The design of Acer Aspire VX 15 is eye catching, which can be liked by everyone of us. The one thing that stands out in this laptop is that it looks like a sports car.

Acer Aspire VX 15 comes with the screen size of 15.6-inch IPS panel with a full-HD resolution which produces sharp text and images. While the brightness level is quite low and the display does not feel vibrant because the colors are bit dull. Even indoor we have to maximize the brightness.

The keyboard is also styled with LED lights. The lights glow from the keys which make it easy to type in lights off. The keys are of curved design so that your fingers can feel comfortable while typing. The other main things about the keys are that they do not make noise while typing. There is a generous palm rest area and a larger track pad.
