Is a $500 Gaming Laptop Worth It?

27949 ratings | 1676352 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.

Considering the fact that it only has a single fan that cools both the CPU and the GPU ... Wouldn't this be prone to overheating considering it's intended use.?

You realize that this laptop is $650 right? Not $500
AFTERTHEBLOCK (1 month ago)
Elijah Law-Burns but you realize it was 500$ when the video was posted
Elijah Law-Burns (1 month ago)
well, the prices after 2 years shouldn't go up $150, if the production of them slowed, then that would be understandable, but, prices don't just shoot up, unless the sellers saw the video and thought that some of the viewers would buy it after, so they would jack the price, and get more profit off the buyers.

You should do an ultimate version, where you put an optical drive adapter, overkilled ram, and 8th gen processor, etc.

Humans have gigabytes too, because when we eat too much the storage space gets full and if we don't clean the junk or eat a lot of malware the storage will explode and you will have eternal shutdown

You could spend a $100 more and get the Acer Aspire 5 which has far better specs than it like 8th gen i5, mx 150 and pre-installed ssd with ample space for upgrades like ram and 2.5inch drive is empty

RyanWake bradtelle (3 months ago)
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.

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.
Mint (4 months ago)
Your right
ConnerHasDysentery (4 months 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.
Mint (4 months ago)
Well i agree with you now
ConnerHasDysentery (4 months 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 $500 is not bad for a laptop that can run GTA.
Mint (4 months ago)
Well for the average person that may be a lot. And you and me both know that Austin is RICH. And you can still play counter strike and many other games in 1080p 60. Any you can play gta 5 at 720p 30-45. I'm not saying that the laptop is a beast, but honestly if you are on a budget and you want a very good computer i think you should just get a PC because they are WAY cheaper. And you honestly could get a decent laptop from the 400$ - 500$ range.
