Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G (7300HQ, GTX 1060, FHD, Eye-Tracking) Laptop Review

 

Made for gaming. Acer's current 17-inch series, known as Nitro, has received a CPU and GPU performance upgrade. The V17 Nitro thus performs very well while at the same time being moderately quiet. In addition, Acer has scrapped the optical drive but...

plain yet functional design ; rigid case ; Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 GB VRAM ; SSD + HDD ; decent input devices ; USB Type-C + Thunderbolt ; good battery life ; low power consumption ; well thought-out port distribution ; very quiet (even under...

no maintenance flaps ; key labels can be hard to read ; awkward fingerprint-reader positioning ; very slow SD-card reader

All things considered the Nitro - when viewed from a gaming perspective - performed very well. Acer effectively refutes the bias that Core i5 processors are not suitable for gaming and proves that the graphics card is much more important. The Intel...

Acer Aspire V17 Nitro BE VN7-793G Notebook (GTX 1060 Black Edition) Review

 

Aspire Nitro on Nitro! The Aspire Nitro is familiar, just like the GeForce GTX 1060. It is the combination of the two components that makes the Acer Aspire Nitro 2016 such an interesting device. The price is supposed to start at around 1,300 Euros, so...

There it is, the object of desire. The refreshed Acer Aspire Nitro VN7-793G uses the familiar design, and there should not be any surprises in terms of the display, either. The big story is the hardware equipment, because Acer offers a number of new...
