I recently purchased Acer Nitro 5 from Harvey Norman particularly the i7 11800H model with RTX 3060.
I have had nothing but problems with this laptop. despite some people claiming that it comes with Thuderbolt it dosent.
the USB C port has not ALT mode whatsoever to push video signal so rules out a 2/3 monitor setup. you are stuck with single output monitor.
the system overheats but most importantly the power supply is insufficient so battery drains even gaming when plugged in.
moreover, you will loose most frames in-game if the power requirement is too much. for example CS-GO 1080P high setting I would go from 280-300+ frames to 5-10 FPS stutter mess in game for no reason whatsoever, CPU-GPU temps are at 70C but no biggie. the only thing I can point out is the dingy little PSU not enough to push 95W on the GPU and 50+ watts on the CPU at the same time with all other peripherals.
dont try to save a few bucks and DO NOT purchase Acer Nitro 5 3060 particularly the I7 version. BPC tech's Kraken laptop looks like a much better deal with ful;l powered 3070s or 3060s.
you have been warned.
my particular link is this one.
after a week of painful diagnosis, I finally contacted Harvey Norman 2 days ago and today they provided full refund. The laptop is out of stock everywhere so they couldn't offer me a replacement.
Harvey Norman tech was really good. The key issue with this laptop is the CPU power failure causing ssd power failure turning everything slow untill battery is fully charged up and power supply is less heated.
Again if you are looking to buy this laptop, you have been warned. There is some underlying issue with this laptop either it's the power delivery or something else.
