Acer has always had an affinity towards the gaming community which can be seen with their Predator range of products. Right from attention-grabbing monitors to laptops, they have always been one step higher than other brands in the market.
VX 15 is cool model name and yea it would be good deal for an entry-level gaming laptop. It stands in toes with Dell Inspiron 15 7000 which is another good laptop which we will review later.
This laptop is equipped with a GTX 1050 or 1050Ti 4GB NVidia GeForce card for its graphic performance. Powered by an Intel core i5 or i7 processor(7300HQ/7700HQ) clocked at 2.5GHz processor would pack a punch when paired with the GPU. It is equipped with a 15.6 inch full HD IPS display screen
Acer has given this laptop a “Gaming system” design based on it predecessor with their signature two large fan vents.
Like most gaming laptops, the Acer Aspire VX 15 is all-plastic, using colour and contours to give the design an edge, rather than aluminium. The lid has a brushed aluminium effect, with a couple of bright red streaks for a bolder look, but it’s all various kinds of plastic.
More expensive gaming laptops tend to pack in more on-body LEDs to make them stand out, but flashing lights aside this model looks at home next to them.
Acer continues its current trend of offering some of the most consistent build quality among laptop-makers too, with very little flex to any part of the Acer Aspire VX 15 (the lid plastic flexes a little). Most notably, the plastic keyboard surround plate is rock-solid.
The Acer aspire is packed with two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port and a newer USB-C connector. With one HDMI output and No mini Display port & optical drive was the sacrifice made for this ultimately still a ‘Value’ System.
Gaming portable PCs tragically tend to support frame over capacity, and on account of the Aspire VX 15, the precise edges result in huge show bezels that stand out like a sore thumb. An unavoidable exchange off while setting a rectangular screen in an octagonal cover, and the final product is that the 1080p show shows up predominated by whatever remains of the machine. The 15.6in panel on offer here is a frail point.
