|Aspire V17 Nitro|
CES has been known to be the place where major companies flaunt their latest and greatest to kick start the new year. Acer being a major player did not rest on their laurels and announced two new laptops powered by Nvidia's latest GTX 10 series of video cards.
|Aspire V15 Nitro|
The Aspire V Nitro is a 17.3 inch laptop that is powered by the Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and an Nvidia GTX 1060 with dedicated 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM with up to 16 GB of DDR4 system RAM, and is upgradable to 32 GB. For internal storage, it has NVMe PCIe Gen 3 or SATA SSD1, and a HDD1 of up to 2TB capacity for additional storage.
Cooling the Aspire V Nitro is Acer’s AeroBlade metal fan and the Coolboost technology allows users to manually control the cooling process when heavy use requires an added boost. The Aspire V Nitro notebooks also include DustDefender™, which uses dual high-speed fans with reverse rotation to remove dust build-up and improve heat dissipation.
What surprised us is an embedded fingerprint sensor at the top right corner of the track pad. Users will have the option of upgrading to a 4K UHD panel for those who need the bleeding edge tech.
