Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition


Dec 2, 2013
Time for a new laptop.. leaning towards the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-791G-792A. Anyone have one? Any better options out there under 1200$? I was trying to decide between this or the ASUS ROG laptop, leaning towards the Acer. Any input is appreciated, thanks.


For just $100 over your budget, you get a tremendously improved gaming experience with the Gigabyte P55W:

Where the GTX 960M in the Aspire V17 Nitro resembles a desktop GTX 750 Ti, the GTX 970M in this Gigabyte laptop is leaps and bounds faster - in the order of 50% at times - and is similar in performance to a desktop GTX 960. It also comes with a Broadwell quad-core i7 CPU, which consumes less power and is faster than equivalent Haswell i7s.
