This a great option for those seeking a large, powerful all-rounder of a laptop that can turn its hand to just about anything. Whether it’s gaming for the kids, powering through your work or just sitting back and watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones on a nice big HD screen, it can do the lot. This it backs up with a smart if not altogether premium look and the addition of Intel’s RealSense camera is both a bit of fun and potentially a useful extra when new software and Windows 10 arrives.

Comment

Model: The Aspire V17 Nitro by Acer is a gaming laptop in a class of its own. This gaming machine has a 17.3 inch Full HD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It features an Intel Core i7 quad core processor with a clock rate of up to 3.5 GHz with its Turbo mode, and 12 GB of RAM. As for data storage, there is the hybrid hard drive with a capacity of 1 TB and 8 GB flash memory for the operating system. The operating system used is Windows 8.1 by Microsoft. This notebook is equipped with two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI port.

The key feature that makes this device a gaming laptop is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphic card with 2 GB dedicated DDR5 VRAM. The exterior is from black plastic with a matte finish, which gives the V17 an elegant look. The keyboard has a red backlight, which makes gaming in the dark possible. The 3 cell battery with a capacity of 4605 mAh can last about 4 hours on regular use. The weight of this gaming laptop is only 3 kg and it has a maximum height of 28 mm with the lid closed. Lastly, this notebook has a Blu Ray drive, which makes this gaming notebook a multifunctional device.

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.


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.


3 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.


Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
