Acer has lifted the curtains of the new Nitro gaming laptops at the ongoing CES 2023—packed with the latest 13th Gen Intel processors and RTX 40-series GPUs. In this article, we will discuss the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Acer Nitro 17 (2023) in Nepal.

Acer Nitro 17 (2023) Overview:

Before we start talking about the new hardware, we must talk about Acer’s new convention. As usual, the Nitro brand is home to the company’s budget gaming lineup. That said, Acer has gotten rid of the Nitro 5 and Nitro 7 moniker and is representing the new gaming laptops by their display sizes.

Display and Design

As the name suggests, Acer Nitro 17 (2023) comes with a 17.3 ” display. It is available with a 144Hz FHD or a 165Hz QHD screen. The overall design of the screen is pretty much the same across both models (16 and 17). You get an all-plastic body. The chassis weighs around 3 kg and measures 28.9mm at its thickest point.
