Acer Nitro 5 Spin: Play and draw on the gaming-convertible

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 | Gadgets

The computer manufacturer Acer has added another model to its gaming notebook series Nitro 5. At the Gamescom 2017, the Taiwanese will present the Nitro 5 spin. Unusual for a 15.6 inch gaming notebook are the 360 ​​degree hinge including full HD touch screen and stylus and the relatively large battery. Apart from that, it is a mid-class notebook that Acer markets for casual gamers.

The brushed aluminum case weighs 2.2 kilograms and includes an Intel processor of the generation Coffee Lake. The graphics performance comes from an Nvidia GTX 1050, which is sufficient for most games. On a PCIe SSD with 512 GB of memory, games can be installed. This is probably an SSD in the M.2 format. In addition, a 1 TB HDD can be configured. Acer did not know the size of the memory.
There are three USB Type A and two USB Type C connectors on the chassis side. In addition, the notebook has an HDMI output. However, an RJ45 port seems to be missing for wired Ethernet, which is important for gamers. The keyboard is backlit with red LEDs. The battery should be particularly large and according to Acer for 10 hours hold. This is a high value for a gaming system.
Use a notebook as a desktop
The 360-degree hinge of the Acer Nitro 5 Spin allows you to fold the notebook into a kind of all-in-one device where the keyboard is not in the way of external peripherals. In addition, Acer supplies an input pen with 1,024 print stages so that the device can also be used as a graphics station.

The Nitro 5 Spin will be available in October 2017. Shortly before that, Intel's Coffee-Lake CPUs will probably be sold. The device will cost from 1,300 euros – a high price for a little more flexibility.
