ASUS FX503 vs Acer Nitro 5 – what are the differences?

For the purposes of this comparison between the laptops ASUS FX503 and Acer Nitro 5, we are using their models that feature NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPUs and 1000GB HDD.

Starting off with hardware options, both laptops come with a 7th generation Intel Core i5-7300HQ processors and as we mentioned, their graphics cards are also the same. In terms of memory capacity, there is again no difference – you are presented with 8GB of DDR4 RAM.

Although the two models accommodate a 15.6-inch panel with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, the Acer Nitro 5 stands out with its IPS matrix as opposed to the TN one in its rival. The display of the former is not the greatest but it doesn’t use PWM across all brightness levels and combined with our custom profiles the colors become significantly more accurate. Its price is also lower starting at $699.

As far as the overall dimensions are concerned, the Nitro 5 is slightly lighter weighing 20 grams less than its competitor – 2.48 kg (5.5 lbs) vs 2.50 kg (5.5 lbs). However, ASUS FX503 is the thinner one with a 24 mm profile. And finally – the differences in the connectivity options. Even though ASUS FX503 offers more USB 3.0 Type-A ports, the Acer representative sports a USB 3.0 Type-C port which is not only more compact but it also provides higher data speeds.

With all that said, we can conclude that the Acer Nitro 5 is the total winner in this comparison.
