- Great price and performance
- relatively good battery life
- Keyboard and touchpad are very good at this price point
- relatively weak entry level AMD 3200u
- cooling solution is not enough
- only 1 USB 3 port and no card reader
The Acer aspire 5 is a solid budget laptop. While the AMD Ryzen definitely surprises well at this price point, the good keyboard and case make for an unpeatable offer under 500$. The only drawback here is the cooling solution, under normal work load it manages to get through, but it starts to suffer from constant thermal capping when put under constant heavy load.
