Design and Usage
Elegance and classy is the first thought that comes to mind as you lay eyes on the Acer Nitro 5. Acer has chosen a black case for the Nitro 5, which is highlighted by red hinges and a red border around the touchpad. The display cover has a brushed-metal effect.
The Nitro 5 has an excellent keyboard for a laptop as the scrabble-tile buttons are quiet and have a decent amount of travel from one keypad to another. It is soft and comfortable which is great for typing gamers. The ClickPad supports multi-touch gestures and is about 10.6 x 7.7 cm large. This means there is plenty of space for the gesture control feature.
The Nitro 5 is a wee bit heavier from its cousins, weighing in at 2.7kg, measuring 27mm thick from top to bottom with the hinges at the bottom, the battery is non-removable. Nevertheless, the Nitro 5 does not create too much of a bulky traveller.

With the Acer CoolBoost, you can now game reliably for long periods with little to worry about during long gaming sessions.
Keeping up with its title as a gaming laptop, the Acer Nitro 5 does not lack in the gaming department. We were able to play the latest games on medium to high settings with games such as Dota 2, Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls Online being used to test the system to the max. Although the Ultra High setting may be beyond reach, for those who just want to play the game on medium to high, this device is more than capable.
The sound of the laptop coming through achieves high solid vocals and just the right amount of bass for gamers. The Acer Nitro 5’s 4-cell Li-Polymer battery is a 3220 mAh number. The specification sheet says that this has legs for a maximum of 8.5 hours. During our tests, after 4 hours of usage, the battery level was only slightly above the 50 percent mark The display boasts a 1080p 15.6-inch IPS panel which gives you a vivid visual experience that is beyond your imagination.
