Playing on a home console is great, but sometimes you need more power and accuracy than the PS4, Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One can offer. To the rescue: the Acer Nitro 5 laptop. Whether you’re a gamer or a gamer you love and who can only use one late holiday gift, you need to know about this special offer.

The Acer Nitro 5 laptop is on sale for $ 670 or $ 150 off Amazon, just today – this is the lowest price we’ve seen on this model. It’s worth grabbing in advance for an upcoming birthday – because this prize may not come again. In any case, do not procrastinate: this next level sells at midnight PST.

Raw power

The Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop, with an Intel Core i5-10300H processor coupled to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, was originally $ 820. It has 16 GB of memory and 256 GB of memory on board.

The Windows 10 laptop can play even the most intense and graphically demanding games, such as Final Fantasy XV, Metro exit, Deus Ex: Mankind Divides and Far Cry 5. In addition, its memory and storage are easily upgradeable. If you want more, just open the laptop and insert new cards and chips.

Everything on it looks sharp and detailed, and its 15.6-inch Full HD screen has an insanely high refresh rate (144Hz) for lifelike motion and brightness.

“I did not expect Nitro 5 to surprise me,” wrote a five-star reviewer, “but I must still be impressed with the great quality of the screen, and the refreshing pace feels incredible. It perfectly did everything I threw at it. Also for anyone wondering: if you are looking for a budget computer to show the full features of VR on the GO, I could run Half Life Alyx and show it to other people on my Oculus, no problems. ”

Slim and clean design

There is no way around it. This laptop is big and dense, but it has to be – it’s a gaming power station. Not only is it designed to get you through a day of work (though it will), it is made to shred through great games with detailed graphics, without any delay, delay or false frames.

The Acer Nitro 5 is super-smooth for a laptop with its black design and bright red accents. Its bright red keyboard with backlight illuminates ensures that play in the dark is bright and precise. And at just under eight pounds, it’s surprisingly portable – compared to others weighing more than 10 pounds.

As a researcher and a gamer, I need a computer that can both use high-level computer software (for example, GIS) and play games in my spare time. This computer can do both easily, ”shared a satisfied Amazon buyer. “In general, this is exactly what I needed.”

A great laptop, great price, cool colors and does everything my teenage son needs (and wants). Especially with COVID and virtual learning – we needed a device to meet the school needs (sorry chromebooks, but …) and we wanted a device for his love of games and (for now virtual) friend gatherings. Would recommend it, ”added another five-star Amazon reviewer.

At this selling price of less than $ 1,000, it is a winner for beginners and predecessors.
