Acer Aspire VX 15 (VX5-591G-5652) Gaming Laptop General Review

Acer Aspire VX 15 (VX5-591G-5652) is a 15.6 Inch budget-friendly gaming laptop with enough RAM, storage, latest processor and powerful GPU. Lets see this laptop's general review.

Design of this laptop is very different from other gaming laptops. It looks big and weighs around 5.5 pounds. So, this laptop is not suitable for carrying around. You can use this laptop for home use, as a replacement for a desktop. Features Iron-Red backlit keyboard, dual-fan cooling system, Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby Audio Premium Sound system for better gaming experience.

15.6 Inch Full HD display is the best to get for the price. With that Full HD display, you can enjoy Acer Display technologies for better brightness and color reproduction. And coming to its main specs, this model is powered by 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor and comes with 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 256 GB SSD storage and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM.

Intel Core i5-7300HQ is a quad-core processor which is slightly lower in performance than Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor. This processor can handle demanding applications and suitable for moderate usage. For gaming, this is enough for moderate gaming. 8 GB DDR4 RAM is minimum to get and you can expand it up to 32 GB. 256 GB SSD storage is low even for moderate gamers. At least 512 GB SSD storage is recommended for gaming laptops. But considering this laptop's price and other specs, 256 GB is acceptable.
