Acer Aspire E1-572-6870

 

The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 is a high-performing budget laptop that outlasts and outperforms rivals. It's a great choice for those value-minded users who don't mind paying a little bit more to get a little more performance.

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

The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 ($579.99 list) is a fairly nondescript, glossy-black laptop, with a 15.6-inch screen and full-size keyboard. It's the moderately priced replacement for that ancient wheezing laptop with the battery that can only last fifteen...

Acer's Aspire E1-572-6870 is a good, but not great budget laptop

 

Yes, it has an Intel Haswell processor for less than $500, but its surrounding components keep it from being anything more than a budget laptop.

The ; is an inexpensive fourth-generation Core i5 laptop with a nice keyboard, decent weight for its size, and just enough performance to power you through average daily tasks. It has a removable battery, and the hard drive and RAM slots are easily...

The display is decidedly average, its touch-pad buttons are a bit of a pain, and despite having a spot for it, this model does not include an optical drive. Given its processor, battery life may be shorter than expected.

As budget-friendly laptops go, the Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 is a good value with sufficient power for basic tasks, and it doesn't look bad, either.

Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 review

 

The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 puts a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 processor -- a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-4200U, to be exact -- and Intel HD Graphics 4400 into a sub-$500 15.6-inch laptop.

Acer Aspire E1-572-680 review: This budget 15.6-inch laptop is an outstanding value

 

The plastic construction helps keep the weight of this big-screen notebook lighter than some competitors with smaller displays.

Haswell-class CPU ; Bright 15.6-inch display ; Relatively lightweight ; Dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter

No touchscreen ; Lots of flex in the chassis and lid ; Just one USB 3.0 port

You’re not going to get everything in a 15.6-inch notebook priced less than $600. Acer made nearly all the right compromises to get to that price point.

Acer Aspire E1-572-680: Budget 15.6-inch laptop is outstanding value

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Very slow

 

This laptop runs much too slowly. Also I have had problems with the number keys occasionally refusing to function. According to Rejuvenate this is a hardware problem and can be solved by touching either shift key.

Not too expensive

Too slow
