Acer Nitro – Acer’s latest stab at the budget PC gaming scene, the Acer Nitro 5 ticks off the right boxes for your portable gaming needs. Ideal for budget-minded gamers, this gaming laptop certainly expands your options for a cheap laptop that can handle the more demanding PC games.

hat’s because Acer Nitro 5 delivers more for less, with a price tag as low as $749 (£899, about AU$1009). It rocks an Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics card and a mid-tier 8th-generation Intel Core processor then rounds it all out with a user-controllable dual-fan cooling system, a decent 1080p screen and a keyboard comfortable enough to play on for hours on end.

With its combination of low price, decently powerful specs and a nice feature set, there’s no denying that the Acer Nitro 5 is one of the best value laptops out there. Of course, some sacrifices do have to be made, but none affect this laptop’s overall performance enough to matter, especially for the savings it offers.

The Acer Nitro 5 is one of the most affordable gaming laptops in the market today. With its $749 starting price, the same model that we tested, you get its most basic configuration.

Generally speaking, the Nitro 5 lines up against similarly priced and configured gaming laptops, like the Dell G3 15 and Lenovo Legion Y530, though user-controlled cooling is a first in this niche with this laptop.
