At the end of the day, the Acer Aspire E5-471-59RT is a satisfactory desktop replacement for the general user who simply needs a Windows PC to use traditional programs like office apps, and browse the Internet, including full compatibility with plug-ins. It's a good choice if you only have $500 to $550 to spend on a laptop. That said, the Lenovo Flex 2 (15-inch) holds on to its Editors' Choice for budget desktop-replacement laptops, due to its innovative folding hinge, keyboard, and 1080p touch screen, though you will pay about $175 more for those features.

The $500 Acer Aspire E5-471-59RT does a lot of things right. It has strong processing power for the money, great battery life and a solid keyboard wrapped in a sleek raspberry coating. While I wish the display were better and that Acer had included an extra 4GB of RAM, the Aspire E5-471-59RT is a solid budget machine than can compete with more expensive 14-inch systems from ASUS and Dell.

Acer Aspire E5-471G-53XG

The Aspire E5-471G-53XG is a laptop clearly made for the average mid-range user. It measures about 1.25 by 13.75 inch (3.18 x 35 cm) and weighs about 4.4 pounds (2 kg), which is certainly light enough to carry around the house but might be slightly bulky for the ultimate "go-user". The 14-inch screen has a resolution of 1366x768 pixels, which is common for budget systems. Apart from that, its mediocre display lacks any touchscreen functionality, a function rather important for maximizing the Windows 8 experience.

Around the corners, you'll find a mix of old and modern I/O ports including a USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card reader, an Ethernet port, and VGA and HDMI for video output. The Aspire E5-471G-53XG comes with the standard connectivity options, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. Under the hood are a mid-range Intel processor, the i5-4210U, 8 GB of RAM, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 820M graphics and a 500 GB hard drive. The lack of an SSD kills the hopes of any instant Windows start-up but for a mid-range laptop, this is fine.

Battery life is where the Acer Aspire E5-471G-53XG shines. Its suggested battery life is around 10 hours on standby. This laptop is a perfect laptop for a mid-range user looking to replace a desktop with something that is easier to carry around.

The Acer Aspire E5-471G-53XG is a good desktop-replacement laptop, and is certainly a passable choice if you need to replace an older system and still keep compatibility with older programs and peripherals. Its longer battery life is its one advantage over the Lenovo Flex 2 (15-inch). However, the Flex 2 holds on to its Editors' Choice award, due to its innovative hinge and larger 1080p full HD touch screen for a list price of just $80 more.

Hands on: Acer Aspire E14 review
Source: Techradar English
The Acer Aspire E14 is a compelling package for $379 (about £250, AU$485), but those in the US won't be able to get their hands on it until July. That's a long lead time, and the competition in the affordable laptop space is only mounting with amazing Chromebooks - including the Chromebook 15, which Acer itself made.

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.
