Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen is one of the few gaming laptops available in the market that has received an excellent response from most people. Suitable for gaming and the use of other heavy applications, this laptop offers a lot more. Here, we take a look at the pros and cons of Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 and help you decide if you should buy this laptop. 

Built and Design

Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 comes in black color and offers a very unique but impressive design. The lid is made of plastic and does not flex easily. The lid has brush finishing on the left and right corners and normal finishing in the middle with the Acer logo in the center. The look of this laptop is like one a typical gamer laptop. The hinges of this Gaming Laptop under 70000 in India are nice and large, which provide good support to the lid. 

The base side of the laptop has several open vents for easy airflow and a rubber grip at 4 corners to avoid the slipping away of the laptop. The speaker grills are downfacing at the base and in extreme corners. At the backside, near the lid’s hinges, you will find the air exhausts and a port for the power supply. There are two air vents on the sides as well to let cooling air enter. Two fans help to cool down the laptop to avoid heating issues. There is ample arrangement for cooling, so heating issues are not expected from this laptop. 

Usually, you see laptops having charging ports on the sides, but with this laptop, you will have to plug the power adaptor from behind. Personally, it causes slight discomfort, but if this doesn’t concern you, then it is not of much importance, of course. There is a red color patch that gives a gaming look to the laptop from behind too. 

The combination of red and black makes the laptop look slightly aggressive. If you don’t like aggressive-looking laptops, you might have to look extra hard because most gaming laptops come with an aggressive design that screams the word ‘Gaming.’ Gaming laptops are usually heavy, and this is no exception. It weighs almost 2.3Kgs which is moderately heavy for a gaming laptop.

The Power button is merged with the number pad and is on the top right corner of the keyboard. One of the major drawbacks is that there are no media keys or function keys. They are integrated with the other keys. This might particularly be difficult for people who love to use shortcuts because the keyboard will have too many shortcuts that you are not aware of. The arrow buttons also have a red bar, which shows that this Gaming Laptop under 75000 is dedicated to being a gamer’s laptop. It gives an aggressive look that seems to stand off a lot. 

As you come to the keyboard and trackpad, the first thing you notice is the red backlight of the keyboard. The key travel for the keyboard is pretty good, and if you code or do some kind of typing work, then this laptop’s keyboard will give you a very smooth typing experience. There is sufficient palm rest for your hands and enough space to travel through all keys effortlessly. 

Coming to the trackpad, it is slightly bigger than what you see. Another thing you would notice about the trackpad is that it is made of flexible plastic that is not of very great quality. However, it does make sense because since this is a gaming laptop, the use of a trackpad is minimal. Most gamers use a mouse or other gaming accessories to play and don’t make much use of the trackpad. Therefore this drawback is excusable, however not acceptable. We can expect to get better quality at this price. 


With an AMD Ryzen 7 processor, this laptop delivers excellent performance and speed. With your daily activities like web browsing, editing documents, or any other basic computing tasks and the use of heaving applications PremiumPro, your multitasking will not go for a toss. In fact, multitasking will seem easy and effortless. You could have multiple web browsers and tabs open and simultaneously edit videos and still not face any problem with the performance of this laptop. 

The ryzen 7 processor, along with the 16GB  RAM, enhances the performance of this laptop even more. The only disadvantage that you face in terms of performance is when playing very heavy video games because the laptop does not have a good V Ram.  The graphics card used in this laptop is of the older generations and does not support good VRam.  

Other than that you will have a pleasurable gaming experience with our laptop and can hit 60fps  with high and Ultra-high settings.  Most of the time, gaming laptops falter at high and Ultra-high settings,  but this laptop provides you with more.

You can expect the laptop to have battery hours off anywhere between 2-8 hours.  In light use, it was observed that the battery lasted from anywhere between 6 to 8 hours.  When the laptop is doing heavy work like high graphic-intensive games and 4K video editing,  the battery drains as quickly as 1.25 hours.

Overall this laptop is a choice that must be considered while looking for gaming laptops.  Considering the choices, features, and variants it offers, it comes on the upper end of a budget-friendly laptop.  one major disadvantage is the 1680 ti that can cause throttling in the system but only in cases where you are playing high-end graphics-intensive games and using extremely heavy applications.
