I own an Acer Aspire E15 (E5-575G-52EL) with an Intel i5-7200U CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX. According to Microsoft, the Intel CPUs of the 7Gen are not supported for Windows 11. A new UEFI BIOS update from Asus on Asus devices, but currently proves something else, as it makes older devices Windows 11 compatible. As my WhyNotWin11 test result shows, everything fits me, except the CPU generation.
Therefore I ask for the following thing:
Proceeds similar to Asus and publishes a UEFI update for it, making the laptop fit for Windows 11.
Otherwise I see myself forced to never buy an Acer device again (and also not a Windows device from another manufacturer and certainly not a Chromebook). Either I buy a MacBook or I install Linux on my Acer Notebook and buy a MacBook as soon as the device stops working. But I can say one thing 100%: I will not buy a new notebook because of Windows 11 and if my Acer notebook is not made fit for Windows 11, no Windows device (neither from Acer nor from another manufacturer) will be in mine in the future.
