Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-551G-T5TW
The Acer Aspire E5-551 isn't a disaster, but for a machine that costs what it does, that's the biggest compliment it can be paid. It really boils down to what you need from a laptop. Its 1TB hard disk drive is capacious, but slow. The display is big, but suffers from a low pixel-resolution. Windows 8.1 apps run smoothly, but the display has no touch operation. While performance on the desktop isn't too shabby, Acer's claims that AMD's new Kaveri processor makes it a value-based powerhouse are very off the mark.
