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

 

Great size and screen. Fast enough for all the applications that I use.

Very minor point - the power off button is next to the delete button. So care needed when typing at speed.

Very quick load ups on multiple pages and can run multiple programs with no lag.

Would like the power button to me moved off the keyboard as it sits where the tradition Del button would be and often find you hit when attempting to delete, luckily you actually have to hold it down to shutdown so haven’t had the system shutdown due...

Quick to load up, light and portable.

WiFi wouldn't connect on setup but this was rectified by connecting directly via a ethernet cable and reinstalling the WiFi driver.

It logs in so fast Everything is quick to open

I am typing away and suddenly the typing moves to the curser and types in the wrong place. It is extremely annoying and I would love to know how to stop it.

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

 

It looked really nice and was really well made and the performance was excellent for the price.

The one major point I didn't like so it went back was because of the stupidly loud fan. As soon as you turn the laptop on the fan starts and it's on 100%.
