Seems like the RAM is a mystery.

It can support 32GB, they'll give you up to 16GB. Maybe 0? Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

The is a lot of contradiction, TSC does not seem to know anything about laptops. In the title, it says "FHD" while in the description its says 2560x1440

when something seems too good to be true, it isn't true.

especially when it's from TSC.

move on, nothing to see here.

Likely a legit deal https://www.ultrabookreview.com/48602-a ... -an515-57/ (i7 model tested in review)

Not the best gaming laptop considering the 80-100W limit, but seems ok for the price considering its a RTX 3070?

Don't actually recall seeing better gaming laptop deals at this price point so far. Would be hotter if TSC still had their 10% cashback that expired just yesterday or so.

by that link I meant to clarify that TSC hasn't made a mistake on the specs listed on their website - the i5 + 3070 8GB model does exist which is the one sold by tsc.

"Acer sent me a sample of their Nitro 5 AN515-57, the code name for the 2021 model built on Intel Tiger Lake 11th gen Core i7 and i5 hardware."

"As far as the Nitro 5 AN515-57 sub-family goes, I’d expect your best bang for the buck in either the affordable 6Core i5-11400H + RTX 3050Ti configuration, or the mid-tier variant based on the 8Core i7-11800H + RTX 3060."
Scroll down to the gaming benchmarks and you will see "Intel Core i7-11800H
+ RTX 3070 Laptop 80+W"

Hmm yeah that adds doubt here. Hard to tell if they ever did make a i5 + 3070 variant or not. Guess one would need to contact tsc and check.

After some quick searching, most of the AN515-57-XXXX units with a i5-11400H sold at retailers in Canada are paired with a GTX 1650/RTX 3050 in it.. still trying to find a model with a i5-11400H + RTX 3070. Most likely an error or you're taking a gamble on this

Yeah, it could be anything. Maybe even an LG OLED!

The product description must be wrong. You can't get a 3070 and a QHD display in a laptop at this price point.

Tsc.ca is not The Source, right? Likely hard to return stuff if the spec is wrong. Not going to take the risk, it's unlikely 2K screen + 3070 at $800 with original price of $940
