When it comes to gaming, quality always trumps quantity. It’s better to have a laptop that will perform better instead of one that just looks good. Because of that, the Acer Aspire E15 is a laptop that we’d recommend for people who are tired of boring laptops that don’t play their favorite games.
So sit back and get ready. We are onto our review!
Acer Aspire E 15, 15.6
With dimensions of 10.2 x 15.9 x 1.19 inches, this 5-pound laptop will add a bit of heft in your laptop bag. This increased height gives the laptop increased stability and shock prevention from falls.
The Acer Aspire E 15 has dual stereo speakers that are placed in the front case. Users can crank the speakers to their maximum volume without experiencing distortion. Thus, making it a good laptop to hear your games with its standard sound quality.
When testing its battery power, the Acer Aspire E can run for 7.5 hours on a full charge. If you keep the laptop on its lowest settings (no brightness, no high performance, etc.), then it can last up to 13.5 hours before needing to be recharged.
Inside the device is 4GB of DDR4/2133 RAM. This gives you enough memory space to browse with 10-12 multiple tabs on your computer. Users can remove the 4GB of RAM and upgrade it up to 32GB because of the three screw access panel that’s placed on the bottom of the Aspire’s shell.
You’ll also like the Acer Aspire because it has a generous selection of ports to choose from. On the left, you’ll find a USB 3.0 Port, a USB 3.1-Type C, a gigabit ethernet, and an HDMI port. To the right, you will see a USB 2.0 port that’s near the 8x speed DVD burner. The laptop also sports a 3.5mm audio jack and an SD card reader that’s placed on the front edge.
Acer’s Intel HD Graphics 620 card can be used for basic movie watching and web browsing. This means that you’ll be able to watch video due to the laptop’s Full HD video. With its widescreen display and 1920×1080, HD display shows won’t be a major issue.
Mainly, the Acer Aspire E is a good laptop for those who need a simple tool to watch their HD movies but also can become upgraded. This combo makes it easier for new users to enjoy the laptop while having computer savvy users customize it to their liking. So try this laptop out if you’re in need of a portable tool to take with you on your daily adventures.
