Hi Guys,

Hope you all doing well.
I am planning to purchase 'Acer Aspire E5-572G'. Specification given below. After lot of study, I have shortlisted this model considering the configuration. Price is $476 as of March 31, 2017.

I will be doing my programming work, bit of gaming on weekends such as Euro Truck Simulator 2, GTA V (low or medium settings considering GPU power) and watching movies. Do you think for all these task, it would be right choice? Also correct me if I am missing anything in gaming area, which is I will be able to play these 2 games on low or medium or high after turning down some settings and if there any other new action games I can play. Any suggestion, comments, guidance will be appreciated because I am in confusion right now even though I had mentioned I am planning to purchase in the beginning.

Acer Aspire E5-572G-525V
Core i5 4210M
4GB RAM
1TB HDD
2gb NVIDIA® GeForce 940M Graphics

And yes, if this model supports Win 7 X64 drivers along with Linux. I heard people complaining about Win 7 drivers. I do not wish to install Win 10.

Thanks and have a great day!!
Moses

pretty sure this model doesnt have windows 7 support on acer official site(correct me if i am wrong)if it comes with windows 8 then stick with it if you dont want to upgrade to windows 10.for your usage this should be a good buy though.slap in another 4gb ram it will be much better.

I am getting this model with Linux at $476. Will dual boot Win 8 and Linux Mint if purchased. So you think it is good for programming, gaming and watching movies. Yes, I will add 8GB more RAM than 4GB to make it future proof for atleast next 5 years.

if your only concern is light gaming(not triple AAA stuff on max settings 1080p) and programming/editing it should do you well for that price range.it should last you a long time if that is your only target of usage.

Yes, that's the plan. Regarding Win 7 driver, it is available on Acer website, I will give it a shot else have to settle with Win 10 than Win 8. I am not sure about heating issue with this laptop while playing game considering I live in tropical country where temperature hovers around 35 C to 40 C in summer. What do you think about it? Thanks for all your replies, it does clears the doubts I have.
