78% Acer Aspire E5-521 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Quiet long-lasting runner. The Aspire E5-521 can boast with a low operating noise and very long battery life. The laptop also has plenty of storage capacity. Its only real shortcoming is the dark, low-contrast screen.

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.
