79.9% Acer Extensa 2540 (i5-7200U, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Durable. Acer’s 15.6-incher scores some major points with its hardware combination of a Kaby Lake CPU, an SSD and 8 GB of RAM (running in dual-channel mode). The great battery life adds more value to the package. The screen proves to be disappointing, though.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. 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.
