    Default Opinions: Acer Aspire 7, i7 8750H with 1060 6GB dedicated graphics.

    As Salamu Alaikum ya'll.

    Been away from gaming and such for around 2 years due to personal reasons. and now it's been poking me to try again. But the thing is that I don't stay at home that much, constantly moving. So upgrading my 3rd gen i7 system seems not a good option. So I was seeing what was available from a portable point of view and found Acer's Aspire 7 series. This laptop and the configuration seems too good to be true. But in reddit I've read some reviews and they were positive.

    I know it's a crime to play games on a laptop but adverse circumstances are there. I need your opinions on this asap. Should I or should I not?

    Some things I noticed from the reviews:

    1. Plastic body and metal frame.

    2. Requires it to be plugged in during heavy work for ultimate results in terms of battery and performance

    3. Around 3 hours of backup time with normal usage (movie, youtube, word etc)

    TIA

    Why not buy a ps4 and run on a portable monitor ? Btw that laptop looks decent to run some heavy games on med settings should be fine

    MSI GE63 RAIDER RGB 8RF is an alternative you can look at.

    Current MRP is 2 Lakhs 5 Thousand Taka, contact Flora Limited if you're interested.

    BTW it's configured with a GTX 1070 and 16 GB of Dual Channel 2400 MHz RAM, a 256 GB NVME SSD and 1TB of 7200 RPM.

    I have had hands on experience with the laptop and gaming on it is a very good experience, specially on the 120 Hz panel it came with. I'll be posting a review of it soon.

    That's going for $1349 as of today.

    When configured with a GTX 1070, 256 GB NVME SSD, 1TB 7200 Mechanical HDD and a 120 Hz, the price is $1999 only. I urge you to recheck your pricing with the configuration you saw, and the configuration I previously mentioned.

    look into Lenovo Ideapad 7 series 1050 TI GPU and Full metal frame Samsung nvme m.2 256 SSD. Looks professional so you wont be embarrassed if you take it to work. super quiet even when gaming. using for about 6 month or so. touchpad arent great but who uses touchpad when you are gaming. build quality and screen is way better than acer.
