Gaming laptops are known for being nice, but also quite pricey. Acer got that memo and has decided to outfit the base model of its new Nitro V gaming laptop with the right specs to keep the price down but the power up. At its cheapest, the Nitro V is only $800.
You have the option for going with either a Radeon RX550 GPU and a choice of either an AMD A10, A12 or FX CPU for the baseline, or you can throw the extra cash down for a massive GTX 1050 Ti GPU along with a current-generation (Kaby Lake) Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. RAM can be maxed out to a whopping 32GB DDR4 variant. Specific models of the Nitro V will feature SSDs with capacities as high as 512GB, along with an additional HDD for massive storage.
Beyond that, here’s where the features become standard:
- HDMI 2.0 up to 90Hz
- 15.6′ 1080p IPS Display
- Dolby Audio Premium
- Acer TrueHarmony
- Acer Coolboost Technology
- USB 3.1 Type-C (1 port)
- USB 3.0 (1 port)
- USB 2.0 (2 ports)
The Acer Nitro V 2017 family will hit shelves in July in North America and China, once again starting at the price of $800.
