Budget Gaming Laptop with some issues
 
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-53-55G9 gaming laptop packs some good features inside it at a very good price, but also has some issues that hold it back. I fall on the side of recommending this laptop, barely. I will start with the features I liked. The Intel 8th generation CPU is very powerful and handled everything I threw at it very well. I expected nothing less. The GPU is also quality, and it is nice to see a nVIDIA 10 series dedicated graphics card at this price in a gaming laptop. Games, includin...

Fantastic laptop, for the sale price
 
This laptop has honestly blown my expectations away. Build quality is very solid for the price, it feels like a premium item. The screen doesn't have much flex and the chasis feels sturdy during use (you can force a bit of flex, but it's not a problem). The hardware performs as expected and I don't really have many complaints. As far as laptops go, I'm coming off a 2012 MSI GE60, which was not a very good laptop. Let's get into a detailed breakdown: Display The display is arguably the weak...

Sleek, Edgy Design, Very Fast – Great Value!
 
This brand-new Acer Nitro 5 is a huge step forward from prior gaming laptops offered by Acer. It is a superb combination of technology and functionality which will outperform almost all existing laptops thanks to its incorporation of a new generation of Intel CPU and Nvidia graphic processing units. Visually, the Nitro 5 is a stunning design with a beautiful slate black body containing subtle angles, beveled corners and elegant metallic red accents. The cover is not just slate in color, it al...

Fast, great screen, but some keyboard flaws
 
Acer's new Nitro 5 gaming laptop is quite the speed demon, more than capable of doing almost anything you want to do with it, from gaming (naturally) to streaming music and video to routine stuff like web surfing and email. It is driven by Intel's new 8th generation Core i5 chip, a true quad core chip with Turboboost, which can automatically increase performance when its needed. Even better, this chip is hyperthreaded, which means it can mimic an 8 core chip. That considerable horespower, comb...

A Great “Budget-Minded” Gaming Laptop
 
On the surface (no pun intended), the 2018 version of Acer’s Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop feels different. That would be, of course, due to the brushed aluminum lid, whereas most other manufacturers are still using 100% plastic cases. Mind you, the remainder of the case is plastic, but is quite sturdy…again, moreso than most other “budget” laptops. With the latest trend in LED backlit keyboards, Acer doesn’t disappoint. The entire keyboard has a pleasant red backlighting, while the W, A, S, & D keys ha...

Don't Even Bother - A Cautionary Tale
 
I really wanted to like this laptop, but it has given me nothing but problems since I got it. First, it was the freezing. Every so often the laptop would just become unresponsive, no matter the program I was running, causing me to have to force shutdown. Then, I started noticing that the framerate in games would randomly drop regardless of what was on screen. After deciding to fix this, I did some research and found that the CPU was running dangerously hot (in the 90s Celsius), which caused thro...

Not great for gaming.
 
Bought this for playing World of Warcraft when I travel. The frame rate is very poor. It gave me a headache after about 15 minutes. It also hangs when performing some common Windows tasks. Look elsewhere if you intend to play high-end games.

I got the dud
 
At the time of purchase this laptop had 4.6 out of 5 stars and 50 reviews with 98% would recommend to others. So I thought this was going to be a sure thing. Wrong. This fiasco started off bad and got worse. Cortana came on at about half max volume during the initial setup and startled me with a hideous crackling voice. I was hoping that was just my imagination or just audio in need of a driver update. Nope. The audio continued to be mildly to moderately crackly. The webcam didn't work at all. T...

Why so much bloatware?
 
This is a great looking laptop with some nice specs, but I was let down by a couple of items. Too much bloatware, the mouse pad feels very cheap and likely to break, and the laptop is pretty heavy. It did however start up and seem to do much better after I uninstalled all the junk software that was pre-installed. I am excited that the ram and ssd can be easily upgraded to keep this laptop relevant for a few extra years. I wasn't blown away, but expectations need to correlate with the reality tha...
