Acer Nitro V 15 (ANV15-51) review – successful symbiosis between the Aspire and the Nitro series

As you may already know, the Nitro series devices are budget-oriented laptops that offer a good bang for the buck (or at least in most cases). These machines are also very popular and that’s why Acer is trying to manufacture even more affordable devices. Their new creation is called the Acer Nitro V 15 (ANV15-51).

Interestingly, this one looks like an Aspire notebook with Nitro treatment. Of course, it’s not just a rebranded notebook with a bit different look. You can use the handy Acer NitroSense app for advanced system monitoring, fan control, and for applying different performance presets according to your needs. The gadget also comes with a bit newer 13th Gen H-series CPU options (that are based on the Alder Lake architecture). Things are looking good in the GPU department – the most powerful graphics chip is the GeForce RTX 4050 (Laptop).

You choose between two 1080 display variants – the base one has a 144Hz refresh rate while the optional unit boasts 165Hz. The I/O of the laptop is decent and it includes a Thunderbolt 4 connector and you get Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. Overall, all looks good. Let’s see if the collaboration between the Nitro and the Aspire series is successful.
