Acer Aspire E5-511 detailed review

Acer's Aspire E5-511 is a full-on budget laptop that both excites and underwhelms. For a 15-inch laptop, the laptop is too plain jane with a dark gray look, and its screen (despite being matte) has a slight glossy surface which leaves fingerprint smudges. Beyond aesthetics, the laptop is built well, and it shows while handling it.
 
The laptop has a nice chiclet-styled keyboard which is a pleasure to type on, and the dedicated number pad is definitely an added  bonus. But its single slab touchpad takes time getting used to - there are no separate mouse buttons to click assuredly either, which is a pity. The laptop has a 720p HD webcam for pretty good video chats, apart from nice onboard audio.
 
While the Aspire E5-511 doesn't glitter in terms of its performance - after all it comes with a Pentium processor - it does enough to keep basic users happy. Watching YouTube videos, listening to music, working on productivity apps, and nothing more. Its optical drive comes with M-Disc technology, which claims to offer great data longevity on supported media. But hands down the Aspire E-511's greatest feature is its stunning battery life, which lasted over 6 hours in benchmarks. That's head and shoulders above many of its more  expensive competitors. For this trait alone, the Aspire E5-11 is worth considering.
