Acer Aspire E5-571-56UQ 15.6-Inch Laptop Review
Practical and stylish with nice pattern and sleek curvature titanium silver Acer Aspire E5 weighs 5.51 pounds (typical weight for this size of laptops) and has dimensions of 15.02 x 10.08 x 1.19 inches (1 inch thin at the front)- it is quite portable with also its 15 inch screen and looks kind of more expensive than it actually is. Ergonomic non-backlit Acer FineTip keyboard is comfy to type on with its larger keys and has a 10-key numpad for quicker number crunching and accurate and responsive Precision touchpad optimised for Windows 8 functions- navigating easily through apps, pages and photos. You get up to 7 hours of battery life from its 6-cell lithium ion battery (5000mAh) so you can be out and about and away from power outlets for quite a while.

Conclusion: The E Series Acer Aspire E15-571-56UQ has the quality and solid performance you need with the ultra-low voltage Haswell i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM to launch apps very quickly, is a powerful daily tasks computer for streaming videos, working on Microsoft Word and Excel, multitasking, net surfing and playing lighter games or some of the newer titles at lower resolutions- suitable for anything except for the very demanding programs. There is no DVD drive and it doesn’t come with a decent dedicated mid-range graphics card for gaming but an integrated Intel HD 4400 with lacklustre performance but still more than adequate for most things other than heavy games. This is a decent mid-range notebook overall with a very fair price to boot and comes with a 1 year limited parts and labor warranty if you need that within this period.
