Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-43-R19L

60% Why this Acer Aspire 5 is usually the bestselling laptop on Amazon
Source: PC World English
Most of all, however, this Aspire 5 model (A515-43-R19L) is way cheap. With a list price of $350, this Ryzen 3-powered laptop usually sells for closer to $310 on Amazon—not bad for a full-on Windows 10 laptop with a roomy display and a sleek design.

Acer Aspire 5 (A515-43-R19L) review: A budget AMD Ryzen 3 workhorse with middling battery life
Source: Good Gear Guide English
There’s a lot to like about this inexpensive Ryzen 3-powered Acer Aspire 5, including its slim and light chassis, and its solid performance when it comes to mainstream computing tasks. However, the middling battery life on this particular Aspire model is tough to overlook. If you have a $310 budget and you can’t spend a penny more, you could do a lot worse than this productivity-minded workhorse. However, we recommend spending an extra $40 for the (as of this writing) $350 Core i3 version of the Aspire 5, which comes saddled with the same 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD but boasts significantly better battery life.

AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
