Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-552U

One Of Our Favorite Budget-Friendly Acer Laptops Is Now Faster, Lighter, And Cheaper
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Acer Aspire 5 offers a well-rounded set of features, portability, and performance for a retail price of $400. Its midrange processor, multitude of ports, and comfortable keyboard and trackpad make it a practical choice among budget laptops if you need something that can handle a high school or college-level workload. For accomplishing office tasks quickly and easily, the Aspire 5 is a great choice but it’s not the only choice for $500 or less. The Dell Inspiron has slightly more storage and memory, and its tough body will be beneficial to those who handle their electronic devices rougher than others. Meanwhile, the HP Pavilion offers similar performance with a more stylish body and a great keyboard and trackpad to boot. If you are looking for a powerful PC on a budget, you will have to spend a little more. The HP Pavilion Gaming and the Acer Nitro 5 are both under $700, but they offer enough performance to play e-sports games at high frame rates or work in 3D modeling programs.

80% Acer Aspire 5 review: An affordable laptop that’s enjoyable to use
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Acer Aspire 5 avoids typical budget laptop pitfalls. Windows laptops sold at this price or below often make extreme cuts. They may have a dual-core processor, just 4GB of RAM, or a tiny 128GB hard drive. This laptop does none of this. It delivers the bare minimum for an enjoyable Windows 11 experience and does so at a price just tens of dollars more expensive than less capable alternatives (including other Aspire models). That makes it hard to beat for AU$1,212.
