    Well at least you can run it natively at 1080p, that's all it's going to be capable of anyway!

    What a stupid idea...a 4K display with a GPU that can't run it?

    Re: News - Acer launches Aspire V Nitro Black Edition 4K gaming laptop

    Am I reading this correctly? A GTX 860M for a 15.6" 4K screen??
    They should have put in a GTX 970m at least if they really gamers to play on this at 4k.

    But it does look like a nice laptop. And the price is strangely convincing...

    Looks pretty damn good. If you want to play games in 4k, don't buy a laptop?? You can't play in 4k at decent quality reliably with a single desktop GPU let alone laptop, so why you'd expect a laptop to manage it is beyond me.

    Clearly this is thoughtfully designed to allow increased productivity and a beautifully crisp display for normal work, plus allowing 4k films should you so wish, while letting you play games essentially natively, without dodgy scaling/aliasing effects, at 1080p - which realistically would otherwise be the resolution of this panel.

    If you don't like it for some reason, go off and buy one of the dozens of laptops offering a 1080p panel - there's no shortage.

    Honestly, I'm okay with 1080P in a laptop and WQHD is more than enough for most. Unless you're heaving around a 17" desktop replacement machine for graphics work, 4K screens are (IMO) overkill here. As others have commented, trying to run most modern games @4K is not going to be pretty on a laptop.

    As a plus, this is probably the most respectable looking 'gaming' laptop I've seen - I'm unlikely to buy a separate machine for work (where clients would see it), so something that doesn't look like a cross between concept art from Tron and a 14 year old Warhammer 40K player's wet dream is a welcome option.
