Because of its high performance to price ratio, Acer Nitro 5 2018 (8th gen) was already the best-selling laptop at our store. And the craze for Nitro 5 only peaked after the addition of the 9th gen 2019 model.
The laptop comes with the Intel Core i5-9300H processor, which is undoubtedly one of the notable performers at this price.

When it comes to gaming, you will get NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 GPU here. And the GPU is capable enough to handle most of the gaming titles out there.
As for the storage, there is 1TB of HDD and 128GB of SSD. SSD will help you load up your games and that substantial HDD lets you store all your bulky files and photos. So you will get the best of both worlds. Talking about the display, you get a 15.6-inch Full-HD panel here, which should suffice your gaming needs. Furthermore, there is a Red backlit keyboard, which should help you play games even in the dark environment.
With the powerful hardware and its quirks, we found the Acer Nitro 5 2019 to be the best budget gaming laptop. But if you want better processing power rather than its gaming prowess, you can also get the Acer Nitro 7 2018 at the same price. It comes with the 8th gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor, which offers slightly better performance than the Nitro 5 2019. However, the Nitro 7 2018 comes with GTX 1050Ti graphics. So the GPU performance will not be as swift as the Nitro 5 2019. So there is that!

On to the storage front, you will get a 256GB of SSD storage. Although SSD provides a faster read/write speed, 256GB of storage may not suffice everyone’s needs. In that case, you can spend a couple of thousands to buy an internal SSD or a portable HDD.
