Naming is such an important aspect of any laptop launch, and manufacturers don’t always get it right. For every new device that arrives with a moniker that perfectly captures its primary focus, there are others with names made up of seemingly random letters and digits. Thankfully, with the Acer Aspire V Nitro, that name tells you exactly what you’re getting.
Yes, this is a laptop for those who like speed and power, and lots of it. It has the raw power to take on any task, the sleek looks to ensure people notice you while you’re doing so, and a choice of Full HD displays to make the very most of everything you do. There’s even a Black Edition that crams in the latest Nvidia graphics and Core i7 processor for the best possible laptop gaming experience.
You have plenty of options, as we’ll see later, but if you go all-out for power the Aspire V Nitro Black Edition version is a monster of a performer. Pair a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM, then throw in Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 860M graphics, and you’ll soon be enjoying the latest cutting-edge games in their full glory, complete with immersive audio from the four built-in speakers.
The Aspire V Nitro Black Edition also has some unique methods of maintaining that high performance level. Acer’s DustDefender technology uses the laptop’s high-speed cooling fan to blow out any dust as it builds up inside the machine, which both prolongs the laptop’s working life and helps to keep those superfast components nice and cool. And when you’re really pushing things to the limit, just activate Acer CoolBoost to speed up the fan and eke out a little more power.
All that power means the Aspire V Nitro can serve up quite the picture on its Full HD display. It uses IPS technology to give it vivid colours with wide viewing angles, and Acer’s ComfyView non-glare technology limits eye fatigue and reduces reflections. Plus, those four speakers pump out top-quality audio, particularly during movies thanks to Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre Dialog Enhancement.
This laptop also has a sleek and stylish chassis, with just the right amount of bling. It’s crafted with Nanoimprint Lithography technology to make it soft to the touch, while its metallic lid is designed with intricate patterns for a unique tactile effect. The keyboard is backlit for use during those late-night gaming sessions – and in red, to make you stand out that little bit more.
You can enjoy the Aspire V Nitro however you want it, as it comes in both 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch models, with a range of specifications. You’re free to keep it simple with solid everyday power and integrated Intel graphics, or go all out with the best parts on offer. All models come with plenty of hard disk storage, along with a solid-state drive to ensure Windows is always instantly responsive. You can also add a Blu-ray drive to go with your Full HD screen
Whichever way you put it together, be it restrained affordability or Black Edition extravagance, the Acer Aspire V Nitro is a powerful laptop that’s ready to handle your work and entertainment needs with a style and sleekness so often missing from devices that focus primarily on performance.
