Acer Aspire 5

 

A decent quality mid-range laptop. Acer Aspire 5.

Smart design ; Good all-round performance ; Keeps cool and quiet

A515 version has poor screen ; Cramped cursor keys ; No keyboard backlight

A decent quality mid-range laptop – but be mindful of the version you buy.

Acer Aspire 5 review

 

An affordable laptop that doesn't feel budget

Good battery life ; Up-to-date components ; Good build quality ; Decent performance ; Well priced

Cheap-feeling touchpad ; Screen isn’t the most vibrant ; Not as light and thin as other laptops

The Acer Aspire 5 is a mid-range laptop that ticks pretty much all the boxes you’d want for a day-to-day laptop: it performs most tasks well, plays media fine and has a very good battery life, all for a compelling price.

Acer Aspire 5 (2018) review: An affordable mid-range laptop with some key flaws

 

Great performance and battery life but some elements could be improved

Good value ; Great performance at this price point ; Nice keyboard

Awful display ; Chunky design

With a good selection of ports, a full-sized keyboard and impressive battery life, in fact, there’s plenty to like about this mid-range laptop. It’s a shame about the poor display, but if you can put up with that or you’re planning to use it hooked up...

Acer Aspire 5 (2017) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Acer Aspire 5 A-515 is a mid-priced 15.6-inch laptop with an Intel i5 processor, so it should make for a decent everyday machine, as long as it can tick our other boxes. Acer models in the past have fallen slightly flat when it comes to sound and...

Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop Review: Bulky Value

 

The Acer Nitro 5 represents a great balance between price and performance. It's built sturdy and handles heat and battery life like a champ. However, it can be heavy and unwieldy, and its looks aren't for everyone. Owners of the Acer Nitro 5 will be...

Excellent build quality ; Decent SSD speeds ; Outstanding battery life and cooling ; Good value

Polarizing aesthetics ; CPU bottlenecks synthetic performance ; GPU won't play games at max settings ; Better value alternatives available

The Acer Nitro 5 strikes a great balance between price and performance. However, it can be heavy and unwieldy, and its looks aren't for everyone.

Review: Acer Nitro 5 gaming notebook

 

I received an Acer Nitro 5 review unit for purpose of reviewing the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset and controllers. The Acer Nitro 5 features the latest 8th generation Intel processors, a minimum requirement for mixed reality VR playback and control.

There are many notable gaming notebooks in the market right now, but few are as affordable and competent as the Acer Nitro 5. Serious gamers will likely look elsewhere, but anyone who wants to dip their toes into next generation VR and PC gaming...

Acer Aspire 5 review

 

The Acer Aspire 5 is a do-it-all laptop that won't bust your budget.

Solid processor performance ; Low price for a solid state drive ; Decent build quality for the money ; Plethora of ports

Screen is dim and seriously lacks in colors and contrast ; Battery life could be better ; Keyboard isn’t backlit

Build quality, lightweight gaming performance, and productivity chops are what separate the Acer Aspire 5 from some other budget laptop alternatives. The display sets it back, though, with a dimness and lack of contrast that makes using it far less...

Acer Nitro 5 (2018, AMD Ryzen)

 

If you think making an under-$1,000 gaming laptop is tough, try an under-$700 one: The AMD-based Acer Nitro 5 grabs the bottom rung of the 1080p gaming ladder and delivers decent value.

Low price. Satisfactory screen. SSD boot drive in a budget gaming laptop. Easy to add a second SSD or hard drive. Right on the edge of playable 1080p performance at high detail settings.

256GB SSD won't hold many games. Hard-to-read keyboard legends. Balky touchpad. Marginal battery life.

Bottom Line: If you think making an under-$1,000 gaming laptop is tough, try an under-$700 one: The AMD-based Acer Nitro 5 grabs the bottom rung of the 1080p gaming ladder and delivers decent value.

Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51-58HD)

 

Intel's Optane Memory perks up the 1TB hard drive of Acer's $500 Aspire 5 laptop, but a dim screen and tepid performance will keep it off budget buyers' short lists.

Intel Optane Memory boosts hard drive speed. 1080p resolution. Comfortable keyboard.

Dim, dark display. Scanty 4GB of system RAM. Lackluster battery life. No SSD, backlit keyboard, touch screen, or Windows Hello support.

Bottom Line: Intel's Optane Memory perks up the 1TB hard drive of Acer's $500 Aspire 5 laptop, but a dim screen and tepid performance will keep it off budget buyers' short lists.
