Well, the gaming laptops world updates almost every day, so research before deciding is always a good step. After research, I found this laptop to be the best in its category in terms of price point and its specs. It beats a lot of laptops, also 2000 range laptops. And there are not too many 17-inch range gaming laptops in the market. So if you are looking for an excellent gaming laptop with a larger 17-inch screen, with the newest Intel i7 CPU, beefy Graphics, and 1TB, yes 1TB (!!) SSD, this AN517-54-77KG is a really good value for its price, unless, of course, if you want to spend more.

Hardly the gaming laptop of your dreams, but this year’s Acer Nitro 5 has got a big screen and audio that are accurate if not exemplary. Its keyboard is probably the rough stone here, but you’re still able to get a perfect external gaming keyboard/mouse combo. The biggest concern with this laptop is the price. Normally, Acer Nitro is a budget line, but above one grand – even if you’re getting a 17-inch screen, this laptop is actually more than its 15.6-inch Acer Predator Helios 300 counterpart, with the same Core i7 processor, but a more powerful Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics card. It remains our Editors’ Choice for midrange gaming laptops. If you’re a hardcore gamer with hardcore demands, you better look elsewhere. But if you’re on a budget – or just settling into PC gaming – and you’re willing to compromise on a few things for a big screen, the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-77KG is definitely an option worth considering.
