But it’s when it comes to playing games or delivering a great entertainment experience that the Aspire V3 shows its true nature.

Meant to satisfy even the most demanding users, the Aspire V3 provides an outstanding graphics performance thanks to GeForce GTX GT760Mwith 2GB DDR5 VRAM, or to NVIDIA GeForce GT750M with 4GB DDR3 VRAM, that ensure the best combination of crisp high definition imagery and truly smooth playback of even the fastest moving images. The stunning graphics is paired with immersive crystal clear audio courtesy of Dolby Surround Home Theatre v4 for an exceptional performance whether playing games or watching a movie.

The Aspire V3 is equipped with 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors that deliver outstanding performance - even with the most demanding games and applications - as well as balanced power consumption. In addition to the 17” screen, users can play a game or display contents on an even bigger screen with the HDMI output.

Aspire V5 series -Because One Size Doesn’t Fit All

The new V5 notebooks come in three display sizes - 39.6 cm (15.6”), 35.6 cm (14”) and 29.5 cm (11.6”) – to meet different lifestyles and performance needs. The 15.6” and 14” models are available both with or without touch screens and include a full size keyboard with optional backlighting and key caps 8 percent larger (15mm) than previous generation V5 notebooks. The 11.6" notebook integrates the same size keyboard as on a typical 13.3" model to optimize the typing experience.

The Aspire V5 notebooks are available with either high definition (1366 x 768) or full high definition (1920 x 1080), including the option of non-glare finish on the screen to reduce the distraction caused by light reflections (only available on 15.6'' models). The full high definition panel comes with IPS technology, providing amazingly vibrant images and a wide viewing angle. These models also include four speakers and are supported by Dolby Home Theatre for crystal clear surround sound.

Selected models are equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GT7XXM series discrete graphics for fast casual gaming and rich responsive multimedia. To meet a wide variety of computing needs, they include a range of the latest generation Intel processors.

V7 Series Ultrabooks - When Performance is Critical

The new V7 Series Ultrabooks share the same stylish and thin design of the V5 models, but add a “silky touch” finish on the bottom. In addition, the V7 models are equipped with a choice of latest generation processors from Intel, up to Core™ i7, and with either NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M or NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 720M as graphics options, enabling customers to create HD video 2 times faster or edit photos in half the time, on top of delivering a better gaming experience.
