Reviews for the Acer Aspire 1 A114-32-C1B2
Good, inexpensive laptops are in short supply at the moment because a lot of people suddenly found themselves working from home with many working alongside their kids. This laptop category includes the Acer Aspire 1, a simple 15.6-inch notebook for basic home office work and entertainment with good battery life that normally sells for only $230. Unfortunately, it's currently selling for more than that and, unless you're really in a bind, I would recommend checking out other laptop options under $500 first.
