Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-37JF
Source: Ultrabook Review
The Aspire 5 series proves to be a competitive option in its budget-oriented segment, but it must be judged for what it is, as an affordable laptop built on Tiger Lake hardware, snappy with daily use and capable of occasional gaming, as long as you're going with one of the Iris Xe configurations. The hardware is paired with a fair chassis, IO, typing experience, screen-quality, and battery life for its price segment, but the laptop is definitely not without its quirks, as you'll find out from the detailed review down below.
