Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-50AC

Acer offers a solid foundation for a mid-range multimedia laptop in the Aspire 5. The capable CPU and GPU, comfortable keyboard, and user-upgradable RAM and storage all make it good value. However, you'll need to be careful when shopping as there are many variants of the Aspire 5, all priced in the range of Rs. 45,000 to Rs. 52,000, with very slight variations in their configurations. For instance, the A515-515G-571Z model that we tested isn’t available with 8GB of RAM so if you that pre-installed then you’ll have to forego either the full-HD display or Windows. Some models are available online but the rest should be available across major retail chains like Croma, Reliance Digital, etc, according to Acer.
