Acer's new Aspire V 15 is a Windows 8.1 notebook with some metallic flourishes

Acer continues its new Windows 8.1 product announcements today with the introduction of the Aspire V 15. It's a conventional-looking notebook but with some metallic finishes that make it stand out.

Here's what Acer had to say about the Aspire V 15:

"The Aspire V 15 is adorned with an aluminum top cover imprinted using Acer's advanced nano-imprint technology to provide a luxurious and uniquely textured metallic finish. A silver metallic hinge provides a stylish contrast, leaving a visual impression inherited from the award-winning Aspire V Nitro. It has a backlit keyboard which not only adds a modern touch to its appearance, but is also practical for use in dimly lit environments."

Aspire V 15 will have Intel's fifth generation Core processors inside, along with the NVIDIA GeForce 940M series graphics chips. Users can add up to 16GB of RAM, along with either a 2TB hard drive or a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive. It will go on sale in the US in August for the starting price of $599.
