if you are looking for a mid-range laptop with above average graphics then you might want to check out the all new Acer Aspire E5-575G-55NW which comes with some generous specs along with a decent graphics card that easily beats out some of the basic chip sets that are seen in many of the mid-range options. Below we will review some of the benefits and downsides to this Aspire model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i5-7200U
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inch Non-Touchscreen
OS: Windows 10
The Acer Aspire E5-575G-55NW does a nice job of giving most consumers more performance then they could possibly need with potentially only the highest end and demanding consumers finding there isn’t quite enough horsepower. The Intel Core i5 may not be the top of the line available but it isn’t too far off and when backed with 8 GB of memory you are left with a laptop that will easily handle just about anybodies demands.
We see plenty of budget models and even a large percent of mid-range options sneaking by with the very basics in graphic display options to help keep the price down but this Aspire instead comes with an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics chip set that includes 2 GB of dedicated memory meaning it is ready to handle gaming, video streams and high-resolution movie content.
Acer has swapped out the traditional SATA drive for something a little better performing and that would be a 256 GB SSD. That helps improve on the already adequate performance so you can get every last ounce of power out of this model.
The 15.6 inch display on the Acer Aspire E5-575G-55NW while great especially since it is backed by decent graphics lacks one of the newer nice to have features which is touchscreen. There are plenty of consumers who have made the switch over to this technology over the last couple of years and would find it difficult to switch back to a laptop model that lacks it.
We love SSD as an option for storage and would always recommend one over a SATA due to its increased performance but consumers do need to be aware that the storage capacity takes a big drop due to this with the average SSD having about one fourth of the space you will see in a SATA.
It is hard to not be impressed with the Acer Aspire E5-575G-55NW as it has plenty of great features without any serious drawbacks. If touchscreen is not high on your list of options then you should take a serious look at this model for your next buy.
