Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A514-56M

Acer Aspire 5 (A514-56M) review – compact and light laptop with PWM-free display
Source: Laptop Media English
The upgradability is one of the few disadvantages of the device. The memory is soldered but you can configure the laptop with up to 32GB of LPDDR5-6400MHz memory which should be enough for most people. For storage, there is only one M.2 slot that is compatible with Gen 4 SSDs. At the end of the day, the Acer Aspire 5 (A514-56M) is a machine that doesn’t cost much but it can be picked with efficient and potent CPUs, a PWM-free display, and a comfortable keyboard and touchpad.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
