Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-59E4

Acer Aspire 5 review: Intel's Ice Lake CPUs come to the budget Aspire line
Source: Good Gear Guide English Archive.org version
We’ve been consistently impressed by Acer’s budget-minded Aspire 5 line, and this new configuration with an Intel Ice Lake CPU doesn't disappoint. While it’s a tad heavy (same as other Aspire 5 laptops we've tried) and its battery life isn’t the greatest, this new Aspire 5 can crank through everyday computing tasks without skipping a beat, and it holds its own when it comes to video processing, database crunching, and other heavy CPU loads. Yes, you’ll need to keep the AC adapter handy, but given the $550 price tag, we’re not complaining too much.

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.
