Acer Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM Notebook Review

 

A good "Start". A good "Start". Acer's entry-level office laptop with the somewhat bulky name Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM can score with a long battery life and useful keyboard among other things. However, is that enough to prevail over the multitude...

Windows 8.1 included, Robust, matte surfaces, Decent keyboard, Full-sized number pad, Large touchpad, Cool surfaces, CPU's good Turbo utilization, Quiet operating noise, Long battery life, 24-month warranty, Matte, sufficiently bright screen

with low resolution and poor viewing angle stability, Touchpad's sensitivity & fitting, GPU's Turbo not fully utilized, High CPU/GPU temperatures in the stress test, No maintenance cover

Acer's ES1-512 is a decent entry-level laptop with a good price-performance ratio. The matte screen with its sufficient brightness, the useful input devices and the long battery life facilitate routine office use. Robust surfaces that remain agreeably...

The Best Cheap Laptop Under $250

 

The $250 Aspire E 15 (ES1-512-C9Y5) is my default pick because it's one of the few $250 laptops that comes with 4GB of RAM. This alone meant it outperformed all the other cheap laptops I tried. The E 15 didn't choke when I taxed it with up to 20...

Acer Aspire ES1-512 review

 

This notebook offers a great combination of features

The price ; Impressive battery life ; A good bunch of components bar the processor ; Has an optical disc drive

Feeble processing power ; Non-removable battery ; A lot of bloatware ; Annoying screen glare

The Acer Aspire ES1-512 shows that you can actually get more than you bargained for, especially if you manage to purchase this machine during flash sales.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good product!

 

fast little computer. came in great condition and fast shipping. everything works and was completely wiped. lots of space and storage to keep music or pictures which is exactly what I wanted.

- keyboard doesn't light up (not too big of an issue for myself but for others) - no disc drive. looks like there is one but there isn't.

Acer ES1-512-C88M

 

This laptop used to cost $250, and for $250 it was the best laptop I ever bought, I was going to buy another one, but seeing now that the price is $500 makes it not worth it at all.

Acer ES1-512-C88M

 

Make sure to delete the bloatware that comes preloaded, also make sure you are only running needed applications by pressing CTL+ALT+DELETE then closing out unneeded programs that dont need to be running.

Sleek, works great, great for Business ; Love that the HDMI/ USB/ Audio ports are located on the back of the laptop

Windows 8.1 is lame, so I downloaded Classic Start Menu addon from online

No good if we can't use it

 

Windows 8.1 is very bad news. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 should be strictly outlawed. Most people don't know how to use Windows 8 or 8.1 and it is too dissimilar to what most people are familiar with and not user friendly at all.

There are no pros at all. We can't get it to operate at all because the computer came with no instruction manual

Computer came with no instruction manual. This is inexcusable. We can't use the computer because there are no step by step instructions telling us how to use it. Windows 8.1 is extremely dissimilar to Windows 7 and is very hard to use
