Acer Nitro 5 (17-inch, AN517-51-56YW) review: Here's your cheap Fortnite laptop

Smoothly handles competitive shooters on maximum graphics settings ; Not much bigger or heavier than some 15-inch gaming laptops ; Supports RAM and storage upgrades

Not great for CPU-intensive tasks ; Keyboard has some minor annoyances ; HDMI-only for display output

Let’s start with the anecdotal evidence: Acer claims the Nitro 5 can clear 60 frames per second in “the most popular competitive games.” That held true in rounds of and , with both running smoothly at 1080p under maximum graphics settings. maintained...

Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-51) review – we prefer the 15-inch version

 

It took us a while, but we were finally able to get our hands on the 17-inch version of the Acer Nitro 5 2019. Otherwise, it is called the Nitro 5 (AN517-51) and it is more or less an enlarged vers…

Decently priced;Has two M.2 PCIe slots, as well as a 2.5″ SATA drive slot;Covers 92% of sRGB and our Gaming and Web design profile makes it appropriate for color-sensitive work (BOE NV173FHM-N46 (BOE0839));Doesn’t use PWM to adjust its brightness...

When gaming battery life if poor, but that seems standard.

It’s a beautiful laptop for everyone from gamers to web searches I think the price is a little high because the battery is poor 3 to 4 hours life depending which game you are playing

Battery life is very poor for a gaming laptop

The light up keyboard which is good when you work in a room with others who don’t want bright light on.

Doesn’t fit the bag the sales assistant sold us. It won’t close and worse when you try and put the cable in at the same time.
