Early this year at CES, we saw a swarm of gaming laptops showcased by several companies. While a few new series were announced, most were upgraded to newer graphics, one announced by NVIDIA and ones that offer more powerful graphic output (read VR ready) at much lower prices.
Gaming PCs announced by Acer at CES on the same lines are now available in India. The Acer Aspire VX 15 based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics will be available online on Flipkart and through Acer retail stores at Rs 87,999.
