Acer Nitro 5 Review: “Good performance at a fair price”

The Acer Nitro 5 is an entry-level gaming laptop with a price point of around the four-figure mark (depending on configuration), designed for high performance in games at 1080p with minimum hassle. This is a plug-and-play situation; set up your new laptop, tweak your settings with the streamlined NitroSense software, and get straight into a game on what could be the best gaming laptop for you.

It’s not going to excite any hardcore gamers, but no laptop under two grand will. For the asking price (which has already been reduced to around $900 / £850 at some outlets), you get great HD gaming performance packed inside a system that is also capable of productivity tasks, whether that’s video editing on the 17.3-inch screen or 3D rendering tasks with the dependable RTX 2060 GPU. It might not run the static machines on best gaming PC lists that close, but for a mix of portability, power,  performance, and price, it’s always been a promising contender.
