I7, 128GB SSD
This is a coupon for the newest Acer gaming laptop model, the VN7-591G (V15 Nitro Black Edition). This version comes with an I7-4720HQ, 1080p IPS display, 1TB HDD for $900
Gaming performance of the GTX 860M 4GB (Maxwell, confirmed by users) + I7 is very good for 1080p gaming, running most games on very high settings. Under gaming, the CPU throttles only a bit and GPU is not (check the review) and the VN7-591G delivers good performance in all games, at least as good as other GTX 860M equipped laptops.
The battery performance is not that good currently at around 3-4 hours tops, depending on your way of use, but it might get better.
The new VN7-591G version has a new IPS model, which is much brighter, so this problem is solved.
Overall, this is a good option, especially now, that we know that the new GTX 960M is actually a GTX 860M with a little higher boost clocks (which in many cases you won’t get).
So, for $900 this is a nice machine. I would say that you can wait for a nicer deal (similar version was selling for $800 not long ago, so). Soon, Skylake equipped laptops will become available for purchase, so you might want to wait a bit. Also, some refurbished laptops are more cost effective. However, this is a rather ok deal.
