Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS (2023) Review And Specification


Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS (2023) Review

Most mid-range machines, such as the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS, are sometimes disregarded, yet they do an excellent job at an affordable price. People are opting for luxury ultrabooks, which offer the best of both worlds - portability, power, and sleek aesthetics - or affordable laptops under $500 to fulfill their daily computing needs and economic constraints.

This leaves mid-range laptops completely overlooked, despite their great blend of price and performance - which makes them an ideal investment for many users. That perfect balance is what the Acer Aspire 5 slim laptop has long provided its fans, with powerful components and reliable performance topping the list while retaining an inexpensive and accessible pricing.

The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS, which has been updated with the newest 11th generation Intel Core CPUs, is a more than adequate laptop that checks all the appropriate boxes for a value day-to-day notebook. Acer demonstrates once again that mid-range PCs are the way to go, particularly for customers on a tight budget.

Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS (2023) Design

The Acer Aspire resembles its premium rival, the MacBook Pro, with thin, elegant, and modest style that is appealing without being overtly spectacular. When closed, the aluminum lid looks beautiful and, thanks to its super-smooth surface, is held securely against the chassis. The minimal black bezel encircling the display is the first thing you notice when you open it.

Although it is only 0.7 inches thick at its thickest point, this laptop is easily upgradeable thanks to an easily accessible motherboard. The bundle weighs 3.6 pounds in total, making it light enough to lug around the house and easy to carry around for a day at college. 


The port selection is superb. You get two USB 3.2 ports for peripherals, one USB 2.0 port, and a single USB-C port for current devices. An Ethernet port for hardwiring, an HDMI port for an external display, a Kensington Lock connector, and a standard headphone jack are also included. Wi-Fi 6 provides wireless access.



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 A515 is great for viewing movies and surfing the web, but for photo editing and media creation, you may require an additional monitor with superior color reproduction.


Touchpad and Keyboard

Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS (2023) Keyboard

The full-sized keyboard is one of the few things on the Acer Aspire 5 specs sheet that you'll appreciate, and it includes a number pad for easy data entry. 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 Aspire 5

Our Acer Aspire 5 review device is equipped with an 11th generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor (4 cores, 8 threads), 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD storage, and Intel's Iris Xe graphics card. The configuration of this laptop falls somewhere between the powerful Core i7 and the entry-level Core i3 models, with adequate capability to handle most day-to-day chores. The Core i5 processor can manage Chrome, Spotify, and Firefox all at the same time.


Most users will find the Acer Aspire to be fully adequate for all but the most demanding processor-based tasks. Except for complicated activities, the Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS 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 modern games on this new Acer Aspire 5 because it has an integrated video card. The most recent AAA releases will not render properly, and everything will stutter. If you're looking for a low-cost gaming laptop, we recommend the Asus TUF FX505DV-ES74, which has a 120Hz screen and a dedicated Nvidia GeForce 2060 graphics card.
