The Acer Aspire 1 is an extremely affordable laptop with a stylish design and a 1080p display, but its battery life is short-lived.

68% Acer Aspire 1 review: Laptop basics on a larger screen
Source: CNet English Archive.org version
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.

Acer's 14-incher offers a matte Full HD display, a Pentium Silver N5000 processor and silent operation. Battery life is average at best. A device like the Aspire should offer more in this regard.
Acer Aspire 1 (A114-32) review – an ultra-budget laptop for media consumption

So, if you are really in need of a laptop and you don’t have spare money to spend… and you are really okay with all of the compromises you have to make, sure go for it. However, consider the HP 250 G7 as a decent option and please, make sure you get our profiles, as they will make your viewing experience considerably better in the long run.

70% Acer Aspire 1 (A114-33) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Acer Aspire 1 A114-33 is a decent-value laptop that offers few surprises or stand-out features. But then, that’s not really what most people are after for their £300. Featuring a fine typing experience, a solid Full HD IPS display, and strong all-day stamina, this is the ideal laptop for those who need a long-lasting laptop for lighter tasks without breaking the bank. It’s not the slinkiest laptop on the market, even within its modest price bracket. And that Peachy Pink shade certainly won’t be for everyone and appears to be the only colour available for the top-spec SKU. But if you spend most of your working day in Word, Excel, Chrome, Gdocs and Mail, and often find yourself away from a power point while you’re completing such undemanding tasks, then the Aspire 1 A114-33 won’t let you down.

Comment

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.

Intel UHD Graphics 605: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 505, the 605 offers improved display outputs.

Intel UHD Graphics (Jasper Lake 24 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Jasper Lake Celeron mid range models based on the Gen. 11 architecture. Offers 24 of the 32 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 350 MHz base to 900 MHz boost. The Jasper Lake chips are produced in the 10nm process at Intel produced (similar to Ice Lake).

Intel HD Graphics 610: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Same performance as the old HD Graphics 510.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Celeron:

Celeron N3350: An Apollo Lake family, dual-core, ultra-low-power processor (SoC) that saw the light of day in 2016. Its two cores run at 1.1 GHz to 2.4 GHz; these are not Hyper-Threading-enabled meaning there are no additional threads. This chip has a fairly competent integrated graphics solution, the Intel HD Graphics 500, and eats very little (~6 W). The Celeron N3350 is based on the Goldmont CPU microarchitecture that came to replace Silvermont (2013), bringing with it several welcome improvements. The CPU is Secure Boot-compatible; technically, it will have no issue running 64-bit Windows 11. The average N3350 in our database is just as fast as the venerable Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 is in multi-thread loads; the two cores of this Celeron trail behind a single core of any half-decent CPU such as the Intel Core i3-7130U.

Intel Gemini Lake:

Celeron N4000: Low power dual-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for designed for afforable laptops. Runs at 1.1 GHz to 2.6 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter.

Pentium N5000: Low power quad-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.7 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter.

Intel Jasper Lake:

Celeron N5100: Low power quad-core SoC from the Jasper Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1 - 2.8 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter with 24 EUs and up 800 MHz. The CPU cores are smaller and slower than in the Core CPUs (e.g. Ice Lake) but manufactured in the same 10nm process.

Intel Kaby Lake:

Pentium 4415U: Kaby-Lake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Compared to the Core i3-7100H, the 4415U is clocked slower (2.3 versus 3 GHz), offers less Level 3 cache and a slower GPU. Both a manufactured in the same 14nm process.

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.

No weight comment found (one expected)!


74.36%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
