Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-551-T8X3
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?

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.
