Reviews for the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G-706L
Aspire Nitro on Nitro! The Aspire Nitro is familiar, just like the GeForce GTX 1060. It is the combination of the two components that makes the Acer Aspire Nitro 2016 such an interesting device. The price is supposed to start at around 1,300 Euros, so it could be a game-changer in the entry-level gaming segment.

When we say that Acer's gaming lineup is impressive from top (Predator) to bottom (Aspire VX), we don't mean to slight the middle. The Nitro is worth checking out, even if it doesn't scream for attention.

The Aspire V 17 Nitro BE lineup was associated and marketed as gaming-oriented but with the new VN7-793G version, the sub-brand makes an interesting turn. Yes, the hardware is typical for a gaming laptop and offers a lot of horsepower – enough to run AAA titles with medium to high settings with resolution cranked up to 1080p but the whole concept of the notebook makes it more suitable for content creation, multimedia purposes and some entertainment at the end of the day. Why?

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.
