Reviews for the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-591G-74LK
Source: Laptop Media
Although there are things that we would like to change like the problematic servicing and port location, Aspire V 15 Nitro has managed to become perhaps the most lucrative gaming notebook on the market. At the time of publication of the review, the position of VN7 in our ranking of most affordable gaming laptops is number four, with 2% behind Y50. Given the presence of an IPS screen, however, the battle becomes quite fierce. In front position is another Acer model in two modifications, which undoubtedly is great for its price, but its graphics performance is much lower.

The Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition is basically a desktop replacement squeezed into the body of a stylish thin-and-light notebook. And a fairly powerful one at that. Though its mid-level Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics will hold you back some and its battery life could be better, the Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition has a top-notch screen and a potent component combo for work and entertainment.

Acer's Aspire V15 Nitro provides another mostly solid gaming laptop option to choose from near the $1000 mark. It's a capable machine, with a very good GPU and a speedy processor that work in tandem to display flashy 3D games with strong detail and fluid motion. Granted, it's not a top-tier device, and the performance in more recent games like Far Cry 4 shows how more demanding games are starting to push it to the limit with higher graphics settings.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.
