Okay, that brings me to the end of this review. I believe it’s an easy recommendation for students or freshers who are looking for a reliable daily driver on a budget. First and foremost, the Intel Core i5-1235U CPU brings significant performance gains over its predecessor. And things like Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6E are hard to find on a 600-dollar laptop too. You can even upgrade the memory down the line in case your workflow ever gets more intense. But that’s not to say it is without flaws—especially in terms of the build quality and display. You can definitely find last-gen laptops with better specs in this regard, but that means they miss out on that sweet-sweet 12th Gen power.

I think that Acer has put a lot of great stuff into the Aspire 5. If you want a big screen with plenty of RAM and SSD space for not a lot of money, this could be a great pick. DIY upgrades can also keep your Aspire chugging down the road, which I wish more laptop makers would consider when designing mass-market models like this. There are some clear downsides, however. The weak battery life and mediocre display and keyboard marred the experience. But when writing this summary, I can’t help but feel that the Aspire 5 is less than the sum of its parts. You miss out on so much of the modern PC experience—from Windows Hello biometric log-in to a touchscreen to all-day battery life. These are minor additions that can truly change the way you use your computer. At the $600 price, it’s stuck between some cheaper big-screen options (Dell’s Inspiron 3000 15 starts at $449) that, for an average user, might offer an indistinguishable day-to-day experience. Then if you can stretch your budget, you’re nearly in premium laptop territory (HP Envys and refurbished MacBook Air M1s can both cost as little as $849).

The 2022 Acer Aspire 5 fixes two of the previous generation’s most glaring weaknesses. It equips a much better display, and its performance is significantly better. It’s also more expensive, without the same low-cost option. While its battery life is below average and its build quality isn’t the best, it’s a much better value even at its $700 retail price. Get it on sale for $600, and I can recommend it as a well-performing laptop with a display that meets a productivity user’s needs.
