Acer has launched its new budget gaming laptop in India, dubbed Acer Aspire 7. The key feature of the laptop brings the AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors to the budget gaming laptop segment in India, with two SKUs of the Aspire 7 available in India right now. The laptop offers typical new generation elements such as sleek borders on the display as well as the keyboard, but retains the number pad despite sleek dimensions. Launched in the budget segment, the Acer Aspire 7 is meant for casual gamers who may also use the laptop for general work tasks as well.
Acer Aspire 7 price, availability
The Acer Aspire 7 gaming laptop is available now on Flipkart, as well as the Acer India online store. The laptop has been launched with two official SKUs, with the Aspire 7’s 8GB RAM variant costing Rs 54,990 in India. The other SKU offers 16GB RAM, and costs Rs 58,990.
Acer Aspire 7 key specifications
As mentioned before, the Acer Aspire 7 is powered by an AMD Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 series processor. To be exact, the Aspire 7 houses the AMD Ryzen 5-5500U, which is based on the new AMD Zen 3 core architecture and is made on the 7nm chipset fabrication processor. The new mid-range processor is expected to offer significant performance advantages over its Intel counterparts, along with a boost to the overall efficiency.
Alongside, the Acer Aspire 7 features the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB GDDR6 graphics, which should be good enough to offer middling graphics performance even in new generation AAA games. You can get either 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 memory, and a 512GB SSD as standard. The RAM module can also be upgraded post purchases, and supports an expansion of up to 32GB DDR4 memory, should you want to configure it later.
Other specifications include a 15.6-inch full HD IPS LCD display with standard 60Hz refresh rate and sleek bezels, a backlit keyboard and a multi-touch gesture recognition trackpad that looks to be of a decent size in photos. In terms of ports, the Acer Aspire 7 features an Ethernet port, a full-size HDMI port, one USB-C 3.2, two USB-A 3.2 (of which one is dedicated for device charging), a legacy USB-A 2.0 and a 3.5mm audio port.
It also gets an HD webcam, and supports Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6. The 48Wh battery on the Aspire 7 is rated for 11.5 hours of battery run time, but real-world battery life will certainly differ with usage and other conditions. The laptop can be bought only in the Charcoal Black shade, and weighs 2.15kg.
