This is the new upgraded V15 with the Skylake processor. It may appear like other older V15’s but do not be fooled. This laptop’s processor was released this October, same with its mainboard chip. Unlike last models in the aspire series this laptop features ddr4 ram, the skylake architecture, and to my understanding a PCIe well-matched M. 2 slot. I have not gotten a chance to verify the M. 2 slot can really handle it and hold down 4 PCIe lanes but with Samsung’s new NVMe ssd sticks coming out next month I sure hope it can. Older iterations only supported sata3 m. 2 cards but the new architecture changes lots, signs are pointing to a PCIe upgrade. It also has a decent dedicated graphics card in it. Its not as bleeding edge as the rest of the laptop but it can play current gen games at high-normal graphics. Long story short, if your looking for something movable with the new hardware in it without totally breaking the bank this is a good bet. My one current complaint is the trackpad. The mouse button is integrated into it in a way that makes clicking throw off the cursor a bit. It may just take some to get used to but it’s a touch annoying now. (EDIT) It on occasion degrades to unusable quality. This is worth a star I believe. (EDIT) This seems to have an M keyed M. 2 slot. They should indeed have 4x pcie lanes available. (DOUBLE EDIT) Support says it’s only sata in spite of the M key. M. 2 slots are a bit confusing but I’d assume that it can not hit 4x speeds. (EDIT 2) some extra things were requested by the commenters. The battery life on this laptop is pretty good, I’d say it gets the rated four hours if your not using it too heavily. The laptop isn’t mod friendly.

This is an totally amazing laptop IF you have experience with computer parts ;). I will cover an area of Pros and Cons, then some suggestions (I did these myself). I bought this laptop for $799 throughout Black Friday sales. (i7-6700HQ, Nvidia GTX 960M, 15. 6& 34;)IMPORTANT UPDATE: Acer released a new BIOS update for this laptop 🙂 it now supports all four lanes for pcie x4 NVMe SSD’s are supported now Attached is a picture of the speeds I get using CrystalDisk. No more 1. 5 GB/s cap, it’s at the correct 2. 5 GB/s, MONSTER TO be honest but, I don’t notice any edge of my seat speeds that & 34;wow& 34; me, however wow is this laptop fast despite. Pros:-Nvidia GTX 960M. Come on, really? Can you get such a graphics card in a laptop for this low of a price? Not only that, it does not feel exactly like a gaming laptop because it is light too -Light for a gaming laptop (5. 1 pounds)-Sleek, nice backlit keyboard with a red line that lights up under the silver & 34;Acer Aspire V Nitro& 34; logo under the monitor-i7 Skylake processor. Newest generation processor so it is futureproof and gives you no worries about keeping it for a while. 6700HQ is one of the best processors you may be able to get for a lightweight gaming laptop and if you are on a budget looking for a nice simple gaming laptop, this is one of the nice features-IPS Monitor with 1920×1080 resolution-Comes with 8 GB of RAM, 2133 mHz DDR4. 8 GB is typically more than you need but there are exemptions for laptops because they do slow down-generally sounds great, not deafening at all Cons:-Not mod friendly. At all. HAHA but it is alright as long as you give yourself lots of time and the correct screwdrivers.

If you know what you’re in for this may be a great deal for you. Be aware of the following that could have largely changed my choice to buy this device. 1st off I’m a customer of some Acer laptops in my day and they have all functioned without failure at a reasonable price point which has kept me coming back. But, my major point of surprise with this one is the GPU will underclock itself on battery power. It’ll drop from 1200 Mhz to 400 Mhz core speed which will make most 3D games unplayable on battery power. This is hard coded into the the system and no way to change it (I have contacted Acer directly). I have had other Acer laptops with discreet Nvidia accelerators before and this is the 1st one I can not game on unless it is plugged into the wall. If you’ll only game with it plugged in I do recommend this machine. If you sometimes game on battery power like I you may want to decide something else. Pros:Pleasing aestheticsGood performance when plugged inNice displayCool KeyboardQuiet when not gamingGreat value for moneyCons:Somewhat deafening when gaming (not enough to annoy me)Impossible to game on battery powerCPU and GPU will somewhat throttle on gaming sessions because of heat (games still run smoothly)Power connector is somewhat weird (not easy to plug into system and looks flimsy)Intel VGA driver crashes and recovers on some game exits (can be Windows 10 issue)Swapping hard drives is a chore and feels like covers will break when removing them$.
