The Acer 17.3" Aspire V Nitro Black Edition Gaming Notebook is powered with quad-core performance by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor. This notebook is designed to deliver data quickly with a 256GB SSD and render 3D textures smoothly with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card. Additionally, 16GB of DDR4 memory allows for running multiple applications at the same time.

Acer has equipped the Aspire V Nitro notebook with a 17.3" IPS screen that provides wide viewing angles as well as accurate colors. This screen has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. You can also output detailed visuals through the notebook's HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 ports to your external monitors. Moreover, the Thunderbolt 3 port features a USB Type-C interface and daisy-chaining support.

To hold your photos, videos, and other files, the Aspire V Nitro comes with a second storage drive that offers 1TB of storage. Aside from storage, it is outfitted with one USB 2.0 port and a USB 3.0 port, so you can connect printers and scanners to this notebook. Accessing the Internet can be accomplished utilizing a Gigabit Ethernet port or 802.11ac Wi-Fi module. Once connected to the Internet, it lets you video chat due to an integrated 720p webcam, speakers, and microphone. Other notable features include a DVD writer, SD card reader, as well as Bluetooth 4.0.

Quad-Core 6th-Gen Skylake Intel Core Performance
The Acer Aspire V Nitro is powered by a 6th generation Skylake Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor. Its quad cores can reach a stock speed of 2.6 GHz and can be increased up to 3.5 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 6MB L3 cache, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to push the quad cores up to eight virtual cores for quick and efficient multitasking.
17.3" Full HD IPS Display
The Acer Aspire V Nitro has a 17.3" Full HD display with a 1920 x 1080 native resolution. You'll be able to experience sharp text, detailed picture quality, and vibrant colors. Since the screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, you'll be able to play 1080p Full HD content without letterboxing. IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels also provide better color reproduction and viewing angles compared to standard TN (Twisted Nematic) panels.
Thunderbolt via USB 3.1 Type-C
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Gigabit Ethernet & 802.11ac Wi-Fi
The Acer Aspire V Nitro features Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi so that users may access network connectivity using wired and wireless technologies.
Secure Digital (SD) Card Reader
The built-in SD card reader will allow users to download content from the digital still or video cameras.

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.
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.
