You are not getting 1660 ti for this price.
I just picked up Nitro 5 for 660 at Best Buy and no we can't wait for black Friday because we needed a school laptop anyway, so I picked up this which checks two boxes.
Any 4600H school laptop will not be cheaper than 500. Any i3 these days minimum 400 or so and severely underpowered.

So if anyone can wait, they should always wait.... There will always be better deals, but if you need a laptop and want to game, this one, Nitro 5 or the HP deal are no brainer at this point.

This one has edge on Nitro 5 because this is Ti, and Nitro 5 is not.
4600H is probably faster or in par with 10300. Decision depends on heat production and battery life..
4600H is definitely faster and it actually beats i7-10750H. However, with a GTX 1650 Ti, game performance is more or less similar. It is CPU demanding tasks where 4600H dominates. But Acer Nitro lacks a high refresh rate panel.

Totally correct observation, and the panel is not the best, Nitro seems to suffer from backlight bleed and very thin/flexible or shall I call it flimsy lid. Frown You can manipulate backlight bleed by slightly applying force/warping the lid. Otherwise, speakers are not too loud either but they are very high definition, you can hear every detail, even though they lack low frequency. Surround effect is very very good. The power cord is on the back and it's very sturdy (not a good thing if you trip on it, I wish it was easy disconnect style) When you are gaming fans are pretty loud but that's expected. KB is not bad either.

Panel should have been 120hz at least, I thought it was, but doesn't feel like it, it's got very vibrant colors, but I think blacks are not black enough. For $669, I think Nitro 5 could have been a great device if they offered non-red version with a better enforced lid design, and MicroSD slot.

Also 256GB already almost eaten up. Need to get a 2nd or 3rd drive for Nitro, any suggestions?

2020 Nitro 5 comes with two M.2 slots and one 2.5" slot. So, you can either add another M.2 or SATA III 2.5" SSD. For game storage, my suggestion will be going for a cheaper 2.5" SATA III SSD. Currently Team Group is offering great price and 2.5" 1TB SSD can be found at $79 (GX2 model). You can get the SATA III M.2 from Team Group as well, around $80 for 1TB.
If you want NVMe SSD then ADATA A2000 deal posted here at $99 is a good choice as that is probably the only PCIe NVMe SSD with DRAm caching at this price. It is better than WD SN550, Intel 665P and SABRENT Rocket Q variants.

Thanks, makes sense, I'll probably wait for black Friday then.. it is a 1650 after all and past deals had 1660s at almost same price. I think companies will purge all their "obsolete" stuff on black Friday and I'll try to find a 2060 at least !
when you say 2060 ?Could you give me a link to a example of a laptop with that so I can look into it.

Depends on what you are doing with the space.... Right now, if you need "space" a 2TB WD Blue drive is the way to go.

Hey, I bought this laptop and just wanted to post my experience, as I'd want somebody to do for me. I would stay away from this thing. The hinge broke with light use and there are lots of others that have the same problem if you search. When the hinge broke, it separated the border from the screen, so it's pretty awful. It has a hard time closing and reopening and it's in pretty crappy shape now.

The specs for the price were great and if the hinge issue wasn't a concern I'd recommend it, but it's a hard pass because of the crappy hinge design. Yours will probably break too, no matter how careful you are with it.

I hope this helps somebody out and steers you away. I've given this laptop to my daughter and it stays in one place now. I've picked up something from Costco as the return policy of 90 days is so nice.

Good luck, gaming laptop shoppers.

Thanks for the details. Do games need the NVMe read/write speeds? Maybe they will load a few seconds faster? 1TB for $79 seems OK, I guess prices went up recently?
I couldn't find the ADATA A2000 deal, do you have link for me?

Also the RAM, I think it works OK with 8GB but I might just get another 8 just to be sure there are no issues or slowdows, because I know browsers these day eat through ram easily.

It was Kingston A2000, sorry for the confusion. I was referring the below deal but it has been increased to $120 now. You can keep an eye on this.
https://slickdeals.net/f/14357603-kingston-a2000-1tb-m-2-pcie-3-0x4-nvme-2280-ssd-2200-2000-mb-s-r-w-speed-with-full-security-suite-99-99-f-s?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Regarding gaming, game load time will be faster with PCIe drives but once it is loaded, there won't be any noticeable performance difference between a SATA and PCIe SSD.

If you want NVMe for now, I will suggest Sabrent Rocket SSD @ $120 with $30 clickable coupon now. This is a very fast SSD (I'm using it) and comparable with XPG SX8200 Pro.
https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Ro...07LGF54XR/
OR
https://www.amazon.com/XPG-SX8200-Gen3x4-3000MB-ASX8200PNP-1TT-C/dp/B07K1J3C23​ [amazon.com]

For SATA III 2.5" SSD:
https://www.amazon.com/TEAMGROUP-...07PX2KKHM/
For SATA III M.2 SSD
https://www.newegg.com/team-group...6820331233
For Budget M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD
https://www.newegg.com/mushkin-en...6820226899

The above are for reference, check the prices in SD and various sites before making your purchase. If you are going for NVMe Drive to be used as Game Drive, then even the budget ones will do just fine, no need to spend extra money over $100 for extra performance. Games will not take advantage of that. Instead look for the durability rating or how much write it can handle for its life time. For example, while SABRENT SSDs are cheaper while providing similar performance to some higher priced models, their rated durability are shorter than some name brands like ADATA XPG series.

Regarding Ram, yes, 16GB should be preferred choice for gaming. Is your Acer coming with single 8GB stick or 2x4GB stick?

The SE version with the Ryzen 6-core 12-thread CPU and 5600m has been just under $100 more than this in just the last few days (I believe still is with the same coupon code as in this deal), and it would be a much better purchase for the money. The 5600m tango's with both the 1660ti max-p and the 2060 max-q and only marginally loses to the max-p variants of the 2060, and the Ryzen CPU is just simply 50% more cores and threads with very similar single core performance as the 10300H. You just get a lot more performance for very little extra money.

I think Acer came with 1x8GB, But I have to check it again.

Regarding the drives, I am kinda late to the game so I am having trouble telling the difference between the one that's $80 and one that's $150 (minus $30)

This one 150-30
https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-ROCKET-1TB/dp/B07LGF54XR/?tag=slicinc-... [amazon.com]

and this one $80

Are these completely different technology?

I thought 2.5" had a bay under the laptop but looks like we have to open back cover for any of these upgrades so since we will open anyway, we might as well get m2

Those two are completely different technologies, although using m.2 form factor. Sabrent is PCIe and ms30 is sata iii and lot slower. I think I've posted a deal on XPG SX8800 1TB PCIe nvme SSD at $106. You can get that if you want a fast nvme drive.

That runs really hot under load, exceeding 100 degree C.
