Reviews for the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-591G-70JY
Source: PC Mag
Often, upgrading a lower-tier product with premium components results in a better end product, but for the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro (VN7-591G-70JY), that's not the case. The increased RAM and storage capacity is a small change, and most of the higher price is attributable to the new display. The 4K display looks great, but the fact that the gaming hardware can't take advantage of it makes it difficult to justify, and contributes the shorter battery life. If you really want the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro design, do yourself a favor and stick to the less expensive Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro (VN7-591G-75S2), our Editors' Choice for entry-level gaming laptops, which offers better performance in gaming and longer battery life.

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.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
