Black Nitro. Acer does not make any compromises in the configuration of its Aspire V15 Nitro. Buyers get a slim computer with very powerful hardware, an SSD, and IPS screen. The laptop is primarily aimed at gamers. However, the odd non-gamer might also take a liking to the computer.

It is 38.5x26x2 and weights 2.2kilos. Most of the connections are on the right side so if you wanted this could be close to a wall or partition on your left if you wanted. This nice looking notebook is also powerful and has an Full HD 1080P screen although it is only 15.6inches. The surprising thing is that it looks the right size even though the majority of 15.6inch offering give a much lower resolution.

100% Acer Aspire V15 Nitro (VN7-591G) review
Source: Expert Reviews English version
We're really impressed with Acer's first proper foray into the gaming laptop market. The Aspire V15 Nitro is handsome, well built and is a competent performer in every task you're likely to throw at it. Not only that, it's also £50 cheaper than comparable efforts from Chillblast and Scan, although both the Chillblast Defiant 2 Mini and the Scan 3XS Graphite LG156 have much better collect and return warranties versus Acer's paltry one-year return to base cover. Nonetheless, for mid-range gaming performance, there isn't much that can beat the V15 Nitro and it wins our Best Buy award.

A thin, black blade of high-performance goodness

At first glance, the Aspire V Nitro design is on-point and understated, much unlike the lot of loud and boisterous gaming laptops. Better yet – despite a few hiccups – the rig seems to performs admirably for a machine starting at $1,099. While Acer doesn’t have a rich history in the gaming world, don’t count the company out yet before its (hopeful) triumphant return. I left the Nitro with just a small taste of its style and power. Now I, to keep the metaphor going, look forward to really biting into this mobile PC gaming machine to see what it’s capable of when it launches later this year.

Well, the new Acer V15 Nitro / VN7-591G gaming laptop deliver quite a blow. For around $1000, the V15 I7 version [probably] comes with an I7-4710HQ, GTX 860M GPU, 8GB RAM, 1TB SSHD and an 1080p IPS. This price is a projection of Czech prices, but I think it’s a reasonable speculation. So, for this price you get the same performance as other 15.6″ gaming laptops, but also an IPS display.

Model: The Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro might look like any other inconspicuous laptop out there with its blend design and black color scheme, but looks might not tell the entire story. The front cover has the Acer logo and the textured lid is held by a metallic hinge layout. Inside is a full sized keyboard with number pad and the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro comes with a multi-touch touchpad. The laptop shines in the specifications department as it is actually an entry-level gaming setup. The Windows 8.1 laptop comes with an Intel Core i7-4710HQ quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, 8 GB DDR3 dual-channel RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M GPU with 2 GB GDDR5 RAM.

There is no doubt the hardware can perform, especially with a Kingston 128 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD combo. The 15.6 inch 16:9 LG Philips panel with IPS technology produces vivid colors and good contrast. Audio quality is also good with a Realtek ALC283 high definition audio controller. All interfaces are at the side of the device and consists of three USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI out and a card reader. The 2.2 kg device is perfect for someone who is looking for a gaming PC with good battery life but without all the sparkle.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

87.8%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
