Broadwell all-rounder. With the Aspire, Acer offers a 17.3-inch all-rounder equipped with the latest Broadwell Core i7 processors. Furthermore, it features a GeForce graphics card, two storage devices (SSD and HDD) and a bright Full HD display.
70% Acer Aspire E (E5-771G-51T2)

All in all, the Acer Aspire E (E5-771G-51T2) is a very good desktop-replacement laptop. It justifies its higher price tag over less expensive models by virtue of its 1080p HD screen, better performance, more system memory, and the fact that you can still see everything on the screen from six feet away. That said, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch$449.99 at Dell, our Editors' Choice for budget desktop-replacement laptops, is still a much better value.

All in all, the Acer Aspire E5-771G-51T2 is something of a mixed bag. It has a decent, large screen that supports full HD video resolution, but its price point precludes Blu-ray support. It has acceptable performance, but struggles with more processor-intensive tasks such as Photoshop and video editing that might benefit from the screen resolution.

Acer’s Aspire E5-771G-51T2 is a relic from an age of computing that’s coming to an end. Aside from gaming, a large laptop is no longer needed to obtain top-tier performance, and the more portable 15-inch and 14-inch form factors make more sense for average buyers. The Aspire E5 17-inch is bulky, difficult to travel with, and not much quicker than its peers.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

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.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

3 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

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.

72.75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
