While it’s not the cheapest gaming laptop we’ve seen this year—HP’s entry-level model has been going for $450—the Acer Nitro 7 is a little higher-spec and it only costs a few hundred dollars more. It’s got a GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, an i7-9750H processor, 8GB of RAM, and it comes with a 256GB SSD (which you’ll probably want to supplement with a bigger external drive once you actually start installing games on it).
The screen’s 15.6 inches, which they’re calling a “travel-ready size”, and this is definitely a decent enough gaming rig for when you’re on the go.
The Acer Nitro 7 AN715-51-73BU is $699.99 at the Microsoft Store right now, down from its regular price of 1,099.99 and $100 less than its price at newegg.
