Acer Aspire 5 (A517-51G-8433)

 

The Acer Aspire 5 laptop offers a bright 17.3-inch screen, optical drive, and good array of parts and ports for a grand. It'll satisfy DVD watchers and glasses wearers.

Big, bright 1080p display. DVD player onboard. Decent battery life.

No backlit keyboard, Windows Hello, or Thunderbolt 3. Hard-to-find Delete key.

Bottom Line: The Acer Aspire 5 laptop offers a bright 17.3-inch screen, optical drive, and good array of parts and ports for a grand. It'll satisfy DVD watchers and glasses wearers.

Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G (i7-8550U, MX 150, Full-HD) Laptop Review

 

Fit primarily for work! The new Aspire 5 is based on Intel's 8th-gen Core series. On top of that, the 17-incher offers a dedicated graphics card. Unfortunately, it will only manage to impress casual gamers. In this review, you will learn how well the...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Do not buy

 

Be warned the product information is incorrect. The resolution is not full HD (1900x1020) as described but is in fact the much cheaper 1600 x 900.

Fast and reliable

 

Perfect for streaming, apps and getting work done. Shouldn't be used for gaming however can run certain high end games such as Fortnite which is a plus.

Good Laptop

 

I bought this to help with my Masters, has all the features that I require, runs quickly and looks nice. Excellent processing systems and also has a CD drive, which is no longer standard. Would recommend

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Great, usable laptop

 

I bought this laptop, primarily for the 17" screen which works great. Before I bought it I knew I wanted a hybrid drive as I use Windows 10 half the time (Ubuntu doesn't need a fast drive). I also bought a rapoo 5GHz wireless mouse for a tenner. The...
