Design wise Aspire VX 15 follows the classic gaming laptop look with the Red and Black patterns. The Lid is made out of plastic with a faux-brushed-aluminum pattern and two red strips. You will also find the red patterns on the exhaust fan vents, trackpad, and the WASD keys. Overall the laptop feels very sturdy and has very less body flex.

The Keyboard is backlit (RED) and comes with the 1.6 millimeters key travel. It also offers a very respectable port selection with a USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output port, an Ethernet jack, and a USB Type-C 3.1 port.
