Acer Aspire E 17 E5-773G-5464 Specs
The 17.3-inch Full HD Comfy View LED-backlit display comes with a resolution of 1080p. This is a pretty good resolution as the screen size is a bit big in this case. The display has a native aspect ratio of 16:9 that makes it perfect for consuming media like movies, TV shows, videos shot on the smartphone, and much more. If you are someone who shoots for productivity, then this widescreen has you covered. You can run applications side by side on this big screen and get more done quickly.
The processor that runs this Acer Aspire E 17 E5-773G-5464 laptop is an Intel Core i5 6200U chip. This is a dual-core processor that is based on the Skylake architecture. It clocks at 2.3GHz and can do even better when there is a need for more power.
This processor brings enough power to make your everyday routine smooth. You can do some system intensive tasks like editing videos, running simulators, developing & compiling codes, and much more.
There are 8 gigs of DDR3L SD RAM to help the cause. It is slightly disappointing that Acer has used DDR3L memory as opposed to DDR4 which is supported by Skylake chips. However, the memory department is well equipped to carry on with your everyday work.
You can run multiple applications at the same time and multitask your heart out. This memory will also come in handy when you are playing games, be it light or serious ones.
Talking about games, this Acer Aspire E 17 E5-773G-5464 laptop has a Nvidia GeForce GTX 940M graphics card as the GPU here. It has 2GB of dedicated memory which is perfect for some neat gaming. You can run most of the recent games without any problem. Running them at their highest settings might still not be possible, but you can run them fine if you reduce the settings a bit.
If you are into multiplayer games like DOTA, WoW, and LoL, then this graphics card will give you an excellent experience. The GPU also makes graphics rendering fine which is excellent when you are using software that relies heavily on the GPU.
The weakest link on the spec sheet here is the hard drive. Here, we have a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive that gives you a lot of space to have fun. But the problem here is that it is pretty slow by modern day standards. If you are fine with this speed, then there won’t be any issues.
If you are not, then, we recommend you to upgrade to a solid state drive. This will improve the bootup speed, the time taken to open the apps, and also the overall performance.
Acer tells us that we can get around 5 hours of battery life from this notebook. It is very much possible with light usage. When you are doing something heavier like work or playing games, battery life may not be as good.
The Acer Aspire E 17 E5-773G-5464 has support for both 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. There are 2 USB 3.0 ports of which one is used for power-off charging. This means you can charge your phones and other devices even when the laptop is off. There are 2 USB 2.0 ports and a media card reader which should come in pretty handy.
There is also an HDMI port that should be useful when you need to connect your laptop with an high-end device like an HD display. The DVD Super multi double layer drive should also be useful for a lot of people.
