Actually, for that kind of price tag, this device is a decent offer. It’s compact so portability is okay. It’s a 14-inch laptop and it’ll fit in most backpacks with ease. The bezels around the display are narrow (except for the “chin”) and the laptop looks up-to-date, especially for its price category. However, for that kind of money, the Acer Aspire 3 (A314-22) is a solid offer. Just be careful how you configure it before buying – if you choose the 1080p panel with at least AMD Ryzen 3 3250U and 8GB of RAM (keep in mind that the dual-channel mode boosts the overall performance) you’ll get a decent budget device that can be your daily driver if you aren’t too pretentious.

AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1200 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R3 3250U: An entry-level, dual-core APU designed for use in affordable laptops. The Ryzen features two Zen cores clocked at 2.6 GHz to 3.5 GHz (SMT support is enabled for a total of 4 threads) and a Vega series graphics adapter. These specifications are similar to the older 3200U, with the higher peak operating temperature of the latter (105 °C versus 95 °C) being the only difference.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.
