Our Verdict

A colorful display, long battery life và strong build quality make the Aspire Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM a fantastic value.

You watching: Acer aspire e 15 e5

At 10.2 x 1.5 x 1.2 inches & 5.06 pounds, the E 15 E5-575-33BM is bulky, but it"s not much bigger than other budget 15-inch laptops. TheDell Inspiron 15 5000is heavier (5.2 pounds) but thinner (0.92 inches), while theHPhường Notebook 15-ba009dx(4.6 pounds, 0.96 inches thick) is both thinner và lighter. The 14-inchHãng Asus VivoBook E403SAis a much smaller alternative, at 3.18 pounds và 0.7 inches thiông chồng.

The Aspire"s thiông xã frame leaves plenty of room for both a DVD writer và almostevery conceivable port. The left side houses a full-kích thước Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 connectors, HDMI-out, VGA-out & aUSB Type-C 3.1 portthat"s good for data but that can"t be used khổng lồ charge the máy vi tính. The right side contains the DVD drive, a third USB port và a 3.5mm audio jaông chồng. The front lip offers an SD thẻ reader.

Keyboard và Touchpad: Comfy and accurate

The Acer E 15"s keyboard offers a good typing experience that"s miễn phí from any of the shallowness or flex we find on many budget laptops. The keys provide a full 1.5milimet of vertical travel and require 64 grams of force to actuate, a combination which prevented me from bottoming out as I typed. I reached a strong 100 words. Many users will appreciate the dedicated numeric keypad, which makes using the calculator or editing spreadsheets easier.

The 4.2 x 3-inch buttonless touchpad provides reasonably-accurate navigation around the desktop, but its surface felt a little slippery to me. The pad seemed to have a little trouble with pinch-to-zoom, as it didn"t always respond right away when I performed the gesture in Chrome browser or Windows 10"s pholớn app. Three-finger swiping to lớn switch between apps worked every time.

Display: Surprisingly good

It"s rare that you find a 19đôi mươi x 1080 display on a sub-$400 máy tính, let alone a display that covers this much of the color gamut. The Aspire E 15"s 15.6-inch screen outputs at a sharp 1080p resolution with tones that are vibrant, though not always accurate, and very limited viewing angles. When I watched a trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, the reds and blues in Spidey"s costume popped, but appeared a bit oversaturated.

According khổng lồ our colorimeter, the Acer E 15 can reproduce an impressive 159 percent of the sRGB color gamut, which is well above sầu the 94 percent mainstream máy vi tính average. That showing also trounces competitors in the E 15"s price range, such as the HP Notebook 15 (70 percent), Asus VivoBook E403SA (68 percent) và Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (72 percent).

Unfortunately, the numbers here don"t tell the full story, as the viewing angles were quite narrow. Dark images began inverting at just 45 degrees khổng lồ the left or right.

Don"t try using this laptop in direct sunlight. The Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM registered just 215 nits on our light meter, well below the 276-nit category average but actually better than showings by the Notebook 15 (174 nits) & VivoBook E403SA (201 nits). The Inspiron 15 5000 (213 nits) had a nearly identical score.

Audio: Decent

The Aspire E 15"s speakers offer output that"s quite accurate & loud enough to lớn fill a medium-sized room. When I played Deep Purple"s "Smoke on the Water," I could hear a clear separation of sound amid the drums, vocals and guitar. There was only a hint of tinniness in the high tones.

Performance: Ready for (light) multitasking

With its Core i3-7100U CPU, 4GB of RAM and 1TB 5,400-rpm hard drive, the Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM offers just enough performance for light multitasking. With 12 tabs open in Chrome and a local 1080p Clip playing in another window, I experienced minimal lag when switching between the tabs. However, when one of the tabs was streaming a Clip (in addition to lớn the local video) or downloading a large web page, things slowed down lớn the point that letters I typed in a Google doc didn"t appear until seconds after I hit the keys.

The Aspire E 15 scored a modest 5,408 on Geekbench 4, a synthetic benchmark that measures overall performance. That"s much less than the Chip Core i5-7200U-powered Inspiron 15 5000"s score (6,742), but better than the showing by the HP Notebook 15-ba009dx (3,291) & its AMD A6-7310 CPU.

Acer"s máy tính xách tay took 5 minutes & 14 seconds to complete the Laptop Spreadsheet Macro Test, in which we match trăng tròn,000 names with their addresses. That time is slower than the 4:01 category average và the Inspiron 15 5000"s time of 4:03, but more than twice as quiông chồng as the times from the Pentium N3700-powered Asus VivoBook E403SA (13:31) & the HPhường Notebook 15 (11:40).

The E 15"s 1TB hard drive copied 4.97GB of mixed-truyền thông files at a rate of 36.6 megabytes per second, which is significantly slower than the result for the Inspiron 15 5000 (83.4 MBps) và a bit lower than the HP Notebook 15-ba009dx"s showing (40 MBps), both of which have sầu 5,400-rpm hard drives. The VivoBook E403SA và its eMMC memory did even worse (30.1 MBps).

You can watch full-HD movies on Acer"s máy tính, but don"t think about playing anything more than casual games on it. The E 15"s Hãng sản xuất Intel HD 6đôi mươi GPU managed a mediocre 49,211 on 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, a synthetic graphics test. That mark is well below the Inspiron 15 5000"s score of 60,475 & the category average (86,474). However, the Notebook 15-ba009dx (33,649) & VivoBook E403SA (26,224) scored even lower.

Upgrading: Encouraged

Unlike many manufacturers, who don"t want you khổng lồ touch your laptop"s innards, Acer actually cites the easy-to-remove nâng cấp panel on the bottom as a reason lớn buy this máy vi tính. If you want khổng lồ improve sầu the performance of the E 15 E-575-33BM, you can nâng cấp its RAM và storage drive sầu easily & inexpensively.

Once you take the panel off, you can put up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM inside or swap out the hard drive sầu for any 2.5-inch SATA SSD. The machine comes with only one of its two memory slots filled, so you can pop in an extra 4GB, which costs around $33, for a total of 8GB. A 240GB or 250GB SSD goes for between $90 và $100. When there"s a sale, you can get both components for far less. So, for $480 or less, you can have sầu this máy tính xách tay with an SSD, 8GB of RAM & a 1080p display.

Battery Life: Great for the Size

If you don"t mind carrying the Aspire E 15 around, you"ll really appreciate its long battery life. The máy vi tính lasted 8 hours and 16 minutes on the Laptop Battery Test, which involves continuous surfing over Wi-Fi. That time is an hour và 20 minutes longer than the category average (6:52) và around double the time of the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (4:25) và HPhường Notebook 15 (3:36). The 14-inch VivoBook E403SA (9:02) lasted a bit longer.

Webcam: Too much noise

Even in a market in which most built-in máy tính xách tay webcams take poor pictures, the Aspire"s 720p sensor stands out for all the wrong reasons. When I shot a selfie under the flourescent lights of my office, both my facial features and the background behind me were filled lớn the bryên ổn with extra visual noise. Fine details like the hairs in my beard và the lines on my skin were hard khổng lồ make out.

The E 15 is certified for Skype for business, which means that its microphone, speakers và webcam are guaranteed lớn work with Microsoft"s enterprise-friendly conferencing software. However, given the image unique of the built-in lens, we recommend purchasing an external webcam if you plan to make đoạn Clip calls for work.

Heat: Pretty cool

The Aspire E 15 stayed cool và comfortable to the touch throughout our use. After I streamed 15 minutes of Clip, the touchpad measured 78 degrees Fahrenheit, the keyboard clocked in at 84 degrees and the bottom hit only 85.5 degrees. All of those temperatures are well below our 95-degree comfort threshold.

Configuration Options
