About this deal

The touchpad is offset to the left under the space bar due to the number keys and, thus, not even close to the center of the case. If you use the pad with your right hand, this might be a bit annoying when browsing the web, for example. Furthermore, the hands are also offset to the left when typing, so the distance to the touchpad is short here at least. The size of around 10.5 x 8 cm is absolutely sufficient.

The 14-inch screen only provides 1920x1080 resolution, but it’s bright and clear, with good viewing angles. We’re also pleased to see that it has a matte finish that helps to reduce glare and reflection. The 720p webcam is a bit basic, but the image quality was better than we’d expected - it gets a bit grainy if the light is low, but some decent daylight produces an image that’s sharp enough for video calls. The Aspire’s integrated Iris Xe graphics won’t win any awards either, with 3DMark scores that generally leave it in the ‘less than 20fps’ category. But, to be fair, 3DMark does use very high graphics settings, so if you don’t mind turning the graphics quality down a little you might even be able to get a bit of casual gaming done every now and then. See more and do more with a 16:10 aspect ratio and narrow bezel—choose 14”, 15” or 17” 1080p IPS displays, or step it up with 1440p QHD—all equipped with Acer’s suite of visual technologies for dynamic color and viewing comfort. Make light work of your daily tasks, with a full line-up of features to elevate your day-to-day—like TwinAir Cooling1, a 1080p webcam, an air inlet keyboard, and aluminum cover in multiple vibrant colors1 Even so, that’s not too bad for a low-cost laptop such as this, and if you’re not using wi-fi then the Aspire 5 should give you a full day’s work when you’re on the move.

Acer accommodates 1920x1080 pixels in a 17.3-inch display. This provides a pixel density of 130 ppi, which is sufficient to only be able to identify individual pixels when looking very closely. The IPS panel is matte, which makes the problem with reflections obsolete. Consequently, there are no unwanted reflections from lamps or windows. This also benefits outdoor work, even though the device clearly isn't the best choice in terms of mobility due to its dimensions. The 14-inch or 15.6-inch models are more advisable here. USB Type-C port:USB 3.2 Gen 2 (up to 10 Gbps), DisplayPort over USB-C, Thunderbolt 4, USB charging 5 V; 3 A, DC-in port 20 V; 65 W
