This laptop can be pushed pretty far although it has a dual core processor and you can see how its runs from The Witcher 3 gameplay. It can manage light photo and video editing. An HQ processor is better for video editing but this laptop should do the trick to get you through college

Looking for multiple options to look through for digital art and some side gaming

Posted on: July 19, 2017 by Michiganders

At around $600 you’ll be looking at a gtx 940MX gpu. For $580, the Acer Aspire E 15 would be the best option. It has an Intel Kaby Lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram,a 256GB SSD, and that GTX 940MX dedicated GPU. The display is a 15.6″ 1080p (TN), weighing 5.3 lbs, with an impressive 12 hr advertised battery. This is a very popular laptop on amazon, and at this budget is a really solid option. You could also consider a refurbished model for $440 if you’re interested in budgeting.

Also consider a Lenovo Ideapad 510 for $572 which also has a GTX 940MX graphics card and a 1TB HDD if you need more storage. It doesn’t have an SSD though. Also the Asus P2540 for $500 if you don’t think a graphics card is necessary.

If you’re looking for more suggestions or are interested in getting a better idea of options on the market, I suggest taking a look at my Laptop Suggestion Guide. Best of luck!

Allow me to quote my own reddit list about best laptops, and recommend **The Acer Aspire E 15**

* 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD both are somewhat standards in 600 range so finding them on 500~ range is somewhat a catch.

* 940MX for your gaming.

* Advertised battery life of up to 12-hours, Backlit Keyboard.

Here is a little in depth review of it :

* Same with the cheaper Acer, it is made from plastic, but it feels sturdy, screen comes with anti glare finish so it will work well outside.

* Battery life is great about 5-8 hours of general usage.
* Backlit keyboard, quite and comfortable, Trackpad have been getting some mixed reviews, I think it is a software issue, or maybe it is because some people are not used to trackpads.

* Speakers are good, above average for laptops in this range.

* Very thin, very quiet (can barely hear the fans), It has room for more ram as well as more SSD, Finger print magnet.

U.S. Looking for a laptop less than $800 good for college and gaming

Posted on: June 19, 2017 by Michiganders

Just so you know, basically no laptop on the market will get a 20 hour battery. Especially if you’re looking for something to play games and run engineering software, you’ll be lucky to find something that will last 6 or 7 hours of light use.

If you want to budget, maybe look into the Acer Aspire 15 for $580. It has an advertised battery life of 12 hours (because it’s specs aren’t as good). It would still work fine for your use, but may be on its last leg after 4 years. It comes with a kaby lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram, 256gb SSD and a GTX 940MX dGPU. It has a 1080p display, and an okay build quality. It can run light and medium games pretty well but will struggle with some more graphic intensive gaming.

Otherwise, maybe look into the Dell Inspiron 7567 for around $800. It meets your needs a bit more with better specs while still maintaining an okay battery. It has a quad core kaby lake processor, 8gb of ram, 256gb SSD and a GTX 1050 dGPU. The 1050 dGPU will work fine for pretty much all games on the market but incredibly graphic intense ones will have to have their settings turned down quite a bit. It has a 10 hour advertised battery life from Dell, a 1080p display, and a pretty good battery life. It weighs in at 5.8 lbs though.

I assume you are referring to this configuration ?? this should not have the slow response you are asking about since it comes with SSD which is much faster than the HDD on the first acer, and has a more powerful GPU (940MX) here is how it will look on 940MX so I would say yeah, it is worth it, but only if you can afford it.

Hello,

I think your best option by far would be the Acer Aspire E15 (580$)

* 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7200U Processor (Up to 3.1GHz)
* 15.6″ Full HD Widescreen Comfy View LED-backlit Display supporting Acer Color Blast technology
* NVIDIA GeForce 940MX with 2GB of GDDR5 Video Memory

It’s a solid choice for this budget that has a dedicated GPU which is nice and will be able to run all you mentioned games at decent framerates (LOL at high settings, Overwatch on medium settings).

Hope that’ll help!

I think that the Acer Aspire E15 for $580 does what you need and is well within your budget. It has an i5 7200 processor, a GTX 940MX graphics card, 8gb of ram, and a 256 GB SSD. It’s 15.6″ 1080p (TN) with a 12 hour battery life, and with backlit keys. Really good value for the price.

If you wanted to push your budget a bit, the Lonovo Ideapad 510 for $730 would also be a good fit for you. This has a full HD IPS display, 12 Gb of ram, a Kaby lake i7 processor, 1TB HDD, and a GTX 940MX dGPU. While this is more pricey, it’s definitely more powerful.

For more suggestions or a better idea of what to look for, maybe look through my comprehensive list here.

Posted on: June 16, 2017 by Michiganders

If you’re looking for best bang for you buck, maybe look into something like the Acer E15 for $580. It has pretty good value and will meet your needs well. It comes with a kaby lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram, 256gb SSD and a GTX 940MX dGPU. The 940MX will work well for you and easily allow you to play light games and most shooters. It also has a 12 hour advertised battery life, a backlit keyboard, and a pretty solid build quality. Unfortunately there is no touch screen though.

For something a bit more portable with good bang for your buck, also look at something like the HP Envy 13 for $680. It has similar specs with a kaby lake i5, 8gb of ram, and 256gb SSD. It has integrated graphics though, but it will still work fine for light gaming and indie games. It weighs in at just 2.9 lbs and has a 14 hour advertised battery life.

For more suggestions to get a better idea of what you’re looking for, you can look at my comprehensive list of recommendations here.

If you didn’t get one yet then allow me to quote my own reddit list about best laptops, and recommend the **The Acer Aspire E 15**

* 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD both are somewhat standards in 600 range so finding them on 500~ range is somewhat a catch.

* Advertised battery life of up to 12-hours, Backlit Keyboard.

Here is a little in depth review of it :

* Same with the cheaper Acer, it is made from plastic, but it feels sturdy, screen comes with anti glare finish so it will work well outside.

* Battery life is great about 5-8 hours of general usage.
* Backlit keyboard, quite and comfortable, Trackpad have been getting some mixed reviews, I think it is a software issue, or maybe it is because some people are not used to trackpads.

* Speakers are good, above average for laptops in this range.

* Very thin, very quite (can barely hear the fans), It has room for more ram as well as more SSD, Finger print magnet.

hmmm, I think we will need to make a compromise somewhere, most light weight, long battery, small college laptops will come with HD 520, HD 620 like on this list, and most gaming laptops will come with either weak battery or heavier laptops, a good middle ground might be this acer comes with GPU better than HD 620, comes with long battery life, but it is somewhat heavy and doesn’t have the best screen, so which route would you prefer ?

USA $650 - Grad school laptop

Posted on: May 26, 2017 by starchaserro

Hi,

I did a search for you to find the cheapest laptops with a dedicated video card and this is **what I got**

If you want to play anything now or in the future I strongly suggest you get some basic video card for your needs, a 940MX should be fine. There is even a gaming laptop that you could get Dell 5576 but the processor will be pretty underpowered, sort of like an Intel 7100U. Otherwise my top pick is the Asus X556U/F556U but it’s mainly available in Europe. I suppose you could go with the Acer E 15 which has a dedicated video card.

Posted on: May 25, 2017 by amanpanda

What do you think between these two ACER models? Newegg is having a sale and it looks to me like the difference is the 1TB HDD vs 256 SSD. Were there other differences? Would it be feasible to buy and install an SSD for $100 and then have both drives? And how hard would that be?

1. Acer #1

2. Acer #2

I’d like SSD, but if everything else is equal and I could buy one to install after, I’d be ok with that.

The **E 15 E5-575G-57D4** is actually what came to mind first when I saw your post. It is arguably the most popular laptop in that budget range and I have proven it’s 12 hours battery life to be almost on point which I think is fantastic… Also, with a 7th gen i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, fast 256 GB SSD and even a gtx 940 mx, you should have no problem at all running Mathlab and Visual Studio.

In your budget based on what you want to do as well as due to the fact that you want a built in Optical drive, easily I can say go for this **Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 **.. It comes with a new 7th generation i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, a fast 256 GB SSD and a NVIDIA GeForce 940MX with 2GB of GDDR5 dedicated graphics card for gaming. It will run emulators easily with no problem at all..In addition, this laptop has an optical drive which most laptops nowadays don’t have… It also has a 12 hours battery life which has proven by myself to be close to accurate..

The **E 15 E5-575G-57D4 ** would really be a good laptop for you based on what you are looking for. It’s screen backlight is not the brightest, but it has a decent 1080p resolution and the images are quite fine. If you plan on moving away from the socket for a while, no worries , as this laptop has an awesome battery life.

Don’t worry about the Graphics card and disk drive, you might just need them one day.

It also has a full 1080p TN display, 8gb of Ram, a 256GB SSD, and a GTX 940MX graphics card which will work very well for video editing and light / moderate gaming. It’s battery is advertised at lasting up to 12 hours, but expect more along the lines of 6-10.

Less than $700 laptop in the US

Posted on: January 29, 2017 by Michiganders

If you think you may be interested in a 2 in 1, maybe look into the Lenovo Yoga 710 for just under $700. It is a 14” with a touchscreen and 2 in 1 capabilities with pretty good specs and build quality. It has a new Kaby lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram and 256gb ssd. It also has a full 1080p IPS display, a backlit keyboard, a very long battery life, and weighs in at 3.6 pounds. The only problem is the right shift button is in a bit of an irregular position and can be difficult to adapt to. It has intel HD 620 graphics which should work fine for CS:GO and similar light games as well.

If you want something smaller, Another option you could look into is the new HP Envy 13 for $700 (US). It is small and compact, yet decently powerful with a new kaby lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram, 256gb ssd, and intel HD 620 graphics. It also has an extremely long battery life (advertised up to 16 hours), a sleek aluminum build, and a 1080p IPS display. It also has HD 620 graphics which should be fine for light gaming.

If you’re fine with less portability and think you may want a 15”, I would suggest the Acer E15 for $550. It has a new kaby lake i5 processor, 8gb of ram, 256gb ssd, and a GTX 940MX graphics card. It will work extremely well for light / moderate gaming with its dedicated GPU. It also has a 1080p TN display, a backlit keyboard, and a very long battery life.
