Reviews for the Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN515-42-R6V0

Acer Nitro 5 Hands-on, Quick Review: Most Affordable Gaming Notebook?
Source: Unbox English
Obviously trying to get a gaming PC to an affordable price point has its pitfalls, and the Nitro 5 has some obvious ones that need to be addressed. 4GB of RAM in a gaming machine is less than ideal and is one of the biggest bottlenecks in the notebook. Thankfully additional RAM isn’t that expensive (usually around 2.5K per stick). You can also add an SSD drive to the notebook if you need faster performance for selected games.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
