The Acer Aspire has an elegant, understated design that is slender and sleek without being unduly flashy, much like its high-end counterpart, the MacBook Pro. Due to its incredibly smooth surface, the aluminum lid is held securely against the chassis when it is closed and looks beautiful. When you open it, the display's thin black bezel is the first thing you see.

At the very least, this laptop is easily upgradeable with an easily accessible motherboard, measuring 0.7 inches at its thickest point. The entire package weighs 4.7 pounds, which is slightly more than that of its 15-inch sister but is still manageable for day-to-day use in college and can be carried around the house.

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

The 17.3-inch display continues the pattern of inexpensive laptops having 1080p displays, which is very common these days. Even if the matte screen occasionally reflects glare from outside light, it will accomplish its task. The Lenovo Yoga C740 and Asus VivoBook 15, which have average brightness ratings of 247 nits and 251 nits, respectively, are brighter than this model, which is a little bit dim and averages 259 nits.

Although the screen is good for working at night, it might be a little unpleasant in too bright light. The screen's increased color saturation enhances the brightness of lifeless scenes. On the Acer Aspire 5 A517, you'll enjoy viewing movies and browsing the web, but if you're interested in photo editing and media creation, an external monitor with superior color reproduction might be necessary.

Keyboard & Touchpad

Acer Aspire 5 A517-52-59SV Keyboard

The 17-inch Acer Aspire 5 has a full-sized keyboard with a number pad for easy data entry, which is one of the few features you'll like. Small hands will find this keyboard even more comfortable for multitasking given its huge construction and adequate comfort for typing. Thanks to the soft illumination, just like on Apple's MacBook Pro computers, you may use it in a dark environment.

Acer aims to offer the touchpad the same metal finish as the chassis for the trackpad. The touchpad has a fingerprint reader built into it, however you might need to disable multitouch because the touch-drag function can be difficult to use. Unexpectedly, there is a Function key that disables the trackpad, especially when you are engaged in prolonged periods of typing.

A Battery's Life

As it turns out, the battery in the Acer Aspire 5 performs better than the one on the model from a year ago. In actual use, you get just about 7 hours from the battery, which isn't bad at all considering that Acer claims it would last for 8 hours on a single charge.
