Just because you can't spring for a premium laptop doesn't mean you should settle for less. Meet the Acer Aspire 5: A budget laptop that offers strong Intel Core i3 performance, a bright 15.6-inch display and long battery life -- all for an affordable $399. If you're looking to buy a premium-looking laptop with solid performanace on the cheap, the Aspire 5 is the way to go.
Acer may have the thin-and-light game on lock. With the Predator Triton 500, gamers get a seriously portable system that offers a great mix of graphics and overall power. And thanks to the Turbo option, you can squeeze even more power out of the GPU. In addition to that aggressive svelteness, you get a solid display and a comfortable keyboard.
The Acer Nitro 5 is an ideal option for a casual or entry-level gamer. The notebook is equipped with a powerful 9th Gen i5 CPU, capable GTX 1650 and slick design, all for under $1,000. The laptop runs games remarkably well and stays cool while doing so. We're also impressed with the abundant port selection. This machine's plastic body is a bit chunky, but the 9th Gen Core i5 processor and Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU more than makeup for the chassis.
The Acer Spin 5 has a great display, a comforatble keyboard, and, perhaps most importantly, is relatively affordable. It has Intel's 8th Gen Intel Core i5 CPu, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, so the performance is solid, and the chassis is real metal as opposed to plastic with a coat of paint on it. Those who need a bit more power can get it with a Core i7 CPU.
The 1080p display in the Spin 1 (which starts at $329) proves that budget 2-in-1 notebooks don't need to pack the low-res 1366 x 768-pixel panels they're burdened with all-too-often. The all-metal convertible's also both thin and light, weighing 2.76 pounds and measuring 0.55 inches thick. Its internal specs don't surprise, though, as it packs Pentium or Celeron CPUs and 4GB of RAM.
Acer has entered the premium Chromebook arena in style with the Acer Chromebook 13, which packs powerful Intel U-series performance and a crisp 2256 x 1504 display into a slick aluminum chassis. The Chromebook 13 stays cool and comfortable when juggling a multitude of tasks, and its 8-hour battery life will get you through the workday.
Acer took what it learned from making uber-slim, lightweight laptops and applied it to the Swift 5, creating the lightest 15-inch laptop ever. To hold the 2.2-pound system in your hand is a mind-boggling experience. But the Swift 5 is more than a barely-there chassis, bringing a vibrant 1080p display and solid battery life to the party. You also get a solid performance from the Core i5 CPU and integrated graphics. If you're looking for the ultimate in portability, you'll be hard-pressed to beat the Acer Swift 5.
