Acer Aspire V Nitro Review
The Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition packs quality components including a high-end quad-core processor, discrete graphics and dual storage drives into an understated body. It has a great 4K-resolution display and sweet-sounding speakers.
The Aspire V Nitro’s looks likely won’t get a lot of ooohs and aaahs. It probably wouldn’t get a second glance from most people. It’s an attractive laptop, but it is understated and subdued — especially compared to your average gaming laptop.
Not everyone wants to have their electronics scream “look at me,” though. The lid, screen bezel and keyboard deck are covered in a soft-touch material that looks and feels good and the metal hinge adds just the right accent. Measuring 15.3 inches wide by 10.1 inches deep by 0.94 inches thick (about 390x258x24mm) and weighing 4.8 pounds (2.2kg), the laptop borders on thin and light.

Whether you want it for future-proofing purposes or just bragging rights, the 4K UHD 3,840×2,160-pixel resolution IPS screen is nice to have. The 4K content I viewed on it looked great and the matte finish will be appreciated so you’re not constantly fighting glare. The display gets pretty bright too, though you may have to go into the power options advanced settings menu to disable the adaptive brightness feature to get it to full strength.
It’s not a touchscreen, which may not bother you if you’ve never used a Windows 8 laptop with one. For me, it’s definitely something I missed while testing. The clickpad is textured like the rest of the body providing just enough drag to make cursor smooth. I did end up adjusting sensitivity and travel from the defaults however, to make getting from one side of the display to the other faster. Read more
