The new Acer Nitro 5 series that is powered by AMD Ryzen 5 is a good gaming laptop for the features that you get, not to mention the cheap price tag. Although it still retains the built quality over the previous Intel powered Nitro 5 but for the price of under 700 dollars nothing to really complain. But I wish they included a SSD storage for faster loading of windows and some of your favorite games.
