Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S Review 2

Price: under $200

If you are looking for an entry level laptop for basic functionality, or maybe something to suit a beginner, then we are good to go.  If you are looking to perform miracles, then maybe we need to get on the same page. This machine is a basic entry level laptop, and will provide adequate features for someone who needs email and likes to browse the internet, because isn’t that what most of use anyway?  If this sounds like you, or someone you would like to help get started, then have a look at the Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S.

In fact, from what I have seen this laptop has some of the highest number of customers in a very short span of time since its release. Which basically means that people actually are flocking to purchase this budget priced machine.

Hardware: 11.6″ HD, Intel Celeron N2840, 2 GB DDR 3, 32GB Internal, No Optical Drive

Lets us first get started with the hardware this machine offers. The Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S features an entry level Intel Celeron N2840 2.16 GHz processor. You can rejoice in the fact knowing that there are lower level processors in the market such as some of the Atom processors. So after all, this laptop is not the worst performer in the market. However, that does not imply at all that you should expect anything more than the most basics of tasks from this laptop. This notebook is simply designed while keeping two things in mind: portability and affordability.  This notebook offers 2 GB of RAM, which is expandable to 4 GB, but there may be no need as you will not find much difference in performance if you do. Furthermore, it harbors 32 GB SSD drive soldered, meaning it is not changeable. If you need more hard disk capacity, consider getting an external drive. 

The bottom line though is this laptop is built to cater to a very specific type of people. People who want nothing more than the ability to write reports, research on the internet, enjoy listening to music or have light entertainment such as playing candy crush on Facebook. This is an excellent laptop as a gift especially to young ones whose requirement from a laptop do not exceed surfing the internet. 

It is very slim and also very light. Carrying this laptop would literally be like holding a feather in your hand, if you compare it with other laptops. Portability wise, you should have absolutely no issue with this machine. Performance wise, well that is a very broad and relative term. It all depends upon how and what tasks you will perform. Many people thumb laptops down because they expect too much for too little. The fact of the matter is that you get what you pay for. 

One of the great features about the Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S is that it has a plethora of connectivity and interfacing options. It has Bluetooth, Wifi, 1 X USB 3.0 port, 1 x USB 2.0 port, HDMI and SD card reader. It also has a HD webcam, Ethernet LAN and audio speakers. If you ever wish for a larger screen, the good news is that you can hook a monitor up via the HDMI easily. 

In conclusion, the Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S is the entry level minimalist style laptop from Acer. This laptop is on the lowest level of the performance scale, so be mindful of your expectations.  But I have seen many reviews of this machine by users who really enjoys the features of this laptop.  Maybe not a machine built for performance, but it is built for convenience at a very affordable price tag.  At this price, you really can’t go wrong – Thanks Acer!
