Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-52-531Q

80% Acer Aspire 5 review: Not exactly a looker, but this laptop packs a serious punch for the price
Source: T3 English
It's not the prettiest portable PC, the Acer Aspire 5, what with it's beefy screen bezels and dated chassis styling. But where it really counts, this laptop usually delivers. There's strong performance from the combination of Intel quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and M.2 SSD. The 14-inch IPS display is a cut above in most regards at this price point, too. Then there's the bona fide all-day battery life. For the money, that's one heck of an all-round combination. Even the chassis isn't so bad if durability rather than style are deemed the more critical metrics. For sure, we wish the Acer Aspire 5 were a little easier on the eye. But if you're looking for a laptop with a great feature set, strong performance, a good screen and proper all-day battery life, all four around £500, the Aspire 5 definitely delivers.

It may be short on style, but the Acer Aspire 5 makes up for it with strong all-round performance, a good IPS screen and outstanding battery life. You really couldn't ask for much more for the money.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

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.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
