Acer’s budget-friendly gaming laptop Nitro 5 has finally made its way to Nepal with Ryzen 7 5800H processor and FHD display. The 2021 model gets slightly toned down compared to that its previous version. While the red accents on the laptop have been somewhat reduced, it shares similarities in terms of weight, thickness, design, and feel to its predecessor. Let’s get to the in-depth details of the 2021 Acer Nitro 5 in Nepal.
Acer Nitro 5 overview
The exterior of the Nitro 5 has subtle changes for 2021: the grills on the sides of the lid are gone, and it is rather clean with just two lines running through the top; the red hinge is replaced by a black one with just the ‘Nitro’ lettering on red; and the red border on the trackpad is gone. The left side of the laptop gets an ethernet port, two USB 3.2 Type-A, audio jack, Kensington Lock, and air exhaust. Similarly, the right side has HDMI, USB Type-A, USB Type-C, and air exhaust. Unlike the previous version with side-mounted power input, the new Nitro 5 gets its power connector on the rear between the grills. The keyboard is the same as before with a dedicated number pad on the right side, and so are the speakers on the bottom. The keyboard can be configured to four-zone RGB lighting.
The 2021 Nitro 5 comes with a 15.6-inch full-HD IPS display (1920 x 1080 pixels) in Nepal that has a refresh rate of 144 Hz, but it is also available in a pristine QHD display panel with a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The QHD panel is an important upgrade from its predecessor that features more accurate colours and a vibrant display with just the brightness being the downfall of it. The bezels on the sides are slim, but the top and button bezels are rather thick. The bezel also houses the 720p webcam, the same webcam featured in previous-generation models.
