Bottom Line

The Acer Aspire VX5-591G-75RM offers a decent gaming experience for its price, however the 256GB SSD is slightly too small for most gamers and adding a second drive will require an upgrade kit from Acer.


The Acer Aspire VX5-591G-75RM is a bestselling gaming laptop that has been praised for its seventh generation i7 processor, dedicated NVIDIA graphics, next generation USB 3.1 Type-C port and for its aggressive gaming design. While the processor and the graphics card will run any modern gaming title, the Acer Aspire VX5-591G-75RM only features a 256GB SSD which is far too small for the avid gamer with larger Origin or Steam collections. There is space for a 2.5-inch hard drive, however you will have to purchase the kit separately as it does not come with the required bracket, cables or screws.

    A solid gaming laptop let down by a poor-quality screen.

    Sure, it’s inexpensive compared to most gaming laptops, but you would be much better off spending a little more to buy the Dell Inspiron 15.
