Acer Nitro 5 review

 

The Acer Nitro 5 is an affordable gaming laptop. Could it possibly be any good?

Solid gaming speeds ; Versatile AMD processor ; Decent physical design ; Reasonable keyboard

Underwhelming screen quality ; Poor battery life ; Won’t play some top-tier games

Inevitable compromises can be found in most areas of the Acer Nitro 5, but it remains a capable and affordable laptop with enough power to handle mainstream gaming and esports titles

Acer Nitro 5 review

 

A competent laptop for budget gamers

User controllable fans ; Good battery life ; Decent gaming performance for price

Too much travel on trackpad ; Thick display bezel ; Speakers produce painful highs

We could forgive the cheap plastic back cover, the basic keyboard, and the heavy weight. But for a gaming laptop, there’s hardly any excuse for the tacky trackpad and the average screen. Budget gamers will rejoice on the price, but hardcore ones will...

Acer Nitro 5 review: A disappointing Ryzen-powered gaming laptop

 

The Acer Nitro 5 is half the price of most gaming laptops, but don't expect those savings to pay off

A cheap gaming laptop

Slower than slow ; Unreliable touchpad ; Poor build quality

You have to be careful when shopping for a budget gaming laptop. If you spend half as much as a top-end notebook you might expect half the performance, but the Acer Nitro 5 doesn’t provide anything close. Not only does this budget gaming laptop fail to...

Acer Nitro 5 review

 

Good performance for the price – but this model isn't without faults.

Consistent, versatile performance ; Reasonable keyboard ; Extremely affordable

Underwhelming screen ; Poor battery life ; Immature design

AMD's hardware delivers enough computing ability to handle most mainstream work tasks, and the Nitro 5 has good versatility elsewhere – but its low price means that compromises are made.

Acer Nitro 5 review: A Coffee Lake-flavored gaming laptop that won't empty your wallet

 

The Acer Nitro 5 may be big and heavy, with so-so battery life and a fairly dim screen, but if you're shopping for a gaming laptop that handle AAA titles without breaking the bank, it delivers the goods.

Impressive graphics performance for the price ; Boasts Coffee Lake Core i5 CPU with Hyper-Threading ; Comfy keyboard with above-average speakers

Bulky and heavy ; Middling battery life ; Relatively dim, non-touch display ; Falls short of 60-fps visuals at maxed graphics settings

Budget gaming laptops don't get as much of a break as their mainstream cousins. They still face intense pressure to deliver. The Acer Nitro 5 is big and heavy, with so-so battery life and a fairly dim screen. But if you're shopping for a gaming laptop...

Acer's Nitro 5 laptop has gaming muscle on the cheap

 

Good performance and a low price will help you ignore its few flaws.

The Acer Nitro 5 is an understated gaming laptop that's well configured for the money. You can easily add more memory and storage. It has an ample port assortment, including USB 3.1 Type-C.

The laptop's build quality isn't the best, and some might be disappointed by the display's color performance.

Pure and simple, the Acer Nitro 5 is just a good deal with excellent mobile gaming performance for its wallet-friendly price.

Acer Nitro 5: gaming on a budget

 

A reliable budget gaming laptop, but it's no esports champ

Priced aggressively ; It can actually play games! ; Has a backlit keyboard with hardware monitoring software

Flimsy lid ; It’s flexible ; Upper portions of keyboard get warm ; It’s heavy

After all, if you’re sharpening your skills and eliminating foes in multiplayer games, does it really matter how much eye candy you have?

Acer Nitro 5

 

The Acer Nitro 5 is an inexpensive gaming laptop that promises a good gaming experience even at full HD resolution, but it cuts some corners on build quality and everyday computing performance.

Long battery life. Lighter than some 15-inch gaming laptops. Impressive graphics performance for the price.

Middling performance on everyday computing tasks. Lackluster build quality in some areas. Single-color keyboard backlight. Hard-to-read keys.

Bottom Line: The Acer Nitro 5 is an inexpensive gaming laptop that promises a good gaming experience even at full HD resolution, but it cuts some corners on build quality and everyday computing performance.

The Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop Review: Absolutely AMD - Ryzen Plus Polaris

 

In the last year we've taken a look at a couple AMD Ryzen APU-powered (Raven Ridge) laptops, and while these laptops have had their ups and downs in terms of battery life, one area where AMD has never shied away from is total performance. Even in a...

Even with the shortcomings, the Acer Nitro 5 is still a great value. The AMD powered model is even more so. At $669.99 as a starting price, it’s well under most Ultrabooks in terms of cost, yet delivers far more performance. And with the 256GB SSD...
