Today Acer unveiled their latest gaming laptop, the Nitro 5 Spin, which is being marketed as one of the first 2-in-1 gaming laptops that are available on the market.

On top of that, the Acer Nitro 5 Spin is also a new hybrid that features Intel’s latest 8th-generation processor, the new Kaby Lake Refresh processors, with up to a Core i7 configuration available.

It also comes with a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card unit with PCIe SSD storage that can be configured to up to 512GB, and that’s all with up to a 10 hour battery life.

However, despite all of that, Acer is only marketing it as a “casual gaming’ laptop, so they don’t expect the system to perform extremely well. They do say that it should perform just fine for games like Overwatch or League of Legends.

Of course, one of its biggest features is that it is a 2-in-1 computer.

It features a foldable aluminium chassis that house a 15.6-inch IPS display that has Full HD resolution and Acer’s Color Intelligence technology inbuilt, which has been designed to adjust the gamma and saturation settings in order to achieve the best picture possible.

There’s also a pair of front-facing speakers on the front that come alongside an inbuilt subwoofer, building that experience out to sound as well.

And that still isn’t all that the Nitro 5 Spin has.

It also comes with a full backlit keyboard with a fingerprint reader, and an omni-directional ‘ExoAmp Antenna’, which supports MU-MIMO wireless.

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin is due to go on sale in October with a starting price of $999, or €1,199 over in Europe.
