1. A dedicated graphics card that can play modern games, at least, on medium settings.
2. A premium leaning screen.
3. Better cooling when under stress.
4. At least a mid-tier CPU.
5. Various other design qualities that make it stand out (sharper edges, colorful lights etc.)
My experience in gaming laptops have been mainly with Alienware (the latest being the 15 r2 line with the GTX 980m).
Firstly, I am overall very impressed with this Acer laptop, in general. With every put together with the feel, the look, and the operation, I can say this is well made and it compares very well with the Alienware. Where it does not match the Alienware is in the case quality. As for the rest? The Acer is equal to or better on almost every level. Here's why:
Very vibrant and deep colors. Does not wash out greens/blues and looks very clear in pictures. There is a little grain on fonts and screen edges. Can be turned bright enough to easily work in sunlight with about 30-40% wash out in sunlight. Almost no angle diminishing, probably 2% if any ... at almost 180 degrees. This is a testament to the LG IPS screen. Therefore, you can work in the sunlight very easily with the brightness turned up, and regardless of the angle you are looking at the screen, the images stay the same with no angle 'washout'. Superb screen performance.
Travel of the lid is about 140 degrees; does not lay flat.
A little on the cheap feeling side. Not necessarily a bad thing. Does not attract fingerprints. Matte and rough texture like the lower end laptops you find in stores. The lid has the vertical 'line' pattern that are slightly raised. While the case feels roughly the same as, say, one of the lower end laptops in stores I say this isn't a bad thing because the design and build is so well done. The case doesn't flex, and the overall design is sleek, sharp, and...very good to look at. If you remember the line of Asus laptops that took their inspiration of the stealth bombers, this is similar, except think of this as a Jet-Stealth bomber, with none of the bloat.
Light for what it is. Will be fairly light in the back pack. Can be easily picked up with one hand.
Typical size for a 15" laptop. Will slide easily into carrying cases/backpacks because of the thin overall presence.
Matte and smooth, does not attract fingerprints. A very light 'thud' sound that does not 'click' and does not clack. Extremely quiet to use. Quality is good and similar to Alienware. Better quality keyboard than most laptops you find in this line.
Only one brightness setting for the backlit keys. Home and End keys are at the top, though the Home is above the backspace and End is above the asterisk. The PGUP and PGDN are together between home/end. A bit strange that they spaced out two keys between Home and End, however at *least* they didn't put the Home/End on the left/right arrow + Fn. This is a very suitable laptop for programmers as well.
Backlit is a cherry red, with the WASD keys being outlined a little more in red. Backlighting is even and goes quite well with the overall appearance of the laptop.
It is difficult to find a fluid/sensitive/lag-free touchpad in any laptop not named 'Mac'. Thankfully, thankfully, thankfully the touchpad here is very smooth with no-lage. There are no separate 'click' areas, such that the entire touchpad is one solid platform. So, then, it clicks like a macpro. There is no left right click distinctions except for the 'left' side is left click and right side is right click.
Extremely sensitive and almost up to the level of a mac. Usually touchpads are lousy on almost all PCs and this one is one of the best I have used. The clicks, however are hard to press. So they require a decent amount of pressure to use.
*Negative* - When holding click and dragging a window, there is lag (like most laptops I have found).
Dead quiet for normal browsing, the fan runs a 0%.

Allows for an added laptop drive, however you will have to buy an additional HD caddy. Currently Acer is giving these away for free if you register your S/N at: csapps.acer.com/kit-request
For the price, you are getting a very good gaming laptop that allows medium-to-high settings at 1080p, with a very beefy CPU. Overall laptop stays cool even when under stress (89 C or below), and has a decent build quality. For general browsers, or semi-hardcore gamers who want a great keyboard, touchpad, and beautiful screen this has exactly that.
Comfortable, quiet, illuminated keyboard + numpad.
Beautiful screen with full 1920x1080 resolution.
Surprisingly good sound from the speakers.
Plastic shell looks and feels cheap.
Plastic is a fingerprint magnet.
Worst touchpad ever! Breathe incorrectly and the cursor ends up in another dimension.
Sent in for warranty service already because touchpad/keyboard consistently lockup.
I'm not using this as a gaming machine but needed a laptop with some oomph. Compared models from reigning bloatware kings Acer, ASUS, Dell, and HP offering an i7 quad processor, 16 GB of RAM, a GPU, and SSD. The Acer offered the most bang-for-the-buck.
The biggest frustration so far has been with the touchpad. It truly is the worst I've ever come across. Fidgety, catching on imaginary obstacles, constantly changing the zoom or bouncing the cursor to another dimension altogether. Cured by disabling the touchpad completely and using a wireless mouse.
Some reviews mention bloatware but what I came across was rather minimal and mostly from Microsoft as part of the Windows 10 experience. What Acer includes is file management software for creating your own cloud (abFiles/abPhotos), software for maintenance and care of the laptop, Acer-specific software for games and applications, Mozilla Firefox, and McAfee antivirus.
Overall, the VX 15 is going to be a laptop with enough power to serve gaming, school, and business needs.
UPDATE: 06 Sep 2017 Laptop has been sent for warranty because the keyboard started locking up and required holding the power key to restart. This continues even after the motherboard and keyboard have been replaced. Due to the ongoing issues, the review has been modified to 3 stars.
This Laptop was FINE and GOOD with the Hard Drive and Memory it shipped with, I plan on doing A LOT of Audio and Video Processing with it so I pretty much needed a 500GB Hard-drive, although the Memory I upgraded to was the same 16GB size and same Speed, the Upgrade Memory I put in it had a better Cas-Latency and Timings..
As Said earlier this Laptop is Really Great "As Is" and unless you need it for lots of Audio and Video editing, than a bigger Hard-drive is probably needed. You surely wouldn't need to upgrade the Memory, like I did.. I just knew I had a spare Laptop I could put the extra left over Memory and Hard-drive into... I've had GOOD LUCK with Acer Tech Support, although haven't really needed to call them for anything besides just calling them to see if their Tech Support was Good or Not....
I've been using this laptop for about 3 months now with NO PROBLEMS or Performance Issues.. It Performs as Good as a Desktop with the Hardware it's made with.. I recommend that you give this Laptop a try because I don't think it will Disappoint you.. The one and only thing that makes me a little disappoint with this laptop and the price you pay for it, for almost $1000 you would think that at least the Base Plate would be made out of Aluminum, but this laptop has NO Aluminum anywhere.. Not a Big Deal but for the price you would think Acer could of used some Aluminum and still made a Profit..
