In our Acer Nitro 5 review, we were impressed by the laptop's bright display, high-performance, and powerful graphics. In one test, the Acer Nitro 5 juggled 40 Google Chrome tabs and five YouTube videos without slowing down. Our review unit had an Intel Core i5-12500H CPU with 16GB of RAM. The laptop in this deal should be on par given its 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H/16GB RAM combo.
In terms of design, the Acer Nitro 5's exterior features blue and pink lines scattered across it. Under the lid is a matte black deck and four-zone RGB-lit keyboard — a cutout for the vent is placed just above it. The gap between the hinges gives the laptop's barely-there bezel a floating effect.
At 5.5 pounds and 14.2 x 10.7 x 1.06 inches, the Acer Nitro 5 has a bit more heft than its industry rivals. It's slightly heavier than the MSI Katana GF66 (5.1 pounds, 14.1 x 10.2 x 1.0 inches) and HP Victus 16 (5.4 pounds, 14.6 x 10.2 x 0.9 inches).
At $500 off, the Acer Nitro 5 is a tremendously great value for the price. If you're looking for a stylish, powerful laptop for gaming or creating, you can't go wrong with the Acer Nitro 5.
