Reviews for the Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4

78% Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Affordable endurance machine. The hunt for a low-priced and, at the same time, long-lasting office machine has come to an end. The Extensa 2510 not only has long battery runtimes to offer but also brings along a good keyboard and matte screen. The bundle is available for just over 400 Euros (~$525).
71% Acer Extensa 15 EX2510 Review
Source: T Break English version
Acer has clearly raised the bar in terms of build quality and design with their new Extensa EX2510. With quality design the notebook offers a notch more than average features in terms of hardware and software. To complement its features the Extensa EX2510 has sufficient performance power, making it stand out in its category. One concern though is the pricing, which admittedly is on a higher side compared to the competition. The Extensa EX2510 is priced at AED 1,799 for the above configuration without Windows OS, while the Inspiron 3520 reviewed earlier was tagged for AED 1,999 for the much better configuration including touchscreen and not to forget the Dell branding.

Model: The Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 is an affordable laptop made to be portable with great battery life. Majority of the chassis is constructed from matte black plastic while the top cover and palm rest have a brushed metal finish. Unlike most Acer laptop models, the Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 does not have a maintenance hatch for upgrades, but this in turn allows for a bigger battery rated at 5000 mAh to be fitted.

The Microsoft Windows 8.1 system comes with an Intel Core i3-4030U processor clocked at 1.9 GHz, 4 GB DDR3 single-channel RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400 and a 500 GB hard disk from Western Digital. Specification is as expected at the price point but it does not mean the Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 is any less capable of performing everyday task. The matte 15.6 inch 16:9 TN LED display delivers a satisfactory image quality.

There is a tactile keyboard and an off-centre mouse pad making it comfortable enough for extended typing and navigation. The 2.5 kg laptop packs in an Intel Lynx Point-LP high definition audio controller, Bluetooth 4.0, a Matshita DVD drive, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port and a SD card reader. Users will find the Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 a good laptop for study or work.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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

4030U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz without Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

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.

74.5%: 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.
