Full sized laptops are great and when you need to get some serious work done it is hard to argue that they are not the better option but when you are on the go often and need something you can easily take with you it is hard to beat a small compact device such as the Acer Aspire ES1-131-C0B6 (NX.G16EK.013) which we are reviewing today. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see just how well it stacks up and if it might be the right option for your next purchase.
Processor: Intel Celeron
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 32 GB eMMC
Screen: 11.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
As we mentioned above a big bulky laptop can be a pain to drag around all day if you are somebody who is always on the go so the light weight of the Acer Aspire ES1-131-C0B6 (NX.G16EK.013) is going to be a huge improvement in that category. With a total weight of just 1.2 KG it is half the weight of a full sized device making it very easy to take with you on the go.
This model from Acer is not just light on weight but light on the wallet as well, having a price tag that is affordable for even those on a very strict budget. Even if you already have a full sized laptop that you do work on this device is so affordable that you can easily justify the expense just for having a second device to take with you when your on the go.
Even with its smaller design your still going to find most of the options that you expect in a newer laptop model such as 2 USB ports with one of these also running on the newer and much faster 3.0 technology.
Before you start thinking that the Acer Aspire ES1-131-C0B6 (NX.G16EK.013) is the ultimate portable device, While it is true it is hard beat the slim and light design it surprisingly disappoints in the battery department. With just 5.5 hours of battery life it is hard to get a full days use out of it and will have you quickly looking for a power source while on the go which isn’t always an easy task.
This is to be expected with any budget friendly device but just in case you were expecting performance comparable to a full sized model we feel it necessary to include. This device comes with a lower end processor and limited memory so while it is very convenient it may not be practical for users who need to run resource intensive applications and is better used for light day to day use such as browsing the internet and emails.
If you need a low cost device, that is easy to take on the go and having top end performance is not a must then the Acer Aspire ES1-131-C0B6 (NX.G16EK.013) should be high on your list of options when browsing for your next laptop purchase.
