Reviews for the Acer Aspire 3 A315-54-56KY
Source: PC Advisor
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.
