Comment

Model: Acer has developed yet another simple yet practical offering with the Aspire E1-531. Featuring a 15.6 inch LED display and excellent hardware, it is meant to be an affordable alternative for everyday use. On the outside, it is made of understated polished grey tones accentuated with black and silver highlights, giving it a serious yet simple look. The edges are rounded and soft and it has a thickness of 18 mm. It weighs about 2.5 kg, which makes it relatively easy to transport. The HD 15.6” screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and sufficient brightness and contrast. However, the screen is rather reflective and is therefore a challenge to view in bright light.

Hardware wise, this machine comes packed with a 2.4 GHz Intel Pentium 2020M processor and 4 GB DDR3-RAM clocked at up to 1.6 GHz. There are a 500 GB SATA HDD and an Intel HD graphics card with shared memory. The entire system runs on a Linux Linpus OS. The battery has a rather moderate life span of 4.5 hours without being plugged in which can be troublesome for those that like to work outdoors. However, this is a very small price to pay as the entire package is designed to be budget friendly.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

2020M: Dual-core processor based on the Ivy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.


73%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
