In this article, I give you my quick review of the Acer Nitro 5 laptop. This 15.6-inch chassis, all plastic, features the Intel i5 8300H CPU and Nvidia GTX 1050ti GPU.
An NVME drive from Intel is the 600P 1500 to 500 read/write speed respectively. It also has a 48-watthour battery. Good luck getting 3 hours of battery life on it.
Intel’s newest 9560 Wi-Fi which is fantastic. And all of this can be had for a medium price point for laptops.
This is a great laptop and it’s a good contender against Lenovo’s y5 30 as well as the Dell g3. And I do find bang for the buck. Generally speaking, this comes out ahead just by a smidge.
So, let’s go ahead and take a look at this. We’ve got an aluminum-look lid, which is not too bad. It has a little bit of a shine to it and it is quite the fingerprint magnet so beware.
Over on the left hand side of course you’ve got your LAN, USB-C, HDMI out, USB, and a card reader of course your lock as well.
Beware the card reader, when a card is inserted into it it sticks out a mile so you’re gonna want to pull that out before sticking it into a tight bag.
Over on the right hand side, you’ve got your multi-purpose headphone microphone jack, two more USBs, and the barrel-style power plug which features a ninety-degree bend and a 135-watt brick. It does the job just fine and there’s no discharging at all under hours of gaming whatsoever.
Now the bottom. The accessibility of this is very, very nice. We do not need to remove the panel to have access to the RAM. We’ve got a single DIMM in here occupied and that is 8 gigabytes at 2666 which is excellent. There as well is an empty slot should you feel the need to fill it.
