A great gaming laptop doesn’t have to break the bank, and that’s especially true on Cyber Monday.
Acer is currently selling its 15.6in Nitro 5 laptop for just $729.99 with a hefty $420 discount. That’s an impressive 40% off its $1,049 RRP, and almost unheard of for a device with these specs.
That’ll get you an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD – you can expect top-tier performance as a result.
But there are also some big discounts on other models. Doubling the RAM (16GB) and storage (512GB) will now cost you $799.99 with a $400 discount, but there are also cheaper models.
These start at $599.99 ($200 off) for a GTX 1650 GPU, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD, while upgrading the graphics to an RTX 3050 will set you back $699.99 – that’s $400 off.
If you’d rather something powered by AMD, the newer Ryzen 7 6800H model is down to $1,499.99 with a $300 discount.
The deals aren’t quite as appealing in the UK, but Currys does have £50, £100 and £300 discounts, depending on the specs you choose.
It’s easy to see why you might want to buy one. The Acer Nitro 5 is one of the best cheap gaming laptops you can buy, offering a great price to performance ratio even at full price.
Alongside the specs mentioned above, you can also expect a Full HD (1920×1080) display with 144Hz refresh rate for silky-smooth visuals. There’s also dual stereo speakers, up to eight hours of battery life and loads of ports – including USB-C, USB-A, HDMI and Ethernet.
It’s worth noting that there is a 2022 version of the Nitro 5 with 12th-gen Intel processors, but this slightly older model will offer everything most people are looking for. It already runs Windows 11 Home out of the box, so you don’t need to worry about that.
Acer hasn’t said when these deals will expire, but prices may change once Cyber Monday is over. If you’re considering a new gaming laptop, take advantage while you still can.
