Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K
We are impressed with this notebook. Acer has made good inexpensive laptops on their Acer Aspire 5 lineups. The aluminum top cover, IPS Full-HD panel, and a Windows precision trackpad at this price are awesome features. Moreover, you will also miss the backlit keyboard and the Fingerprint sensor on other laptops at this price tag. And the option to be able to upgrade is a great addition. Overall, this Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K is a capable thin laptop with many extra features.

If you’re looking for an affordable laptop for work and college, you’re getting a good deal with this Acer Aspire 5. The capable, middle-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 3 and integrated graphics can handle the work you need to get done. And while you’ll take a few days to get used to the touchpad, the comfortable, backlit full-size keyboard makes typing away college assignments and business spreadsheets a breeze. Parents looking for a laptop for their kid will be disappointed by the battery life, however, with today’s remote-learning, that isn’t a deal-breaker. That’s just something to consider along with the Aspire 5’s appealing price tag. As this Acer Aspire 5 review has shown, there are a few caveats to remember, but without performance-limiting issues, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K is a laptop you’d want to invest in.
