You don’t have to always spend a small fortune on a laptop in order to play games on them, although this does always depend on the type of game you wish to play. Many mid-range laptops are able to handle most games, although if you want a more graphic intensive game, then you are going to have to dig that bit deeper to get a model with a more powerful processor and more RAM, and a much better graphics card.
Take the Acer X756UX-HI51105W for example; this is a 17.3-inch laptop that comes with a Skylake processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics. 12GB of RAM and also support for 1080p video playback, and so has all the right ingredients for a mid-range gaming laptop.
Now that we have breezed over the Acer X756UX-HI51105W specs, we bet we now have your attention? What you actually have here is a laptop with a 17-inch screen, a Intel Core i5-6200U dual-core processor with 3MB cache and 2.3GHZ, up to 2.8GHz. This working in perfect harmony with the 12GB of DDR4 RAM and the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M graphics. Battery life is up to 5 hours and you also get a 1TB hard drive, we just wish this was an SSD to help improve the speed, although Best Bey would have to put a higher price on the laptop then.
Speaking of which, it looks as though Best Buy is the only retailer selling the Acer X756UX-HI51105W, which is not a bad thing seeing as though you can currently purchase it at a reduced price of $599.99.
What does concern us is the lack of Acer X756UX-HI51105W 17″ reviews, as there are none. There are no user reviews on Best Buy, which is strange, and so we can only assume that this is not a very popular model, or one that the company has only just started to sell. Having said that this could be one of those models that are exclusive between Acer and Best Buy.
We did come across one review though, and so you might want to have a little read over this first before you make your decision to purchase this laptop.
