Conclusion: Acer Aspire V15 VN7-591G-73Y5 (NX.MTDAA.001) Nitro Black Edition is a great powerful gaming laptop with a Full HD screen, GTX 960M and Intel HD 4600 graphics cards. 1TB is large enough to accommodate quite a few movies, photos and songs and would be sufficient for most computer customers but the fact that it comes with 5400rpm speed can affect the performance a little- when you’re opening files so replacing it with a Solid State Drive is an option and will not void the warranty but if you need the item to be serviced for whatever reason it should have the original hard drive on it. The large 8GB memory will enable easy multitasking and up to 32GB RAM is supported for those that need more. 4 hour battery life is not very long but this is a common problem for many gaming laptops due to heavy graphics. Intel i7-4720HQ is a very fast and powerful processor with a Passmark benchmark score of 8287 as of today, placing it in the ‘High End CPUs’ category and Thermal Design Power of 47 watts. As the NVIDIA GTX 960M graphics card is somewhere between mainstream and high end, most 2013 and 2014 games like Tomb Raider and Dota 2 can be played fluently at higher settings and resolutions (at more than 50-60 frames per second, without needing any compromises) but those more demanding games of 2014/2015 like Crysis 3, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Battlefield 4 will require a little lower settings and dropped frame rates of 30 or so and this is all great considering the price level of this beautifully stylish and modern gaming PC laptop.
