Acer AN517-42-R85s Laptop Review

AN517-42-r85s is one of several variations in Acer's 2022 Nitro 5 series, which comes in both 15- and 17-inch screen sizes with either AMD or Intel processors. This particular model has an RTX 3060 GPU and an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and is priced at around $1,000. That's not the newest or most powerful graphics components, but they should be sufficient to handle most games at high settings and HD resolutions.

The laptop has 2 RAM slots and ships with 16 GB installed, so it's upgradeable. It also has 256 GB storage and is powered by a 58Whr Li-ion battery. In our benchmark tests, the Nitro 5 competed well with other gaming laptops with RTX graphics such as the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE and the Dell XPS 17 9720.
