80% Acer Nitro 5 Spin Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Acer Nitro 5 Spin is a power-packed 2-in-1 gaming laptop. Right now, there’s nothing else quite like it in India, which is why it commands a slight premium of Rs. 91,990 for the top-end model. If you’re not going to travel a lot with your laptop and will be using it mostly on a desk, then you can find gaming models with slightly better specifications from Dell, Lenovo, and even Acer, at around this price. The Nitro 5 Spin is available through the company's authorised stores but you can also find it on Flipkart. The online price fluctuates quite a bit, and we once saw this very model going for as little as Rs. 83,990 during our review period.

Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN515-51-54YF

If gaming on the go is your cup of tea, there are plenty of devices on the market to choose from, but usually, those options are not very budget friendly. However, with Acer’s Nitro lineup, users would still be able to game on the go while keeping some change in their wallet. One of the devices in this lineup is the Aspire Nitro 5, a pretty good choice, although it does have some flaws. Checking what the notebook is loaded with, it is Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ processor, which is pretty much standard in notebooks of this class, 32 GB of memory, more than you could ever need, a combination of a 512GB SSD and 1TB of storage, and, last but not least, the Nvidia GTX1050Ti. Aesthetics-wise, the Aspire Nitro 5 commands a gaming look with its black and red accents that are all too common in the gaming-notebook market, aside from a few exceptions. In terms of chassis design, the Aspire Nitro 5 is primarily constructed out of brushed metal-like plastic, which gives it the solid and rigid feel expected of a notebook of this caliber. Overall, the Aspire Nitro 5 is not really in your face, which means it can still suit certain stricter environments, such as work or school. One thing to note here is that the Aspire Nitro 5 is on the heavy side at 2.5 kg, meaning you either have to have a sturdy bag or a strong shoulder if you decide to lug this around on a daily basis. But generally, the notebook remains practical by all means. Regarding IO, the Aspire Nitro 5 is pretty standard with 3 USB Type-A ports, 1 USB Type-C Gen-1 port, full-size HDMI, LAN, a card reader and an audio jack, which is plentiful for a notebook of this size.

Jumping over to the input devices, the Aspire Nitro 5 generally does well. Its keyboard, with well-spaced keys and decent key travel, does not feel mushy, which is good, although this might irk hardcore typists as it does not have a solid click to it. It should also be mentioned that the keyboard is backlit. As for the touchpad, it is pretty much half and half, depending on the user, as an integrated clickpad and touchpad leads to accuracy issues, not to mention having actual click buttons is always better. At least the clickpad is smooth enough for fingers to glide without resistance. Moving over to the screen, the Aspire Nitro 5 is equipped with an IPS FHD panel that is about average in terms of brightness and color vibrancy. Viewing angles are what they should be on an IPS panel, however, if you would like to create media content on the side, you will be disappointed to learn that the IPS panel only scores about 69% on the sRGB spectrum. Then again, you get what you pay for. While battery life is never a topic of conversation when it comes to gaming notebooks, it is worth mentioning that the built-in battery seems to be on the lower spectrum of things. It allows for only 1 hour and 10 minutes of intense gaming or about 3 hours and 30 minutes on Wi-Fi. For gaming on the go, at least some decent battery life would be nice, but as it is, the Aspire Nitro 5 is a reasonable offer, as long as your expectations are set right.

80% Acer Nitro 5 Review: The Gaming Laptop That Matches Desktop Pricing
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
People occasionally ask me for advice when they want to get a new computer, some even come up to me and ask if this gaming laptop is good or that gaming laptop is good and my usual reply is, “will you be always outside playing games or just at home?” We all know that for the price you are paying for a gaming laptop, that amount of money could get you a gaming desktop PC which in fact, will run the game much better than an expensive gaming laptop. However, Acer has blurred the line between gaming laptop specs and price with the Acer Nitro 5 because, for the price tag of RM3,299, you will be getting similar specs as what you would spend when paying that same amount to get a gaming desktop computer. However, being reasonably priced gaming laptop is one thing, let’s dive in and see what will you get with this laptop.

The Nitro 5 by Acer is definitely a gamer’s muse as it offers great performance in a sleek design. The combination and synchronization of the processor and the graphics card is excellent. The Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor gives an additional boost to run high graphics games without breaking a sweat. So If you are looking for a lightweight, rugged and powerful gaming laptop, the Nitro 5 makes a very strong case for itself!

Acer Nitro 5 review

Not everyone can afford a monster gaming laptop, so it’s great to see Acer delivering 1080p performance at a reasonable price. The Nitro 5 might not be the prettiest or lightest laptop around, but if you want high frame rates, those are sacrifices you’ll have to make.

Acer Nitro 5 review (AMD configuration) – absurdly cheap AMD-powered gaming laptop
Source: Laptop Mag English
Finally, the cooling system seemed to have done its job pretty well even during our long and heavy stress test – neither the CPU or the GPU throttled while the latter was running surprisingly cool. We are not sure, however, if the Intel/NVIDIA version will do just as well with the same cooling design, which, by the way, proved to be quite bad in numerous other cases – Acer Predator Helios 300, Lenovo Legion Y520, etc.

Overall, if we based the laptop on its specs alone, this laptop can be included in our recommended gaming laptops but of course, there is the issue of how much it costs. The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-79N0 is priced at Php59,999 (see price listing here). At this price range, we do not advise users to make this device as their top pick for a gaming laptop. At this point, users can already find gaming laptops equipped with a GTX 1060 GPU like the Acer Predator Helios 300.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-42, Radeon RX 560X) review – not just a facelift, there is a new engine under the bonnet
Source: Laptop Media English
Comparing the new Acer Nitro 5 to the older model – it’s definitely a more refined product in every direction, and most notably – the CPU. With its 15W TDP, the Ryzen 7 2700U is miles ahead of the FX-9830P used in the last AMD combo. It has a huge performance boost, thanks to the new “Zen” architecture while using three times less energy to do so – quite impressive. The configuration we tested also came with a GPU that makes a debut on the market – AMD Radeon RX 560X, which is nearly as good as the desktop version of the chip.

Ако сте геймър, разлика между конфигурацията с i5-8300H и тази с i7-8750H едва ли ще забележите, а в това число щеше да влиза и Ryzen 7 2700U, ако не се предлагаше единствено с далеч по-слабата RX 560X видеокарта.
Positive: Nice design; excellent display; decent hardware. Negative: Overheats while using; uncomfortable touchpad.

69% Acer Nitro 5 Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Nitro is fine for casual gaming or general-purpose use, but we there are better options out there. That's not to say it's a bad machine (far from it, actually). Not only can it play most triple-A games at 1080p, fan noise is hardly audible. We also really like the sophisticated look and the reasonable starting price. That said, there were a number of trade-offs.

Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN515-51-56UX

The Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN515-51-56UX is a 15.6-inch laptop that was released a little over a year ago, but Acer continues to refresh the range with new Intel and AMD processors. However, with a thickness of 28 mm and 2.7 kg on the scale, the Nitro 5 is not really the ideal travel companion. The Nitro 5 does not have the appearance of a typical gaming notebook - no big logos or multicolored lid. But its stylized vents and keyboard with red backlight still prevent confusing this laptop with a simple desktop machine. The keyboard is rather pleasant to the touch and spacious. The ZQSD keys have an accentuated backlight, and there is even a small numeric keypad. The touchpad is soft, responsive and supports multiple gestures of Windows 10. But it is a clickable touchpad, which means there are no right and left mouse buttons. The laptop is equipped with a Core i5 7300HQ, 8 GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card with 2 GB of dedicated memory. At the graphics cards level, there is no big difference between the GeForce GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050Ti, but it will give a little more room to manage future games. Storage and RAM are both easily accessible from the bottom of the machine. Users can add a 2.5-inch hard disk and/or more memory.

As for the display, the Full-HD screen offers good off-axis visibility, but the colors lack a little sparkle. However, it is a forgivable shortcoming at this price level. As for battery life, do not stay too far away from a power outlet. It has an average battery life of 5 hours 30 minutes on WiFi connectivity. It is rather good for a gaming laptop, but not really for more general everyday use. If a user plays on battery, they should not expect it to last more than two hours. On the other hand, if a user considers this machine as a replacement for a desktop PC, they should be very satisfied with its connections. There are a USB-3.1 Type-C port, two USB-2.0 Type-A ports, a USB-3.0 Type-A port, an SD-card reader, an HDMI output, a headphone/microphone combo jack, and a Gigabit-Ethernet port. No optical disc drive, but the available connections will allow you to use an external drive. Thanks to the device’s rich connectivity, users can easily add a keyboard, a mouse, speakers and even an external monitor to use it as a desktop machine while maintaining good performance to play nomadic if necessary. Its finish is not first class, but it is not inevitably unacceptable, especially if a user plans for a sedentary use.

70% Acer Nitro 5 review
Source: Techradar English
We could forgive the cheap plastic back cover, the basic keyboard, and the heavy weight. But for a gaming laptop, there’s hardly any excuse for the tacky trackpad and the average screen. Budget gamers will rejoice on the price, but hardcore ones will find very little to delight in.

Acer Nitro 5 review: A Coffee Lake-flavored gaming laptop that won't empty your wallet
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Budget gaming laptops don't get as much of a break as their mainstream cousins. They still face intense pressure to deliver. The Acer Nitro 5 is big and heavy, with so-so battery life and a fairly dim screen. But if you're shopping for a gaming laptop that can handle AAA titles without breaking the bank, the Acer Nitro 5 delivers the goods.

Acer Nitro 5 Hands-on, Quick Review: Most Affordable Gaming Notebook?
Source: Unbox English
Obviously trying to get a gaming PC to an affordable price point has its pitfalls, and the Nitro 5 has some obvious ones that need to be addressed. 4GB of RAM in a gaming machine is less than ideal and is one of the biggest bottlenecks in the notebook. Thankfully additional RAM isn’t that expensive (usually around 2.5K per stick). You can also add an SSD drive to the notebook if you need faster performance for selected games.

The Nitro 5 is Acer's budget gaming notebook in the sub $1000 category. It's one of the best value gaming laptops available in stores these days, and a pretty good device overall few flaws. The 2018 update improves on last year's models and gets modern Intel Coffee Lake hardware and a slightly better screen, but still runs noisy under load and packs fairly modest speakers. Carry on with the article below for all the bits and nits.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
