This week we received a laptop recommendation request from Sierra that wants a large screen laptop – 15 or 17″ – with a long battery life. The laptop will be used for gaming, movie watching and will also serve as a business laptop.

Our Laptop Recommendation
Gaming, large screen laptops and long battery life usually don’t go well together! The longest battery life will usually be found in 13.3″ laptops, but there is still a few 15-inch that’ll last longer than the others. I’d suggest staying away from 17-inch screens since they need more power, therefore you’ll get a shorter battery life.
I’d recommend three that will allow for good gaming performance and decent battery life. Note that playing a game on the battery – or anything that uses the discrete graphic card – is not recommended. No laptop will last long under those circumstances and your battery will quickly lose performance if you do it often.
The first one I’d recommend would be the Acer Aspire E5-575G-76YK. It’s a nice & powerful all black laptop that will fit well in a business environment, equipped with a good graphic card. With a powerful i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD hard drive, it’ll perform well in pretty much any circumstances. And with an ‘up to 12 hours’ of battery life, you cannot ask for much more!
Another powerful laptop that has a good battery life is the 15-inch HD Dell Inspiron i7559. It has a powerful graphic card and the manufacturer says the battery will last ‘up to’ 10 hours. The downside is that it’s a bit on the heavy side and the red might not please some business users (it’s light though and mainly black). But overall it’s a great choice.
Another you could look at would be the Acer V5-591G. With an ‘up to’ 8 hours of battery life, it’s quite decent and you can expect 4 to 7 hours of under normal usage. The main advantage is that the screen is Ultra-HD so you’ll have a better resolution than the others but it’ll also deplete the battery faster than a standard HD screen.

I hope that helps and don’t hesitate if you have any other question,
