Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-51RL

The Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-51RL is one of the best budget full-size laptops in stores today. It checks most of the right boxes which are well built, slim and fairly light, gets a decent keyboard, an IPS screen and modern hardware, performs well, runs cool and quiet and lasts for a long while on a charge. Both design and build wise this Aspire 5 is step-up from the Aspire E15 series. For starters, it’s thinner and lighter, weighing in about 4.6 lbs with an HDD and SSD included, while the older models weigh around 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 aluminum with beveled edge, which feels more premium when touched or looked at. Third, thanks to the drop in height this notebook is also a lot sturdier. There’s very little flex or give in the main body, the keyboard deck, and even the hood. The lid has a nice texture and comes in gray, which hides smudges well, there are absolutely no lights inside, as even the status LEDs are discrete and placed on the side, the bottom is made from solid hard plastic and the hinges work smoothly all the time. They might seem small, but actually, keep the screen well in place and allow users to actually lift it with a single hand, as well as flip it all the way flat to 180 degrees. This laptop also sits nicely on a desk, thanks to the large and grippy rubber feet on the belly. The Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-51RL features a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS panel. The FHD IPS panel isn’t the best IPS option could be found 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. Specs wise the Aspire 5 A515 is built on Intel Core U hardware, DDR4 RAM and dual-storage, and we got to test the top-tier configuration available at launch, with a Core i7-7500U processor, 20 GB of RAM, a 256 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD. The graphic processor is a Nvidia GeForce MX150 with 2 GB VRAM and supports HDMI output. 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 2.0 Type A ports and the audio jack on the left, while all the others are on the right. The right side includes a Kensington Lock, LAN, HDMI, USB 3.0 Type A and USB 3.1 Type C gen 1, as well as the card-reader. In other words, if user plan to use this with a mouse, they will have plenty of space to manoeuvre it on the right side. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Arduous all-rounder. Acer's brand-new multimedia all-rounder is equipped with an IPS panel, an SSD+HDD combo, and a GPU suitable for gaming. In addition, it surprised us with its very long battery life.

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 $600 Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-52R1 is a good-looking laptop that has several things going for it, including USB Type-C compatibility, loud audio and strong graphics performance. 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.

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.

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.
Positive: Solid workmanship; comfortable keyboard; nice display; good price / performance ratio; long battery life. Negative: Mediocre touchpad; no backlit keys; overheats while using.

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.

84.6% Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G (i5-8265U, MX150, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Acer's 15.6-inch allrounder is a lot more compact, slim and light than its competition. But there is no need to worry about having to trade these features with performance. The device also offers a matte IPS Full HD display, a GeForce MX150 GPU and a quad-core processor of the Whiskey Lake generation.
Acer Aspire 5 (A515-52G) review – a budget multimedia device for the masses
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Aspire 5 (A515-52G) is a device we really wanted to like. Keeping in mind that its predecessor is what we can still point out as one of the best budget multimedia notebooks. Moreover, the A515-52G could easily be successful, if it wasn’t for some major disappointments. First, and probably the most prominent one, is battery life – the Aspire 5 (A515-51G) lasts twice as much as the A515-52G.

60% Acer Aspire 5 Slim A515-52G Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Acer Aspire 5 Slim A515-52G is a confusing laptop. It does some things very well but has a lot of issues that go beyond quirks. The hardware is capable and the package is portable, but this laptop just isn't always comfortable to use. For people like us whose main work involves typing, the keyboard layout and quality, not to mention the airflow issue, are absolute dealbreakers.

Okay, guys, keep in mind that we are talking about a budget laptop over here. In fact, as we mentioned, in some regions it might just be the cheapest IPS-equipped laptop that features the GeForce MX250. This not only enables you to play some low-medium intensive games at decent frame rates but also without breaking your bank account.

77% Acer Aspire 5 (2019) review: An incredible thin-and-light laptop deal
Source: CNet English
There are two types of laptops I've come to expect from Acer: Standout premium models like the crazy Swift 7 ultraportable and Predator Triton 900, and mainstream laptops that are impossibly good deals -- like last year's Predator Helios 300 and this year's Acer Aspire 5. For more than a year, Acer's Aspire E 15 was my go-to pick for anyone who just needed a quick, reliable laptop for general use around the home. Sadly, that model is getting harder to find, but the Aspire 5 is an excellent alternative that's thinner, lighter and still an impossibly good deal.

Capable of smooth-as-butter performance for mainstream computing activities, this Core i5-powered version of the Acer Aspire 5 manages to pack quad-core power into a thin, budget-priced chassis. But while it can run Office like a charm, the Aspire’s quad-core performance isn’t quite as impressive, and we’re also disappointed by its dim display.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive quad-core laptop that’s less than three-quarters of an inch thick, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-54-51DJ might fit the bill. This slim laptop packs in more than enough power for everyday computing tasks, and its quad-core performance is respectable, if shy of awe-inspiring. A fingerprint reader and nearly all-day battery life will appeal to productivity-minded road warriors, although they’ll have to settle for a display that’s on the dim side.

80% Acer Aspire 5 (Core i3, 2019) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Aspire 5 is the laptop to get if you're on a budget. It features great performance for the price, a display that's brighter than most cheap laptops, and it'll survive longer than your average workday. The only real issues with it are its middling graphics and the fact that the lid may be a little off-center. If you want to save a little more money, go with the Acer Aspire E 15 ($361). It's bulkier, but it offers more ports and the same good performance but with stronger graphics and better build quality for a cheaper price. You will lose out on an SSD, however. Overall, the Aspire 5 is an excellent budget laptop.

The Core i3-powered version of the Acer Aspire 5 offers middling speed, and we wish it had more storage, but this still manages to find the sweet spot between size, power, and price. For $400, you get a slim and relatively light chassis, smooth performance for everyday applications, a roomy 1080p display, and plenty of battery life. That adds up to a pretty good value.

Acer Aspire 5 (A515-43-R19L) review: A budget AMD Ryzen 3 workhorse with middling battery life
Source: Good Gear Guide English
There’s a lot to like about this inexpensive Ryzen 3-powered Acer Aspire 5, including its slim and light chassis, and its solid performance when it comes to mainstream computing tasks. However, the middling battery life on this particular Aspire model is tough to overlook. If you have a $310 budget and you can’t spend a penny more, you could do a lot worse than this productivity-minded workhorse. However, we recommend spending an extra $40 for the (as of this writing) $350 Core i3 version of the Aspire 5, which comes saddled with the same 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD but boasts significantly better battery life.

There’s a lot to like about this inexpensive Ryzen 3-powered Acer Aspire 5, including its slim and light chassis and its solid performance when it comes to mainstream computing tasks, but the middling battery life on this particular Aspire model is tough to overlook.

78.3% Acer Aspire 5 A515-43-R057 Laptop Review: A super price for an AMD laptop, but with a hefty shortcoming | Notebookcheck
Acer's latest budget laptop sounds excellent on paper. The Aspire 5 A515-43-R057 retails for around €500 (~$554) and comes with a Zen+ APU, a 1 TB SSD and 8 GB of RAM. However, not all is at it seems with our test device, as our review below will reveal.

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.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.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.NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).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 MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture. Renamed GeForce 940MX.Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz. AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.» 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.8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

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. 8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.Intel Core i3:

6006U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm. The maximum clock speed is only 2 GHz and Turbo Boost is not supported.8145U: Whiskey Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The two cores are clocked between 2.1 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.AMD Bristol Ridge:

FX-9800P: Fastest Bristol Ridge ULV-APU from 2016. Integrates 4 CPU cores (2 modules – 4 integer, 2 FP units) with 2.7-3.6, dual-channel DDR4 memory controller as well as a Radeon GPU with 512 shader units.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.  

7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.AMD Ryzen 3:

3200U: Mobile Dual-Core APU using two Zen+ cores clocked at 2.6 to 3.5 GHz (with SMT, meaning 4 Threads) and a Vega graphics card with 3 CUs clocked at up to 1200 MHz.AMD Ryzen 5:

3500U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1200 MHz.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


76.18%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
