Acer Aspire E5 Review

The Acer Aspire E5 571P 59

The Acer Aspire E5 571P is an affordable 15.6 inch touchscreen laptop with excellent hardware that is on a par with some of the best multimedia laptops out there. The nice discount that you receive with this laptop makes it excellent value for money and frankly there are very few laptops out there in the market that can match it. Acer has been the King of Budget Laptops, and this notebook is a testament to that fact.

At the center of the hardware specification for Acer Aspire E5 571P lies a respectable mid end processor for notebook, the Intel Core i5-4210U. Note that this not at all an entry level processor. Unlike the Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium processor, this processor can handle a lot more than basic word processing software and multiple browser tabs. Meaning you can perform light editing and video production jobs on this machine as well. However, this is not a gaming laptop by a long shot. Although the integrated graphic card should be able to handle light and old games like Minecraft at respectable 30 frame rate, do not expect it to perform gaming miracles.

What is included with the Acer Aspire E5 571P 59

Furthermore, the Acer Aspire E5 includes standard 500 GB and 4 GB of DDR 3 RAM. This is quite typical for budget laptop, therefore your deciding factor should not be based on these two components.

The most impressive feature of this laptop, other than the price point and the powerful processor, is the Touchscreen. The multi touch screen can greatly enhance your experience with Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 may not be the most intuitive OS out there, but once you couple with a Touchscreen and powerful processor, you get machine built for efficiency.

The only relative drawback of Acer Aspire 571P 59QA is that it is bulky. Weighing at about 6 pounds and measuring at around 1.24 inches in thickness, this laptop is one of thickest and heaviest in the budget laptop market. If you ask me though, the pros of this laptop significantly outweigh this con.  Never mind if you find it a little heavy for your school bag or satchel.  If you need to carry something lighter, then you may need to look at a tablet or some other alternative, but there are no other options that provide as much power and capacity as this laptop offers.  In fact, at this price point, this machine offers exceptional performance, which will only be bettered if you are prepared to pay more and increase the size of the processor chip.  Good buying at this level.

So is this laptop worth your money? The closest comparison to this laptop within the Acer brand is the Acer Aspire E 15 E5 511P-P7VB, but it is nowhere in comparison to the performance of this Acer Aspire E5 571P59. With a price tag around $400, it only manages to feature Intel Pentium processor with a touchscreen. A better laptop to compare is Dell Inspiron i3542 2267BK, but again it can’t compete with the value for money this Acer laptop offers. At $480 price point, the Dell laptop only offers Core Intel Core i3-4005U. Therefore, given all this, I would say this Acer E5 laptop is most certainly worth your every penny.

Summary of the Acer Aspire E5 571P 59

In conclusion, if you are looking for a fairly powerful 15.6 inch touchscreen at a budget price tag, then the Acer Aspire E5 571P 59 should definitely excite you. I would recommend this laptop for almost anyone looking to replace their old laptops or anyone looking for a simple well rounded machine.
