The laptop comes in charcoal black. This isn’t black but more of a darker shade of grey. The textured polish of the lid gives it a nice look. The insides are normal with the black keyboard. The keys are well spaced and there is also a dedicated number pad.
The power button is so close to other keys so if aren’t careful you are going to get annoyed. The trackpad is standard stuff and nothing special. At 5.3 pounds, you can call this laptop a travel companion. With a decent battery life, you can easily take this out when you are traveling.
Acer Aspire E 15 E5-573G-57HR Specs
Here, we have a 15.6-inch full HD widescreen comfy view LED-backlit display that comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The native aspect ratio of this display is 16:9 which makes it more suitable for media consumption.
The display has a matte finish which helps to prevent glares in most of the occasions. It isn’t perfect, but that still helps. With a widescreen display, you can easily do more at the same time. This display can guarantee for both your productivity and entertainment.
The Acer Aspire E 15 E5-573G-57HR laptop is run with the help of an Intel core i5 processor. This i5 5200 is a 5th gen Broadwell-based chip that comes with a clocking frequency of 2.2GHz. With Intel’s turbo boost, the clocking speed can be increased up to 2.7GHz depending on the need.
This is the probably the best option in a mid-range device in the recent times. It gives you the power you need to run any application you want. Even system-intensives tasks can be done without any performance hiccups. With very good benchmark results, this processor can be of great use to your needs.
You also have the option to go for an i7 chip which, obviously, will result in a price bump.
There are 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM as memory. This is a good memory for a mid-range device. It allows your multitask and do more at the same time. Running multithreaded applications is a lot easier, thanks to Intel’s hyperthreading technology.
The graphics card in the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-573G-57HR is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 940M with a dedicated memory of 2GB. This is a very good graphics card for a mid-range notebook and the performance is way better than that of an integrated GPU.
You can run some of the latest titles with very good frame rates. For running the latest and the greatest games, we recommend reducing the settings to get a playable frame rate. Simply put, you can play any game you want.
The hard drive storage capacity is 1TB. There is ample storage to play with and you can load anything without any restriction. The operating speed, however, is only 5400RPM. Though an average user won’t be able to tell the difference, they still could have included a solid state drive.
The operating system you get pre-installed here is Windows 8.1. This is a very good operating system for those who are used to the tiles. But Windows 10 is here and you can upgrade to it for free for the first year. With all the raving reviews, this new OS is definitely worth an upgrade.
There are 2 inbuilt speakers. Acer’s true harmony high-performance sound system does a good job. The output is decent and you can go with it if you are not an audiophile.
With a 5-hour battery life in place, you can take this out for a decent amount of time. If you are going to stay the whole day out, then be sure to find a power outlet.
The connectivity in this Acer Aspire E 15 E5-573G-57HR model consists of a Bluetooth 4.0 and an 802.11a/c wireless connectivity. There are a couple of USB 3.0 ports out of which one support power-off charging. There is also a single USB 2.0 port and also a media card reader.
