Help in choosing gaming laptop

Hi All,

I am choosing betwwen three ACER Nitro 5 gaming laptops

1) AMD Ryzen 5 3550H, 4GB,
AMD Radeon RX 560X, Cost around 564 USD



2) Intel core i5 9th gen 9300H,
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 3GB, Cost: Around 607 USD

3) Intel Core i5, 8th gen 8300H, NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 4GB, cost around 593 USD

Which one should I go for? Is Acer Nitro brand reliable? Because they are really much cheaper than comparable models from other brands like Dell.

Thanks a lot

Here's a review of the ACER Nitro 5.


If your in to games like: Elders Scrolls Online, or any other heavy graphics games.
Your not going to be happy with it, even if you max out it's Memory to 8Gbs, and use a SSD for a performance boost.
Because the bottle neck will be the Onboard GPU, with only 4Gb of Memory.

If you don't need a portable computer, don't get one. Get a PC instead. There really is no such thing as a good gaming notebook.

Consider this. They can pack the horsepower of a PC computer into a tiny notebook case, but not the cooling. And even a quality tower case, with its many large fans is challenged to keep the innards cool, stable and running at full speeds. No way a tiny notebook case can provide that level of cooling.

While AMD makes great processors, I prefer Intel. So with that, as seen here, the 9th Gen 9300H offers slightly better performance.
