The 15.6" Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition Notebook from Acer is built to handle graphic-intensive and multimedia applications. It is also well suited for general everyday tasks such as browsing the Internet, writing documents, and video chatting. Powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-4720HQ quad-Core processor and 8GB of DDR3 RAM, the Aspire V15 Nitro ensures smooth multitasking and quick access to frequently used files and programs. For additional computing power, the processor can be adjusted to 3.6 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.

The 15.6" Full HD IPS display has a 1920 x 1080 native resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio that supports 1080p content without letterboxing. IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels offer better color reproduction and viewing angles than standard TN (Twisted Nematic) panels. It's driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM and delivers sharp, clear pictures and fast gaming performance. You can also output video and HD audio via the HDMI port with HDCP support.

For long-term storage of your files, the Aspire V15 Nitro has a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive. If you want to add external storage, peripherals, and more, it is equipped with three USB 3.0 Type-A ports. Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet provide wireless and wired Internet connectivity while Bluetooth 4.0 technology enables you to connect additional compatible peripherals such as headsets, keyboards, and mice. Other integrated features include an SD card reader, a 720p webcam, a microphone, and four stereo speakers. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
