Deal | Acer Aspire 7 gaming laptop with Core i7, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics, and 128 GB SSD is only $699 right now
The arrival of mobile Intel 9th gen CPUs and Nvidia GTX Turing GPUs means laptops equipped with last generation processors can start hitting rock bottom prices. NeweggFlash is currently selling the Acer Aspire 7 sporting an Intel 8th gen Core i7-8750H CPU and GTX 1050 Ti Pascal GPU for just under $700 after applying the code promo code 'NEFPCA3'. Newegg will even throw in a free Acer Predator mousepad to sweeten the two-day-only limited deal.
For reference, gaming laptops sporting GTX 1050 Ti graphics initially retailed for about $1000 to $1200 USD when they launched early last year and so the $700 asking price makes this Acer fairly attractive. Performance comes close to the Turing-based GTX 1650 when playing DX11 titles, but the gap widens in favor of Turing when playing newer DX11 titles. Nonetheless, the GTX 1050 Ti is powerful enough to play even the latest games at native 1080p with decent graphical settings. We recommend checking out our full review on the Acer Aspire 7 for more details on its performance.
