Acer Aspire E5-575G (i5-7200U, GTX 950M) Notebook Review

 

Lots of hardware for little money. Thanks to a GeForce GTX 950M and a cutting-edge Kaby Lake processor, Acer's Aspire E5-575G should render even sophisticated games smoothly - and this at a competitive price of just 600 Euros ($673). What is the catch?

superb price-performance ratio ; decent configuration ; fast processor ; gaming-suitable graphics card ; Full HD resolution ; USB Type-C ; long battery life ; empty M.2 slot ; ac WiFi

screen's very low brightness ; no Windows operating system ; slow hard drive ; throttling in the stress test

It should not be surprising that an uncompromisingly high-end device cannot be expected from the 600-Euro (~$673) laptop category. Acer, however, offers a solid configuration and gaming suitable device to the mainstream market with its Aspire E15...

Acer Aspire E 15 (E5-575G-57D4) Review

The Best Cheap Laptop (and How to Shop for One)

 

The Acer Aspire E5-575G-53VG is the best cheap laptop of the 100-plus models we researched in 2016, with a solid-state drive, a 1080p screen, and dedicated graphics—unheard-of features at this price.

Simple and good for the price

 

Seems a little flimsy and as if the charger hole may break in the future but good for everything basic

Great well priced laptop

 

My old laptop was taking an age to boot every time we turned it on, plus it was running Windows 7, my wife had to go online to complete some study work this would have taken an age on our outdated machine. The Acer with the i5 cpu and 1tb hard drive...

Acer is Ace.

 

Really good budget workhorse laptop. Not too many frills but everything needed for a good business/leisure laptop. I've only owned Dell and Toshiba in the past but this Acer holds its own with them.
