    De verdad que esta computadora me ha soprendido, anteriormente tenia una laptop Thunderobot con una RTX 3060 comprada en Ali la cual la vendi por que alguien me la quiso comprar y entonces al andar buscando otra laptop me tope con esta la cual la recomendaban en una pagina de expertos en gaming, el dia que la compra estaba en 19,999 , dije bueno ok , 12 mil menos que la computadora anterior , voy a darme la oportunidad de comprarla al cabo que Amazon acepta devoluciones, total que me llego en 9 dias, inmediatamente la destape ya que averigue que no pierdes la garantia al hacer lo, le aumente la memoria RAM para que dar en 16GB, le coloque un NVMe Samsung 970 evo plus de 1TB, y un disco mecanico 2.5 Sata de 1 Tb, ya con todo listo y funcionando , instale sniper elite 4, dead stranding, control, wolfenstein young blood, microsofot flight simulator 2021,Forza Horizon 4, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts, Halo Master Chief, A Plague Tale Innocence, Ori and the Will of the Wisps,Doom Eternal,NBA 2K Play Grounds entre otros , de todos estos juegos el unico que me dio Lag fue el forza Horizon 4, pero todos los demas los he jugado sin problema alguno, sinceramente recomiendo esta computadora, si quieres mayor potencia, te aconsejo que te armes una de escritorio con una rtx 3070 como minimo, porque entre esta laptop y una rtx 3060 no vi mucha diferencia en los juegos. lo unico malo que el precio se ha elevado bastante, al momento que estoy escribiendo esta reseña ya va en 27 y fraccion, ojala la vuelvan a bajar o la puedan encontrar en otra en mejor precio.

    So I’ve had my Acer for almost a year now and here are my thoughts, struggles, FYIs for those thinking on getting one.

    First big thing is RAM 8gb is a very small amount and if you’re planning on any sort of heavy gaming beyond some old titles or mmo you’ll want to upgrade it (great thing is though that it’s easy enough to swap out).

    Second is battery when I was still deciding on buying or not there was a few reviews mentioning a possible battery issue where it it will start losing its charge and having to swap it and sure enough after a few months I saw my battery slowly but surely losing its charge and decided to order a replacement. Now as I was waiting for it I lost power for some hours mid gaming and chose to just run the battery out until it came back after draining it and the power got back on for charging the battery issue was gone which while great was a bit frustrating having to go through a return for the replacement battery.

    Lastly temperature it can get fairly warm so I’d recommend getting a cooling pad if anything for longevity especially if you’re like me and plan on using it for years to come.

    Outside of those couple things it’s been perfect for me especially for an under 1k laptop.

    I loved this Laptop before replacing it with my newest one I bought at a Black Friday discount of only $1000, the Asus A15, RTX 3050Ti, Ryzen 7, upgraded 6800H/ 32GB RAM 1TB SSD). If your not wanting Ryzen but Intel 7 instead, than I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop. I attached a picture of the red keyboard as this was one of the many features I loved most about the Acer 17.6″ Laptop. I would give it an overall rating of about 4.8 Stars since the one I have now cost around the same price but comes with FULL RBG functionality, and 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and both are expandable.(See my review on the Asus A15, April 2022 Model here on Amazon, or YouTube. I do alot of reviews by choice, and in order to help others know what it is they might be investing their hard earn dollars into. I think all reviews should be 100% honest and straight forward, but unfortunately there are some who might bock at this; I don’t let that stop my being open and honest though. So yeah, I would recommend this Acer model if your not into Asus or are on a tighter budget as I myself am on.

    I spent a while deciding on a lower end gaming machine to get after growing weary of PSN offerings over the last few years. Have been a console player on PSN for 27 years and wanted a good machine to start my PC adventures again. For PC Gaming you have to have good gear. And man can this machine deliver! It boots up and shuts down in about 5-7 seconds and flys through games and apps. I’m running Xbox live, Steam, Epic games with no issues.

    The keyboard is nice, one of the reasons I picked this machine, very comfortable to use hours on end. Fans are loud, as most of these gaming machines are, but really not too bad…I don’t ever really notice them while I’m playing. I run my HDMI out to a 4K gaming monitor and it runs great. Some people complain about the touch pad, but I never use it….using the Nitro gaming mouse and love it. I like the thin bezel screen design, keeping those red LED’s on my keyboard. Some gaming laptops do not have a good keyboard layout…this one is nice.

    I also can confirm this works with Meta Quest 2 with a link cable (to a decent degree). Some low end gaming laptops do not even have a USB 3.0 port, this one does. Don’t expect this machine to work great on all VR games and it takes a bit of tweaking to get your system running smooth, I did have some issues with a couple Steam VR games. But I can confirm it works reasonably well with VR Pokerstars and PopOne is playable (I still prefer wireless for that as there is not a real advantage in using link cable, but it was a great test on framerate and playability). I will be trying more VR games eventually. You do have to optimize this laptop a bit but not too much to do , trim down the fat. But it is fun exploring what this machine can do with VR games.

    Some tips:
    I HIGHLY recommend getting another Ram stick, 16Gig min. (I’m running 16 Gig and always have 4-8 Gigs free) . At 8 Gigs it’s just not enough. I also highly recommend getting a larger SSD card (just add on) as these games do take up space quickly. I dropped in a 1 TB card so I am at 1.2 TB now. Taking the back cover off was not really too hard, once you take the screws off and pop off the first latch, just be careful as this case is plastic.

    I use an adjustable metal laptop stand and have the back raised 3 or 4 inches to keep the air flow underneath good (lowered down a bit) , after a couple months of use it seems to work well and gives me a comfortable angle to use the keyboard.

    I was casually browsing around for a laptop, and this one came out at the right time. I bought this on sale for $679.99, and with a i7-11800H with a RTX 3050 Ti, it’s a fantastic price. Usually laptops that have a dedicated 3050 Ti hover around the $800 mark with a lesser performing CPU.

    Keep in mind the Intel i7-11800H outperforms AMD Ryzen 5-5600H by about 20%. A 1660 Ti in a laptop isn’t a huge performance boost, but costs about $400 more on average.

    Note: It also comes with Windows 11, but you can always downgrade.

    – Price to performance
    – Haven’t had any issues with gaming and cooling, but fan does get a bit loud for more stressful games
    – 144hz screen is great
    – Upgradability (I added another SSD and more 8GB RAM)

    – The power outlet is a bit difficult to put in. I’ve seen some of the DOA reviews and I’m almost sure it’s because they didn’t shove the outlet in hard enough.
    – On the heavier side of a laptop
    – USB-C output is only based on the Intel Graphics driver, can’t use the GPU with the USB-C
    – So much Acer Bloatware. I spent the first few minutes with the laptop just uninstalling Acer programs

    Overall, it’s definitely a great laptop and I have yet to have any issues using it.

    Muy buena laptop, para jugar está increíble, quizá no tiene tanta memoria pero se puede expandir. Lo único “malo” fue que me tardo 1mes en llegar, parecía de Ali expréss Haha, 15 días en confirmar y 15 en llegar aún habiendo pagado priority.

    La seguiré usando y más adelante veré si actualizo mi comentario.
