Acer Aspire 5 (A515-48M) review – good performer with Zen 3 CPUs and long battery life
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Aspire 5 (A515-48M) is a pleasant surprise in the budget category. The laptop comes with a modern non-intrusive design with rounded edges. The build quality is above average – during harsh typing the base remains stable. We observed some bends on the lid here and there but nothing too serious. Speaking of the lid, it houses an IPS 1080p display (at least in our case) and a 1080p Web camera. The panel has comfortable viewing angles and it’s also PWM-free which makes the laptop suitable for a daily driver. The keyboard is comfortable for typing with its decent key travel and clicky feedback. The board has a NumPad and a backlight which is very useful for working in a dimmed environment. The touchpad has a smooth surface and it’s fast and accurate, plus it makes room for an optional fingerprint reader.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
