Acer Aspire ES1-512 review

 

This notebook offers a great combination of features

The price ; Impressive battery life ; A good bunch of components bar the processor ; Has an optical disc drive

Feeble processing power ; Non-removable battery ; A lot of bloatware ; Annoying screen glare

The Acer Aspire ES1-512 shows that you can actually get more than you bargained for, especially if you manage to purchase this machine during flash sales.

Acer Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM Notebook Review

 

A good "Start". A good "Start". Acer's entry-level office laptop with the somewhat bulky name Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM can score with a long battery life and useful keyboard among other things. However, is that enough to prevail over the multitude...

Windows 8.1 included, Robust, matte surfaces, Decent keyboard, Full-sized number pad, Large touchpad, Cool surfaces, CPU's good Turbo utilization, Quiet operating noise, Long battery life, 24-month warranty, Matte, sufficiently bright screen

The Best Cheap Laptop Under $250

 

The $250 Aspire E 15 (ES1-512-C9Y5) is my default pick because it's one of the few $250 laptops that comes with 4GB of RAM. This alone meant it outperformed all the other cheap laptops I tried. The E 15 didn't choke when I taxed it with up to 20...

Acer Aspire ES1-512 NX.MRWEK.002

 

I was recommended this specific model by a friend who works in IT and describes Apple products as 'an expensive lifestyle choice for people who know little about technology.'

The mouse pad takes a while to get used to. Lots of bloatware annoying to the digitally hygienic. No light for caplock just a brief display of change on screen. Ditto Numlock.

Acer Aspire ES1-512 NX.MRWEK.002

 

Good vivid screen and quite good performance for a budget laptop, good spec with 1Tb H/D and 4 Gb memory

The mouse pad buttons are hard to find on the pad as its all one square pad there are no seperate right and left buttons, this is my only comment
