The Acer V3-572G is now selling for $550
Comes with GT 840M GPU and I5-4210U CPU which provides good 3D performance for $550, allowing you to play many games on medium-high settings@720p or medium settings@1080p. 8GB DDR3 RAM is enough for most people and you won’t have to think about adding more probably.
The 1TB HDD might be a little slow, but you can replace it with something faster. Anyway, it should be ok.
The screen is probably of low quality, but I’m sure you can replace it easily as it is an eDP display (probably) like in the V5-552G case. A good 720p/1080p IPS level display will cost you around $80-$90 tops, like the B156HAN01.X (for example)
Battery performance is good according to users over the web (check newegg feedback) and you’ll have around 5-6 hours the least.
So, for $500 it is a very good deal. Another cheaper model for $380 is also available with AMD A8-5557M and Radeon 8750M – might have a bit lower 3D performance, but a very good deal by itself.
