Acer Aspire 5 A515-51-50Y5 (NX.GSYEK.004) is a 15.6 inch laptop that made its debut in 2018. It has an quad core i5 processor from the 8th generation and the graphics card is a capable one model Intel UHD 620.
It has a good price and for the money we get a device that not only looks great but has good specs… more on that in the rows that follow.
This Acer Aspire 5 A515-51-50Y5 comes with a very good processor. And about this i5-8250U you should know that’s a quad core model with integrated graphics chip. Because it’s from the 8th generation (named Kaby Lake Refresh) it’s as strong as an i7 from the 7th generation.
The memory is more than enough because we’re talking about 8GB of RAM DDR4 and a big SSD with a capacity of 256GB.
On the OS side it has Windows 10 Home and so we have the best OS on the market.
Portability is more than good because it has a 2.2kg weight and the battery lasts up to 4-5 hours. The battery lasts so long because the RAM is with low voltage, the SSD does not consume too much power and the processor is with low voltaje too.
Has no dedicated (discrete) graphics card. Such a component would have made this laptop perfect for games and demanding video tasks like video editing.
Another minus is that it does not come with an i7 processor, but there are alternatives with it.
Does not come with an ODD (DVD drive), but this can also be considered as a plus because it makes the laptop lighter.
If you’re looking for a good laptop for home or business use than this model would be my recommendation. Also it’s a great desktop replacement with 1080p resolution and an IPS panel (for movies and other tasks that need good colors and viewing angles).
