There’s no fast charging here, which is why the entire charging curve is quite linear. To make matters worse, the palm rejection on Windows is still horrible, which makes the cursor dance all over the screen. Now, it’s kind of weird that Acer highlighted specifically that this laptop supports double M.2 SSDs and another 2.5-inch drive, but it’s obvious that opening this laptop means your warranty is voided.

Speaking of the typing, the Acer Nitro 5 comes with a nearly edge-to-edge keyboard with number pad, and they also managed to retain the full arrow key size too.
