Pokdepinion: The Acer Aspire VX 15 should have at least 8GB of RAM for better overall performance. This really won’t affect the price much since the DDR4 modules are actually cheaper than DDR3 now. Instead of the GTX 1050 in the Aspire GX781, I really believe a GTX 1050Ti would have been a better option. Or they could go for a  Acer should put GTX 1050Ti for better performance on the Acer Aspire GX781 or offer AMD graphics cards like the RX 470 as an option to make them pair well with the Acer KG251Q and KG271 which come with AMD FreeSync technology.
