Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G-53PU

84.6% Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G (i5-8265U, MX150, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Acer's 15.6-inch allrounder is a lot more compact, slim and light than its competition. But there is no need to worry about having to trade these features with performance. The device also offers a matte IPS Full HD display, a GeForce MX150 GPU and a quad-core processor of the Whiskey Lake generation.
Acer Aspire 5 (A515-52G) review – a budget multimedia device for the masses
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Aspire 5 (A515-52G) is a device we really wanted to like. Keeping in mind that its predecessor is what we can still point out as one of the best budget multimedia notebooks. Moreover, the A515-52G could easily be successful, if it wasn’t for some major disappointments. First, and probably the most prominent one, is battery life – the Aspire 5 (A515-51G) lasts twice as much as the A515-52G.
