Reviews for the Acer TravelMate X5 TMX514-51-7411

80% Acer TravelMate X5 review: Size isn’t everything
Source: It Pro English
The Acer is lighter than its rivals, and that’s a big advantage – it means this laptop is easier to sling in a bag. It’s still got enough computing power for day-to-day work, and the Acer has excellent battery life. However, the lightweight design and lower price do create compromise. Rival machines have more power alongside better screens, and other laptops also have crisper keyboards. The Surface Laptop 3 and Dell XPS 13 are not exactly heavy, and they serve up more power and finesse for only a little more cash. However, if you need a laptop that’s lighter than anything else – while still providing reasonable computing power – then the Acer is a good option at an affordable price.

The Acer TravelMate X5 is the best option around if you need a laptop where slim, light design is a key consideration – but the strength of competitors mean that it’s not the best all-round work option.

The Acer TravelMate X5 delivers a highly portable package with plenty of power for those that need it away from the office. However, that performance is concentrated in the CPU, and won’t help those that need powerful graphics or compute performance.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

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.  


i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


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.


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
