Today the Taiwanese company launched the Acer Aspire V Nitro Series Notebooks along with Acer Predator 15 and 17 gaming notebooks at the IFA conference in Berlin. This series of laptops brings together both power and style onto a single device.
Specs of the Acer Aspire V Nitro Series Notebooks:
The Nitro Series Notebooks will be powered by the latest Intel Skylake sixth-gen core i7 and i5 mobile chips coupled with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and NVIDIA GTX960M graphics card. There will 15 and 17-inch models, which can support up to 4K screen resolution.
This series of notebooks from Acer will come with SATA III HDD/SSD/SSHD/storage options and USB 3.1 Type-C ports. The top-end “Black Edition” models will come with Thunderbolt 3, providing speeds of up to 40Gbps.
Regardless of model of the Acer Aspire V Nitro Series Notebooks selected by you, all of them will feature Qualcomm VIVE 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi, which can provide triple the download speed as compared to competing products. The “Black Edition” models will really be a beast because it comes with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX960M graphics chipset that has up to 4GB GDDR5 graphics RAM.
The Nitro series is less aggressive than the Predator gaming laptops; but the company promises a battery life of up to 8 hours. This is pretty decent for a high-powered notebook, but the battery life will be a little less for 4K gaming.

Acer Aspire V Nitro Series Notebooks will be launched at a starting price of $999 in North America this October for 15-inch notebooks, while the 17-inch models will be introduced at a starting price of $1099.
