Reviews for the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42-R6V0

85.1% Acer Nitro 5 (Ryzen 7 2700U, Radeon RX 560X, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
While Intel and Nvidia still call the shots in the high-end segment, AMD is quite well-positioned in affordable laptops. The best example is the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42 with a Ryzen 7 2700U and Radeon RX 560X, which can be purchased for less than 1000 Euros (~$1132). Do the competitors need to shiver? We will find out!
