The new Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-35SE has lots of expectations, coming in the backdrop of a predecessor that was a fantastic budget laptop around, evening owning a spot on our Editors' Choice. With most people working from home and college students resigned to online classes and assignments, there's a need for excellent, affordable laptops.
With the new Acer Aspire 5 line, your expectations may rise as you see these new systems pack either 10th Gen intel CPUs and a few with AMD Ryzen chips. All that while, the Aspire A515-55-35SE is a good deal if all you need is a new laptop - though, a few quirks may be hard to ignore - particularly a not-so-bright display.
That being said, it manages to check most boxes for a basic notebook, including stable daily-use performance and robust port selection. However, as this Acer Aspire 5 review will reveal, once the world is back to normal, and with newer 11th Gen chips in the market, this might not be the first model you grab off the shelves.
The Acer Aspire 5 is plain, with an aluminum lid, which is rare at this price range. And, if you wanted a laptop that's super-slim, the A515-55-35SE isn't. It measures 0.71 inches at its thickest point, but at the very least, this laptop is easily upgradable with an easily accessible motherboard. Altogether, the package weighs under 4 pounds, light enough for lagging around the house, but heavy to tote though a day in college.
Port selection is excellent. For your peripherals, you're getting three USB-A ports and a single USB-C port for your modern devices. There's also an Ethernet port for hardwiring, and HDMI port for an external display, a Kensington Lock connector and a standard headphone jack.
Nowadays, a 1080p display is pretty standard on budget laptops, and the 15.6-inch display keeps that tradition. It will get the work done, though the matte screen sometimes catches a glare from external light. It averages 259 nits, is a bit dim, but is brighter than competing models - the Asus VivoBook 15 and Lenovo Yoga C740, with 247 nits and 251 nits, respectively.
Nevertheless, the screen is fine for working at night-time work, but very bright light may make the Aspire 5 screen a bit uncomfortable. The screen's color saturation is more intense, and helps boost the vibrancy of dull scenes. You'll enjoy watching movies and surfing the web on the Acer Aspire 5, but if you're looking at photo editing and media creation, you might need an external monitor with better color reproduction.
The Aspire 5's chiclet keyboard is full-size, has a number pad on the right side for seamless data entry. The keyboard is comfortable enough for typing, and going by the massive build, small hands will find this keyboard even more comfortable for multitasking.
For the touchpad, Acer strives to give the trackpad the same aluminum finish as the chassis. There's a fingerprint reader embedded into the touchpad, but you might have to turn off the multitouch gestures, as the touch-drag-mechanism can be too fussy to use. Surprisingly, there's a Function key that turns off the trackpad, especially when you're in serious typing sessions.
