    What do you guys think about the Acer Nitro 5 with the following specs:

    AMD Ryzen 5 5600H
    16GB DDR4 (8+8)
    512GB NVMe SSD
    NVIDIA RTX3060 6GB (85 W max TDP)
    17.3 FHD 1920x1080 IPS 144Hz
    HDMI (Input and output 2.1 port with HDCP support), USB 3.2 Gen 2 port featuring power-off USB charging, 2xUSB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, USB Type-C port: USB 3.2 Gen 2 (up to 10 Gbps)
    57.5 Wh 4-cell Li-ion (9h)

    I'm from Croatia so this goes for about 1300 euro which is a great price here. I usually buy laptops from Germany but it seems that currently there are no models which would suit me in price/performance. This one does greatly.

    Anyone have good/bad experience with the Nitro 5 series?

    I know a lot of people like them for their price to performance ratio, but I personally have had nothing but bad luck with Acer laptops, regardless of product line (Swift, Nitro, Predator). Given your limited options, that looks like a solid buy. Just be sure to thoroughly test it when you get it, and make sure the retailer has a good return policy in the event that it has issues.

    Acer monitors are awesome, though.
