Reviews for the Acer Aspire 3 A315-54-56KY

80% Acer Aspire 3 (A315-54) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
If you're looking for a powerful laptop at under £500 then the Acer Aspire 3 fits the bill. The A315-54 has an impressive Core i5 processor which you don't normally see. This means it's got similar raw performance to laptops that cost double the price. Build quality is good too with a decent enough keyboard and a nice range of ports. However, it's not all plain sailing as the screen is just HD resolution and will need to be used at or close to maximum brightness. The battery life is also nothing special.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.

82%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
