Bottom Line

A powerful gaming laptop that will run most new games on medium to high settings, just stay close to a power outlet as the battery life is about half the advertised time.

The Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-592G-71ZL is a 2015 bestselling 17.3-inch that received positive reviews for its super-fast processor, generous RAM, ample storage and decent NVIDIA graphics chip. Reviewers also praised the large FHD display and the crystal clear audio. The only shortfalls were the less than advertised battery life, only lasting about half the advertised time, and the masses of pre-installed bloatware. All in all this is a powerful gaming laptop that is well worth the investment.
