Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-573G-59C3

Well. The E5-573G does deliver some punch for less than $500 (current price is $470). It’s the fastest for 3D/gaming under $500 and even $550 or as fast as others, if only new laptops are considered, but it costs less. It also comes with 1TB SSHD which is much better than the usual crappy 5400RPM 500-1000GB HDD. Add to that 8GB of RAM and a 802.11ac wifi card. This is currently unbeatable.
