Acer Aspire 5 A514 Laptop Review: Not Intel Comet Lake at its Best

 

It may be equipped with Intel's latest 10th gen processor, but almost everything else about the laptop feels rather dated. The Aspire 5 is heavier and larger than many other 14-inch alternatives without offering any notable advantages.

two internal storage bays;well-calibrated display;relatively inexpensive;RJ-45, full-size HDMI;easy serviceability;long battery life;quiet fan noise;rigid hinge

relies on proprietary AC adapter; no USB Type-C charging;keyboard keys have weak feedback and shallow travel;below average CPU performance;large footprint; thick bezels;heavy for its screen size;CPU performance bugs;spongy clickpad keys;no SD card reader

ACER Aspire 5 A514-52 14" Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5, 256 GB SSD, Silver

 

Set-up was relatively easy and speed connecting a number of different websites open at the same time is great.

The fan is often loud for periods but moving the laptop around, does seem to cure this. Battery life is disappointing; nowhere as long as I'd expected. The advertising write-up should also be much more specific about the programmes which are already...

It is light and compact. Boots up quickly and has good Ram and Memory

Start key next to Delete key. It would be better to have Start at bottom left and Delete at top right, where the Start button currently is.
