Reviewed

The Acer Aspire 5 A-515 is a mid-priced 15.6-inch laptop with an Intel i5 processor, so it should make for a decent everyday machine, as long as it can tick our other boxes. Acer models in the past have fallen slightly flat when it comes to sound and the display, so can the Aspire 5 provide the full package? We found out when we took it to the lab.
