With a tighter budget? Check out the Acer Nitro 5 i7/8GB/512GB/RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop $800 instead of this. Here you’re using the 12th Gen Intel i5 processor with RTX 3050 graphics, which is an evolution of the 3060 that comes with the Acer option mentioned above. The screen is slightly smaller at 15.6 inches and offers a resolution and refresh rate of 1080p at 144Hz. The total amount of RAM available here is also reduced to 8GB, although that’s still enough for most modern games to run well. Wi-Fi 6 support is also present here. A unique feature of the Nitro 5 that isn’t found in many laptops is the Alexa Show mode, which allows you to use the device as a Show-like device when you’re not busy gaming.
