Acer Aspire 5 provides average specs in its category for a fairly cheap price. It is equipped with the new Intel 10th generation i5; this is really unexpected at this price point for a laptop given it is also powerful in every other aspect.
It is a bit heavy (3.97lbs+) but the main reason is 15.6” display. If you have no problem with carrying it, this is not a downside but a preference. 15.6” screen size has its own perks. Full HD 1920 x 1080 is enough for a clear visual experience especially when it is combined with IPS screen Aspire 5 has.
Acer emphasis on wi-fi 6 technology they added on this laptop. It helps connectivity performance at device dense areas. If you take your laptop out, you will use it where lots of other people are connected to same network with their laptops, smartphones and tablets. So Dual band wi-fi 6 (802.11ax) will prove useful.
Display size is not only upside that compensates heavy weight of Acer Aspire 5. It has up to 9.5 hours of battery life which is more than you needed for your daily schedule.
Acer also focused on practical features for this laptop, such as backlit keyboard and fingerprint reader. All these features and specs make Acer Aspire 5 a perfect budget laptop.
