Avoid these: their Thunderbolt ports run at half their rated speed
There is no Thunderbolt 3 version for the V13 Nitro. Whoever added it to the list, added it falsely or even Acer themselves aren't mentioning it on purpose, which would be stupid. They are mentioning Thunderbolt for the V15 Nitro models for example -> https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.G6TAA.001
There is the Acer Travelmate though which also has Thunderbolt 3 and is near the cost of the V13, it's just not that fancy looking. For example this one -> https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/professional-model/NX.VCSAA.001 . There are lower specced models than the linked one for about 700€ which also have Thunderbolt 3.
Thinkpad W541 - i7 4910MQ - 28 GB RAM - K2100M - GTX 970 Akitio Thunder2 eGPU
There is a nice compatibility list for Kanex Thunderbolt 3 adapter which can be used as a guide when choosing TB3 product.
This list also includes non laptop host.
