Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-571G-536E

79% Acer Aspire E5-571G-536E Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Solid total package. Acer introduces its Aspire E5-571G as an all-round laptop that includes a dedicated Nvidia graphics card and Intel Core i5 processor. However, hardware is not everything in this category - it very much depends on performance and quality. Has Acer created a successful combination for 700 Euros (~$920)? Find out in the following report.
40% Acer Aspire E15 Touch, an Affordable 15.6" Multimedia Laptop
Source: Digital Versus English version
The Acer Aspire E15 Touch is a mid-range 15" laptop with—you've guessed it—a touch screen. This is yet another computer whose decent all-round performance is ruined by a catastrophic screen. To top it off, the audio didn't in any way compensate for the poor display.

Acer Aspire E5-571G – когда внешность обманчива

Single Review, online available, Short, Date: 09/23/2014



The Acer Aspire E5-571G-536E is a capable laptop with the performance expected for its price point and decent design. The completely black chassis is finished with a brush metal pattern and looks simple and professional. There is a full sized island-style keyboard which suggests that typing on the laptop is comfortable and responsive.

The Windows 8.1 64-bit system is powered by an Intel Core i5-4210U processor clocked at 1.70 GHz, 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM (up to 16 GB supported), and Nvidia GeForce 840M GPU with 2 GB VRAM. Storage space is 1 TB, which is a nice option to have.

The specifications are pretty impressive especially since there are also a DVD burner, which is absent from many notebooks these days, SD card reader and a webcam with microphone. Users get to interact with a 15.6 inch ComfyView Full HD LCD with LED technology. Other hardware includes 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, HDMI out adapter and even VGA. Business users can be assured that their laptop is equipped for older projection hardware for their critical presentation. The 2.5 kg laptop is also equipped with a 6-cell lithium ion battery rated at 2500 mAh.

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

59.5%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
