Best Gaming Laptop Under $700? Acer Nitro 5 Review!

The Acer Nitro 5 is a ultra low budget gaming laptop, but it still packs a lot of power for under $700. It’s got a i5-8300H, GTX 1050 or 1050 TI, 8 GB of ram, 1 TB HDD or 256 SSD, decent display, solid keyboard, mediocre trackpad, and great port selection. Overall great buy for the $$$!

GizmoSlipTech says:

The Acer Nitro 5 seems lik a solid all arounder for the $$$. I forgot to put in that it scored 820 in Cinebench, which is quite good for a quad core CPU. So it’s a solid machine for editing videos as well! Thanks for watching! You guys mean a lot to me!

Rukahs says:

bro from where i am this laptop has two varieties:
one with amd cpu / amd gpu and the other with intel cpu / nvidia gpu
so here’s the specs of each
AMD ryzen 5 2500U 2.0 Ghz
4Gb Ddr4 Ram
Radeon Rx 560 4gb
Price: $800

Intel i5 8300H
4Fb Ddr4 Ram
Nvidia GTX 1050 4gb ( Non-TI)
Price: $1000

Here’s my main question: Is it worth it to just get the $800 one rather than the $1000?just for a bit of edge on the performance? or is the intel way better compared to the AMD? my basis is – Multi-Tasking, How hot the laptop get’s when playing 5++ hours, video editing/rendering and Gaming.

Hot Shot says:

Can we use this for business purpose also? Like using Microsoft office word etc in the nitro 5 ryzin


someone recommend a laptop with backlight keyboard under 1000?

Sebastian Burek says:

Terry McDonald says:

I’ve been reading the display and color for the Nitro 5 licks balls. Would the Aspire 5 be any better on the display front if I wasn’t that focused on playing games?

Ferdi says:

Wait, was all this testing done with single channel RAM? From personal experience I can tell you that it is a very bad experience with a single channel configuration.

Nick Oclassen says:

Can you do a VR test on this laptop?

The Neves says:

Denzyy Trevyy says:

“$649” what do u mean by that? Is that brand new or what? Cause I literally have $650. Thank you for answering!

NIKK3Z says:

Dylan Smith says:

Please help I’m getting the nitro i5 8300H GeForce GTX1050. Please tell me if this is good for gaming i really need to know

Samurai Gaming says:

I bought it a month ago and my trackpad did not work since I turned it on, and a few weeks later the windows key stopped working. I then had to give it to geek squad to fix it but they said they couldn’t and I am left with this old crappy computer that I am typing on.
