    Una compra excelente desde todos los ángulos, lo primero que hice después de desactivarle el modo wndows home S fué actualizarla y descargar mis apps y juegos, corre el CSGO, witcher 2, Fallout New Vegas y Borderlands 2 sin problemas, el Skyrim se corre en ajustes medios, es una laptop suficiente para jugar fuera de casa, lo siguiente que hice fué abrirla y mi sorpresa fué muy grande al descubrir que tenía espacio para agregarle un SSD extra, le puse un SanDisk de 128 GB que tenía arrumbado por ahí, también noté que la RAM se puede ampliar, me falta comprar un SODIMM de 4GB para mejorarla a 8 GB y ya no pido más, ponerle 16 GB ya me parece un exceso en una laptop que es para juegos ligeros, la verdad se siente fuerte y bien construída, los materiales son de muy buena calidad, el teclado retroiluminado y la tapa de aluminio le dan una apariencia elegante y moderna, el borde de la pantalla es delgadito así que le permite aprovechar muy bien el espacio de la pantalla, ya probé el dual boot con Linux KDE Plasma Neon instalado en el SanDisk SSD, y Windows 10 home en el SSD Western Digital, el dual boot funciona de maravilla, sólo es cuestión de activar en el BIOS la tecla F12 para cambiar el disco duro a la hora del arranque, excelente valor por mi dinero bien ganado.

    Actualizacion: le agregué otro SODIMM de 4 GB marca Hynix que me costó $300 pesos en ML, de fábrica trae un SODIMM Samsung y no tuvo problema alguno, ahora tiene 8 GB de RAM, es una laptop muy rápida tanto con Win 10 home como con Linux KDE Neon, yo la apruebo.

    After several months of using this Acer Aspire A515-45 laptop, I gotta say it’s been an amazing experience. For under $500, you get a really fast, extremely lightweight, and ultra portable laptop.

    Right out of the box and after the setup, this laptop opens everything insanely quick with the help of the SSD that comes with it. I’m coming from another Acer Aspire laptop from a few years ago that had a standard HD so this is a very nice boost, although the big downside is the not-so-big capacity of the hard drive. At only 256gb (which is normal for laptop SSDs I guess), it can’t hold much. Thankfully it comes with a hard drive expansion kit, though it can be a little confusing to use. The possibility is there, but you can also get an external hard drive for that extra space. Even after using more than half of the given hard drive space, this thing still hasn’t slowed down and that’s one of the things I’m really liking about this laptop.

    While we’re still on the topic of speed, the new Ryzen processor on this laptop is pretty quick too. Equipped with a Ryzen 5 5500U quad core processor, it’s a huge boost from the old duo core processor I had on my previous laptop. Though it can’t run games like Fortnite on high or max settings at a consistent 60 fps, bumping down some graphics and sacrificing some quality features on Fortnite would help you achieve the near-consistent 60 fps that would help you get those victory royales. The 8 GB ram that comes with this laptop is also nice and should be a standard among all laptops nowadays. I haven’t opened the laptop yet to see if there are any open additional expansion slots like my previous Acer laptop, but if there are it would be an even bigger plus.

    The keyboard on this Aspire 5 feels great. Typing feels amazing, somewhat comparable to a Macbook and with the grey and black color scheme of this laptop, it even looks kind of like one. The sleek texture of the laptop is satisfying to have your palm rest on while you’re typing up a storm.

    The picture quality is what you’d expect from a laptop in 2022; clear picture, sharp images, great pixels, and all those good stuff. Sound on the other hand though is not so great on this Acer Aspire 5. No matter what position I have it on; laying flat, screen side down with the speakers facing me, elevated a little bit from the surface, the sound isn’t something to be proud of. It feels a little muffled and even pumping the volume to 100%, increasing everything I can to 100%, the sound is still very weak which is a shame because it makes me resort to using my bluetooth devices to get better sound quality.

    Speaking of sound quality, I’ve tried to use my AudioTechnica 2020USB+ microphone on this laptop for work, but at first without knowing, I pluggged it into a USB 3.0 port on the left side and not knowing, the recording quality was very VERY bad. It wasn’t until after playback that I discovered the microphone was incompatible (along with my other microphones) with the USB 3.0 side. Not sure if it’s just my laptop, but thankfully there’s a USB 2.0 port on the right side that works just fine. It took a few days of troubleshooting with Realtek HD audio (which was what I used on my old laptop) to get the sound quality back to standard.

    Let’s talk more about the ports on this laptop. There’s 1 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port (which apparently is rare nowadays on laptops? I know of some people who don’t have HDMI ports on them). There’s a USB-C port and an ethernet port if you’re into being hardwired to your internet. There’s also a tiny port that looks like micro HDMI (is that a thing?) or something looks similar to USB-C but a little smaller.

    I think the last thing to cover before I talk bad about this laptop is the battery which has an amazing life from the beginning. I’ve been able to do some work and play video games for a good 4ish hours before it asks to be plugged in. On normal usage where you’re just browsing or working or not using really process-heavy tasks, you could probably get 7-8 hours on this on a single charge. Charging this laptop is also pretty quick taking 2-3 hours to get it back to full.

    Also something that’s nice that the laptop came with was a webcam privacy protector! And it didn’t have just one, but two protectors! Simply take it out of the tiny bag it came in and stick in on where the webcam is and you can slide it to cover the webcam and block out any FBI people watching you browse TikTok.

    Some qualms I have about this laptop are the function key shortcuts. First of all, by default the function keys are disabled (or enabled, whichever makes it so you have to do extra steps to use them). This means you have to start up your laptop and go to the system menu and enable (or disable) the function keys to make them work as they should. Not sure why this was set as a default, but they’re there and they’re really useful for everything that you do from lowering and turning down brightness, volume control, and putting the laptop to sleep among other functions. Another (personal) problem I have with the volume control is that on my previous laptop, the volume control function keys were on the arrow which makes sense because if you want the volume up or down, you hold the fn key and press up or down on the arrow! On this laptop, it got moved to the F11 and F10 key respectively. Instead, the arrow keys have the pause/play for up and stop for down and the left arrow has back while the right arrow has forward. One last thing about the function key is that while the placement for the brightness makes sense sort of where raising brightness (F4) is to the right of lowering brightness (F3), the icons on those keys don’t make sense! The brightness icons both have a sun, but one is empty in the middle. You’d think that means the brightness is getting lowered as opposed to the icon with the filled in sun, but nope, F3 with the filled in sun means lowering your brightness. Who’d have thought? One last complaint I have about this laptop is the lack of an SD card reader. Maybe this laptop isn’t geared towards people who use SD cards often, but my old Acer laptop that costed under $350 at the time I bought it had pretty much all of what this laptop has and an SD card reader on top of it. Would be nice but not detrimental because I know not many people rely on it, but I figure it’s not hard to add since it can go in front of the laptop where your left wrist is. Also, while it is good the laptop came with a hard drive upgrade kit with screws and drive holder, taking out the underside of this laptop was a pain compared to my previous laptop. This one has ELEVEN screws you NEED to take out in order to access the inside. This is a lot compared to the only THREE screws needed for my previous Acer laptop. Needless to say, this was a huge time sink especially when all the screws were so tight that it took more than a minute to unscrew them.

    All miniscule complaints aside, this is a great laptop in its price bracket. If you’re looking for a really lightweight and quick work station on the go, this laptop is pretty good and I’d recommend this one. It took me a few days of comparing other laptops and this one was my choice.

    Deberás es una laptop muy rapida y fluida, con características de hardware actuales, ya incluye un ssd tipo m.2 y puedes agregar un ssd o Hdd adicional.
    Viene con solo 4gb en ram, nada mal pero si queda un poco justo.
    Agregué un modulo de ram de 8gb que encontre a un muy buen precio ($650) y un hdd que tenía rumbado por casa, ahora mi laptop tiene 12gb en ram y 160gb de almacenamiento extras.

    La pantalla es increible, calidad, colores, resolución, todo.
    El teclado tiene muy buen tacto y viene muy bien la retroiluminación.
    Es delgada y con una tapa en aluminio.

    Al ser un equipo muy bonito, muy rapido, muy barato, que puede fallar? Al desempaquetarlo te das cuenta que tu compra ha valido la pena, pero oh sorpresa, VENIA UN TORNILLO POR DENTRO SUELTO.
    Me percarte de ello con solo moverlo de lado a lado, no sabía que hacer y no queria prender la laptop porque pudiera haber provocado un corto, entramparse en el ventilador o algo.
    Para ello lo bueno que sé de equipos y me anime a desarmarlo (no quería que tener volver a reenviarla y volver a esperar).
    Me encontré con un tornillo suelto que no iba por ningún lado, iba sobrado, conecte el cable de carga y prendio sin problemas…
    Pero ese detalle si me dejo un poco insatisfecho.
    Salir del modo S de Windows es obligatorio para poder utilizar tu equipo como se debe, no es nada complicado.

    En conclusión recomiendo este equipo, solo espero no les toque la mala suerte de que venga con un tornillo suelto, de ser lo contrario daría las 5 estrellitas..

    This looks to be a good laptop at a good price, but be aware that it does not have a UK keyboard. This means you can’t type certain characters, including the pound sign £, and other characters are not where you expect them — for example the @ sign is shift-2 instead of being to the right of L.

    I just bought this laptop and when opening the box, there is no plug or cable with this laptop. I always plug mine in as the battery does not last as long as I need it to.

    This has stopped me from using it in case it stops while I am using it.

    I am waiting for information from the seller. Will update

    UPDATE — There now seems to be a problem with the keyboard, the number 2 key will not change to a @ which means I cannot type in any email addresses. This means most programs I use require an email address I can’t use right now. I have spoken to a few pc experts who gave me advice to update drivers deinstall — reinstall, which all worked. But didn’t fix the problem. They have told me to get it replaced. I am waiting on the company to get back to me. Very disappointed, have wasted so much time trying to sort this. Will update. 5/10/21

    UPDATE — Seller has contacted me to get a plug and cable sent on, seemingly because there is a different plug on the original they need to change it over to a UK plug and cable, they said it would take around two days. Will update.
    25th Oct — update
    Still chasing them for a email sent, no reply.
    I bought this in 29th September, their customer service is terrible.

    They sent me a PC that does not run on a UK keyboard language, but no one tells you that, I spend hours trying to find out why it wouldn’t work, I ended up having to tell the company, who then informed me.

    I got my plug, but they didn’t sent me the adapter, so I still could not use my PC. So I had to ask them again to send the adapter, it was getting very heated, as I had sent them three pictures of what I needed but still they couldn’t work it out, even after I pointed to my old adapter.


    Still I then had to wait for the adapter to arrive.

    I got my adapter and found there was no instructions on how it works. so (not being technical) I struggled to get it set up. I asked them to send me a manual. They don’t do manuals it seems, they sent me a link to open. (remember my old PC is on its last legs, it won’t open files, all I have was email access) So my Last email, was to ask them to download a hard copy and sent it to me, as I have no printer.

    I have not heard from them since. They offered me $30 for compensation after a month of this nightmare. — I will update the last stage of this nightmare.

    well i’m using it to write this review. so there’s that. lol.

    bought this in march of 2020. one thing i never understood is when companies want you to write a review immediately after purchasing an item, and you haven’t even had the opportunity to really use it, or put it through the paces.

    so any review you give would be a false one. cause if the item doesn’t last was it worth it?

    so here we are. almost three years later. and yes it does work.

    one thing that i found rather annoying is that it has nothing on it.

    we live in this world of apps and more. this wasn’t my first computer purchase. so imagine my chagrin when i opened it up to a fully blank screen with zero programs on it.

    we live in a world where these companies are about giving you less and less for more money. akin to going to the hairstylist, they want to charge you extra for washing your hair, which was an part of the package, AND a requirement in getting your hair done.

    the same with this. now they want you to pay for the computer PLUS all of the apps separately. and they call it progress. you’d think with that being the case it would be faster. nope.

    you have to constantly reboot it just to get the web browsers to work properly. as you’re using it the screens will change and fade out on you to safe mode. sometimes it freezes and you don’t know why.

    the constant notifications about microsoft updates are a nuisance.

    does it still work like it did when i bought it? yes it does. but i have to be mindful of programs i attempt to use on it. because i’ll get an error message that there isn’t enough storage to run the programs on the hard drive. smh.

    this claimed to have the ability to use multiple applications and do split screens and more. well you can have the apps up at the same time. but good luck passing back and forth between them. i can’t use anything from the adobe suite. because there’s not enough ram.

    the few programs i loaded on it all have issues of usage and it tells of space and storage issues. «slowing it down» when the apps are open.

    and that microsoft store is not it. that’s the biggest issue of all. you’re pretty confined to the usage of «apps’ that they offer UNLESS you download a whole other program that basically works on top of the microsoft. which is a nuisance and yet another reason to not purchase this.

    if this is the way of life of computer purchases where you have to download a google app just to put programs on a computer that you’ll use. when they USED to work well with and for microsoft years ago… just nope. why should we have to deal with these complications.

    before it was about making a cell phone like a computer. but now they’re trying to make computers like cell phones. and this is one place where it just ain’t premium and not working.

    i hate it. the programs i need and use i can’t take advantage of. the stuff i don’t want or need are here. they’re good for pushing microsoft programs on you. but if you’re in this world you know that microsoft doesn’t excel at all types of needs involving a computer. so be aware when you’re buying this if you purchase it.

    also it’s so old now that i would say it’s not even worth the money they’re charging for it. upgrade yourself and get something that will be worth your money.

    yes they have chromebooks where work from a google mainframe. but they’re no better either. because they don’t allow you to add on whole programs that you may need either. it’s like you can’t seem to win these days when buying a computer.

    just be aware when you’re making a purchase. pay attention to the ram. pay attention to the storage space. the number of usb outlets. those do matter. this has three. and i use them all.

    oh one other thing. last year in 2022 the cord malfunctioned and stopped working to charge it up. so i had to purchase a replacement. which doesn’t even fit well. but it does charge it up. so there’s that i just have to be mindful if i’m plugged in and the new plug doesn’t drop out.

    so yes it still works. the battery life, not so good roughly a good 2-3 hours of usage out of it, even this many years after the fact. but then i rarely use it without the plug, because i’ve found that most laptops don’t work as well without a plug. and all claim to have a long battery life, until you put them to the test.

    not being plugged in you don’t get full usage of the applications as you’d like. everything slows down. something i don’t like. even the web browsers tend to struggle more when it’s not plugged in.

    the sound from the speakers is midrange. not great but not poor. there are things i’d prefer to be louder. but you deal. it’s not a touchscreen. but i didn’t need it to be one.

    i paid $343 for this back in 2020. that it’s now a few dollars more if it were purchased new today, AND IT’S OLD AND OUTDATED says much to me. this thing needs to be way cheaper given what you get and don’t get. it’s basically two steps from being obsolete.

    screen resolution is okay. and to be honest. i bought an acer. cause i’ve purchased from the name brands that charge more and received a mediocre product. so i figured if i were to get something that was not premium, i didn’t want to pay a premium price for it.

    in the end people are going to spend their money how they choose. so if you want it do it. get it. but i wouldn’t.
