Is a $500 Gaming Laptop Worth It?

26954 ratings | 1594603 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.

No it's not worth it because it isn't anything revolutionary.

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...

I am the king of shitty laptops. Any game runs on my computer... at LESS than a frame per second. That’s right. It takes more than a second to run A SINGLE FRAME. It lags out saving word documents. Half the time, it has 10% battery cuz of randomly turning on for “updates.” All y’all out there whining about your shit laptops. Come to me. I feel, I know, I am your pain.

Compared to my current “laptop,” this thing looks like a God. My PC is the equivalent of a rock with an LCD screen and some keys. I hope that I can get this soon to replace my impromptu computer.

I've had this laptop for about a year now, it's flawless and I love it so much. I'd recommend this to anyone who's looking for moderate gaming/heavy task managing 👌🏻

I got this for college and casual PC gaming along with organization for dungeons and dragons. Just clean up bloatware when you get it, and after set up it'll tackle just about anything you need it to. However if you're looking for something high end to play next gen AAA games on this is not the machine for you.

I bought a 500$ same look as this but it's a F15 not e15 but mine is better but has only 1366x768 res with same graphics card and has i7 and runs GTA v on very high at 70 fps pretty much I would recommend the f15 than the e15
