Looking for a powerful laptop to run games and use heavy software? Check this list of Acer quad core laptops available on retail markets in 2016
Buying an Acer quad core is probably one of the fastest bets in laptop markets in 2016. From one side they are sturdy and reliable, but also has some great models with affordable prices, so you won’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get a fast laptop that will manage almost any task.
Things to Consider when Buying an Acer Quad Core Laptop
It might be not the easiest task to find your suitable laptop, but some points are important to be highlighted: an i7 is not always a quad core, so check if your processor is indeed a quad core.
Prefer to choose laptops from the latest generation of processors: Skylake. As they have lower energy consumption and more processing power than its predecessors.
Check if the RAM and video card specs are up to your needs. When buying an Acer quad core laptop I would strongly recommend models with at least 8GB of RAM and with a video card with 2GB memory.
The i7-6700HQ processor
On this list, I focused on laptops with the following processor: the i7-6700HQ. The i7-6700HQ powers some of the highest end laptops among Acer quad core laptops.
