Acer is not one of the computer companies that most people think about when it comes to PC gaming. However, they are trying to change that. They are targeting gamers who do not have thousands of dollars to spend on very expensive PC gaming desktops made by companies like Dell’s Alienware. This is a wise decision because there is a very large percentage of the gaming market that consists of people who do not have that kind of cash to throw around. These budget gamers are always looking for a cheaper PC gaming alternative. Acer has now given it to them in the form of the new Aspire GX-281.
The $800 price tag is dirt cheap for a gaming PC these days. You will also get a lot for your money if you decide to buy it. It has more power than you might expect a gaming PC in this price range to have. Early reviews have raved about the quality of the monitor and the speed of the processor. These are obviously two things that gamers take into great consideration before they plunk down a large amount of money. It remains to be seen how many people will embrace the Aspire GX-281. There have not been enough early reviews of the computer posted online to get an accurate sense of what the public thinks of it.
Acer has a very good track record when it comes to making inexpensive laptops that are very high quality. Gamers are hoping this trait carries over into the way they designed this gaming desktop. However, only time will tell. Acer is doing everything they can to promote this desktop. They are taking out a large amount of ad space online and in print. They also pushed their new gaming PC very heavily at this year’s E3 gaming convention. They definitely want to get the word out to financially challenged gamers that they can have a great experience for less cash.
