Do you already have a desktop PC?
A gaming laptop is generally extremely poor value, and you can usually get a PC of equivalent performance for about half the price.

As Chugalug said, unless you need the portability of the laptop, get a desktop PC that costs the same, and you'll get much better value for your money.

The Acer VX15 is a good laptop, but if you don't absolutely need a laptop, you shouldn't get it. Yes, laptops are more convenient when it comes to first boot, but a desktop PC, after this initial struggle, will really serve you better than a laptop. The Asus is good as well, but can you specify which Acer Aspire VX 15 you are talking about - the one which is around Rs 99,000, or the one that's around 112,000 on Amazon?

I need portability because I am always on the move.......Acer Aspire VX Core i7 7th Gen - (8 GB/1 TB HDD/128 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home/4 GB GPU)..... Rs 87990 on flipkart........ I already have a gaming PC which stays at home unlike me.

Honestly the Acer laptop is great for the money...But yes, the 1050 Ti will improve gaming experience incredibly, so if you can push it to that, get the MSI laptop. The Acer laptop is great as well:

These are long videos, mind you, so you can skip to the charts at the end of the videos unless Teach Deals' videos interest you - they are interesting, but only to a few people including me. If you like them, watch them whole - they include a lot of useful information that can help you choose the best laptop for you, plus you might even have some fun with the great game commentary he provides.

Anyway, the point is the Acer laptop is good, but if you can get a laptop with a 1050 Ti, it'll be much better for you not just in the long run but even currently.

MSI laptops are full of bloatware, and the Asus laptops are overpriced from what I can see with the exception of the 1050 Ti one listed.

Yes, that's a beast alright. But it lacks the ssd unlike the acer. Wouldn't having an ssd nice or is it not worth it?

As you might know, SSDs don't increase game performance, they only speed up boot and loading times. While it's nice to have one, it's not a necessity, unless you really need the fast speed of the SSD. If you want one, know that the Acer is good for gaming too. But the Asus is better, due to the 1050 Ti. Are you willing to give up good gaming experience for faster boot times and load times? Also, i think the Asus might even have a slot for an SSD, so you can later add in an SSD.
