Acer Aspire E1 review

 

The Aspire E1 may be inexpensive, but Acer sacrificed a lot to cram powerful hardware into a laptop that sells below $600.

The Acer Aspire E1 may have some of the latest hardware from Intel and Nvidia, but it remains a laptop that’s rooted in the past. A lackluster display, poor battery life and a thick, bulky chassis make the E1 feel as if it was designed a few years ago....

Acer Aspire E1-572-6870

 

The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 is a laptop for the budget-minded power user.

Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Full numeric keypad. Six hours of battery life. Removable battery. HDMI and VGA.

Lots of pre-loaded programs. Only 1,366 by 768 resolution (Display is limited to 1,366 by 768 resolution). Could use more USB 3.0 ports. Some screen-door effect on display. No touch screen.

And there's the rub: The Aspire E1-572-6870 is one of those systems that skirts the mainstream and the budget categories, and at this price or higher you really want a touch screen. With a list price of $580, the Aspire E1-572-6870 is $200 more than...

Acer Aspire E1 review

 

A budget laptop with some maddening flaws

Affordable ; Attractive design ; Great keyboard ; HDMI-out and 3 USBs

Poor touchpad & button ; Too heavy ; Filled with bloatware ; Mediocre battery life

Scores in depth These days, buying a budget laptop doesn't always mean compromising everything you need from a computer. For this notebook, unfortunately, compromise rears its ugly head. Acer's Aspire E1-472G-6844, priced at $599.99 (about £350,...

Acer Aspire E1 review

 

Budget laptops rarely set the pulse racing, but the Acer Aspire E1 excites purely by virtue of its price. For a mere £350, this 15.6in laptop touts a Core i3 CPU, 750GB hard disk and all the essential trimmings. See also: what's the best laptop you can...

An unshowy 15.6in laptop with good build quality and a great specification for the money – a bona fide bargain

Acer Aspire E1-570p NX.MFSEK.001

 

Well built and lighter than my previous laptop and faster too.

Get time to know how to use Windows 8.1 Problem of compatibility with encrypted pre-loaded Norton and Mcafee antiviruses with my own one. This seems to have created Faults bucket Error systems

Acer Aspire E1-570p NX.MFSEK.001

 

Although reconditioned the laptop was "as new" in condition.

Battery life appears poor and not holding charge as I thought it would.

Acer Aspire E1-570p NX.MFSEK.001

 

Having a touch screen when running windows 8 is crucial, and the Acer Aspire's touch screen is very responsive and accurate. The touch screen also makes other tasks a pleasure to do. The Aspire E1-572p is very powerful with the i5 processor. Fast sleek...

The only bad point I've found so far is windows 8. The app screen is a good idea like tablets'; overall, 8 is not good. The Aspire E1-572p is too good for windows 8. Only has 4Gb memory. i5 on windows 8 should have 6 - 8Gb min.
