Reviews for the Acer Aspire E5-573G-75B3
Source: Comp Reviews
Acer has taken their budget class Aspire E5 laptop design and upgraded a number of parts to provide an affordable and capable 15-inch laptop system. It does make a few compromises though to keep the costs down but most systems in the $700 to $800 price range have to. For instance, it offers a high resolution display but the quality of the panel is not the best.

The overall finish is kept classy with a matte black look that is professional. The entire chassis feels solid in hand and there is a full-sized tile-style keyboard. The 15.6 inch Active Matrix TFT display has a Full HD resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio with good colors and contrast. Even the brightness levels are acceptable making it easier to work in bright environments.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
