So, here we are again at the end of a review. I'm pretty sure you all know what's about to happen, so take a read or skip to the bottom to see the bottom line ranking.
Let's talk performance. The V Nitro first and foremost is a gaming system. It's being marketed as such, so it better perform as such. And indeed it does. We see decent gaming performance, though it could always be improved by including a faster GPU. However, with the GPU used, gaming performance is plenty for a system that is made to go on the road easily.
Portability of the V Nitro is quite good. It is only a 15.6-inch notebook, but it comes with the full keyboard, including number pad, and excellent performance. It has a sleek chassis, beautiful accents and detailing, and doesn't weigh a million pounds. The one place its portability suffers is battery life.
If you need to be away from an outlet for an extended period of time, you may have to look elsewhere. Our testing highlighted the small battery, and we received just 2 hours and 2 minutes of battery life. But don't let this deter you if you don't need incredible battery life. It makes up for is with its portability, something that would be hampered by a bigger battery.
The display is quite good. Glare is a non-issue, and the 1080p resolution at 15.6 inches is a high enough density that the sharpness is good. However, if you would like a higher res screen, Acer has a 4K V Nitro in the works.
Pricing on the V Nitro is also quite good. As we head into the holidays, many will be shopping for a new system, possibly for a loved one off at college or heading there shortly, or maybe for one's self. At just $1,199.99 MSRP, you're getting a pretty powerful laptop without the usual price tag.
We like the V Nitro a lot, but we're holding out to get the 4K model in our hands. The V Nitro also comes in various flavors, including a 17.3-inch model, as well as a model without an SSD, though we can hardly recommend that unless on a budget.
Keep your eyes out for our impending review of the 4K-equipped V Nitro. If you can't wait, however, the V Nitro reviewed here today is available now and would make an excellent companion.
