Gaming laptops are no longer simply desktop replacements. The latest gaming device from Acer - the Aspire V15 Nitro - is sleek enough and can be easily placed in any book bag, yet it is packed with power to enable you to enjoy your games on it.
The Aspire V 15 Nitro measures 0.9x15.3x10.1 inches and weighs 5.29 pounds. It has a plastic framework in black and a rough texture on the top. The hinge comes in metal and is quite sturdy. This metal also forms the internal framework of the device. You will find “Aspire V Nitro" stamped across the hinge. Overall, the quite a decent design as far as a gaming laptop is concerned.
Just as the lid, the touchpad and the palm rest have a similar matte-black finish. However, backlight of the keyboard is a bright red which lights up the key edges and the lettering. There is quite a good feeling working on the chiclet-style keyboard as you type; however even though the slightly flat keycaps work, one might miss the curved key surfaces when comparing it to the Lenovo Y50 Touch.
You will get access to all gesture controls required in Windows 8 with a huge click pad, but it is not exactly ideal as far gaming is concerned. A separate mouse is designed for gaming is recommended.
The laptop rental comes with a 15.6 inch screen display along with a 1,920x1, 080 resolution. The Aspire V 15 Nitro’s screen display allows you to save a lot of money and you don’t really sacrifice on the gaming experience. In fact the audio is surprisingly good and comes with four in-built speakers and surround sound (Dolby Digital Home Theater). The quality of the sound is also quite clear with minimum warp even at a high volume.
The laptop is equipped with a 128GB SSD which enables quicker boosting and enhanced performance. In addition to this, there is also a 1TB storage hard drive in the device.
Boutique vendors typically customize a gaming device and avoid installing any unwanted programs and apps. But the Aspire V 15 Nitro is loaded up in the same manner as the other Acer consumer models. The start screen will have several apps including eBook, Amazon Kindle, Netflix, Flipboard, eBay, Evernote Touch and many more.
