Acer did a good job with the cooling of this laptop. Indeed, it might be an overkill for the Core i3 model, like ours, but you have to keep in mind that Intel’s 12th Gen is really capable if you provide it with the right cooling. So, if you want a good laptop suitable for your everyday needs, and coming with an appetizing price tag, the Aspire 5 (A515-57) is a very viable choice. Keep in mind that even the Core i3-1215U has more than enough power for your needs.
