Acer Nitro 5

 

The Acer Nitro 5 is an £899 gaming laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics chip and a 1080p screen. Can it step up to its more expensive rivals?

Solid Full HD gaming pace ; Attractive design ; Cheaper than the competition

So-so screen ; Single-channel memory ; Mediocre battery life

The £899 model I’ve reviewed, the Nitro 5 AN515-51, is powered by an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU. That’s the same as the bottom-spec Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming and Asus ROG STRIX GL553. All three can be upgraded to the more powerful GTX 1050 Ti,...

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 Gaming Laptop Review: Bulky Value

 

The Acer Nitro 5 represents a great balance between price and performance. It's built sturdy and handles heat and battery life like a champ. However, it can be heavy and unwieldy, and its looks aren't for everyone. Owners of the Acer Nitro 5 will be...

Excellent build quality ; Decent SSD speeds ; Outstanding battery life and cooling ; Good value

Polarizing aesthetics ; CPU bottlenecks synthetic performance ; GPU won't play games at max settings ; Better value alternatives available

The Acer Nitro 5 strikes a great balance between price and performance. However, it can be heavy and unwieldy, and its looks aren't for everyone.

Review: Acer Nitro 5 gaming notebook

 

I received an Acer Nitro 5 review unit for purpose of reviewing the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset and controllers. The Acer Nitro 5 features the latest 8th generation Intel processors, a minimum requirement for mixed reality VR playback and control.

There are many notable gaming notebooks in the market right now, but few are as affordable and competent as the Acer Nitro 5. Serious gamers will likely look elsewhere, but anyone who wants to dip their toes into next generation VR and PC gaming...

Acer Nitro 5 Spin review

 

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin tries mashing a gaming notebook into a 2-in-1 chassis, with mixed results.

Solid build quality ; Attractive gaming design ; Solid productivity performance ; A better display than similarly priced gaming notebooks

Mixed gaming performance given the GPU ; Mediocre battery life ; Keyboard lacks sufficient travel ; Large and heavy for a 2-in-1

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin has some serious aspirations. It wants to be both a gaming notebook and a productivity 2-in-1, and it certainly packs in the right components. Unfortunately, although it looks the part, it’s not a terribly competitive gaming...

Acer Nitro 5 (2018, AMD Ryzen)

 

If you think making an under-$1,000 gaming laptop is tough, try an under-$700 one: The AMD-based Acer Nitro 5 grabs the bottom rung of the 1080p gaming ladder and delivers decent value.

Low price. Satisfactory screen. SSD boot drive in a budget gaming laptop. Easy to add a second SSD or hard drive. Right on the edge of playable 1080p performance at high detail settings.

256GB SSD won't hold many games. Hard-to-read keyboard legends. Balky touchpad. Marginal battery life.

Bottom Line: If you think making an under-$1,000 gaming laptop is tough, try an under-$700 one: The AMD-based Acer Nitro 5 grabs the bottom rung of the 1080p gaming ladder and delivers decent value.
