Last week, I ordered two Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptops to replace the rather underwhelming and malfunctioning CHUWI HeroBook Pro laptops that my older two received for their birthdays in November.
A comparison of the two machines:
|Component||CHUWI HeroBook Pro||Acer Nitro 5|
|CPU||Intel Gemini Lake N4000||AMD Ryzen 5 4600H|
|RAM||8 GB||8 upgraded to 32 GB DDR4|
|GPU||Integrated||GeForce GTX 1650|
|HDD||256 GB SSD||512 GB SSD|
|Screen||14″ Full HD 1920 × 1080 59Hz||15.6″ Full HD 1920 × 1080 144Hz|
I upgraded the RAM from the 8GB that it came with, and see that it has space for a couple of hard drive upgrades. Very impressive.
As far as performance goes. The Nitro 5 boots to Windows 10 in about 10 seconds. Reuben reports that his old laptop used to draw 8 blocks in Minecraft for Windows 10, the Nitro 5 draws 56. That’s quite a boost!
