Finally, the laptop’s sound is fairly hyped on the high-end and quite echoey, but you can personalize it with the equalizer in the Dolby Audio software. Simply put, it’s another máy tính xách tay with subpar audio – par for casual gaming, unless you’re Origin.

Keyboard & Trackpad

More reason most of us buy Acer’s Nitro 5s is the keyboard. There’s nothing overly special about it; the symbols are in red, the backlight is also in red, and the WASD keys are emboldened in red paint. Overall, it’s just your typical, middle-0f-the-road keyboard. Having said that, we find it very comfortable as well as quite reliable.

You’ll find the keyboard fast and responsive, & you won’t experience any lags, missed presses, or accidental presses – during work or play. As for the trackpad, it gives a lot of travel and is quite stiff. While gaming máy tính trackpads are frowned upon in PC gaming, especially for FPS, RPG, and action games, we expected something better here.

Knowing that the Nitro 5 is a budget gaming machine, it’s safe lớn say that you don’t expect blazing gaming on modern titles. Having said that, its 10th-generation Intel vi xử lý core i5-10300H Processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD storage, và Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics card are limited to 1080p gaming, where it puts a strong showing when compared lớn other 1080p gaming laptops.

At the same settings, Grand Theft tự động hóa V plays at 42 fps, while Metro Exodus averages 51 fps. That’s slightly better for an entry-level gaming máy tính as it goes above the 37-fps average.

Battery Life

Surprisingly, the Acer Nitro 5’s battery lasts longer than you’d expect of any budget gaming laptop. Overall, gaming laptops are notorious for their bad battery life, và we’re surprised that this guy could crank 4 hours 13 minutes at 1/2 brightness.

This is partly lớn the newer energy-efficient 10th-generation processor, and the not-so-bright display that doesn’t consume much battery.

Bottom Line

The Acer Nitro 5 is almost your dream budget gaming laptop, with competition-beating hardware, 144Hz display, good frame rates, & a nice VR score. However, there’s one máy tính that keeps outperforming the Nitro 5 on 1080p gaming: the new Acer Predator Helios 300.

The Intel vi xử lý core i7-powered Helios 300 is a super gaming rig, sporting a punchier display, more storage, a better GPU, và better overall performance. On the plus side, the Nitro 5 triumphs over most of its competitors with a luxurious keyboard and is offered at a very reasonable price.
