Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE (2023) Review

 The new Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE has high expectations, following in the footsteps of a predecessor that was a terrific budget laptop, even earning a spot on our Editors' Choice list. With most individuals working from home and college students addicted to online classes and assignments, there is a demand for high-quality, low-cost laptop computers.

Your expectations may climb with the new Acer Aspire 5 range, as these new computers carry either 10th Gen Intel CPUs or AMD Ryzen chips. While the Aspire A515-55-35SE is a decent price if all you need is a new laptop, a few idiosyncrasies, particularly a dim display, may be difficult to overlook.

Nonetheless, it checks most of the boxes for a basic laptop, including consistent daily-use performance and a wide port selection. However, as this Acer Aspire 5 review will show, once the world has returned to normal, and with newer 11th Gen chips on the market, this may not be the first model you pick up.

Acer Aspire 5 design

The Acer Aspire 5 is simple, with a metal cover, which is unusual at this price point. And, if you're looking for a super-slim laptop, the A515-55-35SE isn't it. This laptop is 0.71 inches thick at its thickest point, however it is easily upgradeable with an easily accessible motherboard. The kit weights less than 4 pounds in total, making it light enough to lug around the house yet heavy enough to carry through a day at college.

The port selection is superb. You get three USB-A ports for peripherals and a single USB-C port for current gadgets. An Ethernet port for hardwiring, an HDMI port for an external display, a Kensington Lock connector, and a standard headphone jack are also included.

A 1080p display is now quite standard on low-cost laptops, and the 15.6-inch display continues that tradition. It will get the job done, albeit the matte screen will occasionally catch a glare from outside light. It has a low average brightness of 259 nits, although it is brighter than rival models like the Asus VivoBook 15 and Lenovo Yoga C740, which have 247 nits and 251 nits, respectively.

Nonetheless, the screen is adequate for working at night, but really intense light may make the Aspire 5 screen uncomfortable. The color saturation on the screen is more strong, which improves the liveliness of dreary scenes. The Acer Aspire 5 is great for viewing movies and accessing the web, but for photo editing and media creation, you may require an external display with superior color reproduction.

Touchpad and Keyboard

The chiclet keyboard on the Aspire 5 is full-size and contains a number pad on the right side for easy data entering. The keyboard is pleasant for typing, and given its large size, little hands will find it even more comfortable for multitasking. Because of the mild illumination, you may use it in a dark room, just like Apple's MacBook Pro computers.

Acer aims to provide the touchpad the same aluminum finish as the chassis. The touchpad includes a fingerprint reader, however you may need to disable multitouch gestures because the touch-drag mechanism can be difficult to operate. Surprisingly, there is a Function key that disables the trackpad, which is useful when typing.

Performance of the Acer A515-55-35SE

Our Acer Aspire 5 is outfitted with a 10th Generation 1GHz Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD storage, and Intel's UHD graphics card. This laptop's configuration is distinctly entry-level, yet it provides adequate power for daily work. The Core i3 processor can manage Chrome, Spotify, and Firefox all at the same time.

Most users will find the Aspire 5 to be fully enough for all but the most demanding processor-based tasks. Except for demanding activities, the Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE is a good pick in terms of performance. Everyday operations such as accessing the internet, streaming media, and editing images and videos will work flawlessly.

You won't be able to play contemporary games on this new Acer Aspire 5 because it has an integrated video card. The latest AAA versions won't render correctly, and everything probably won't run smoothly. even with the most minimal settings. It employs Vega 8 graphics, which are only capable of handling casual games at low settings. We suggest the Asus TUF FX505DV-ES74 if you're looking for a cheap gaming laptop. It has a 120Hz screen and an integrated Nvidia GeForce 2060 graphics card.
