Reviews for the Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition VN7-792G-79KE

Just as before, the new Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition offers great value for the asking price. It’s thin, it’s relatively light, it’s sturdy and has a great keyboard with little setbacks. The touchpad, on the other hand, appeared to be a big disappointment. The last couple of models we tested from Acer featured great touchpads but the new Aspire V15 and V17 Nitro notebooks are nowhere near what we are used to. The trackpad often skips, it’s unpredictable and sometimes jiggles around without lifting your finger from the surface. We suspect that this is a software issue but we cannot confirm this. Two out of two models that we’ve tested had this problem and were all tested using the latest drivers and BIOS versions.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M 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.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.
While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.
There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
