Reviews around machine (5.00 of 5)

  • It is an excellent machine for web surfing, document editing and email though
  • At minimum the memory should be upgraded to really make this a great machine, the cheapest upgrade is a single 4GB DDR4-2400 memory stick that would double the memory and enable dial channel operation for a nice performance boost
  • Overall it's a good machine with a lot of potential, just be careful carrying it around because durability is a concern.
  • All in all, for a daily driver laptop that you don't intend to do any heavy gaming on, it's a fantastic little machine.
  • With those two upgrades done, you have a nice machine sitting in front of you, worth quite a bit more than what you'll end up paying for it

Reviews around battery (5.00 of 5)

  • I upgraded mine adding 4GB RAM and swapping the SSD with a 256GB SATA drive (thanks Acer for including the SATA bracket & cable).For the tech saavy: it has the WD SN520 128GB NVMe SSD, QCNFA344A 2x2 ac WiFi, ELAN trackpad w/ Windows Precision Touchpad support, and a 48Wh battery
  • The battery is good, too.
  • I'm assuming the battery can be upgraded to a better one at a later time, since it's easily accessible when the back cover is removed.
  • Battery Saver On and lowest Screen Brightness level
  • I found that the battery is good for almost 3 hours and charges very quickly

Reviews around performance (5.00 of 5)

  • It’s sturdy and has really good performance
  • At minimum the memory should be upgraded to really make this a great machine, the cheapest upgrade is a single 4GB DDR4-2400 memory stick that would double the memory and enable dial channel operation for a nice performance boost
  • This is a decent price and has good performance
  • The zippy performance is more thanks to the SSD Hard Drive than the RAM
  • It works great with Linux as long as you stick with the latest kernels, the stock Debian/buster 4.19 kernel had some issues, but it works perfectly with the 5.2 kernel

Reviews around acer aspire (5.00 of 5)

  • I ordered this Acer Aspire 5 Slim laptop on prime day
  • It works great with Linux as long as you stick with the latest kernels, the stock Debian/buster 4.19 kernel had some issues, but it works perfectly with the 5.2 kernel
  • In my experience, I found that the Acer Aspire 5 FLIES in Ubuntu or any Linux for that matter in comparison with Windows
  • It works great with Linux as long as you stick with the latest kernels, the stock Debian/buster 4.19 kernel had some issues, but it works perfectly with the 5.2 kernel
  • The Acer Aspire 5 A515-43 is a very sleek and modern designed laptop that is able to run everyday tasks smoothly

Reviews around keyboard (4.51 of 5)

  • Start-up was super easy, the back lit keyboard is helpful, and it is fast
  • Start up time and opening/closing programs is impressively fast.- Easy to install software: With a few clicks, you can switch from the pre-installed Windows 10 S (app-only), to Windows 10 Home.- Great peripherals: The keyboard and trackpad are very responsive and comfortable to use
  • Screen brightness is very good.- Keyboard: Backlit is very convenient
  • The keyboard is great, reminds me very much of my dead (expensive paperweight
  • Initially, I wanted a computer that had a 14 inch screen, but am glad I have the extra space now, and the keyboard is easy to adjust to

Reviews around screen (4.37 of 5)

  • The other reviewers were right the screen is awesome
  • Absolutely great hardware considering many budget laptops in the market today ship with horrible TN screens, 30-35Wh batteries, touchpads that lack certain gestures and provide zero configurability, or a lousy cooling system
  • It is sleek, has a big screen and is convenient for my needs
  • However, the beautiful 1080p IPS screen, full keyboard layout, spaciousa and responsive touchpad, USB 3.1 ports and stereo speakers easily cover the basics and then some
  • (32GB should work), upgradable 2280 NVMe SSD, empty 2.5" HDD slot, beautiful screen, gigabit RJ45 port, lightweightCons: not so great battery life, no SD card reader, no USB-C port, cheap speakers, air intake at the bottom

Reviews around price (4.26 of 5)

  • Pros: Great price, upgradable
  • There's nothing too outstanding that this laptop does to really shine above the rest but at the relatively cheap price point ($280 on Prime Day for me), it's hard to go wrong
  • It’s such good quality because I can use this for several years and it matches my needs, like programming and designing and best of all it’s at an affordable and decent price
  • great computer for the price-- great value and easy to set up-- start to finish setting up including printer- 30 minutes.
  • This is a decent price and has good performance

Reviews around computer (4.03 of 5)

  • But I needed something a little more "grown-up" for my graduate school and this is just it!For the price, this computer is absolutely worth every penny (I also read that the RAM is upgradable, I have yet to do it, but I plan to before school starts).
  • Great computer at a great price
  • great computer for the price-- great value and easy to set up-- start to finish setting up including printer- 30 minutes.
  • so I needed a cheap computer for school
  • Overall I would recommend this computer.

  • Absolutely great hardware considering many budget laptops in the market today ship with horrible TN screens, 30-35Wh batteries, touchpads that lack certain gestures and provide zero configurability, or a lousy cooling system
  • While not the sweet spot for Ryzen, it’s not choking the system, either
  • For the lower specs, this system actually feels zippy (fast) to me
  • This system was well worth the price and is a welcome addition to my home computing environment.

Reviews around deal (3.86 of 5)

  • The Prime Day deal on this Acer was too hard to pass up on
  • I got this laptop on prime day for roughly 250ish after using rewards points and deal of the day
  • It works great with Linux as long as you stick with the latest kernels, the stock Debian/buster 4.19 kernel had some issues, but it works perfectly with the 5.2 kernel
  • Got this as a prime day deal at a great price, but it's a nice deal even at the retail price
  • Getting this laptop at only $270 on prime day is an incredible deal and even at the standard price it's worth it

Reviews around quality (3.80 of 5)

  • The screen is super sharp and picture quality is unbelievable
  • The screen is super sharp and picture quality is unbelievable

Reviews around gb (3.34 of 5)

  • I bought another 4gb RAM stick off an auction site for $15 shipped.-110gb of the 128gb is free to use out the box, that remaining 18gb is presumably a recovery partition for Windows
  • The 4 GB total is the bigger issue, as that’s pretty low for today’s standards
  • The 4GB worked fine as long as I didn't load up Chrome with dozens of tabs
  • The laptop comes with a mere 118gb of space so I also recommend buying atleast a 120 gb SSD if you require more space
  • The only drawbacks would be the 4gb of memory (which is expandable) and the fairly limited amount of storage

Reviews around speaker (1.54 of 5)

  • It's good if you want to game in a pinch, I guess.-The speakers suck
  • The speakers are not as loud as I hoped, webcam quality isn't great, and the microphone is decent
  • The speakers are not loud and sound slightly tinny, but overall the laptop has a good hardware set and still RAM and HDD upgradable.
  • It works great with Linux as long as you stick with the latest kernels, the stock Debian/buster 4.19 kernel had some issues, but it works perfectly with the 5.2 kernel

Reviews around drive (1.24 of 5)

  • The zippy performance is more thanks to the SSD Hard Drive than the RAM
  • Overall i am really loving this laptop, it was very affordable, easily upgradeable hard drive and memory, and it is working great.
  • Plus, memory and hard drive space can be easily upgraded for very little cost, making it possible to match the features of more expensive models without the price tag
  • Overall i am really loving this laptop, it was very affordable, easily upgradeable hard drive and memory, and it is working great.
  • Despite being a slim lightweight laptop with a large and bright screen, it is very easy to replace the memory and hard drive, unlike many recent premium laptops that are glued shut with non-removable components
