No matter if it is light gaming, school work or keeping up with social media the all new Acer Aspire A715-71G-50WU seems to have you well covered. This is a full sized 15.6 inch laptop model that comes with the latest and greatest from Microsoft with the Windows 10 operating system loaded. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides of this model and see just how well it stacks up to the competition.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– When many people first think of a processor they think of the Intel Core i7 but forget about the Intel Core i5. This processor still delivers some great performance and what makes it even better is that it is a little bit more budget friendly. You will find the i5 along with 8 GB of memory in this model which gives it the power to keep up with most users tasks
– Gaming is becoming more and more popular among the average user and this model comes with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. This card isn’t on the same level as what you will find on many gaming laptops but with its 2 GB of dedicated memory can still keep up with most modern games
– Storage space is plentiful on this laptop due to its large 1 TB SATA drive
– One area that performance could have received a nice boost on this setup would have been an addition of a SSD drive instead of the slower SATA. Even though it provides plenty of storage space it is slower to read and write which has an impact on overall performance
– The weight of this laptop is just average as it tips the scales at 2.4 KG so while it isn’t overly big and bulky it isn’t a light design either
– Of the 3 USB ports that are available only one runs on the newer 3.0 technology
The Acer Aspire A715-71G-50WU is a nice mid-range option for those who want to be able to do some gaming on their new device as well.
