It is in this spirit that Acer has developed this Nitro AN515-55-50BL – GTX.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. Material that seem to be well-designed.
It’s a big screen that you have: 15 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. The processor at the heart of this laptop, a Core i5-10300H, is a rational choice. Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component. A logical decision in relation to the intended use of this computer: surfing the Internet and sufficient computing power.

The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.3 kg.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
On the sound side, it Nitro AN515-55-50BL – GTX has good components: board and integrated speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The Nitro AN515-55-50BL – GTX has a processor Core i5-10300H, a little more powerful than average, compared to those dedicated to office automation. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals. You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 8 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
