It seems lately that low end budget models have move aside for more popular mid-range options as people start to realize that buying the cheapest available laptop is not always the best idea. Today we are looking at one of the latest mid-range options to hit the market which is the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56 NX.A1FEK.005. This 15.6 inch model has some great mid-range specifications that we will look at below in more detail as we go over its benefits and downsides.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
- Nice full sized 15.6 inch display gives you plenty of viewing area with its HD display gives you good picture quality when streaming or just doing day to day tasks
- Has above average storage compared to other models in this price range due to the large 1 TB SSD hard drive
- The Intel Core i5 processor may not give you the same wow factor as the i7 but is much more budget friendly while still performing at a high level
- 4 USB 3.0 ports available while many others only have 2 or 3
- Includes Dual-Band Wi-Fi for better wireless speeds
- Isn’t all that light even for a full sized laptop model so may not be the best option for those heavily on the go
- Only comes with an integrated graphics card so will struggle to meet the demands of most modern games that are very graphic intensive
- Would have been nice to see more than just the basic 8 GB of RAM, this may have an impact on users who do heavy multi-tasking
- No optical drive is included
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56 NX.A1FEK.005 is a nice full sized laptop for those who want average to slightly above average performance at a reasonable price. Also those who want plenty of storage space will love the large 1 TB SSD drive that comes with it.
