Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-53-517B

60% Acer Aspire 5 review: A large laptop with a big Achilles heel
Source: Android Central English
I'm hoping that discounts return for this laptop because if you can overlook the display — or have a monitor you can use with it most of the time — the Aspire 5 is a dependable super-sized laptop. However, given that the prices are now exceeding those of the new model and most competitors, this model of the Aspire 5 is ready to be put out to pasture. It'll get Windows 11 — and might receive a slight performance boost when it arrives — but unless it drops below $550 again, you can do better than this, even with the Aspire 5 series. Some of the more recent AMD models have touchscreens, but they're sub-FHD, so be prepared to see every pixel. I'm hoping to review the next generation shortly, but for now, either wait for a sale or skip this one entirely.

70% Acer Aspire 5 Review: A $549 Laptop That Doesn’T Completely Suck
Source: The Verge English
But if you can get all those benefits plus a six-core AMD processor for the same (or a comparable) price, I see no reason not to go that route instead if you’re wed to the 15-inch system. AMD systems are hard to find, but I recommend digging around or waiting until one becomes available. And if you’re willing to spend a bit more for the Ryzen-powered Swift 3, you’ll see a noticeable difference in build quality and portability as well as multiple extra hours of battery life. For students and on-the-go workers, I think that’s more than worth the cost.

60% Acer Aspire 5 (2020) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Aspire 5 isn’t a game-changer. Its design is so subdued that it's barely noticeable and its Core i5 processor and integrated graphics won’t blow you away with their performance. But for a seriously affordable $549, the Aspire 5 serves up a solid audio system and has enough power to get the job done, whether the task is writing up a report, video chatting with family or watching a movie.

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.
