97% Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE [ONLY ] Gets The Jobs Done?
Source: PCR English
This laptop is a better version of the last model of the Acer Aspire 5 family that already was a great value. The SSD helps this notebook to perform fast, it boots and turns on quickly. The Wi-Fi 6, backlit keyboard, and Fingerprint sensor are great additions. In short, if you are looking for a new 10th Gen Intel laptop for your basic computing needs, I’d choose this 15.6″ A515-55-35SE. The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE is a good laptop for everyone, especially for PC beginners. Thin, lightweight, and aluminum covers are not-cheap looks. The 10th Generation of Intel CPU, SSD, and 4GB RAM allow this laptop to deliver decent performance for daily computing tasks. For this price, you can't go wrong with it.

83% Review: Acer Aspire 5 (A515-45-R3Yx)
Source: L&B TechReview English
In this edition, the Acer Aspire 5 is a computer that provides plenty of computing power for very little money. With 16 gigabytes of RAM, you can run so many concurrent programs that few will experience bottlenecks. Regardless of the Radeon name, the graphics are slow and games should be avoided. The screen is the place where you most clearly feel the low price. But as a workhorse for the (home) office or for study use, it is an excellent purchase. And should you go further down in price, the alternative is likely to be a Chromebook.

We are impressed with this notebook. Acer has made good inexpensive laptops on their Acer Aspire 5 lineups. The aluminum top cover, IPS Full-HD panel, and a Windows precision trackpad at this price are awesome features. Moreover, you will also miss the backlit keyboard and the Fingerprint sensor on other laptops at this price tag. And the option to be able to upgrade is a great addition. Overall, this Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K is a capable thin laptop with many extra features.

If you’re looking for an affordable laptop for work and college, you’re getting a good deal with this Acer Aspire 5. The capable, middle-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 3 and integrated graphics can handle the work you need to get done. And while you’ll take a few days to get used to the touchpad, the comfortable, backlit full-size keyboard makes typing away college assignments and business spreadsheets a breeze. Parents looking for a laptop for their kid will be disappointed by the battery life, however, with today’s remote-learning, that isn’t a deal-breaker. That’s just something to consider along with the Aspire 5’s appealing price tag. As this Acer Aspire 5 review has shown, there are a few caveats to remember, but without performance-limiting issues, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K is a laptop you’d want to invest in.

For about 600 Euros (~$687), the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 offers a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5700U processor. However, the rest of the configuration, including an AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 and 8 GB of RAM, thwart the plans of the elegant, quiet, and cool laptop in terms of many benchmarks, as our test shows.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
