A versatile black laptop with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen, the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-59HN takes advantage of fast SSD storage for enhanced responsiveness. This laptop PC is powerful thanks to its Quad Core i5-10300H Intel Comet Lake-H processor and its NVIDIA Turing GTX 1650 graphics card which speeds up processing and can run a number of games. Also on the program are this mobile computer designed to play and create a backlit chiclet keyboard as well as Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-59HN
With its black design with angular lines, this versatile laptop has a decidedly gamer feel.
It is cooled by CoolBoost technology using 2 fans, heat pipes and ventilation grilles. It is possible to control the temperature and speed of the fans through the NitroSense app.
This laptop PC designed to play and create is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard is adorned with a practical backlighting system to better distinguish its keys when the ambient light is limited.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). The screen also benefits from IPS technology which implies significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. However, it should be noted that the colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-59HN
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-59HN is a versatile 15-inch performance laptop with a creative and gaming focus.
It is equipped with a dual graphics solution consisting of a dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing card and an Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor, both allowing you to view photos and videos. It’s NVIDIA Optimus technology that automatically switches between the two in real time, as needed.
In order to promote battery life, the Intel UHD 630 is preferred to the maximum by Optimus despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient. In this area, we can bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
Optimus activates the GeForce GTX 1650 when it comes to performing graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1650 is capable of supporting a number of games if one agrees to adjustments under the opuses greedy in graphic resources to obtain a good playability.
The Intel UHD 630 takes place within the Quad Core i5-10300H, Intel Comet Lake-H processor here associated with 8 GB of RAM. This core delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
It should be noted in particular that the Core i5-10300H guarantees faster processing than a low-consumption Quad Core under work requiring CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Something to interest creators, therefore, especially as the GeForce GTX 1650 has the particularity of speeding up processing under software using GPU computing power (eg Adobe Photoshop).
On the storage side, there is an SSD that is silent but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy and much faster.
Concretely, the SSD guarantees better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, software / game launches, treatments and starts / stops are much faster, as is the arrival on the cards of online games for example.
We are dealing here more specifically with an SSD whose capacity of 512 GB corresponds to the standard among hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, it should be kept in mind that this versatile laptop PC designed to create and play is heard and heats up when strongly pushed (eg processing, games).
