Acer Aspire 5 (A517-52G) - disassembly and upgrade options

Acer Aspire 5 (A517-52G) review – an everyday device that offers balance
Source: Laptop Media English
A 17-inch laptop of this class is never about performance, or being on the cutting edge of technology in every aspect. Instead, the keyword here is “compromise”, and there are quite a few of them. The first one, of course, is the display. It’s clear that the Acer Aspire 5 (A517-52G)’s panel comes with a budget-conscious IPS panel. Yes, it has comfortable viewing angles, a good contrast ratio, and more importantly – its backlight doesn’t flicker. Unfortunately, it covers only half of the colors found on the Web, which results in a bit of a dull-looking image. Now, this wouldn’t have been an issue, if Lenovo’s Ideapad 3 (17″, 2021) didn’t exist. It had a screen, that was able to show vibrant and accurate colors. The Aspire 5 can’t do that. Nevertheless, we are happy to see that Acer stayed away from the TN panels of the past. Thankfully, the upgrade options look quite good with one SODIMM slot for memory expansion, an M.2 PCIe x4 slot for SSDs, and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay for storage. What is even better, is that Acer provides everything needed to attach a SATA drive inside the package, which is great.
