Like many other gaming notebooks manufacturing companies, Acer Aspire VN7-791G-57RE was no exception in terms of weight. Its rate is 3 kg, which is certainly not conducive to frequently carry from place to place. Rather, it is a stationary version.

With respect to labeling, it is made white. On a black surface key all characters can be seen very clearly. By the way, the function buttons contain notations and blue, which is very convenient.
The keyboard layout is standard, so get used to something new or do not have to be reconstructed. All the keys are in the keyboard area, beyond just the power button. It would seem that all the usual, however, there is something that can not help Please note: backlight. She turns off or on using the [Fn] + [F9] and lit a spectacular bright red.
Touchpad Aspire V17 Nitro is not centered, and shifted to the left. It’s pretty big and besknopochny, so plenty of room for positioning. In addition, the area has a good touch sensitivity, and therefore do not have to repeat twice the same team. Of multi-touch gestures can be noted the implementation of the vertical and horizontal scrolling and zooming. You can turn off the touchpad keyboard shortcut [Fn] + [F7].
Acer Aspire VN7-791G-57RE NX.MQRER.003 works with the operating system Windows 8.1 64-bit version. As the processor chip is selected fourth-generation Intel Core i5-4210H with a clock speed of 2.9 GHz and 3 MB cache in the third level. This dual-core CPU is built on 22-nm technology, it supports the technology Turbo Boost, thanks to which the frequency can be increased up to 3.5 GHz. Energy-efficient processor is different, but in performance it at a height that allows you to cope well with demanding programs. Incidentally, this configuration is not very strong, because there are models with more efficient quad-chip Intel Core i7-4710HQ.
Intel Core i5-4210H complemented by integrated graphics Intel HD Graphics 4600. It’s a pretty good option to handle graphics in the performance of not only the simplest of tasks.

However, for games and other serious visual computing provides a powerful discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M. Its own memory is 2 GB standard GDDR5. For games it is generally a great option, because modern toys will go to high or maximum settings to the native resolution of the display. For example, in The Crew, Civilization: Beyond Earth or Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2014 will be playing with a frequency above 30 fps on high. In Alien: Isolation – all on ultra. It is worth noting that during the game the notebook heats up, so it is better not to keep on your lap.
