In short, the Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-54) is a decent non-expensive gaming laptop with a big 17.3″ screen that comes with a good keyboard and decent touchpad. It comes with great upgradability options for its price. At the end of the day, this laptop offers a lot for its money and you can configure it to a powerhouse if you choose the Intel Core i7-11800H and GeForce RTX 3070 (100W).
