Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-551-T8X3

77% Acer Aspire E5-551-T8X3 Kaveri A10-7300 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Kaveri incoming. AMD braces itself against Intel's smart Haswell entry-level CPUs with its latest iteration of the Bulldozer architecture. Acer packs the brand new A10-7300 quad-core with integrated Radeon R6 graphics in one of its eternally unchanged standard casings, and presents an affordable multimedia machine to the bargain-hunting buyer for just 500 Euros (~$670). Can AMD stand up against Intel this time?
60% Acer Aspire E5-551 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
We think that £430 is a large enough budget for firms to build a basic laptop that ticks most of the important boxes, and the Acer Aspire ticks most of the boxes – but only just. This is a reasonable notebook that will suffice for the new school term, but it’s worth considering the alternative – machines like Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 2 11 are smaller, but they’re also lighter, more versatile and more affordable.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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.


68.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
