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.

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops.
