Hands down, the Acer Aspire F 15 is one of the best value notebooks in the lower-end of the market we’ve reviewed so far. It has a lot to offer and just a little trade-offs along the way. It has a nice design – maybe it won’t be suitable for some but it offers a fairly good amount of color palettes to choose from – with great choice of materials, especially the interior, which features brushed aluminum finish. It is accompanied by one of the best in class keyboards and excellently performing big touchpad. Yes, it’s not one of the lightest or the slimmest notebooks on the market, but it’s a little sacrifice for a the decent hardware inside and the robust construction.

NVIDIA GeForce 940M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce 900M series, based on the Maxwell architecture.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
