Acer Nitro 5 Review

The variant we are talking about comes with AMD Ryzen 5 4600h and GTX 1650. This laptop comes with a 15.6” full HD wide LED screen, 8GB RAM (single stick included/one slot free) 256GB SSD.

You can expand the RAM up to 32GB and The product comes at an amazing price of $670 ($699 inc taxes). This laptop’s display was first wrongly described on Best Buy as 120Hz which made customers jump on the deal, later it turned out to be an error both by Best Buy and Acer. This version has a 60Hz display.

The good thing is, still people did not decide to return the product. They kept it and that happily.

Because, not only the specs of this laptop are worth, but Acer has improved a lot in the build quality and design of the product.

We do not have the review unit yet to tell you the exact build quality of the product, but recently a youtube channel, “OWNorDisown” made a video reviewing the same variant we are talking about. You can watch the video below:

Looking at that review, we can say that the laptop is really good. The build quality is surely improved compared to the last GEN machine, WIFI 6 brings great value to the wallet, and the cooling system of the laptop is just great.

Thanks to the Nitro Sense software, you can control the fans of both GPU and CPU. If you pushing the GPU and CPU to its limits having fans at max, the laptop ran even cooler than some premium machines. CPU was under 70c and GPU was somewhere between 60-62c.

Important Info

Do not go on the ratings of the product on BestBuy since most of the people rated it low because of the wrong description of the screen refresh rate (120Hz) which is fixed now.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a gaming laptop with a minimum budget, there cannot be anything better than this one. A laptop that has a cool and low powered CPU performs better than i7 9750, a GPU that plays most of the games on medium to high settings at 60 FPS, great build quality with good cooling fans and software, possibility of upgrading RAM up to with one slot being empty 32GB and two slots (M.2 & 2.5″) for memory upgrade.

Looking at the price of this product ($699 inc taxes), its more than a deal.
