This review is from: Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-791G-792A Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: This laptop has a gorgeous screen; it set the standard for any other FHD screens I look for. It has a nice red backlight on the keyboard and the keyboard works well and is responsive. I do feel the trackpad is a bit iffy, but a mouse should fix that. Gamingwise, this thing is a beast, taking all my games at high and even ultra. The OS boot time is fast; 5 secs max; I hope it will work well with 10 also.
Cons: This thing can push cpu temp's up to 90, which is above my comfort zone, the gpu goes to 80 (running Cry3 on very high). It gets pretty hot right above the keyboard's placement (by the fold). The exhaust fans are on the back; I kinda wish they were on the side to go with my cooling pad but thats my prob.
there are several preloaded programs aka bloatware.
Other Thoughts: The screen is a beauty, it can run games very smoothly; however temperature is something to look out for. From what I've researched, it seems difficult to get inside to the laptop, but I'm not gonna try that atm.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It has kept up with EVERY game i have thrown at it at least at HIGH settings or above. They include:
Skyrim, BF4, Crysis 3, Shadow of Mordor...
It is pretty quiet also
Cons: It is slightly thick at the end; it ALMOST didnt fit within my case.
Other Thoughts: I look forward to seeing how this runs The witcherREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great with Crysis, relatively quiet
Cons: Sometimes the screen turns fuzzy when playing Crysis or other fps games ? Would help to know why. Barely fit into my case, literally by a centimeter.READ FULL REVIEW
