Acer has unveiled a new convertible gaming laptop, the Nitro 5 Spin. But rather than going after the hardcore crowd that as the mention of the word "gaming" might imply, Acer is instead going squarely for casual gamers.
The 15.6-inch laptop sports an all-aluminum build with a black exterior and red accents. Inside, the laptop's graphics oomph is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, which should be powerful enough to run things like Dota 2 and Overwatch, Acer says.
The other highlight of this particular machine is Acer's choice of processors: The Nitro 5 Spin can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i7 processor from Intel's eighth-generation Core processor family. Intel only just unveiled its eighth-generation processors, which it says will pack a 40 percent performance increase over their predecessors.
Other notable tidbits include up to 512GB of SSD storage, Windows Hello support, and up to ten hours of battery life.
As for pricing and availability, Acer says you'll be able to grab the Nitro 5 Spin in North America starting in October starting at $999. European countries, meanwhile, will also see the Nitro 5 Spin in October starting at €1,199.
