Acer launched the 2021 model of its popular Nitro 5 gaming laptop a while back. Much like the previous iterations, it’s a go-to laptop for gamers looking for a competent machine on a budget. So, let’s walk through the specs, features, availability, and official price of Acer Nitro 5 2021 in Nepal.

Display and Design of Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop
The laptop is not going to win any awards for its screen-to-body ratio. Especially, the bottom bezel is so large it can accommodate a wide-body aircraft. On the bright side, the laptop’s screen is very good. For an LCD, this 15.6-inch IPS panel delivers rich colors. Packing in 1920 x 1080 pixels, the display is quite sharp. Moreover, it has an anti-glare coating, which helps in off-angle viewing.
Like most gaming laptops, the Nitro 5 is a bulky beast that weighs around 2.4 kg. The notebook has distinct edges and red accents in a couple of places. The lid sports an angular pattern that seems inspired by stealth aircraft designs. However, all these elements are quite subtle compared to the bold aesthetics of Alienware or ROG (Republic of Gamers) line-up. If you are a fan of RGB lights, prepare yourself for a disappointment as it is only limited to the keyboard.
Keyboard and Trackpad
The keyboard is where the Nitro 5 showcases its gaming aesthetics with an RGB backlight. These keys are further divided into four zones that can be individually controlled to display different hues. The backlight can be static or you can choose from a bunch of presets such as Wave, Neon, Breathing, etc.
Acer Nitro 5 Performance
Thanks to the 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and GeForce RTX 1650 GPU, the Nitro 5 has enough grunt to handle most tasks without breaking a sweat. Having used it as my daily driver for the last couple of weeks, I can vouch that this machine does not show any sign of a slowdown even with over 20 tabs open in Chrome, a couple of documents in Microsoft Word, and Adobe Photoshop running in the background.
