Today, Acer has announced 15-inch and 17-inch Aspire V Nitro series laptops. These laptops look slick and offer cutting edge performance for tackling things like photo and video editing or playing games and watching Blu-ray movies. For those looking for even more performance, Acer is also announcing a special Aspire V Nitro Black Edition.

The V Nitro series laptops feature a premium design with a cutting-edge look, sharp as a blade, and a slim profile measuring under 2.5cm.

The V Nitro series will be available in 15-inch and 17-inch models with beautiful Full HD IPS displays.
