? The flyer isn't showing electronics and neither is the site.

If you prefer intel, the source is having their biggest summer sale event and they have the intel version of this laptop for 399, $100 off their regular price.
Specs seems to be identical otherwise.

Does anyone know the specs on the RAM?
I.e. soldered or upgradeable?

FYI that CPU is considerably slower than the 3200U and the screen isn't 1080p.

Thank you, this is an eye opener and puts it to perspective. I don't need it myself but was going to recommend to a family member for their kid.

Page 10, next to the Kobo ereader on sale for $120

$500, less $150 in points. And peeps here are going gaga for the one at Amazon with only 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD that's selling at its regular price of $449. /smh

It seems that this laptop has been on the SDM flyer a couple of times:
April 2020 - https://www.redflagdeals.com/deal/compu ... hromebook/
June 2020 - https://www.redflagdeals.com/deal/compu ... omebook-1/

This website is trash. If you look at the info, it gives Intel the win based on lower memory latency, but everything else that actually matters crushes it, by 30+%.

IIRC, SDM doesn't accept returns on opened electronics. That might be a no-go for some.

I didn't even look at which one was the winner, just the side by side specs /capabilities and yup Ryzen 3200u is better.

That's a great deal OP with the free point

It's 150$ in point but nobody exchange it's point at normal rate!

So it's even better!
