Features We Like
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) has a stylish but classy look. The device is sleek but doesn't feel slippery to the touch. The back cover has a high-quality finish, and it feels more like leather than plastic.
Supports up to three storage drives.
The Acer Nitro 7 has three storage drive slots. You can connect up to three storage drives and carry on using them all.
Non-slip and sturdy.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) is really sturdy, it's non-slippery to the touch. The entire device feels solid and sturdy in the hand from top to bottom, with a great balance between quality and weight. And the device's hinge is almost vertical, which allows for a lot of room for your hands without feeling cramped at all.
Features We Don't Like
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) is a pretty heavy laptop to lug around. It's not exactly heavy as far as high-end laptops are concerned, but the keyboard and screen are both fairly heavy. Even if you have a bag that can handle a 15-inch laptop, you're going to feel the weight of Acer Nitro 7 (2020).
Red keyboard backlighting is cliché.
Although the Acer Nitro 7 (2020) has a backlit keyboard, it sometimes looks like the backlight is in a rather awkward place. The keys are shiny and bright red, but they're not in a great place to make an impact when you're typing.
No flash-card reader.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) doesn't have a flash-card reader. And that's pretty disappointing, especially if you're someone who likes to use SD cards from time to time. This is a little weird because the Acer Nitro 5 had one.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) has a very appealing look and design. It's sturdy and thick enough to balance out its weight, and the lid is nice and solid. The hinge is almost vertical, which gives you plenty of room to work with the laptop without feeling cramped at all.
The 1920×1080 resolution screen is sharp and clear; while it's not the brightest panel, it looks good for a gaming laptop at this price point. The display technology is IPS, which means that the viewing angles are also excellent for watching movies or playing games on this machine.
The Acer Nitro 7 was the cheapest laptop in our round-up, but don't be fooled by the price: it's a powerful machine, with the latest-generation night-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB solid-state drive.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) has only one USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 port, with power delivery via the same cable, so you don't need two different cables. There are also four USB type A and two HDMI ports. The back of the laptop has an ethernet port and a headphone jack.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) laptop comes with a Bang & Olufsen speaker system, which is not as good as some of the other systems in this price range.
We recommend you get yourself an external sound system if you're planning on listening to music or movies on this laptop. If you want a decent pair of speakers for your gaming and media needs, we recommend the Sades SA926 Hegel Stereo System.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) has said it runs for up to 11 hours. That's a pretty high number considering every laptop in this range runs somewhere around 7-8 hours, which is dismal.
And the Nitro 7 might not be the best choice if you're a gamer, as its Intel HD graphics chip can't handle heavy games as effectively as the Nvidia GeForce MX150 (if you have a model with Nvidia graphics, that is).
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) storage drive is a 512GB solid-state drive. This is a fast drive, and it's better than having a mechanical hard disk. It's pretty decent and it won't let you down unless you're running some really CPU-heavy applications that do not leave any room for the SSD to breathe.
The Acer Nitro 7 (2020) laptop comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU, which is a mid-range card. The card has 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, which should be enough if you're running at least two 1920×1080 screens. But if you want to run three or four screens at once, then you'll need to invest in a more powerful GPU if you want to do so without sacrificing battery life.
Should I Buy This Laptop?
The Acer Nitro 7 costs less than $2,000. Many people find that this is a great price for a gaming laptop, especially as it has all the features and components you'd expect in a gaming laptop. It's not the best gaming laptop in the world, but it's good enough for most gamers who are on a budget.
