Though I essentially think of earned PC points as grocery money. So I'd prefer to think of it as spending:
$35.30 in groceries ($140 redeemed - $104.70 earned)

I haven't used it, so this is just what I've gotten from the box, and this thread so far:

Used for a few hours and decided that I will keep the thinkpad P1 from the other deal (that comes with basically same quadro 2000 though more expensive), instead of keeping both laptops.
My local shoppers does not accept return once opened. If any one wants, please pm me to pick up in Markham

Hey I was having this issue on Thursday when I picked up and unboxed the laptop. I also popped in an extra stick of RAM and the nvme SSD that day, so I guess there is extra heat being generated. I wasn't even doing any gaming, and I could feel the keyboard get very hot. I was using the laptop at my wooden kitchen table and a bit on my glass coffee table when the fans were constantly revving high.

Your Acer should be part of the cost, so to speaksparhawk909 wrote: ↑Nov 28th, 2018 8:12 pmI just sold my Y520 for $750. I replaced the 1 TB 5400 RPM hard drive with the Crucial MX300 750 GB SSD from Amazon 2016 and sold the 1 TB for an additional $20. AC2014 and GBUalways, I noticed the fan run a little more often when I was using the mechanical hard drive. Not as much when I swapped it with the SSD. I expect the same on the Y530 as I just opened it and the first thing I noticed was the fan revving a bit later after installing a few programs. Yes I also do notice the keyboard has a higher ambient temperature than the Y520.
So here's the sequence of events for reference for those looking to unload their Y520: YMMV on return as my Acer was 7 years old.
Purchase of Y520
- $509.11 - 500000 points
+ 119700 points
+ $20 sale of 1 TB 5400 RPM hard drive
+ $250 sale of previous laptop (Acer 3830TG i7-2620M, 16 GB ram, 500 GB SSD)
+ $750 sale of Y520
Purchase of Y530
- $559.11 - 300000 points
+ 134700 points
- $48.22 - 545600 points

Nope. I ran a quick stress test and the max temp. I get is 75C and no throttling. I undervolted -0.1V and it maxed at 70-72C. I'm pretty impressed. Again, this was just a quick test. The fan runs loud when loaded, but I think that's pretty normal on a gaming laptop.
