Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-57G-57CW
Source: It Pro
The Aspire 5 has several features that you shouldn't automatically expect for the price including Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, the option to add a second SSD and upgrade the RAM and a discrete Nvidia GPU. The expansive keyboard will be a boon to office workers while the range of ports is very wide by modern standards: I'm struggling to remember the last time I found an RJ45 port on a non-gaming laptop. In the negative column, you have to put up with a very basic display, a slightly bouncy keyboard and pretty average battery life. Still, at £750 exc VAT it is difficult not to see the Aspire 5 as solid value for money.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
