The Acer Aspire E 15 seem becoming the company’s number one system in low end market as the product is becoming popular and sensational for now. I have reviewed the older version and having a very good time there. Acer probably knows that many users would expect of much cheaper model here and for this case they finally announce a new model for it which equipped with Intel I3 from 8th generation processor. Well, the Core I3 processor is not so powerful and very common, but keep in mind the thing makes special here is the pricing. It costs you not more than 400 dollars and you will get of pretty much powerful configuration.
Many of similar competitors will offer you only a Celeron processor, but you have a Core series processor here. The rest specification is not a big matter as you soon see of 6GB RAM, and 1TB HDD. I think its worth for us to take look inside and see how it works on us. That is what we are going to talk about here. Without further ado, let’s we jump into the article.
Case and Connectivity
For this review, I get the design with black model which looks not impressive, but incredibly solid in build quality. The overall look is pretty standard for budget machine, so do not expect for something wonderful here. The entire chassis itself is created from plastic and covered in brushed metal finishing. What I love here, Acer adds of easy access for accessing the RAM and the hard drive for users on upgrading the component without forcing them to open the entire chassis. The battery is however not replaceable and means you have to bring to the service centre for replacing it. The overall experience I am getting here is wonderful especially considering the price range itself.
Not surprising thing also not found in term of connectivity, but Acer is good enough to include of USB type-C here in case you want faster connectivity here. There two USB standard ports which cover single USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. A single USB-C then appears as the companion and provides a much faster and reliable way on transferring the data. The ports positioning are great and most of them placed at rear sides. Well, Acer once again is giving impressive things here.back to menu ↑
Display and Input
While the scree is not appeared as the brightest and most detail one, the full HD 15.6 inch panel is better than most of its competitors. It covers of 57 percent SRGB color and getting 236 nits. The color accuracy is crisper and details enough, but sadly the brightness is lower than my expectation here. 235 nits is suitable for indoor usage, but sadly for outdoor usage you need of extra care here for adjusting the brightness. Putting it on highest level is recommended here. Keep in mind; this is a under 400 dollars laptop, so I could not make a big complaint here.
As for the input, they give us a full size keyboard with non-backlit support. The entire keys are created in concaved, but unfortunately the numpad keys are flat for some reasons. The inconsistent on keyboard is appeared here, but thankfully feels decent enough for long usage. The feedback for each pressure is impressive, but the keys are not well spaced. It takes couple tried to get used here before getting our maximum experience. Acer is not well known on making a good keyboard and the thing is shown here.
|Acer Aspire E 15 E5 576 392H||Main Specs|
|CPU||Intel Core I3-8130U 2.2 GHz|
|Graphics||Intel HD Integrated Card|
|OS||Windows 10 Home|
|Memory||6GB DDR3 Memory|
Performance and Battery
The Intel I3 8130U processor is featured and looks very interesting because not much manufactures want to use it for matter of price I think. The processor itself is clocked at 2.2 GHz clock and having 3.4 GHz maximum for boosted clock. The performance is fast and impressive here and should probably comparable with Core I5 7260U from last generation. The processor then combined with 1TB HDD and 6GB RAM that I think good enough for daily usage. The system is able to maintain the performance on handling the light task like editing document and doing simple photo editing on Photoshop. Like I said before, the performance is not highest as the I5 or I7 version, but better than Celeron processor available in most laptops right now.
Moving into its battery life, Acer promises of up to 13.5 hours battery life, but what I get here is only around 7 to 8 hours of usage. I do not really know their method for checking the battery life. 8 hours is however is pretty good amount of time for finishing everything in single day without forcing you to charge it over and over again. The USB type-C is not capable for charging the battery, so bringing the charger is necessary in case you want more battery here.back to menu ↑
There is no surprising that the Aspire E15 is becoming so popular right now because the system really offers of specification better than its price. Seeing Core series processor for around 400 dollars is very rarely and the thing is more impressive with long lasting a battery and making it as perfect choice for low budget users. The design is very standard, but at least won’t make you shame at all on carrying it around. The choice is yours, so feel free to take any consideration here.
