Entry level gaming laptop. Quote from the Anandtech Review, Feb 2019:
4.5 hrs battery life web browsingEven with the shortcomings, the Acer Nitro 5 is still a great value. The AMD powered model is even more so. At $669.99 as a starting price, it’s well under most Ultrabooks in terms of cost, yet delivers far more performance. And with the 256GB SSD model running just another $30, it’s a much better 15.6-inch laptop than many you see on the market with 1366x768 displays and 500 GB spinning drives. If you are after a gaming laptop and you’re on a budget, definitely check this model out.

Not going to play 2019 games above Med settings.
I'm just looking for something with a modern-ish CPU and dedicated GPU to play KSP, Civ and Football Manager. Generally I prefer to play games on PS4 but those games are better on PC than a TV IMO and the RX560X should be up to the task, no need for a 1060 etc. I'm struggling to find anything that can match this system at this price point today - even on eBay. Second RAM slot is vacant and accessible for a cheap-ish upgrade in the future.
