    "The Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 is a great laptop I found when I was looking for a cheap laptop for under $1000 that I could use for gaming. While not specifically listed as a gaming computer, I found it was workable with many games that aren’t too graphics or power intensive. One can always upgrade to make it more suitable for such a purpose. The Acer Aspire is a great all around computer that I would certainly recommend you to check out if you want a great machine that performs great for under $1000."

    "As a gamer, this is not a gaming laptop and will perform poorly when running pretty much any game that is not on Facebook. This laptop is for everyday use, e.g. email and surfing the web. Nowhere in the product page does it even suggest that it's good for gaming."
