Acer Aspire VX 15 VX5-591G (7300HQ, GTX 1050, Full HD) Laptop Review

 

Inexpensive gamer. Acer's inexpensive gaming notebook displays all the latest computer games smoothly. The device is available for just under £800 (~$1035) in the UK. It is equipped with a Kaby Lake quad-core processor, a GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and both...

matte IPS display ; Full HD resolution ; SSD+HDD ; works quietly

slow card reader ; no maintenance hatch

Acer Aspire VX5-591G (VX 15) Notebook Preview

 

More bang for your buck? Acer slips in a completely new device somewhere between Aspire, Nitro, and Predator. The new Aspire VX is equipped with the GTX 1050 Ti GPU as well as the new i7-7700HQ CPU and represents Acer's entry-level gaming model.

Our first impression of the new Acer Aspire VX5-591G aka VX 15 is very promising. Despite its low entry-level price under 1,000 Euros, the notebook offers a well-built and solid chassis with an appealing design. You get all essential ports with a good...
