Slim and powerful gaming notebook with a cool feature to spice up things
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition (VN7-791G) is just as good as its little brother. It has the same premium build quality, thin profile and powerful hardware. The screen is almost the same with just a little bump in the size. The interior is just as comfortable – good keyboard, nice, but sometimes inconsistent touchpad, and red LED backlight. We did notice, however, that the lid bends easily under small pressure due to the fact that the hinges are placed apart and the middle of the screen stands unsupported. Although, this is a minor issue that most people will not even notice.

80% Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition VN7-791G review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
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.

Not much more powerful. On paper, the powerful hardware upgrade of Acer's Nitro series seems appealing. Although, the performance has not improved in the synthetic benchmarks, gamers might appreciate more fps and a higher display contrast.
70% Acer V17 Nitro Black

The V17 is decent overall, and the size and modest performance allows it to run without making a lot of noise. The price is attractive, especially now you can find it for $200 under the MSRP, but there are many competitors with higher-quality materials that simply look better, and they don’t fail the touchpad test.

Comment

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.

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.
