The $500 version I am looking at (it can be found between $500 and $550) has an i5-7200U Kaby Lake CPU, 8 GB of RAM, a 1 TB hard drive and a Nvidia 940MX GPU. The RAM and storage can be upgraded and there’s a slot for an M2 SATA drive.

The GPU is one we’ve seen on a few other computers, namely the awesome Mi Air 13 I looked at late last year:

The Acer delivers similar performance here with the E 15. It’s enough to run most current games at low settings although you might have to drop into 720P on a few of them to get a playable framerate. Still it’s better than having no GPU at all.

The display leaves much to be desired unfortunately. It’s a low quality TN display that’s pretty washed out.

But for $500 this is so far the lowest cost gaming capable laptop we’ve seen this year.
