Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-509A
Boon or bust. A GeForce MX130? Until now only two laptop manufacturers have built this pared-down version of the MX150 into their models. One of them is Acer who uses this rare combination of an i5-8250U and the MX130 in their 15-inch Aspire 5. Among other things we will find in our test how large the difference in the graphics performance really is and whether the Acer is mainly suited for work or also for gaming.

В заключение можем да кажем, че 15-инчовият Aspire 5 осигурява почти същото изживяване на потребителя като 17-инчовия модел с едно изключение – екрана. Очевидно Acer са направили някои жертви по отношение на качеството на екрана и вместо висококласен IPS панел са включили дисплей от среден клас с ограничено sRGB покритие и малко над средната максимална яркост. Въпреки това не можем да се оплачем, тъй като в този ценови клас панелът има много повече смисъл. Дисплеят на 17-инчовия модел беше бонус. Все пак липсата на ШИМ над 22% яркост и изключително високия контраст трябва да се вземат предвид.
Positive: Solid workmanship; comfortable keyboard; nice display; good price / performance ratio; long battery life. Negative: Mediocre touchpad; no backlit keys; overheats while using.
