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 Spin NP515 (i7-8550U, GTX 1050) Convertible Review


Display upgrade vs. SSD downgrade. On the outside, the Acer Nitro 5 Spin is easily recognizable as the gaming version of the Acer Spin 5. However, trying to find other differences between the two convertibles is more difficult - there do not seem to be...

better display than the "normal" Acer Spin 5 ; good system performance ; very good gaming performance for current games ; high-quality case with good workmanship ; stable hinges for the convertible ; "WASD" keyboard for gamers ; fingerprint reader...

slow SD card reader ; loud fans under full load ; slow SSD ; no USB 3.1 Type-C Gen2, only Gen 1 ; no Thunderbolt ; no Ethernet port, despite being a gaming laptop ; duration of keyboard backlighting cannot be changed ; keys feel cheap and plasticky,...

After the Spin 5, Acer has now produced another convertible - and this one is aimed at occasional gamers. However, apart from the slightly modified design that now features red elements, it is not immediately clear whether further changes have been...

Acer Nitro 5 Spin review


Get flexible gaming and don't forget to wear yoga pants

Touchscreen is a nice add ; Intel 8th Gen is good for multitasking ; Brick-hard built quality ; Loud speakers ; Slim design

Cramped up function keys and number pad ; Fingerprint scanner is laughable ; Gaming expectations are as shallow as Big Boss contestants

A really interesting laptop with nice bonus features, sadly none of them help to improve gaming

Acer Nitro 5 Spin Review


The Acer Nitro 5 Spin looks good and performs well in day-to-day tasks but is not meant for gaming

Well built ; Relatively lightweight ; Good keyboard

GPU Bottleneck ; Heating issue ; Display could have been better

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin is a good overall laptop, but is not suited for gaming or heavy duty tasks.
