Acer Nitro 5 Spin NP515-51-86CX

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin is an ultra-slim, super-light convertible touchscreen laptop. It provides maximum versatility for the casual gamer. Featuring a sleek body with metal chassis, the Nitro 5 Spin uses powerful components and popular features to give user the tools they need to conquer any battlefield. User can just rotate the revolutionary 360° dual-torque hinge and watch this handy machine convert into a laptop, display, tent or tablet. The Acer Nitro 5 Spin features a vivid, 15.6” Full HD IPS display and enough battery life to keep user powered up all day long. The Nitro, has a dark metal look with red gaming highlights. The display cover features an Acer logo with a brushed hairline finish in the center. It is connected to the base by two stable red hinges which is also in aluminum look. The red highlights of the Nitro continue to run like a thread throughout the entire design concept. The Acer Nitro 5 Spin has a footprint of 38.1 x 25.8 cm (~15 x 10.2 inch) and is 1.79 cm (~0.7 inch) high. The Spin's 1,920 x 1,080 touch screen is not too shabby. The glossy 15.6-inch display produces rich hues and sharp enough details. Display size and resolution result in a pixel density of 141 PPI. The Nitro 5 is bright, averaging 296 nits. The touch panel is both fast and accurate too. The Acer FineTip keyboard and the snugly fitted number block have red lettering that is sufficiently easy to read. The entire keyboard is slightly sunk into the base unit, so that the device can be used easily in tablet mode without the user pressing a key by mistake. What is striking about the Nitro's keyboard is not only the red lettering and the red sides of the keys, but also the red WASD keys for gamers, further highlighted by bold lettering. On the right side of the keyboard, users will find a USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, a headset jack, a secure lock slot and buttons for power and volume. A pair of USB 3.0 ports reside on the left with a USB Type-C port, full-size HDMI and a DC jack. Instead of adding a Gigabit Ethernet port, Acer is using its ExoAmp antenna and 2x2 MU-MIMO wireless tech to ensure that the laptop is able to maintain a stable wireless signal. The hardware configuration of the Nitro 5 Spin with Intel Core i7-8550U gives the Nitro a base clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The Acer Nitro 5 Spin has a main storage device, which is a 256 GB SSD from Micron with an M.2 form factor and a 6-Gbps SATA interface. The Acer Nitro offers very satisfying system performance. It is equipped with a GeForce GTX 1050 from Nvidia. The device can display current games at medium details, and sometimes even at high details thanks to this mid-range GPU.

85.2% Acer Nitro 5 Spin NP515 (i7-8550U, GTX 1050) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Display upgrade vs. SSD downgrade. On the outside, the Acer Nitro 5 Spin is easily recognizable as the gaming version of the Acer Spin 5. However, trying to find other differences between the two convertibles is more difficult - there do not seem to be any at first glance. Is the Nitro hoping to reach gamer status by its red stripes alone, or does it have more to offer? We have put it to the test.

The Acer Nitro 5 Thanos Edition is simply a must-to-be-purchased gaming laptop if we let our hearts decide on it. If the packaging itself made our mouths water, our eyes are teary-eyed when we saw the actual unit itself.

85% Acer Nitro 5 review (2019 AN517-51 model – i7-9750H, GTX 1660Ti)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 17-inch Nitro 5 remains true to its core values: excellent specs and competitive features in an affordable package. This version is more compact and sturdier built than its predecessors, packs updated hardware and a larger battery, as well as an optional 144 Hz screen on the higher-tier variants. The value is especially in the base-level models though, which earned our 4.25 rating, where the Nitro 5 outprices most of the competition, and which the thermal module can actually keep in check both in terms of performance, temperatures, and acoustics. Read on for the complete analysis.

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.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops.

7300HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.5 - 3.5 GHz without Hyper Threading (which is supported by the faster i7 CPUs). The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1000 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).8300H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 4 GHz (3.9 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


81.03%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
