Reviews for the Acer Aspire V15 VN7-591G-74SK

70% Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Edition
Source: Digital Trends English
Acer’s Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition delivers on the promise of 4K in a laptop. While it’s arguable the resolution isn’t needed on a 15.6-inch display (Apple’s Retina resolution of 2,880×1,800 already obscures pixels nicely) that dispute can be left for another day. The V15’s display is close to perfection. I fell in love with it.

So, here we are again at the end of a review. I'm pretty sure you all know what's about to happen, so take a read or skip to the bottom to see the bottom line ranking. Let's talk performance. The V Nitro first and foremost is a gaming system. It's being marketed as such, so it better perform as such. And indeed it does. We see decent gaming performance, though it could always be improved by including a faster GPU. However, with the GPU used, gaming performance is plenty for a system that is made to go on the road easily.

Model:

Acer's latest attempt to woo the gaming community comes in the form of the brand new Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-74SK gaming laptop. The exterior has a black matte finish, hence the "black edition" in its name. Like many other new laptops, a DVD optical drive is excluded to make the laptop lighter and thinner. The design is surprisingly slim for a gaming laptop at just under 2.54 cm thick, which looks unreal from the side. It is light and portable, weighing in at only 2.2 kg.

The Acer Aspire V15 also comes with a 15.6 inch IPS screen with 1920x1080 pixels, just the right amount to look great without straining its hardware. The hardware is of course top of the line: a powerful Intel Core i7 quad core processor, 8 GB RAM and an 860M Nvidia graphics card.

The Acer can run even the most demanding video games in the market smoothly. The battery life lasts anywhere between 2 to 4 hours depending on usage, which is pretty respectable for a gaming laptop with this hardware, though there is still room for improvement.

NVIDIA 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.

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.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.4 kg:

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. 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.


82%: 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.
