The Aspire VX 15 is a budget laptop with all the style and grace of a 90's boom box.

Acer Aspire VX 15 VX5-591G (7300HQ, GTX 1050, Full HD) Laptop Review

 

Inexpensive gamer. Acer's inexpensive gaming notebook displays all the latest computer games smoothly. The device is available for just under £800 (~$1035) in the UK. It is equipped with a Kaby Lake quad-core processor, a GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and both...

matte IPS display ; Full HD resolution ; SSD+HDD ; works quietly

slow card reader ; no maintenance hatch

Acer's entry-level gamer comes at a price of £799.99 (~$1035). In exchange, you get a 15.6-inch notebook with a strong Kaby Lake quad-core processor and a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics processor. The hardware displays all the latest computer games smoothly...

Acer Aspire VX5-591G (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop Review

 

Limited fun. Actually, Acer's new multimedia laptop designed for gaming is convincing in most aspects - only that the conventional hard drive does not really match to the high-performance technology and it really slowed things down in the test. We...

countless versions ; solid casing ; good to very good Wi-Fi speeds ; overall decent screen ; fast 8-thread CPU ; quiet in idle and load

relatively big and heavy ; sluggish card reader ; no maintenance hatch ; battery cannot be removed from the outside ; limited color-space coverage ; no SSD, no SSD, no SSD

Unspectacular but rock-solid - Acer has done a good job with its new VX5-591G-75C4.Except for the fast processor, most components are situated in the upper mid-range and thus correspond to the price of 1000 Euros (~$1061) for the tested version and...

Acer Aspire VX5-591G (VX 15) Notebook Preview

 

More bang for your buck? Acer slips in a completely new device somewhere between Aspire, Nitro, and Predator. The new Aspire VX is equipped with the GTX 1050 Ti GPU as well as the new i7-7700HQ CPU and represents Acer's entry-level gaming model.

Our first impression of the new Acer Aspire VX5-591G aka VX 15 is very promising. Despite its low entry-level price under 1,000 Euros, the notebook offers a well-built and solid chassis with an appealing design. You get all essential ports with a good...

Acer Aspire VX-591G: gamelaptop met GTX 1050 voor 1050 euro

 

Acer biedt met de VX-591G een laptop waarmee je op vrij hoge instellingen soepel recente games kunt draaien. De GTX 1050-gpu doet zijn werk bovendien relatief stil. Hoewel Acer met de laptop duidelijk mikt op gamers, is de laptop ook voor andere...

Ips-paneel met goede kijkhoeken ; Goede accuduur ; Upgradeopties

Kleurweergave niet optimaal afgesteld ; Behuizing openen is lastig

Kort testrapport Acer Aspire VX 15 VX5-591G (7300HQ, GTX 1050, Full HD) Laptop

 

Betaalbare gamer. Acer's betaalbare gaming-notebook kan alle nieuwste computergames vlot aan. Het toestel is verkrijgbaar voor iets minder dan £800 (~$1035) in het Verenigd Koninkrijk en is uitgerust met een Kaby Lake quad-core-processor, een GeForce...

ontspiegeld IPS-scherm ; Full-HD-resolutie ; SSD + HDD ; stil in gebruik

trage kaartlezer ; geen onderhoudsklep

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier. De Aspire heeft geen echt grote tekortkomingen. Voor £800 (~$1035) krijg je een goed uitgerust instapmodel dat een uitstekende introductie biedt in de...

Recensione breve del Portatile Acer Aspire VX 15 VX5-591G (7300HQ, GTX 1050, Full HD)

 

Un gamer economico. Questo economico portatile gaming Acer gestisce tutti i giochi recenti in modo fluido. Il dispositivo cosa poco meno di £800 (~$1035) in UK. Monta un processore Kaby Lake quad-core, una GPU GeForce GTX 1050 e sia un SSD che un HDD.

display matto IPS ; risoluzione Full HD ; SSD+HDD ; silenzioso

card reader lento ; manca una cover di manutenzione

Kort testrapport Acer Aspire VX5-591G (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop

 

Beperkte fun. Acer's nieuwe multimedia-laptop, ontworpen voor gaming, is eigenlijk best overtuigend op de meeste vlakken - alleen de conventionele harde schijf valt wat uit de maat in vergelijking met de performante technologie en vormde een...

erg veel versies ; stevige behuizing ; prima tot uitstekende Wi-Fi-snelheden ; degelijk scherm ; snelle 8-thread-CPU ; stil in inactieve toestand en onder belasting

relatief groot en zwaar ; trage kaartlezer ; geen onderhoudscover ; batterij niet verwijderbaar van buitenkant ; beperkte dekking kleurruimte ; geen SSD (!)

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier. Onspectaculair, maar oerdegelijk - Acer heeft prima werk geleverd met zij nieuwe VX5-591G-75C4.

Recensione breve del Portatile Acer Aspire VX5-591G (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050 Ti)

 

Divertimento limitato. Il nuovo portatile multimedia Acer progettato per il gaming convince per molti aspetti - solo l'hard drive convenzionale non rispecchia le tecnologie high-performance e rallenta il sistema nel test. Raccomandiamo di pensare ad...

molte versioni ; case solido ; velocità Wi-Fi molto buone ; schermo complessivamente decente ; veloce CPU 8-thread ; silenzioso in idle e sotto carico

relativamente pesante e grande ; card reader scomodo ; manca una cover di manutenzione ; la batteria non è removibile dall'esterno ; gamma di colore limitata ; manca un SSD

Non spettacolare ma solido come una roccia - Acer ha fatto nun buon lavoro con il suo nuovo VX5-591G-75C4.Ad eccezione del veloce processore, la maggioranza dei componenti si trova nella fascia medio alta e quindi corrisponde al prezzo di 1000 Euro...

Massimo risultato minimo sforzo? Acer lancia un dispositivo completamente nuovo tra Aspire, Nitro, e Predator. Il nuovo Aspire VX monta una GPU GTX 1050 Ti ed una nuova CPU i7-7700HQ e rappresenta il nuovo modello gaming Acer entry-level.

La nostra prima impressione del nuovo Acer Aspire VX5-591G aka VX 15 è molto promettente. Nonostante il prezzo entry-level sotto i 1.000 Euro, il portatile offre uno chassis solido e ben costruito con un desing attraente. Avrete le porte essenziali e...
