Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R74Z Review And Specification


Acer A515-46-R3UB Review And Specification
 With the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS occupying the top spot on our list of the best affordable laptops, the new Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R74Z has a lot of expectations to live up to. There's a demand for affordable workhorse laptops because everyone works from home and kids are relegated to a corner with the computer for school. Your hopes may increase when you see that most of the options carry either 11th Gen Intel CPUs or brand-new AMD Ryzen chips.

Alongside other Intel versions for 2022, Acer has announced an AMD Ryzen 5-powered model, the Aspire 5 A515-45-R74Z, which sports the newest AMD Ryzen 5 and notable chassis design modifications.

The Acer Aspire has a similar appearance to its high-end competitor, the MacBook Pro, with a small, elegant, and subtle design that appeals to the eye without being unduly showy. With its incredibly smooth surface, the aluminum lid fits perfectly against the chassis when closed and holds a solid grip. First thing you notice when you open it is the thin black bezel that surrounds the screen.

At the very least, this laptop has a readily accessible motherboard and is easily upgradable, despite its thickest point measuring 0.7 inches. The package's total weight is 3.88 pounds, which is slightly more than that of its 15-inch brother but still manageable for daily use in college and for carrying around the house.

Excellent port selection is made. You get two USB 3.2 ports, one USB 2.0 port, and one USB-C port for your contemporary devices for your peripherals. Additionally, there is a Kensington Lock connector, an HDMI port for an external display, an Ethernet port for hardwiring, and a standard headphone jack. Wi-Fi 6 is used for wireless communication.


Budget laptops these days almost often have a 1080p display, and the 15.6-inch display continues that pattern. Even though the matte screen occasionally catches glare from outside light, it will do the job. Although it is quite dull on average (259 nits), it is brighter than the Asus VivoBook 15 and Lenovo Yoga C740, which have average brightness levels of 247 nits and 251 nits, respectively.

However, the Aspire 5 screen can be a little uncomfortable in really strong light. Nevertheless, the screen is good for working at night. More color saturation on the screen adds liveliness to otherwise lifeless surroundings. The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R74Z is a great device for web browsing and movie watching, but for photo editing and media creation, you may want to consider an external display for improved color reproduction.

Keyboard & Touchpad

Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R3UB Keyboard
One of the few things on the 15-inch Acer Aspire 5 specs sheet that you'll appreciate is the full-sized keyboard, which has a number pad for easy data entering. The large size of the keyboard makes it much more comfortable for little hands to use for multitasking, even though it is comfortable enough for typing. Because of its soft backlighting, which is similar to that of Apple's MacBook Pro computers, you may use it in low light.

Acer aims to match the aluminum finish of the trackpad to that of the chassis. The touchpad has an integrated fingerprint reader, but you may need to disable multitouch gestures because the touch-drag feature can be difficult to operate. Unexpectedly, there is a Function key that disables the trackpad—especially for extended periods of time spent typing.

A Battery's Life

It turns out that the battery in the Acer Aspire 5 performs better than the one in the model from last ear, which was somewhat disappointing. Although Acer states that it can run for eight hours on a single charge, in actual use, you can get slightly less than seven, which is still quite good.
