Acer Nitro 5 (2018) Review – Best Affordable Gaming Laptop?

Lisa Gade reviews the Acer Nitro 5 with a 15.6” full HD IPS display, Intel 8th generation CPUs and NVDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics. Our base model with an Intel Core i5-8300H 45 watt CPU, 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 256 GB NVMe SSD lists for $799, though you’ll find it for less for back to school season. It’s also available with the Intel Core i7-8750H 6 core CPU and an HDD in addition to the SSD. The Nitro 5 is relatively slim and light for a gaming laptop with an understated design (other than the red accents). It has a backlit keyboard, USB-C and better than average stereo speakers.


Rothaar Music says:

Great review!! Is there any way to get the response time that the monitor has?

yuvaraj putin says:

Look at those shitty Bessel Eww!

centerNegative says:

Please don’t go down that clickbait video title road. Also, apply Betteridge’s law of headlines.

kevin says:

Thank you

Στέλιος Κόκορης says:

Great cheap gaming laptop!!!!!!

christiana link TVJM says:

love it this acer

Matthew says:

Can we expect a Note 9 or Tab S4 review anytime soon?

The Man says:

The bezel looks terrible on this laptop.

The Man says:

Guess that means we don’t have to worry about designs anymore.

alkalinetrio759 says:

I got this on sale for 650 at Microcenter. Was on sale for a month than discontinued

bogart hunter says:

T H I C C bezel boiz.

Miss Jazzeh says:

I’m tryna find a good laptop that will run minecraft with no lag.. I have a laptop now and its a toshiba laptop but it has 3-5 FPS when I play Minecraft… Does anyone know any good laptops??

Steve Mcc says:

This is a great laptop, awesome review. Your shirts are the best.

S Patel says:

Hey, where do you buy your tshirts from ? Also could you review Dell Lattitude 7490. No one has done it before

DaHomelessBillionare says:

I love your channel and your enthusiasm for it.

Joejoejoe says:

Great reviews! I like how you consider a lot of aspects of a computer.

Sam Fisher says:

It’s a cheese ball that won’t sell itself.

Raj Derasari says:

Have you heard of the new ASUS TUF series? It’d be awesome if you could check that one out!

TheB29Bomber says:

Personally if you’re looking for an 8750H laptop for under a thousand bucks I’d look at the G7 before the Nitro due to the Thunderbolt 3 port and this is coming from someone who prefers Acer over Dell.

jiv32 says:

Reviewers need to stop bitching about plastic and praising metal as a perception of high quality. I don’t mind laptops with plastic exteriors. I’d love a return to plastic phones. A oneplus 1 feels soooo much better in hand than a oneplus 3.

Sabir Kothiya says:

Can you review the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?

Closingracer says:

Best Buy has it for $699

avinash ramasamy says:

What is better the dell g7 or the new hp omen both have a gtx 1060 and similar prices

rage says:

is the 2 in 1 version good?

TheMadProphet says:

Is it really worth getting the core i7?

elektron2kim says:

I need to see some more laptop reviews before I start building a desktop. It’s about the money, the parts and waiting.

Evie Scott says:

cultural attend reception general era cool three anyway train breathe.

mark angelo Garcia says:

the specs of this laptop brings so much shame to that asus gl703 she review several months before its so expensive just for that ROG branding

Jess Philps says:

Hope you do a review on the – ( HP Chromebook x2 )

manu sharma says:

You can start a seperate channel for your t-shirts only.

simonp lm says:

i should have waited a little before buying my current setup…

Kwok Chong Chen says:

1. Dell G7
2. Dell G3
3. Dell G5
4. Acer nitro 5
5. Acer Helios 300
6. HP Omen 15
7. MSI something…

Thanks Lisa.

Brandasorus says:

I don’t know anything about laptops, so it sounds like Lisa is speaking another language, but nevertheless, I love listening to her ramble about all this tech stuff

OfficialHankIII says:

Are you gonna be reviewing the Helios Predator 500 soon?

Evan Rogers says:

I actually wish the Acer Helios 300 would’ve looked more like this if it had to absolutely go with the red and black.

Bugs says:

Do MSI Prestige PS42 pls

Sanjay Rishi says:

I think the HP omen 15 2018 edition is the best bang for the buck at just a 1000 bucks.

Laugher Nagal says:

Can you do a gaming headset review on the Runmus K8. I have not seen any videos about it at all.

highestspirit says:

Don’t understand why in the world did they discontinue the vx 15 series. Its design and build quality is so good at this price point.

John Morgan says:

Your invisibility cloak isn’t working :-) Love your T-shirts as usual.

sdushdiu says:

Acer continues to offer the best value proposition in computers. Thanks Lisa.

723lion says:

oh this one is BEST!

T M says:

Can you review Think Tiny computers series & ThinkVision monitors ?

Andru Bernardo says:
