Big brother. Is bigger also better in this case? Our comparison review will uncover this with respect to old problem areas such as the display. The 15.6-inch model achieved consistently strong results in our previous review. We expected the same from this device, when we started the test.

All in all, the Acer Aspire E (E5-771G-51T2) is a very good desktop-replacement laptop. It justifies its higher price tag over less expensive models by virtue of its 1080p HD screen, better performance, more system memory, and the fact that you can still see everything on the screen from six feet away. That said, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch$449.99 at Dell, our Editors' Choice for budget desktop-replacement laptops, is still a much better value.

All in all, the Acer Aspire E5-771G-51T2 is something of a mixed bag. It has a decent, large screen that supports full HD video resolution, but its price point precludes Blu-ray support. It has acceptable performance, but struggles with more processor-intensive tasks such as Photoshop and video editing that might benefit from the screen resolution.

Acer’s Aspire E5-771G-51T2 is a relic from an age of computing that’s coming to an end. Aside from gaming, a large laptop is no longer needed to obtain top-tier performance, and the more portable 15-inch and 14-inch form factors make more sense for average buyers. The Aspire E5 17-inch is bulky, difficult to travel with, and not much quicker than its peers.

Desk culprit. Acer's affordable 17.3-inch laptop is designed for use on the desk at home. An AMD APU provides the needed computing power, it offers a high storage capacity, and the battery life does not come too short either.

Stay-at-home. Acer's Aspire E17 E5-752G-W7TY sports one of the newest AMD CPUs from the Carrizo generation. This report discloses how the three-month-old A10-8700P scores, and whether an HD+ screen in a 17-inch device is still compelling.

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

AMD Radeon R8 M365DX: Dual-graphics combination of an integrated Radeon R6 (Carrizo A10-8700P) and dedicated Radeon R7 M360. As a hybrid Crossfire solution, performance will depend heavily on driver support for the game. Performance may be faster on a single R7 M360 if driver support is poor.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.Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon R4 (Beema):

Integrated GPU on select AMD Beema APUs. Based on the GCN architecture with 128 shader units and a core clock up to 800 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.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.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.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.AMD A-Series:

A6-6310: Quad-core APU for entry-level devices and sub-notebooks, codenamed Beema. Based on the Puma+ architecture and integrates a Radeon R4 GPU.AMD Carrizo:

A10-8700P: Mid-range Carrizo APU of 2015 containing two "Excavator" CPU modules (with 4 integer and 2 FP cores counted as 4 compute cores). Performance can differ greatly depending on the configured TDP (ranging from 12 to 35 Watts).
