Design

The laptop has a metal lid and there is a brushed texture the keyboard and the lid, which looks really very good. The bezels are narrow and give Acer Aspire 5 Slim A515-52G a modern and attractive look. There are five stickers on the wrist rest and on the frame of the panel and they don’t align to anything as such.

With a lid that folds till 180 degrees, the hinge joint seems a little stiff and it will be tough to open it with one hand.

It has only one  USB 3.0 Type A port, USB type C port, two USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI (video) output, Gigabit Ethernet, one SD-card slot, one 3.5 mm audio socket and there is one Kensington lock slot. The USB port collection seems unsatisfying for a laptop like this. There are vents on the bottom and a heat sink at the back. The motherboard, CPU, copper tubing and fan are visible from the vent that’s placed on the bottom and there might occur dust buildup.

The laptop lacks a good, comfortable keyboard design. It’s very cheap and difficult to use. During typing, adjacent keys sink along as well and the loud crisp sound is frustrating. The trackpad is quite large and it supports multi touch gestures.

Performance

The speakers are placed at the bottom of the laptop and are good. They are loud and the sound quality is good too.

During heavy workload, the laptop fan gets a little loud but it’s not at all distracting. The laptop won’t heat up under heavy tasks. The draft of the fan can be felt on the right hand, even when the fan spins slowly. This can turn out to be annoying while someone types using the keyboard. The keyboard is one drawback in this model. With a fine display and smooth functioning, it is a sleek and portable design but lacks comfortable typing and crisp visuals.
