Acer continues its gaming push, this time in the entry-level, budget segment. So, no Predator logo emblazoned on its chest, but still a gaming-focused product nonetheless. The new gaming device in question – the Acer Aspire VX 15 gaming notebook.
If you remember, pre-Predator days, Acer had quite a performer in the Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition. Well, think of the VX 15 as a successor to that. It continues to offer a similar preposition – exceptional gaming performance at an accessible price point.
What’s different though, is the VX 15’s purposeful, edgy design, not seen on previous entry-level gaming notebooks. It has an aggressive red chassis with edgy lines throughout.
Under the hood, it doesn’t skimp on hardware – you’ll get a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 HQ processor, 4GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradeable to 32GB), and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU with GDDR5 VRAM. Storage is provided with a conventional 1TB HDD.
Acer’s proud of its dual fan cooling system that ensures the notebook runs cool when playing even the most demanding games.
There’s also high-definition audio with Acer TrueHarmony speakers, and Dolby Audio Premium.
Finally, the VX 15 features a crisp 15.6-inch Full HD IPS screen.
Pricing and availability
The Acer Aspire VX 15 retails for MYR4,399.
Exclusively for Malaysia, 200 units of VX 15s will be bundled with a free Steel Series Rival 100 Special Edition gaming mouse (and a free DOTA 2 in-game item) worth MYR259 each.
The new gaming notebook is available at all authorized Acer resellers nationwide, and major online retailers.
Together with the VX 15, Acer also launched the KG251Q and KG271 gaming monitors as well as the Acer Aspire GX781 desktop PC.
