Good for the price, a couple of glitches
 
The Nitro 5 case is brushed plastic, kind of looks like the matte finish on a Grand Piano, pretty classy and it comes with a Folio case to prevent the case from getting scratched. The build quite firm (non-ultrabook), the lid (screen) has hardly any give and the base is very solid, making it a firm typing platform. The screen is a IPS HD (1920x1080) panel, with what Acer calls ComfyView, which to me is a matte finish a which is not exactly crisp, but very bright. Viewing from any angle is excell...

Nice entry level gaming machine
 
I already have an Acer Predator 17” gaming laptop, but the thing is huge and not really portable. I wanted a new laptop that I could use for some light gaming, have around a 15” screen “14” and less are just too small for me”, and not cost an arm and a leg. This new Nitro 5 seems to fit the bill, “almost”. Unpacking and first thoughts: The laptop comes well packaged in a closed cell foam frame, “most do anymore” along with the power supply, paperwork and surprisingly a nice neoprene sleeve. ...

Great Budget Gaming Laptop
 
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42-R5ED is a solidly low-mid range gaming laptop. It packs enough power to handle most E-sports titles (CS:GO, Overwatch, LoL) at high settings. It also has no problem with games like Fortnite and Minecraft at high settings (and with good FPS), as well as AAA titles at med-high settings (with average, but playable FPS). Specs Processor – AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 2500U with Vega 8 Graphics - CPU 4C/8T @ 2.0 GHz with boost to 3.6 GHz Graphics – AMD Radeon RX 560X 4GB [Discret...

Bought for our 11 year old son, not even good enough quality for him. Frames per second was running at 2. Wish I could give it a zero

Great Entry Gaming Notebook.
 
Where to begin? Well the Acer - Nitro 5 is good entry Gaming Notebook PC. It comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U APU with a dedicated 4GB Radeon 560X GPU. This brings some variety and certainly some power in the portable Arena. As one who has used both Intel and AMD in their PC’s I can say with certainty that if Intel hadn’t started putting AMD GPU tech into their Notebooks for Integrated Graphics solutions they were quickly going to lose a lot of ground. The other big thing here is the CPU it...

Capable hardware held back by drivers
 
For the performance you get at this price point In my opinion this is the best budget gaming laptop you can get. The RX 560X is between a GTX 1050 and GTX 1050Ti. The Ryzen 5 2500u is a 4 core 8 thread CPU that is very capable without being power hungry. This translates to better battery life. I managed to get around 5-6 hours of usage before needing to plug in. This was a mixed usage of doing Windows updates, YouTube and web browsing. For gaming expect this to drop to around 2-3 hrs from a full...

Good budget gaming laptop
 
This is the entry level offering of this laptop series, so it's not going to be top-notch when it comes to gaming, but it does a pretty decent job for the casual gamer like myself! It implements switchable graphics, which can be confusing for some that aren't technically aware of this. With switchable graphics, you basically have a lower-powered on-board graphics chip, AMD Vega 8, which is fine when you're doing anything that doesn't require lots of 3D horsepower, and this helps a lot with batte...

Terrible Hardware
 
It worked great for about a week, but eventually began randomly losing internet connection for large chunks of time. Despite hours trying to fix this, the issue never really resolved, but I could work around it. Then it eventually decided it needed to "Repair Disk". It didn't get stuck in the infamous loop, thankfully, but afterwards the internet flat out refused to connect and the laptop slowed down dramatically. It was like I was running a 5-year-old machine that hadn't been cleaned for the...

Excellent way to get into PC gaming for less
 
PC gaming has come so far, and thanks to this you can now get decent gaming laptops for a lot less without sacrificing great performance and specs. Thats where the Acer Nitro comes in. At only $670 (sometimes less due to sales) you get a very nice entry level gaming laptop to get you going into PC gaming. In the box you get the Acer Nitro laptop, power adapter, and a sleeve. Set up is pretty straight forward and is like setting up most other Windows 10 laptops. The laptop itself has an incr...

Slow, Slow, Slow and did I mention slow?
 
I was sold this computer from a best buy rep under the promise it will work well with photoshop and all the basic needs a laptop will perform. Within the first week of purchase, loading the internet became a hassle. Froze several times, even had to restart the computer multiple times. Photoshop would take minutes sometimes though lagging constantly. Extremely frustrating when your working and it constantly freezes. The camera is extremely blurry and slow as well. The only real pluses of the comp...
