Acer’s latest series of gaming notebooks, Aspire V Nitro, is very stunning. It is a powerful entertainment laptop that is thin, lighter than most of the 15-inch laptops in the market. This premium laptop has a nice design, a great build, and a screen with fast hardware. You may get disappointed a bit with the battery and cooling system. But if we see the price range, the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition is the best option to consider in Singapore.
The new Aspire V15 Nitro case is made up of plastic with a textured lid cover and smooth interior. It feels nice to touch and has a good grip. However, the potential buyers may have to give extra time for cleaning the smudges and fingerprints on interiors. There is flex in the lid and you need to be careful while carrying this around. But the inner frame is strong and barely lifts even when pressed firmly. The grips are very well-designed, soft enough to allow users to lift the screen easily with a single hand, but stiff enough to keep the display securely in place.
There are three full-size USB slots and a USB 3.1 Thunderbolt 3 connector. Users will mainly have to rely on the HDMI output for video, but they could also use the USB 3.1 with the right adapter to display 4 K resolutions.
Keyboard and trackpad
The keyboard of Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition is pretty good and slightly upgraded as compared to older Nitros. It has slightly firmer keys and deeper strokes. The layout doesn’t seem perfect as the NumPad area and directional keys are a little cramped. The power button is on the top-right and can be deactivated from the software. Although the keyboard types well but some users may find it hard to use as the keys need to hit vigorously. The keys are backlit which allows you to use the laptop in dark. There’s no option to adjust the intensity of brightness. It can either turn ON or OFF. As the Acer has used white fonts, the keys are very much visible whether the illumination is active or not.
The trackpad is super smooth but made of plastic. It handles the swipes, taps, and gestures efficiently and delivers an overall solid performance. You may notice a hollow sound while vigorously taping on the surface.
The Aspire V15 Nitro features a 15.6-inch Full HD display with an astonishing 4K IPS Sharp panel. It is a wide gamut panel that covers 100% of the Adobe RGB gamut to provide perfect colors, sharpness, large viewing angles, and deep contrast. To reduce the glare, it uses a matte display cover.
The Aspire V15 Nitro features a Core i5-6300HQ processor, 8 GB of RAM, Nvidia 960M graphics, and dual storage. There is an SSD for the operating system and an HDD for the content. The advanced versions have up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and a Core i7 processor. The 8 GB of memory is quite enough for the basic tasks. It’s easy to handle everyday tasks like web browsing or watching multimedia content, including 4K clips. For audio, there are four speakers that enhance the overall experience. There are two fans for cooling that remain active all the time but the laptop stays cool and quiet while you deal with the casual activities. The V15 Nitro can also handle some serious loads like some professional software to a few of the latest games.
There’s a decently sized 52.5 Wh battery that fits into the laptop and makes it thinner and lighter than most of the 15-inch laptops. However, investing in a bigger battery would result in a bulky system and reduce portability. The powerful hardware and UHD screen allow the laptop to run for about 3 hours on a single charge.
The Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition is available at Laptop Factory Outlet in Singapore. If you are looking to purchase this Acer laptop you can visit the store or reach through call or message or email.
