Is a $500 Gaming Laptop Worth It?

27482 ratings | 1635902 views
Is it possible to get a gaming laptop on a budget? Only one way to find out. Acer Aspire E15: http://amzn.to/1Wz08nQ With dedicated graphics, a Core i5 and a 1080p screen the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-574G-52QU might not have the easiest to remember name but it can actually handle some decent gameplay in games like Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto V, Rocket League and more. My unboxing and review goes over the laptop hardware along with the Windows 10 install and benchmarks of the included Intel Core i5-6200U and Nvidia GT 940M.

Not very portable 53 minutes of gaming?

Why do all of the laptops you advertise, IDK I've only actually checked three of them. $150 to $200 more expensive. I think they intentionally send you laptops that are going to increase in price after you make the video, like after you do your review and either 24 hours after you upload your video or as you upload your video the increase the price after people are already hooked.

57 minute lifespan while under normal load (intense gaming)? Dang, I REALLY need to get a new laptop, my crappy 6-year old non-gaming laptop only scores 30 minutes of life when idling and doing nothing (about 10 minutes if you play a game)

ThelegendofKev (1 month ago)
I like how he's like 500$ is like nothing. When for many people this could be their only choice. And i hate how cocky he is about money.
ThelegendofKev (1 month ago)
Your right
ConnerHasDysentery (1 month ago)
I do have to agree on the fact that Austin is kinda cocky when it comes to money, but I think it comes with the fact that he has money to burn.
ThelegendofKev (1 month ago)
Well i agree with you now
ConnerHasDysentery (1 month ago)
I'm on the PC side but I was seeing what was on the laptop side of the spectrum. But, from what I've seen this is the one of the best prices and power for a laptop. I'm not saying he's not rich. I'm just saying that $500 is not bad for a laptop that can run GTA.
ThelegendofKev (1 month ago)
Well for the average person that may be a lot. And you and me both know that Austin is RICH. And you can still play counter strike and many other games in 1080p 60. Any you can play gta 5 at 720p 30-45. I'm not saying that the laptop is a beast, but honestly if you are on a budget and you want a very good computer i think you should just get a PC because they are WAY cheaper. And you honestly could get a decent laptop from the 400$ - 500$ range.

You could buy a laptop that can barely game and then you could buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 that can game and even more. I would go with the Samsung Tab S3 because all I ever do is game, record YouTube videos, edit, and watch YouTube. Nice videos though Austin! :) :) :)

Here's an idea: Why don't someone make a custom diy 18650 battery setup that can fit inside the empty cd drive? If you solder both the positive and negative correctly, you got an extra battery. I hope that someone makes a video on this soon enough.

I’ve had this laptop for a little over 2 years now and I’m really regretting it. I didn’t know what I was doing, it stutters horribly on games even though he says it’s running at like 60 fps it honestly feels like 20. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS AT ALL FOR ANY GAMERS...
