The Acer Aspire VX5-591G-5652 is a bestselling 15.6-inch gaming laptop that has been praised for its seventh generation i5 processor, attractive price, aggressive design, dedicated NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics and for its next generation USB 3.1 Type-C port. However, the Acer Aspire VX5-591G-5652 is only shipped with a 256GB M.2 solid state drive which is too small for most modern games. There is space for a 2.5-inch storage drive, however you will have to purchase the upgrade kit separately as Acer does not include the bracket, screws and cables with this laptop.

Bottom Line

The Acer Aspire VX5-591G-5652 offers great hardware for a lower price than Acer's high-end Predator range, however the small SSD will fill up extremely fast for those with larger game collections.

    Combined with a quad-core processor and a distinctive design, the VX 15 is a tempting proposition. But its lacklustre screen and below-average battery life limit its overall appeal, especially in such a competitive market.
