FEMALE’s 2019 Car & Gadget Awards
Best 15″ Laptop – Acer Aspire 5
Built to go far
At only 17.9mm thick and weighing 1.8kg for a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display laptop, this device will serve as the perfect portable companion for those who are constantly on the move yet still prefer the versatility of a traditional notebook to a tablet. While the current Aspire 5 comes with significant upgrades compared to its predecessor (i.e. slimmer bezels for better viewing, Windows Precision Touchpad for faster response as well as the addition of Acer Colour Intelligence and Acer TrueHarmony technology features), the battery life of up to seven hours remains.
Best of both worlds
The Aspire 5’s premium aluminium alloy cover stands out thanks to its stunning metal texture and exquisite hairline brushed pattern design (that’s simultaneously anti-fingerprint) – making its design look clean, simple and stylish. What’s more, next-level productivity is ensured as the laptop is certified by Microsoft’s enterprise-friendly conferencing software, Skype for Business and is compatible with the Cortana personal digital assistant that gives its users the freedom of using voice control. However, don’t let its appearance and practical functions fool you into thinking that it’s only meant for an office setting because the Aspire 5 also serves as a smooth multimedia machine during your downtime.
Bang for your buck
Available in a multitude of configurations with up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the Acer Aspire 5 delivers an excellent all-round user experience considering its affordable price tag. Another highlight of this lightweight laptop we love? The added boost of up to 4X faster performance that the NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics card provides for all our gaming needs! #Score With that in mind, the integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi wireless technology and strategic antenna placement are still the cherries on top for us as they prove to be useful features in this day and age where connection is just as important as oxygen.
