Acer Apire 5 A515-52G-53PU – An Affordable Allrounder?

Conclusion

Is the Acer Aspire A515-52G-53PU now a real all-rounder?

In the office, it makes a solid impression thanks to a good display and usable keyboard. Unfortunately, the notebook’s workmanship is on a rather low level.

The Core i5-8265U is potentially well suited for performance-hungry applications. Unfortunately, it is slowed down by the slightly undersized cooling, should the GeForce MX150 be active at the same time. For some applications, such as video editing, it is recommended to upgrade the RAM. Fortunately, Acer allows it to happen.

Casual gamers with low demands will probably be happy with the Aspire 5. Its dedicated graphics card performs significantly better than the Intel UHD 620 integrated in the processor. However, if you also want to play modern, challenging games, you should distance yourself from the Aspire. For such clients Acer has other notebooks on offer.

Finally, the Aspire A515-52G-53PU is an all-rounder. It can be used in any category, but does not perform well in any category. The price-performance ratio is right.
