Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-57G-74D3

80% Acer Aspire 5 review (2022 A515-57 model – Core i7, Nvidia MX550)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This generation of the Acer Aspire 5 refines on its predecessors with a slight update in design and practicality, and a more notable update in specs and internal cooling. Unfortunately, Acer haven't updated the display in the same manner, and only seem to offer basic-level IPS panels for this series, the kind that might not suffice in 2022. The audio quality isn't much here, either, but overall the series remains a serious contender in the budget class of full-size all-purpose laptops.

NVIDIA GeForce MX550: Entry level dedicated graphics card based on the TU117 with GDDR6 memory.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i7-1255U: Alder Lake based mobile CPU with 2 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. The performance cores offer hyper threading, leading to 12 threads that can be processed. The CPU clocks from 1.2 to 4.7 GHz. The TDP is specified at 15 Watt.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


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.
