Acer updates Nitro 5 gaming laptop with faster, better graphics

Acer updates Nitro 5 gaming laptop with faster, better graphics

So if you're looking to buy the thinnest laptop in the world, you should know there's a new candidate in town that will be available in United States stores around March.

Besides the 10-hour battery life, the company touted the quietness of the fanless laptop. It will be available in May with prices starting at $799. Ports include two USB 3.1, a single USB, and HDMI, along with an SD card slot; sadly there's no USB Type-C, however. The company says customers will be able to "play games, stay productive, enjoy content and do even more with the new Acer Chromebook 11" with Google Play. The laptop is slim and weighs only 2.43 pounds. At just 9mm thin, it packs a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 CPU under the hood, helping to power its 14-inch touchscreen display with a 1080p resolution and fronted by protective Gorilla Glass. The CB311-8H is a non-touch display laptop.

Apart from the Chromebook 11, Acer also revealed other notebooks this week, the Swift 7, the Acer Spin 3 and the Nitro 5 gaming laptop.

Acer is staking out the premium business and budget ends of the laptop market with the Swift 7, billed as the world's thinnest laptop, and Acer Chromebook 11, respectively. The laptop supports both laptop and tablet modes, thanks to its 360-degree dual-torque hinge, and a newer 8th-gen Intel Core processor that the Swift 7 line lacks. United Kingdom and AU availability have yet to be announced, but that starting price converts to about £590 and AU$1,020.

The Swift 7, which will run $1,699 in North America starting in March, follows a well-worn playbook for PC makers.

As well as stepping up to a Ryzen mobile processor (where previously there was a choice of AMD A-Series APUs, if you didn't want to go with the Intel Kaby Lake-powered model), Acer has upgraded the GPU to a Radeon RX 560X (from an RX 550).

The Acer Spin 3 laptop is also a new device destined to offer buyers "all-day productivity and entertainment".
