Are we being overly fussy, insisting that you should insist on a full HD and IPS display in this price range? Maybe, but we know that such a screen will make you a lot happier than having 12GB versus 8GB of RAM or a hard drive in addition to an SSD. For those willing to sacrifice some power and storage for a better display, the Asus F556UA-AB32 and the Editors' Choice Acer Aspire E 15 are both solid desktop-replacement alternatives, with their 1080p screens and under-$500 price tags.

The machine's Core i5 processor is reliable for everyday use, providing decent performance for work and play. However, the Aspire 5's battery life is much shorter than that of its competitors.

Fit primarily for work! The new Aspire 5 is based on Intel's 8th-gen Core series. On top of that, the 17-incher offers a dedicated graphics card. Unfortunately, it will only manage to impress casual gamers. In this review, you will learn how well the new CPU generation stacks up against the old guard.

The best in class multimedia 17.3-inch laptop. Period. It may have some unpolished edges here and there – we refer to the slightly flexible interior, lid and the wobbly touchpad – but it delivers exceptional multimedia experience and pretty powerful hardware for the asking price.

70% Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Acer offers a solid foundation for a mid-range multimedia laptop in the Aspire 5. The capable CPU and GPU, comfortable keyboard, and user-upgradable RAM and storage all make it good value. However, you'll need to be careful when shopping as there are many variants of the Aspire 5, all priced in the range of Rs. 45,000 to Rs. 52,000, with very slight variations in their configurations. For instance, the A515-515G-571Z model that we tested isn’t available with 8GB of RAM so if you that pre-installed then you’ll have to forego either the full-HD display or Windows. Some models are available online but the rest should be available across major retail chains like Croma, Reliance Digital, etc, according to Acer.

81.5% Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-509A (8250U, MX130, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Boon or bust. A GeForce MX130? Until now only two laptop manufacturers have built this pared-down version of the MX150 into their models. One of them is Acer who uses this rare combination of an i5-8250U and the MX130 in their 15-inch Aspire 5. Among other things we will find in our test how large the difference in the graphics performance really is and whether the Acer is mainly suited for work or also for gaming.
Ревю на Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51G) – един от най-добрите бюджетни лаптопи с мултимедийна насоченост
Source: Laptop Mag English
В заключение можем да кажем, че 15-инчовият Aspire 5 осигурява почти същото изживяване на потребителя като 17-инчовия модел с едно изключение – екрана. Очевидно Acer са направили някои жертви по отношение на качеството на екрана и вместо висококласен IPS панел са включили дисплей от среден клас с ограничено sRGB покритие и малко над средната максимална яркост. Въпреки това не можем да се оплачем, тъй като в този ценови клас панелът има много повече смисъл. Дисплеят на 17-инчовия модел беше бонус. Все пак липсата на ШИМ над 22% яркост и изключително високия контраст трябва да се вземат предвид.

Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51G) review – one of the best budget media-centric laptops out there
Source: Laptop Media English
The 15-inch Aspire 5 delivers pretty much the same user experience as the 17-inch model with one big exception – the screen. Apparently, Acer has cut some corners regarding screen quality and instead of a high-end IPS panel, they’ve put a mid-range display with limited sRGB coverage and slightly above average maximum brightness. However, we can’t really complain because at this price range, this panel makes more sense. The display on the 17-inch model was a bonus. Still, the absence of PWM above 22% brightness and the exceptionally high contrast should be considered.

Acer Aspire 5 A515-51-58HD

Acer laptops have been historically known for their affordable price tags and overall solid value for the money, albeit with a few cut corners here and there, perfectly normal for budget devices. The Acer Aspire 5 A515-51-58HD is a budget laptop that manages to squeeze quad-core power into a reasonably slim-and-light design. It is one of the best budget full-size laptops users can find in stores. It checks most of the right boxes: well built, slim and fairly light, decent keyboard, IPS screen and modern hardware, performs well, runs cool and quiet and lasts for a long while on a charge. For starters, it’s thinner and lighter, weighing in about 2.09 kg (4.6 lbs) with an HDD and SSD included, while the older models weigh around 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs). Second, while the construction is still mostly plastic, the interior (palm-rest and area around the keyboard) is made from a sheet of aluminium with beveled edge, which feels more premium when touched or looked at. Speaking of the hinge, it’s capable of swiveling a little more than 180 degrees, meaning a user can lay it completely flat with the lid open, although it won’t swivel all the way around like a true convertible laptop. As for the screen, the FHD IPS panel on the Acer Aspire 5 A515-51-58HD isn’t the best IPS option user could find on a 15-inch laptop for sure, but it’s good enough for a budget laptop, with up to 250 nits of brightness, great contrast and good viewing angles, but rather lacking in terms of color coverage. For the hardware specifications, it comes with a quad-core, eighth-generation Core i5-8250U processor, a 1 TB hard drive, integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics (meaning don’t expect much in the way of gaming), and a somewhat meager 4 GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradable to up to 20GB). With these specs, users have a reasonably powerful laptop for handling everyday computing chores. As far as IO goes, all the ports are lined on the right and left edges. Even the arrangement is pretty good, with the PSU, two USB Type A 2.0 slots and the audio jack on the left, while all the others are on the right: Kensington Lock, LAN, HDMI, USB 3.0 Type A and USB 3.1 Type C gen 1, as well as the card reader. As a conclusion, users who are on a budget and don’t mind the bulkiness of the laptop can definitely consider this model. While it’s thicker and heavier than competitors and suffers from an iffy display, the Optane memory-equipped Acer Aspire 5 delivers an impressive quad-core performance for less than its ultraportable competitors.

Intel's Optane Memory perks up the 1TB hard drive of Acer's $500 Aspire 5 laptop, but a dim screen and tepid performance will keep it off budget buyers' short lists.

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.NVIDIA GeForce MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture. Renamed GeForce 940MX.AMD Radeon RX 540: Polaris based mid-range graphics card with 512 shaders (8 compute units) and a maximum clock speed of 1,219 MHz (according to AMD). Uses the new Polaris 12 chip like the faster Radeon RX 550 (not verified but highly likely) with the slightly improved 14nm FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
