In CES 2024, Acer announced its refresh of the affordable Nitro 17 laptop with new CPUS …and not much more! In this article, let’s take a look at the Acer Nitro 17 (2024) , its specifications, upgrades, expected price in Nepal, and availability. 

Acer Nitro 17 (2024) Overview: 

Design and Display

The new Acer Nitro 17 (AN17-72) is very similar to its AN17-71 predecessor in the design department. The Nitro logo in the middle, the plastic build, and the heft (3.2 kgs) are all here to stay. I guess you could call the ‘Co-pilot’ key on the 4-zone RGB keyboard a ‘new’ feature but that’s about it. The exact dimensions read 400.2 (W) x 293.25 (D) x 27.9/28.9 (H) mm.

As the name suggests, the Nitro 17 ships with a 17.3-inch IPS panel. Configurations can go up to 165Hz refresh rate, QHD resolution, and full DCI-P3 color coverage. There’s also support for NVIDIA G-Sync and advanced Optimus for an ideal gaming experience.

Performance and Memory

Nitro 17 (2024) comes equipped with 14th Generation Intel Core Raptor Lake refresh chips. This is not to be confused with the Meteor Lake Core Ultra processors which are manufactured using a newer Intel 4 process. That being said, you can configure the machine with a Core i5-14450HX, Core i7-14650HX, or Core i7-14700HX. 

GPU options include NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 (6GB GDDR6), and RTX 4060 (8GB GDDR6) chips. Besides that, the new Nitro 17 supports up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM and 2TB of Gen 4 SSD. 

For cooling the gaming machine, Acer has included dual fans, a quad intake and quad exhaust system, vector heat pipes over processors, and liquid metal on the CPU.

Battery and Ports

Fueling the Nitro 17 (2024) is a 90Wh battery. Connectivity options include WiFi 6E (Intel Killer DoubleShot Pro), Ethernet, and Bluetooth 5.3. 

On the wired side of things, you get 2 USB C ports on the back alongside an HDMI port and a DC-in port. The rest of the ports including  3 USB A ports (1x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2), ethernet, 3.5mm audio jack, and micro SD card reader are spread across the sides.
