Gaming laptop acer nitro 5 thoughts??

Anyone want to comment and give me your input.
Im looking for a laptop 16gb ram good ssd and well the 17inch screen is a bonus . Is this acer nitro a decent deal?
Will it play gta 5 fortnight and other aaa titles on decent settings? Im not looking for ultra settings or anything.
Not a crazy gaming just here or there with son or he will use it here and there.

I will also be using a 27 inch monitor with the laptop.
Wanted ryzen but id take intel like this one if its decent.

$999

Or is there a better 800 - 1200 laptop i should go with? im ok with a 15 inch screen but the 17 is a nice bonus for me.

I'd love to get thoughts on this too... My gf is looking for a gaming laptop to play wow shadowlands and I'm trying to get her the best bang for her buck around $1000. Looking to get her 16gb at least. The other stuff uncertain... Have not kept up to date on hardware!

Looks pretty good to me, I think it will handle WOW easily. At 6lbs it is not light but not bad for a 17" screen.

Interested as well, but wanted a more beefier graphics card. Looking into RTX2060 or something...sad that a GTX1650 comes for $1000+. 1650 is an entry level graphics card, that will be outdated by the end of the year.
