  • What buyers say about Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42-R5ED Gaming Laptop

    The fan on the Nitro 5 laptop works well to cool the insides of the laptop while you play a game and then charge it while you are playing the game.

    I ordered 32GB of ram, and I believe that this little powerhouse will handle practically anything I throw at it, Highly recommended, and just great for non gaming uses, " these days, AMDs Ryzen is the way to go, and this laptop is a perfect example."

    I was skeptical when I first purchased this laptop, but after playing for many hours, I am very impressed with the price and performance of the computer.

    I use it for everyday things and it works well, as well as online gaming on steam. Sound is awesome, battery life is great, graphics and speed are great and hold up really well during gaming.

    It's only 8 gigabytes of ram and only 32 gigabytes of memory, but I believe that the little powerhouse will handle anything I throw at it, and I ordered 32 gigabytes of ram.
