Acer Aspire VX 15 (VX5-591G-75RM) is a solid gaming laptop for players out there. Its graphics card, the GTX 1050 Ti, is admittedly not the cream of the crop, but still enough for Full HD gaming and keeping that eye candy high on most games. If you want absolutely the best performance for Triple A games, you should choose another model, but also be prepared to pay hundreds more! Currently, the Acer is a good enough rig for any gamer wanting to spend some quality time with his (or her) digital hobby.

While there are plenty of premium gaming notebooks out there, not everyone can afford them. Now Acer has unveiled a new breed of budget gaming hardware which can still satisfy most gamers out there. This is the Acer Aspire VX5-591G-75RM, and while it seems like a combination of both the Nitro and Predator lineup, it isn’t all that bad. Because the Aspire lineup is not geared towards the thin and light gaming notebook scene, it features a tried and tested design of yesteryear. Starting with the chassis, the Aspire VX5 mainly consists of a plastic based construction with some matte surfaces. Despite it being plastic, it is solid enough for your average user. In terms of its hardware, the Aspire VX5 is packed with an Intel 7th generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics unit. Its budget-oriented nature doesn’t stop it from offering what high end gaming machines have: a user accessible bottom panel which allows for memory and storage upgrades or even replacing the battery, should the need arise. In terms of input devices, the keyboard is not the best out there, but still manages an average key travel distance with a well-defined feedback pressure point. The typing experience is quite solid with no keyboard flex at all. The keyboard also features a red backlight, which helps with typing in dimly-lit spaces. The touchpad is reasonably large with excellent gliding characteristics. This is a button-less touchpad. The haptic feel and the feedback "click" are also quite good, as well as the responsiveness to gestures.
Since this is a budget gaming notebook, it means that some corners will be cut. For example, the display is of the TN variant. While TN panels in general are not all that bad, this TN panel seems to be a very bad compromise. It was only able to score 50% in the sRGB rating, which means the viewing experience will be diminished by washed out colours. However, because everyone has to make do when it comes to budget, this panel gets a free pass. The audio solution on the Acer Aspire VX5 is quite decent, but one shouldn’t expect much from it when compared to much more expensive gaming notebooks. These speakers are not certified by known sound systems such as Bang & Olufsen or even Harmon Kardon. Naturally, when it comes to gaming notebooks, be it budget or premium systems, battery life is going to take a hit due to the high-performance graphics processor. Despite that, the Aspire VX5 still manages an impressive 6 hours of Wi-Fi runtime. Verdict: despite being a budget gaming notebook, it still provides the bare essentials for gamers looking for a budget system, where they can still enjoy games with fluid framerates.
