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.

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.Intel Core i5: 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.
