The one major advantage of this laptop is its price. Besides that, there is the cooling, which is able to perfectly tame the Core i7-1255U. Indeed, this is not the most pretentious CPU when it comes to heat output, but it is pretty powerful itself. After all, the Aspire 3 manages to sustain it at 28W in long extreme workload scenarios. In addition to that, we are happy with the upgradeability. There are two SODIMM slots, which fit the easily accessible DDR4 memory. Not only that, but two M.2 PCIe x4 slots are taking care of your storage – one of them even supports Gen 4 SSDs.
