Acer has announced the new Acer Nitro 5 Spin, a convertible notebook designed for casual gaming. It boasts up to 10 hours of battery life and comes with an all-aluminum chassis with a black brushed hairline finish and red accents.

Equipped with up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics and GDDR5 VRAM , the Nitro 5 Spin delivers the performance needed for casual gaming, according to the vendor. A PCIe SSD of up to 512GB capacity ensures the system boots up fast and stays responsive. It is paired with a 15.6-inch IPS display, backlit keyboard and an audio system consisting of two speakers and one subwoofer.

Acer's omni-directional ExoAmp Antenna optimizes the Nitro 5 Spin's antenna position to ensure a stable wireless signal, regardless of the antenna being located beneath the notebook's metal cover and the direction the device is facing. It also includes MU-MIMO wireless technology for up to three times faster downloads, smoother streaming and a better browsing experience than other 11ac products in a multi-user environment, according to Acer.
