The Acer Aspire 5 (A515-44-R93G) comes out to be a complete package at a reasonably affordable price point. This is one of the laptops that serves a high value-for-money package deal. From its build & design to its performance, there is nothing to complain about the laptop.
Design and Display
With a polycarbonate build and an aluminum metal top lid, the laptop has managed to provide a pretty solid build. The laptop weighs less than 4lbs and hence can be called a pretty mobile machine. The dimensions of the laptop measure 9.9 x 0.71 x 14.3-inches and can be carried in your backpack.
The laptop display measures 15.6-inches, and this is one of the largest screen sizes available on laptops. Along with the large screen size, the display’s resolution also sits at Full HD, i.e., 1920×1080 pixels. Looking at this, the display of the laptop has enough room and crispness to serve a nice viewing experience. Coming to the color and saturation, the laptop’s display panel is IPS and hence is reasonably color accurate and along with eye-pleasing color saturation and brightness.
The primary thing is the processor, and this laptop comes with a quad-core AMD Ryzen 3 4300U mobile processor. Alongside 4 cores, there are further 4 threads and hence is the processor is capable of quite heavy multi-threaded performance. It is clocked at 2.7GHz of base clock speed and can be boosted up to 3.7GHz.
Since this is a mobile processor, it comes with pretty decent integrated graphics. There is the AMD Radeon RX Vega 5 integrated GPU embedded in it. It is a 5-core GPU with 1.45GHz of speed and hence can impart an awe-inspiring mid-range GPU performance to the laptop.
The memory and storage of the laptop also matter a lot in multitasking and smooth performance. And as for this laptop, there is 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 128GB of SSD storage. This may seem a little less to many laptop users, and hence Acer has also provided to expand the RAM capacity and SSD storage via empty slots.
Keyboard and Touchpad
Many of the laptop makers ditch the backlit feature in their laptop keyboards at this price. But Acer has managed to deliver the Aspire 5 with a full-size laptop keyboard, including the num pad, with a complete backlit experience. The key pressing feedback is pretty responsive along with decent key travel, making it an easy-to-type-on laptop keyboard.
As for the trackpad, the size is decent and also houses a fingerprint sensor for security. There is multi-gesture support in the trackpad and relies on the Windows Precision Drivers for gesture support.
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R93G laptop comes with a 3-cell Lithium-Ion battery with a capacity of 48Whrs. And as per Acer’s claim, the laptop can go up to hit 10hours of battery backup on a single complete charge. But not believing in these lab-tested claims, you can assume it to hold a minimum of 5-6 hours of real-life usage juice.
Ports & Connectivity
Coming to the set of wireless and physical connectivity options, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R93G comes with Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE 802.11 ac/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 5.0 as the wireless connectivity options.
