Acer Aspire 5 Review: Casual gaming notebook with an upgrade kit
Acer's 15.6-inch notebook brings an acceptable gaming performance with the Geforce MX250 to your desk at an affordable price. It has the current WiFi 6 on board, and you can also add more storage via 2.5-inch SATA SSD/HDD. In addition, there is a good battery life of more than 8 hours, a low weight, and a matte display. What more could you want?
... More performance, for example, since the cooling system does not make full use of the Core i5-10210U. The competitor from Lenovo with an identical gaming power is better equipped here.

Computers always had an important place in my life, starting with an Intel 80286 microprocessor in the early 1990s. I became interested in the productive side of technology, especially in campus radio, while studying at TU Chemnitz and during a trainee program in Belfast. Hardware interests led me to manage Notebookjournal.de, which is now a division of Notebooksbilliger, for a few years. I became self-employed in 2010 and took the next logical step in my career by starting to write for Notebookcheck.
Having worked as a programmer for 20 years (medical devices, AI, data management systems), I've been following the computer scene for many years and especially enjoy finding out about new technology advances. Originally from Germany but living in the US, I've been working as a translator more recently, with Notebookcheck allowing me to combine my interest in new devices and translation. Other interests include Buddhism, spending time in Tibetan monasteries, and translating ancient Tibetan texts.
