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.
