Acer is making advantage of the worldwide stage to bring a handful of new and upgraded machines to the market.  For gamers, Acer is updating the Aspire V15 and V17 Nitro Black Edition machines and the Predator 17 X, and introducing the brand new VX 15 midrange gaming laptop, as well as the Predator 21 X as the world's first gaming laptop sporting a curved display.

Aspire VX 15

The VX 15 is just a great deal for a midrange gaming laptop with current-gen components. Acer gave VX 15 body a gaming system look with two huge stylized fan vents at the back to keep this system stylish and cool. More so, the 15.6-inch laptop is available with either a 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti paired with either an Intel Core i5-7300HQ or Core i7-7700HQ processor. The GPUs are not that sufficient for VR, however, provide enough muscle to run a modern game at 60 frames per second at full HD, which just so happens to be the max resolution for the VX 15's IPS display.

Predator 21 X

Weighing in at an impressive 18.76 pounds, Acer has made the most of the enormous size of the 21 X, cramming what feels like every inch of it with some serious firepower like the external design, the 21 X's spec sheet feels built for sheer overkill. A Core i7 Skylake Intel processor that's overclocked up to 4.1 GHz. Two SLI linked GTX 1080 GPUs, 16GB of dedicated onboard VRAM total. USB-C, USB 3.0, 64GB of DDR4 system RAM and Five fans. Five storage slots, an HDMI port, two DisplayPorts, and an SD card slot, three SATA, two PCIe, a Tobii eye-tracking rig, for further immersion and also the show-stopping curved 21-inch screen, noteworthy, the screen also comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology.

The Verdict

The Acer Aspire Vx 15 offers almost everything you are looking for a budget-friendly gaming laptop, boasting top speeds, powerful graphics performance, and great battery life; all wrap-in for a win in both performance and price. On the flipside, if you have more money to spend, with a towering price of $8,999.99 price tag, weight isn't the only place the 21 X beats out on any competitor. But simply, this is the biggest, most powerful, and most expensive gaming laptop ever built. If you're looking for a good battery life which is a rare find on a budget laptop, let alone one made for gaming.
