Acer's Aspire 5 A515-54G delivers solid gaming performance and a brand-new Comet Lake processor on your desktop for a cheap price. However, we have some complaints in terms of the performance and the display.

Acer's 15.6-inch laptop is an inexpensive device with decent gaming performance thanks to its GeForce MX250. Additionally, the recent standard Wi-Fi 6 is on board. The storage can be expanded with a 2.5-inch SATA SSD/HDD. On top of that, the battery life is good at more than 8 hours, the weight is low and the display non-glossy. What more can you ask for?

For one, more performance, since the cooling solution is incapable of allowing the Core i5-10210U to unleash its full potential. Here, the competition from Lenovo, which delivers the same gaming performance, pulls ahead.

More information can be found in our review of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-56XE.
