Reviews for the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-591G-75S2
No, bloatware isn’t the end of the world. You can spend an hour uninstalling all of the bloatware that comes preinstalled on the Aspire V 15 Nitro. You could also start over with a clean install of Windows 8 if you have a installation disk at home. We simply have trouble reconciling that Acer built this laptop specifically for gamers and several of these applications interfere with gameplay. In short, there is no excuse for having this much junk preinstalled from the factory on a laptop designed for gamers and priced at more than $1,000.

The 15.6-inch non-touchscreen display running at 1920 x 1080 did a solid job of displaying high definition video although we expected better. At this size, we’d have though Acer would have delivered a higher resolution display at this price range. However, sound quality from the inbuilt speakers was excellent, making the Aspire V Nitro 15 great for watching movies and gaming.

With that sort of showing for such a reasonable price, the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro (VN7-591G-75S2) easily earns our Editors' Choice entry-level gaming laptop.

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.
Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987.
