Acer nitro 5 gaming laptop review
- Solid specs for a budget laptop.
- Stays cool under pressure with customizable fan controls.
- Plenty of ports for peripherals.
- Bulky size.
- Finicky trackpad.
- Weak audio.
Ok so I’m going to give my completely honest review. So far I’m extremely happy with this laptop. It’s a great laptop for gamers who are just starting and it definitely will do the job. Has quite a nice bright screen.
It is bulky overall but not as much as you’d think. I could probably still easily put it in my backpack to take to class. The keyboard is naturally red which could be a negative for some people but you can change the brightness of the backlit keyboard which I did love.
One of the coolest things is that for a laptop the ram and SSD are pretty easily upgradable so with another stick of RAM and more storage you’re looking at a pretty good quality laptop here that can play you most games you probably need and good for office work at the same time.
My only personal con for this laptop is that as a right-handed player they put all the important things for gaming on the right side (charging port, headphone jack, and USB for the mouse), so if you need to have them in all at the same time can be quite annoying to deal with in terms of cable management.
It doesn’t really have any features that are too cool or special but it has an application called NitroSense used to check the speeds that your fans are going. On that application you can change it to high performance or max fan power if the game you are playing requires it.
Personally I thought it was worth every dollar especially as a place to start if you’re kinda of behind and are on a budget like me.
