Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-573-P3YZ
Source: Laptop Media
Acer Aspire E5-573 doesn’t stretch too far in terms of performance, but you get the bare minimum at this price range, of course. Yet, the notebook managed to surprise us with distinguishable design signature that imitates denim resulting in a strong grip and no smudges and fingerprints. Rarely seen at this price point. However, we were mostly happy with the input devices. The keyboard offers long key travel and comfortable typing experience as for the touchpad – it’s responsive and doesn’t have the annoying wobbling effect. Speaking of which, the same cannot be said about the silicone legs at the bottom. When we placed the notebook on even surface it started wobbling a lot and we suspect that the front-right leg is slightly shorter than it should be. This is a small design flaw that greatly affects user experience, nonetheless.

Model: The first thing one notices when handling the Acer Aspire E5-573-P3YZ is the surface texture, which resembles some sort of fabric denim material. It provides a good grip and does not leave any smudges or fingerprint marks, which are highly visible on glossy surfaces. A lot of emphasis has been put on improving the keyboard design. The keys are evenly placed and big and it feels much better than in some mid range notebooks. The touchpad is big and even though it does not come with separate mouse buttons, it captures mouse clicks really well. This model comes with an Intel Pentium 3825U dual core processor rated at 1.9 GHz with 2 MB cache.
