Acer Aspire, Chromebook, and Nitro systems are on sale for President's Day
Not to be outdone by Dell, Acer will be slashing prices off a number of its own laptops and monitors in honor of President's Day weekend. Sales will last until February 23 with many of the online deals already available.
Notable offers include the Aspire 7 A717 gaming laptop with GTX 1060 graphics for $920 USD and the Nitro 5 AN515 with Ryzen 5 2500U APU for $580 USD. Last generation GTX gaming laptops have been dropping in price and the Aspire 7 is no exception. We recommend avoiding the Aspire 3 A315 with the AMD A9 SoC, however, as this particular processor is old and extremely slow even for basic word processing and video streaming tasks.
While Acer's sale looks to be smaller than Dell's, it is at least easier to follow than Dell's convoluted approach. Check out our full reviews on some of these laptops first before committing to a purchase.
