Acer Aspire 5 A515-57G laptop review: weak showing for RTX 2050

Untapped potential. On paper, the Aspire 5 A515-57G is a very interesting laptop. For instance, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 is a rather uncommon graphics card. However, Acer messed up an otherwise good idea through unnecessary blunders and conscious cost-cutting measures.

The review model (A515-57G-53N8) can be had for around 1,000 Euro (US$1,030). For this price, you are getting a current-gen Intel Alder Lake processor (the power-efficient Core i5-1240P), 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (2x 8 GB dual-channel), a 512 GB NVMe M.2 SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 for demanding graphics applications. The GPU comes with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM but only offers a 64-bit memory bus. Acer has equipped the laptop with a matt Full HD IPS panel and chosen to install Windows 11 Home as the operating system.

Chassis

The chassis left us with mixed feelings. At first glance, the Aspire 5 appears to be of high quality. The stylish (yet rather simple) design looks great in combination with the medium-grey surfaces. If you take a closer look, however, you will notice that only the lid is made of metal. The base section is made of plastic and exhibits significant flex when you push down harder on it (particularly in the middle above the keyboard). In general, the Aspire 5 doesn't have the sturdiest chassis amongst laptops in this category.

Meanwhile, there is hardly anything to criticise about the device's fit and finish. On our review unit, the seams between all the elements are clean and neat. The hinges behave as expected and do their job properly. The mechanism is designed to lift the rear of the base section by several millimetres when the laptop is opened in order to promote air flow.

Although we wish the screen bezel would be slightly thinner, the Aspire 5 doesn't take up too much space. Its dimensions of 36.3 x 23.8 cm (14.3 x 9.4") are typical for a 15-inch laptop and puts the device somewhere in the middle of our comparison group. The story is similar with its weight (1.8kg, or 3.97 lb). The Acer laptop is 1.8 cm (0.7") thick when closed, which is likewise average for such a laptop.

Features

Interfaces

You will be quite satisfied with the selection of ports if you don't mind the absence of a card reader. The Aspire 5 offers not only three USB-A 3.0 ports but also one USB-C port that supports Thunderbolt 4. There is also an up-to-date HDMI 2.1 output, an RJ45 Ethernet port, an audio jack and a Kensington lock slot. Unfortunately, the barrel plug on the power supply is very delicate, bordering on fragile. This could potentially limit the device's durability.

We like how the ports are arranged on the laptop. Most of them are located towards the rear of the sides, meaning your movement isn't going to be too restricted when using a mouse (and with many cables plugged in).

Connectivity

There is still room for improvement in terms of Wi-Fi performance. The MediaTek MT7921 chip only delivered mediocre performance in our signal strength test, which involved placing the laptop one metre away from our new reference router, the Asus AXE11000. With transmit and receive rates of around 1,000 Mbit/s, the Aspire 5 isn't able to keep pace with competing laptops equipped with Intel modules.

Webcam

The webcam is pretty standard. As is often the case, it is lacking in both colour accuracy and image sharpness.

Accessories

Other than a few information booklets, Acer only included a charger with the Aspire 5. The 90-watt adapter is nice and compact at about 12 x 5 x 3 cm (4.7 x 2.0 x 1.2") and weighs just around 0.3 kg (0.7 lb).

Maintenance

The process of opening up the product for maintenance is similar to that for other multimedia laptops. To access the internals of the device, you have to first remove ten Phillips screws and then lift the bottom cover off the laptop using a flat tool. Under the hood, you will find a surprisingly small motherboard with a pair of heat pipes running to two fans. There are also two RAM slots and two M.2 slots (see photo). Opening up the Aspire 5 will also allow you to access the Wi-Fi module and battery.

Warranty

Acer provides a 24-month warranty on the laptop.

Input devices

Keyboard

The input devices are average at best. The biggest drawback of the keyboard is the tiny font on the keys. It can be difficult to distinguish the font from the grey background (poor readability) depending on the viewing angle, time of day and ambient light. Acer should have used black keys with a bolder font instead. Likewise, the keyboard feels less than optimal to type on. Besides the issues with sturdiness previously mentioned, we are not all that impressed with the keys' fairly mushy feedback. Therefore, anyone who types a lot should probably take a look at other alternatives.

On the other hand, there isn't much to complain about the layout. The main section mostly follows the standard keyboard layout. The only things we didn't like were the small up and down arrow keys and the numeric keypad with three instead of four columns. It is also a shame that the backlight only has one brightness level.

Touchpad

The touchpad isn't going to win any awards either. Like the keyboard, it too feels quite mushy – the left- and right-click zones at the bottom offer too little feedback. Furthermore, the touchpad has a tendency to rattle, which detracts from the quality feel of the device. There is nothing spectacular about the touchpad's gesture support and texture; they are neither bad nor exceptional. At 12.5 x 8 cm (4.9 x 3.1"), the touchpad is also more than adequate for a 15-inch laptop. 

Display

Those who are very particular about image quality won't be pleased with the Aspire 5 A515-57G. The Full HD screen (CMN N156HCA-EAB) on the device is average at best.

Once the laptop is switched on, you'll notice right away that the screen is lacking in brightness. Its average peak brightness of 234 cd/m² is too low for outdoor use and is only suitable for indoor spaces that are not too bright.

The colour coverage also significantly falls short of what IPS technology is capable of. The display only managed to cover 65% of the sRGB colour space - only the Asus ROG Strix G15 performed worse than that. To put things in perspective, good displays are able to hit 100% sRGB coverage.

You also shouldn't expect fast screen response times from the 15-inch device. The 60-Hz screen is not a great choice for gamers. The display is only saved from an even worse review by its great contrast (1,316:1) and low black level (0.19 cd/m²)

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.8 ms rise
↘ 10.7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 47 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
35.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.2 ms rise
↘ 18.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (36.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19846 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The Aspire 5 A515-57G-53N8 is a mid-range laptop in term of both price and performance. The Core i5-1240P and GeForce RTX 2050 form a balanced all-round combination that has enough power for everyday tasks, such office work, video playback and Internet browsing. The same applies to the 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage. However, the Aspire 5 shouldn't be viewed as a gaming laptop.

Test conditions

Unfortunately, Acer has preinstalled various tools and programmes from other companies in order to earn a few more dollars. The inclusion of bloatware has thankfully become less common in the past years – at least with other laptop manufacturers. This thus makes Acer stand out in a negative way. As we didn't find any performance profiles on the system (e.g. in the Acer Care Center), all the measurements were performed with the laptop in its factory settings.

Processor

The Core i5-1240P is a brand-new chip from Intel's Alder Lake lineup. The 10-nm chip with a specified TDP of 28 watts has 4 performance cores (with Hyper-Threading) and 8 efficiency cores (no Hyper-Threading), allowing it to run up to 16 threads in parallel.

The 1240P performed well in our series of CPU tests. Whilst the processor expectedly isn't as fast as current Intel GPUs with higher TDP (e.g. the Core i5-12500H and Core i7-12650H), it still performs better than older processors such as the Core i7-10750H. Our Cinebench loop test showed that the Aspire 5 is able to deliver adequate sustained performance. After a small dip initially, the results stabilised down at a fairly constant level.

Mass storage

The Aspire 5 also put up a poor show when it comes to SSD performance. The included M.2 drive from Micron (model 2450) came in last in almost all the SSD benchmarks. Having said that, the performance gaps were often quite small. Only the SSD in the Honor MagicBook 14 was considerably faster than the competition.
