Reviews for the Acer Aspire VX5-591G-5652
It's a shame a better panel isn't available as an option, as the Aspire VX 15 offers a full-size, backlit keyboard, capable everyday performance, a good selection of I/O ports and over eight hours of battery life. Casual gamers may be willing to accept the limitations of the GPU, but for most the middling display will be one compromise too far.

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop is an all-around excellent deal except for one key component: the display. The VX 15's wins here, but not by much. The Dell is horrible off-angle, so you have to find a sweet spot and stay in it and even then it's still washed-out-looking. The Acer's IPS panel is much better for off-angle viewing, though it too looks washed out. It's also not very bright. Still, I'd take this over the Dell. (Note: Some regions use a TN panel on the VX 15 instead of the IPS panel on the US version.)

Currently, there aren’t too many cheaper gaming laptops than Acer Aspire VX 15 VX5-591G-5652. It gives you nice entry-level performance with the Core i5 processor and GeForce GTX 1050. But keep in mind the graphics card here is a budget engine, meaning you have to proceed with low settings if you have a graphics-heavy game at hand. In other regards the notebook is decent, having fast DDR4 memory and a solid-state drive in it. If you are on a tight budget, you would probably find the Acer Aspire VX 15 an adequate gaming laptop.

And if your budget peaks at $799, the Aspire VX 15 seen here gets our unqualified recommendation. It'll breeze through productivity tasks all day and give you solid if not spectacular gaming after hours—easily clearing 30fps, and with some games and settings surpassing the 60fps that players seek from deluxe gaming rigs. It's an easy Editors' Choice in what we earlier called the hottest laptop category.
