Acer Aspire 7 (A715-76G) review – good all-rounder that can be used even for gaming

If you need an all-purpose laptop that lacks the typical gaming design of modern machines, you don’t have a lot of options. Especially if you don’t want to pay a whole fortune for an office notebook that is going to be used for playing some games for an hour or two after work.

In this scenario, the Acer Aspire 7 (A715-76G) is one of the possible solutions. The laptop doesn’t cost much and it offers Intel Alder Lake-H CPU options and optional RTX 3000 and RTX 2000 dGPU variants. On top of that, you can configure it with a high refresh rate display and this will transform it into a pretty decent gaming device (at least on paper).

Given the price tag of this machine, it doesn’t bring all the bangs and whistles of today’s top-end devices, but that’s normal. The notebook brings to the table extras like a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi 6E, and Thunderbolt 4 which can be important for a lot of future buyers.

At least for us, the thing that matters the most is how the cooling will handle the thirsty H-series CPU alongside a dedicated video card. We will see the end result very soon so stay tuned!
