Reviews for the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R1JZ

The Nitro 5’s screen is a bit on the weak side and the battery life is verging on the dismal, but other than that it’s hard to fault the Nitro 5 when it offers such stunning performance at such a low price. Make no mistake, the Nitro 5 redefines the sort of gaming performance you can expect for less than a thousand pounds. Combine that with the plethora of upgrade options, the surprisingly efficient and quiet cooling system and a pretty good keyboard, and the Nitro 5 is a surefire success.

You can see where Acer has cut some corners to keep the price down, with lots of improvement possible when it comes to the screen and the trackpad for example. Performance is good but not great, and you don't get as many lighting customisation options as you do on some of the rivals to the Nitro 5. Overall though, we think the compromises that this computer makes are compromises that plenty of users are going to be content with. When it comes to the business of actual gaming, the Acer Nitro 5 scores highly, and so we can't complain too much about anything else. Be sure you check out the various configurations and their corresponding prices, but if you want a value-for-money machine that's going to be able to cope with just about every game out there on the moment, this is a laptop that deserves a place on your shortlist.

The Acer Nitro 5’s price does mean that this laptop is rough around the edges. It’s a bit big and heavy, and it doesn’t have particularly good battery life or colour accuracy. The speakers are poor and it’s missing a couple of features. There’s still plenty to like, though. The RTX 3060 is a superb GPU for mainstream games and eSports, the processor is superb, and the Acer is cool and quiet. The keyboard is solid, and the price is right: at £1,149 or US$1,149, this laptop is cheaper than most of the rigs with this kind of hardware. And the sub-£1,000/US$1,000 model with a Ryzen 5 should still be decent for most people. If you can cope with those faults, you’ll find an effective and affordable machine here – a mainstream gaming option that won’t break the bank.
