BLACK FRIDAY ACER LAPTOP BUYING GUIDE
On Black Friday you can easily spend thousands on a gaming laptop, but Acer Aspire VX-15 is one of the nicest budget gamers we have seen this year. A starting price of £800. It comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX, 1050 GPU and intel core i5 processor, 8 gigs of memory and a 256 gig SSD. If the memory and storage sound too small, you can open it up and add more of both on your own. Also expect to spend some time uninstalling many of its preloaded apps. Otherwise the configuration is good enough to play demanding modern games at medium settings, but older games do just fine at higher settings at the screens full HD resolution. The red backlit keyboard is comfortable, with some soft bounce to it and some extra glow for your WASD keys. If you would rather hook up your own peripherals, there is room for them, with a full-size HDMI and USB type-c and more. It is all wrapped up in a body that looks like a gaming system, but one that’s not so over the top. What is nice, is none of it feels like a compromise at its price. Even its speakers sound surprisingly good for the money and battery life topped out at 6 hours on our video streaming test. Acer does offer several configurations: if you want more memory or storage or a slightly better processor or graphics. But for under £1000 gaming laptop, it deserves a spot on your list.
