    I have acer nitro 5 2018 144hz, I just buy it 1 month ago I use for school and games and it's very cool but still if I just know that they have 2019 version of it I definitely will chose it. Well I didn't know it has 2019 version because I didn't search enough and just want to have a budget gaming laptop. Can I ask if It's worth upgrading the ram, and M. 2? Well it works perfectly but still I want to upgrade it can someone help me what is compatible ssd and M. 2 for my laptop. Hope someone will help. Thank you

    Hope you can do a review for 2019 acer nitro 5 ryzen version (3550h & rx560x). Already ordering this one and although I have seen many reviews, it would be great to see your video review for it.

    I got the 2019 1660ti i7 and overclocked the screen to 90hz and it’s great! No problems so far

  17. Jay Dee says:

    The market price range for this aren't people who upgrade year to year… the hell lmao

  18. Boda Deez says:

    My experience with it:
    -Overheats fast
    -Needs to be plugged into the wall to actually be any good at gaming
    -Wifi adapter randomly drops connection.

    But it games fine.

  19. Twitchy says:

    I can afford both of these laptops but I don't like the storage capacity, is it really worth to buy?

  20. Tøng says:

    Watching this on the old laptop 😕

  21. Neon Valkyrja says:

    Nitro 5 looks (and can perform) decently enough, until you actually feel your fingers aching from the heat, not to mention your thighs already well done if not completely burnt. In all honesty, heat is the only issue i have with the Nitro 5 series (but it is something that really bothers me a lot)
