You'll get some of the best specs and features for your buck with Acer Aspire V3-771G-6814: Great picture on big 17.3 inch bright screen, fantastic sound quality, good gaming machine, very fast i5 processor at 3.2 GHz with turbo boost, easy multitasking with 8GB RAM and more..

It is a mid to high end laptop so certainly not just for checking emails, word processing and surfing the net. It feels solid, strong and well-built, definitely not cheap looking so it is designed to last you for at least a few years. Intel Core i5 processor at 2.6 GHz (up to 3.2 GHz with turbo boost) offers all the power you need. 8GB RAM will give you speed and the ability to do many things at the same time efficiently. You can save all your files- including multimedia in its big 750GB hard drive.

17.3 inch HD+ Widescreen LED-backlit Display big screen is a lot of fun to work or play the latest games on while you still have the portability of a light laptop, especially when you are doing multiple things at a time. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M graphics card is capable of helping you with the most demanding tasks- multimedia and the latest games. Sound is vibrant on Acer Aspire V3 with stereo speakers and Dolby Home Theater v4 system. Keyboard is quite cool with a nice design, separate multi gesture touchpad and numeric keypad. It works quietly despite all the power and manages the heat very well on demanding tasks.
