The Acer Nitro 17 (AN17-41) has its advantages over the Acer Nitro 17 (AN17-71) and the Acer Nitro 17 (AN17-51). The main reason is the efficient and powerful Zen 4 CPUs. This combined with a 90.61Wh battery leads to 20 hours of Web browsing, or 9 hours and 5 minutes of video playback away from the charger. The Intel versions can only dream about such long autonomous work on a single charge. The second big pro of this laptop is the CPU temperature under load. In our case, the Ryzen 7 7840HS can maintain a high clock of~4.90 GHz in short and medium loads, while the temperatures are below 60°C – that’s great! Also, we can say that the notebook’s fans feel a bit quieter in any kind of usage compared to the Acer Nitro 17 (AN17-51). The chassis rigidity is adequate for the price class – the base is solid while the lid is a bit flexible. The keyboard is comfortable for typing or gaming and it has a 4-zone RGB backlight.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
