Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-59BP

Acer Aspire 5 (A514-54) review – budget Tiger Lake laptops are coming
Source: Laptop Media English
To be honest, you get what you pay for. The laptop is inexpensive, and the predominantly plastic build is something you should expect. With this, comes the not so great structural integrity, which results in a flexy base and lid. However, we are happy with the way Acer introduced the lifted base. However, despite the higher airflow, we weren’t completely happy with the performance of the Core i5-1135G7. Neither the CPU nor its integrated graphics delivered the performance we expected, and we get about 50% of what the Iris Xe Graphics G7 (96 EU) delivers on the Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF415-55GT). Interestingly, the memory was working in dual-channel mode with there being 4GB integrated on the motherboard and 4GB in the SODIMM slot. And this brings us to the upgradeability. We can consider it to be on point, given the fact that most notebooks these days completely removed the RAM upgrades from the equation. Also, you get one M.2 slot for NVMe drives and a SATA drive bay that comes with its own connector, so kudos to.

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.
