Acer has unveiled three new Aspire series devices, including two new high-performance notebooks and a desktop PC, all featuring Windows 10.
Packed with IPS technology and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics and high-performance 7th Generation Intel Core processors, the Aspire V Nitro Black Edition models (V Nitro 17 and V Nitro 15) and Aspire VX notebooks are ideal for gamers.
Aspire V Nitro Black Edition & Aspire VX
Both notebook series come with up to a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 4K entertainment and longer battery life to mobile devices.
The Aspire V 17 Nitro Black Edition featuring a 17.3-inch display is available with optional integrated Tobii eye-tracking hardware that when combined with touchpad gestures, makes the device more responsive through the use of eye movements. Users are able to more quickly and conveniently navigate across apps and programs with a simple glance. Gaming is also enhanced with eye tracking, creating deeper immersion and allowing gamers to aim, shoot and explore freely using their eyes in over 45 titles like Elite Dangerous, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and WATCH_DOGS 2.
Acer combined 7th Generation Intel Core processors to drive performance and the latest NVIDIA technologies, starting with up to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 6GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM1 and up to 16GB of DDR4 system memory, upgradable to 32GB using two soDIMM modules. They also come with a NVMe PCIe Gen 3 or SATA SSD1, and a HDD1 of up to 2TB capacity for additional storage.
The Aspire V Nitro incorporates Acer’s AeroBlade metal fan1 to release thermal exhaust, while 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.
Connectivity comes in the form of a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 for speeds up to 40Gbps and support for dual 4K video output simultaneously, two USB 3.0 ports (one featuring power-off USB charging), two USB 2.0 ports, and HDMI connection. It connects wirelessly through 2x2 802.11ac MU-MIMO technology, while a Gigabit Ethernet port is available for wired connectivity needs.
The new Aspire V Nitro notebooks come with a fingerprint sensor embedded in the top left corner of the Precision Touchpad. This enables Windows Hello, allowing a more secure password-free sign-in with a touch of the finger.
The high-quality entertainment experience is also driven by the audio technologies featured on the Aspire V Nitro, including four speakers tuned with Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony Plus technology.
The 5.5lbs (2.5kg) Aspire VX 15 also comes with up to a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor. The notebook also comes with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti1 graphics with GDDR5 VRAM (delivering up to 32GB/s bandwidth).
It offers up to 16GB DDR4 memory out of the box and can be user-upgradeable to a maximum of 32GB. Storage is provided by a 512GB SSD and 1TB HDD1.

Also, there’s no shortage of storage with up to a 3TB HDD and a 256GB SSD, and sports a Wireless Charging Deck for keeping users’ mobile devices powered up.
