Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-573G-57HR
Source: PC Mag
The Acer Aspire E5-573G-57HR is a top-notch desktop-replacement laptop, with a better display and more powerful gaming and processing capabilities than similarly priced machines. While the system can't run the most demanding games or play the majority of titles on high settings, it's a modest option that still costs at least several hundred dollars less than a specialized gaming laptop.

Model: The E5-573G-57HR belongs to the E5 series of easy to use and affordable entry-level laptops. It is called a desktop replacement, which is partially true but not quite there yet. The beautiful case gives it a "come pick me up and use me" kind of vibe. The full size keyboard lacks a backlight. The touchpad is big enough to use and can be used to perform gesture controls. With 15 inch Full HD display, the laptop is alright for for movies and games. An Intel Core i5 dual core processor and 8 GB of RAM makes for smooth use.
The system performance tests have shown that this laptop has a good score for everyday use, but it is not made for more demanding games. On battery, the laptop can be used for up to 6 hours and it lasts 12 hours in idle mode. This laptop is aimed at price-conscious buyers rather than power-users. Its price is low enough. Thus, the product has a very high price performance ratio.
