[CES 2017] Back in the day, gaming laptops were notorious for being extremely bulky and heavy. This is because gaming laptops had to pack in sizable graphics cards as well as cooling to ensure that the laptop does not overheat. However thanks to technology, gaming laptops have become slimmer and sleeker devices (or at least some of them).
If you’re looking for such a laptop, Acer has announced the Aspire V Nitro at CES 2017. As you can see in the photos, the Aspire V Nitro is a pretty sleek-looking laptop as far as gaming laptops are concerned. Granted it’s no ultrabook, but it still looks sleek enough where you could slip it into a backpack and be done with it.
As for the hardware, gamers can customize the laptop to sport a 4K display. Under the hood we’re also looking at processors that are configurable up to a 7th generation Intel Core i processor, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and for the graphics, gamers can choose between an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.
Given its specs, it is not surprising that the Aspire V Nitro won’t come cheap, It is priced starting at $1,199 and will be available in February. Of course if you were to start picking some of the higher-end configurations, don’t be surprised if you end up way more than the base price.
