When it comes to gaming laptops, there's no lack of option these days even if you have a tight budget. But this time around we've found an option that you might be interested in. Acer's latest variant of the Nitro 5 gaming laptop comes with pretty good specs and has a price tag that won't make your finance manager (read: wallet) cry.

Earlier today, Acer Malaysia announced the new Nitro 5 for Malaysia with a price of RM2999. It has an AMD Ryzen 3750H CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, and a sizable 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD. If that's not enough, you can upgrade the RAM all the way to 32GB, add another SSD via the M.2 slot, or slot in a 2.5-inch HDD using the upgrade kit for even more storage.


Appreciate good graphics and audio quality? Acer has you covered too. The Nitro 5's 15.6-inch IPS display (1080p) comes with a refresh rate of 120Hz and its speakers optimised by Acer's TrueHarmony technology, which promises better bass and audio clarity. Additionally, it has gigabit ethernet for better data throughput and a dual-fan dual-exhaust cooling system to keep everything inside from getting too hot.
