Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55 56AF

I'm not good at hardware specs. Can anyone advice why this particular laptop is cheaper than the other 2 laptops when it is sporting a RTX 2060?

The other 2 laptops only have GTX 1650Ti and GTX 1660Ti respectively but more expensive. Is the CPU decent for gaming? and I know 8GB of RAM is little but I can't seem to find anywhere online that sells 2933MHz DDR4 RAM.

So, that's the catch? Is it still a good deal compared to the other 2?

Probs cheaper since they might be clearing i5 stock. For that price, it's a good deal.

Thanks! I will consider getting it as it's the cheapest of the lot.

I just checked Acer's official store on Lazada. They have $80 coupon that brings down the price to $1718. In case anyone else is considering as well.

2060 is the best gpu amongst all

But 8gb ram and i5 lose out

Yes, do note the 8 GB ram as well. It won't be good enough to run multiple virtual machines if you intend to do so.
