Gaming on a home console is great, but sometimes you need more power and accuracy that the PS4, Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One just can’t provide. To the rescue: The Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop.
It’s on sale for $900, or $150 off at Amazon, today only—that’s the all-time lowest price we’ve ever seen on this model. But don’t delay: This next-level sale expires at midnight PST.
Originally priced at $1,050, the Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop, with an Intel Core i7-9750H processor paired with a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, is a beast. It also comes with 16GB of memory and 256GB of on-board storage.
The Windows 10 gaming laptop can stand up to even the most intense and graphically demanding games, such as Final Fantasy XV, Metro Exodus, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Far Cry 5. Plus, its memory and storage is easily upgradeable. If you want more, just open up the laptop and slide in new cards and drives.
Everything on it looks sharp and detailed, and its 15.6-inch Full HD display has an insanely high refresh rate (144Hz) for life-like motion and clarity.
“Never had such an amazing gaming machine,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The Acer Nitro 5 is truly powerful and portable. It easily handled every game that I tried with the highest video settings. The IPS display is great, the keyboard and the touchpad feel really good and the overall design of the laptop is slick! This is the best product you can find for the price. In addition, the laptop offers a lot of upgradability which is also a huge plus.”
Sleek and clean design
There’s no way around it. This laptop is big and bulky, but it has to be—it’s a gaming powerhouse. It’s not just designed to get you through a day of work, it’s made to shred through big games with detailed graphics without any lag, latency or dropped frames.
For a gaming laptop, the Acer Nitro 5 is super sleek, with its all-black design and bright red accents. Its bright red backlit keyboard ensures gaming in the dark is clear and precise. And at just under eight pounds, it’s surprisingly portable—compared to others that weigh upwards of 10 pounds.
“Great laptop. Very smooth and easy to use. I bought this laptop with the intent to use it for school and moderate gaming, and it does quite the job,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “Graphics are so clean! The build feels really great and the quality is amazing. The sleek look and design, along with the light-up keyboard, makes it look so aggressive and gives you a ‘gamer’ feel when using.”
“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,” added another five-star Amazon reviewer.
At this sub-$1,000 sale price, it’s a winner for noobs and pros alike.
