• CPU: Intel Core i7-8750H
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5)
  • Display: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), 144 Hz, IPS
  • Storage: 500GB SSD + 1000GB HDD
  • RAM: 16GB DDR4, 2666 MHz
  • Weight: 2.48 kg (5.5 lbs)

Pros

  • Decent build
  • A slightly more simplistic design approach with less flashy appearance
  • Fairly comfortable input devices
  • Full HD IPS display
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating screen brightness

Cons

  • The display becomes really dim (just 104 cd/m2) when the notebook isn't plugged in

Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-52) in-depth review

Acer's Nitro 5 lineup seems like a strange addition to the gaming family since there are already low-end gaming configurations under the Aspire VX 15 brand. In any case, the Nitro 5 has more in common with the mid-range Acer Predator Helios 300 notebooks rather than the VX 15 due to its cooling design, chassis and overall construction.
