Reviews for the Acer Aspire E1-472G-6844

50% A budget laptop with some maddening flaws
Source: Techradar English
If you were considering the E1 for a budget buy, ask yourself: are these compromises that you can live with? Maybe you'll get used to the touchpad's quirks after a few weeks, and you don't care what Frankie Muniz's ugly face looks like on Netflix, as long as you can get online, write that report, and play some Hotline Miami. Then the Acer Aspire E1 might be for you. But with better-priced rivals out there, the competition is steep. Frankly, you might be better off finding a budget laptop on which it's easier to scroll up and down.

The Acer Aspire E1-472G is a laptop I'm sure I've seen before somewhere. The déjà vu occurred the moment I first snapped open its plastic lid. Acer's variation on the budget E1-472G Aspire laptop has good guts but an underwhelming exterior and design, and also lacks a touch screen. Nvidia graphics add a boost.

The Acer Aspire E1 may have some of the latest hardware from Intel and Nvidia, but it remains a laptop that’s rooted in the past. A lackluster display, poor battery life and a thick, bulky chassis make the E1 feel as if it was designed a few years ago. In today’s era of sleek Ultrabooks, it feels positively archaic.

At this price, the lack of a touch screen seems like an omission, and it combines with the spotty gesture support of the touchpad to make this a poor laptop for Windows 8.1, especially for anyone new to the operating system. The Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 14R-5437$649.99 at Dell offers better performance, longer battery life, and a fuller feature set, for a similar price, remaining our top pick in the category. That said, if you are comfortable with the small sacrifices necessary for a budget-friendly system, the Aspire E1-472G-6844 does offer great graphics prowess in the same general price range, so it may be worth considering.

14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.1 kg:

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


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.


57.25%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
