too much used to be 550£
Good price for a nitro with 1060
While a good price for the spec anyone buying this needs to manage their expectations. That cpu and 8gb RAM are going to be a significant limitation in the latest cpu heavy games.
A decent deal...
Paid this over a year ago on prime day for near identical spec, albeit for a 7th gen quad i5. 1060 still pretty decent for most games if you turn off fancy effects - a good 25-40% quicker than a 1650 still, however for some VR it struggles with some games now, like project cars 2 and no man's sky even on min settings

Lies. The 6GB GTX 1060 Acer Nitro 5 has never been this price. Maybe you just saw Acer Nitro 5 and assumed they're all the same...

No it's not. 8GB is plenty to start with (and cheap to upgrade if it's not) and the 8300H is a pretty decent quad-core with HT and high max Turbo.

I didn’t say it was bad, just to manage expectations. 8gb will stutter in some games, upgrading is easy but remember adding 8gb comes with a small risk of issues and only buying a 16gb kit is guaranteed to work without issue. The cpu is mediocre, will do an ok job but in cpu heavy games isn’t going to push over 100fps to take full advantage of the 144Hz display.

8GB shouldn’t stutter with 6GB VRAM and this isn’t a top-end machine anyway so you’re not expecting to run at high settings over 100fps in AAA games. The CPU is not mediocre... it’s a gaming laptop not a desktop with no power or thermal constraints.
CPU is roughly 20% faster than the 6700HQ in my laptop, which also has a 1060 6GB, and I can play games fine.
Can't believe how cheap powerful gaming laptops have gotten since the new chips came out.

The GTX 1060 6GB is still a potent and decent chip, mostly because Turing didn’t have a die shrink or massive efficiency changes unlike from Maxwell before it.

That's got a completely different processor and graphics card, also has standard Hard Drive and small SSD compared to a 512gb SSD and its refurbished?
Thanks. Ordered for my son who just started at Uni. I checked everywhere for a similar spec and nothing really came close. Dell Outlet has a G3 gaming laptop with the cpu/ram but 256gb ssd and 1050 gpu, for £650 today. Currys have a Nitro 5 with a 1050 for £650 which after my company discount I can get for £600 but there's a massive difference between a 1050 and a 1060. The extra £99 is worth spending today IMO.

I've been buying laptops and PCs for decades and checked everywhere that I know and trust, can't find anything that beats this deal today. Never bought an Acer gaming laptop though. Reviews written and on Youtube for this model are good (there are better alternatives apparently, eg VX 15, but can't find any that I can actually buy). Hope it's not a dud.
