Back in April, Acer refreshed its gaming portfolio of laptops and also introduced a few new models. One of them was the Nitro 7, a new series in the Nitro gaming laptop family, designed to offer a more premium experience compared to the Nitro 5, for the casual gaming crowd.

Acer Nitro 7 Summary

The Acer Nitro 7 doesn't have a flashy design, which is something we really like. The monolithic build looks slick, and the black paint job doesn't attract smudges very easily. The 15.6-inch IPS display has a full-HD resolution (1920x1080) and a 144Hz refresh rate. We found the brightness to be more than adequate for indoor use.

The chiclet-style keyboard keys are well spaced and have good travel, which makes them responsive for typing. The keys have red backlighting, with four levels of brightness. The Nitro 7 doesn't offer easy access to the RAM and storage, so you'll have to remove the entire base, which is held in place by Philips screws.

Our review model features an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 1TB SSD storage (2x 512GB NVMe SSDs in RAID 0), and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM. The laptop also boasts of Acer's CoolBoost technology, which is said to increase fan speed by 10 percent compared to Auto mode. There's even a dedicated button in the Number pad area to launch Acer's Nitro Sense program. 

Windows 10 was quick to boot, apps loaded quickly, and the 144Hz refresh rate made everything feel snappy and fluid. The display panel produced good colours and the brightness was more than adequate for indoor use. The Nitro 7 also ran quiet and didn't get too hot when we weren't doing anything intensive. The top-end spec that we reviewed also delivered a very enjoyable gaming experience.

Even though Acer claims battery life of up to 7 hours, we realistically managed about 4-5 hours of non-stop usage on a single charge, which is not terrible but could have been better.

    I've been using an Acer Nitro 7 for the past 1.5 years. I only had to give it for servicing once in that time frame. Excellent performance, and battery is also quite good. It gives me around 5 hours on 10% brightness in normal surfing, and around 4 hours for watching videos. It's got features on par with laptops double it's price. I mainly use it for video editing, but even gaming is excellent. Brilliant product.
