Early 2018, I overviewed the incredible gaming laptop from acer. And at it's price point it's still an excellent buy 6 months later. It's cleverly optimized so that nothing is wasted on it. The display for example is 1920X1080, and the graphics card inside is a GTX 1050ti, which is the IDEAL card when it comes to HD gaming. So no overkill means lower costs. Also the higher end CPU and RAM config make it an excellent work station in general.
