Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-471-59RT
Source: PC Mag
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.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
