Acer has managed to find the perfect balance between power and affordability, let’s learn on this review why the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG laptop is one of the best selling on its category.
If you are looking for a modern mid-level laptop available in 2016, you will be more than glad to know that the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG has all the characteristics you need in a well-rounded laptop with a beautiful design, and all this with a very interesting price tag.
Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG: Overview
If we analyze the main hardware components of this laptop, its Skylake processor probably will be the first good point about this Acer Aspire. The E5-575G-53VG is powered by an i5-6200u Skylake from the sixth generation of processor manufactured by Intel. With a TDP of 15W, the series of U Skylake processors, which the i5-6200u is part, improves the laptop battery life, as the sixth generation of Intel optimizes the processors’ power consumption.
Another interesting fact about the laptop is its GPU. The recently released NVIDIA GeForce 940MX has 2GB of dedicated memory, which will certainly help this laptop to run some heavier software or games better than other mid-level laptops with an integrated video card.
Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG: Pros
This E 15 model is an affordable mid-level laptop with a dedicated video card. It also comes with 256GB SSD which runs faster than the more common HDD, and 256GB is enough space if you don’t work with very large files. It has an incredibly high battery life, allowing you to use it for up to 12 hours without charging (depending on the kind of tasks).
Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG: Cons
Even if this laptop is part of the latest generation of Intel processors and it has a dedicated video card, I wouldn’t recommend it for gaming if this is an activity you expect to enjoy often on your laptop. The i5-6200u is a dual core and it’s benchmark might be not enough if you want to play games like Fallout 4 or The Witcher 3. However for games like League of Legends and similar system requirements this laptop is a good option since it’s affordable and versatile, which is ideal if you are a college student, for example.
