The new V 17 Nitro features Intel RealSense technology and will be available worldwide later this month, still powered by a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

Acer announced last Saturday the introduction of new Aspire gaming laptops that feature Intel's RealSense 3D technology. The new Aspire V 17 Nitro notebooks will also come with bundled apps that provide "new ways to interact in gaming, entertainment, and content creation." According to Jerry Kao, President of Acer Notebook Business Group, "Business applications include 3D modeling, mapping and architectural design, while the most popular consumer uses will likely include augmented reality gaming, and simple PC navigation and control."

Intel RealSense 3D brings together a conventional camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector. Together, they detect infrared light that bounces back from objects in front of the portable, thus allowing apps to detect hand and head motion, as well as facial expressions. The highlights of the new Acer V 17 Nitro notebook include the following:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4710HQ
  • Memory/Storage: up to 16 GB RAM; 128 GB or 256 GB SSD and up to 1 TB internal hard disk drive storage
  • Display" 17.3-inch Full HD IPS
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 ac
  • Audio: 4X2W speakers with Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater technology

The Acer Aspire V 17 Nitro series will hit the market later this month. Pricing, availability, and detailed specs vary by region and will be announced soon.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
