Reviews for the Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-72C4

The Acer’s good specification means it’s got enough power for gaming and demanding work, and it’s backed up by reasonable ergonomics and a good screen quality. Its thermal performance and battery life let it down, though, and hardcore users won’t be sated by its keyboard or trackpad. It’s a decent general-purpose notebook, but gaming laptops, hybrids and Ultrabooks are better options if you’ve got particular tasks in mind.

While manufacturers like Samsung and Apple battle for supremacy in the luxury ultrabook market, Acer has carved a niche for itself by building affordable, entry-level laptops and Chromebooks. The Aspire V 15 Nitro Black Edition offers solid 1080p gaming performance, excellent audio, and a comfy keyboard, but suffers from short battery life and limited Wi-Fi range.

The Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition has a lot going for it. The $1,499 laptop offers solid overall performance and speed with surprisingly loud audio in a handsome, if forgettable, chassis. You'll also get respectable gaming performance, provided you're not playing at native resolution.

Comment

Model: The Nitro Black is a sleek, sophisticated and elegant black gaming notebook. It weighs 2.4 kg and is 1 inch (2.54 cm) thick and delivers powerful graphics and processing performance. Instead of being loud and flashy in terms of design, the Nitro Black appears more subtle and simple. The keyboard is brilliantly lit up in orange-red, making the gadget look fiercely powerful when fully turned on.

The 15.6" screen comes in a 16:9 ratio and more importantly has an option for a 4K IPS display. It is extremely bright with wide viewing angles, making it easy for viewing by large crowds. The Nitro Black comes equipped with powerful a Intel Core i7 quad core processor for laptops, which are designed based on the models created for desktops. Thanks to the Turbo Boost technology, the processor's clock rate can increase to up to 3.2 GHz from its base clock of 2.5 GHz.

This hardware  is combined with a GeForce GTX 860M graphics card and dual channel DDR3 memory. The inbuilt stereo speakers are impressively outfitted with excellent audio quality and volume. To deal with the heat built up, the Nitro Black is outfitted with Acer's own CoolBoost fans. The combinations of all these features makes the Nitro Black the ultimate gaming laptop due to its smooth performance, lack of major faults and affordability.

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.


15.60":

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.


66.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
