The Indian consumers are now having multiple choices for their requirements as the brands are actually putting strong efforts to attract more and more buyers. Talking about the latest release by Acer, their targeted audience is mostly the gaming souls who are dedicated gamers and want laptops which are specifically designed for the gaming purpose only.
Let us go through the specifications of the newly launched Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptops in India.

Considering the price range of the laptop, it is definitely not the ideal catch for many Indian buyers. The gaming enthusiasts will be the ones attracted to these laptop ranges even after such heavy pricing of these laptops. Yes, you cannot deny the fact that if you seek for latest technology then you have to pay for it as well but the maximum buyers in India are generic buyers who calculate all the aspects and the price range is one such factor that is always on the top of the criteria for buying laptops.
Talking about the current times when the companies like Xiaomi have stepped in the laptop market and introduced their first-ever laptop series which is an exclusive release for India, the brand is majorly famous among Indians for their cheap price labels and even this time they have introduced laptops which are available for about 50, 000 INR. If we consider these factors for Acer’s Nitro 5 laptops, then they have some serious competition despite their sole focus being on the gaming aspect. In the coming times, we will not be surprised if Acer might come up with some discounts on their Nitro 5 laptops range. So keep your eyes on the pricing of these laptops if you are an eager buyer and we would suggest you to have some patience and wait a while before spending your money on Nitro 5 because the wait may help you save some bucks!
