70% Acer Aspire E15 review
Source: Techradar English
You'll have to weigh out your priorities when considering whether or not to pick up the Acer Aspire E15. On one hand, it features impressive hardware and performance for a reasonable price. On the other hand, nagging problems, like the viewing angle, are bound to become more annoying over time. Consider this budget notebook only if you don't intend to move it very much.

Comment

Model: This Acer Aspire 17 Serie Model is essentially a similar to the Aspire 15 series with a bigger display. With matte 17.3 inch Full HD LCD display and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, this laptop provides good colors without the uninvited reflections on non-matte displays. Its wide-viewing angles also contribute to enjoyable visual experiences for users. It comes with a switchable graphics solution, whereas the frugal Intel HD Graphics 5500 adapter is suitable for standard operations like web browsing and writing documents and its NVIDIA GeForce 940M provides better gaming graphic performance. The latter is able to run most of the newer games at least on medium settings. However, this notebook is slightly bulkier than the Aspire 15 series at 2.8 kg as well as a dimension of 11.01" (28.19 cm) in length and 1.25" (3.18 cm) in thickness.

Other than that, its casing and feel are alike its sibling with a plastic build and textile pattern finishing. This may not appeal to certain users due to its cheap-looking exterior, but it does provide additional grip, which is good for carrying around. Similarly, its keyboard comes with a numeric keypad and lacks a backlight for usage in dim environments. Powered with a decent Intel Broadwell i5-5200U dual core processor and 8 GB of RAM, users will find multitasking on non-demanding applications to be a breeze. Storage-wise, it comes with 1 TB hard drive with 8 GB SSD cache from Seagate. Its connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.

NVIDIA GeForce 940M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce 900M series, based on the Maxwell architecture. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
5200U: 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.

The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
