The Aspire ES1-522-449L is a budget friendly option offered by Acer which is powered by the AMD A4 processor making it one of the few that have moved away from Intel when it comes to powering a laptop.
While Intel may have the majority of the market share there is no reason to avoid AMD as they have been in the market for a very long time and also provide a very well performing and reliable processor which also tends to run cheaper.

It is all about saving some money with the Acer Aspire ES1-522-449L and this is something it does quite well but cutting corners where it can or choosing a more budget friendly option in hardware such as the choice to go with an AMD over an Intel.
For those in the market that are looking to save a few dollars this Aspire can give you just what you are looking for.
The very large and spacious hard drive offers 1 TB of storage which translates into 1000 GB meaning that even the most heaviest of file savers should find that it can meet their needs.
5.5 hours of battery life is rare among low cost laptops but that is exactly what is provided by this Acer Aspire meaning you should have no trouble finding enough time to do what you need between power ups.
Yes AMD is a very capable processor but Acer has went with one of the lower models to power this laptop. When you combine that with the fact they have only packed in 4 GB of memory in to it, your left with a laptop that may struggle.
With resource intensive activity and will leave some users who are looking to do more then just the basics disappointed with the overall performance.
No touchscreen, No backlit keyboard and no numeric keyboard are just a few of the nice to have features that are missing from this edition. I guess it can be said what do you expect from a low cost budget friendly option.
But there are other options close to this price range that offer some or all of these nice to haves.
Still a solid entry on the list of budget friendly laptop options that should be considered but for some who expect to be using it for some heavy tasks may want to consider something with a little more power under the hood that will not leave them disappointed after making the purchase.
