Acer Aspire ES1-131 Notebook Review

 

Braswell upgrade. Acer's little 11.6-inch laptop attracts attention with noiseless operation and a long battery life. That makes life difficult for Chromebooks.

Matte screen, Noiseless operation, Long battery life, 2-year warranty

Cannot be upgraded, Limited storage

Easily portable, light and compact.

Only for use as a browser, storage is only 32MG which I didn't realise when I bought it. I've been advised to buy a card to extend storage.
