Aspire V 17 Nitro 4 Acer today announced the new Aspire V 17 Nitro gaming laptops with Intel RealSense 3D camera. The Intel RealSense 3D camera includes a conventional camera, an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. This camera enables users to respond to natural movement in three dimensions like 3D Scanning, interaction with games, open web pages or navigate applications without even touching the notebook’s keyboard or mouse.

Apart from the special camera, Acer’s Aspire V 17 Nitro series also offers superior performance, multimedia and entertainment features in a sleek and elegant design.

Acer V 17 Nitro notebook models include large 17.3-inch Full HD displays1 with IPS technology and are powered by a 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ Quad Core processor and the Nvidia® GeForce GTX 860M graphics with up to 4GB DDR5 VRAM for full-tilt performance and smooth game play, and up to16GB of memory. Speedy 128GB or 256GB solid state drives2 and up to 1TB of hard disk storage provide fast wake times and rapid access to files, movies, songs and photos.

It also incorporates the newest 802.11ac wireless specification for fast and more reliable Internet connections 3. The ultrafast 802.11ac wireless networking standard is up to twice as fast as the previous generation spec (802.11n) and increases network speed, range and reliability, enabling more people to use different wireless devices and simultaneously stream content with less interference. Dual wireless antennas supporting both 2.4GHz and 5GH frequencies enable speedy Internet connections.

To keep the notebook running cool and at optimum performance, V 17 Nitro models include Acer DustDefender, a unique dust removal system that uses a high-speed fan with thin metal blades to remove dust build-up, improve heat dissipation and minimize noise.

Four built-in speakers (8W total output) combine with Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater™ for powerful surround sound for gaming, movies and music. Various models in the V 17 line include either a Blu-ray Disc drive for a crystal clear movie experience or an 8X DVD Super Multi Double Layer Drive.
