This means faster load times for applications and operating system. This will help improve performance in gaming also as your load times will decrease with a faster storage.

The laptop weighs 2.3kg which is normal for a gaming laptop. The weight is contributed by the cooling system equipped on the laptop to prevent the laptop from overheating during long hours of gaming. Acer claims a battery life of 10 hours but we seriously doubt its credibility since gaming laptops need a lot of power compared to normal laptops to function.
