Chances are you are a high school or college student looking for a new laptop on a budget that will get you through the next 4 years. You have many many choices these days. When I was in your situation, the least expensive laptops were all pushing at least a grand and they weighed a ton or ran really hot. This Acer ES15 isn't that much different from an Asus or Dell of comparable specs.
The ES15 is just over 5 pounds, with chiclet keys. The keyboard feels very stout and robust. The screen is acceptable, it won't be winning any awards for display quality. The touchpad is huge and my left palm keeps touching it. However, the ES15 is packed to the brim with features you will help you out: 802.11ac dual-band WiFi card, Ethernet port, HDMI port, SD lot, 1x USB 3.0 port, 2x USB 2.0 ports, and an optical drive. The included hard drive is 1TB and it only comes with 4GB of DDR3L RAM. I popped the bottom panel and found that there are 2 SODIMM slots, only 1 is filled with a 4GB stick. That means you can go out and buy a 16GB (8GBx2) kit and max out the RAM really cheaply. The hard drive is also easily swapped out next to the memory slots.
The cool thing about the Core i3 processor is that it is underrated. It runs almost ice cold, barely kicking on the fan, while the integrated graphics will be more than enough to watch movies and finish homework assignments.
The included Windows 10 operating system is standard fare, and while it includes Office 2016, you will need a product key for registration.
Overall: 5/5 stars, for a budget laptop - this is quite nice. RAM and hard drive are easily accessed for future upgrades.
Having said all the downsides, I would say this is a well made basic laptop with good design and looks. For very basic tasks such as web surfing, video playback, on demand videos, and word processing this is quite enough for many. Acer is a top Taiwanese company with other brands as well in its portfolio including Gateway and Packard Bell.
However, once again, for slightly more the next level up in the Acer line is considerably better value, overall and worth a thought.
Secondly, two years into owning this product, the hinge broke. All I have repeatedly done is open and close the lid as I normally do. There was no reason for that to happen. It broke without warning after two years - no looseness or sign of tear in the plastic, etc.
Thirdly, and this may partly be my not being observant of the specifications. The specifications for this laptop is 4GB RAM. I installed two 8GB RAM and this is why it was lightning fast. If you are buying this as a base model, be warned that Windows 10 will run poorly on less than 8 gigs of RAM; and if you plan on running light games or large excel files, I would recommend a minimum of 16 GB Ram for Windows 10. Do not get me wrong, Windows 10 is a great system, but it is too taxing on a system, which is why it needs a good processor and sufficient RAM to run well.
Speaking of processors, it brings me to my fourth point. If you are buying this now - it is not worth $449. Two processor cores and 4GB RAM? At least spend your money on a newer model. Here is a tip, if you want a decent quality laptop, be willing to spend at least $700 or more.
Finally, watch the news: Acer is experiencing severe financial struggles. I do not have much hope for this company lasting very long. This should make you question their future customer service.
So, my great experience with Acer is at an end. Somewhat disappointed but not too disappointed because I bought it a discounted price and already had spare RAM to increase my memory. But if I had paid full price without sufficient RAM, I would have been furious with this.
I have left my old review below, but it is now outdated. PLEASE IGNORE!
I have always had a great experience with Acer. This one is no different. For my use, it does what I want and fast. I had two spare 8 gb RAM, which I used to expand the memory to 16 gb. The boot up time is amazingly fast - it is hardly 10 seconds, if that. I like its simple appearance too. And for a 15.5 inch screen, it is amazingly lightweight and has a numerical pad (useful for you accountants).
Be warned - don't use it for heavy duty gaming. This is not a gaming laptop. It is very fast and you should be able to accomplish a lot of multimedia tasks with this. But, that is not to say you run wild with high resolution games. Low key games are fine. But, I would not advise anything more than that.
I know there are a lot of PC/Windows 10 haters out there. But Windows 10 really has improved a lot from 8, 8.1, and the original 10 version. It functions smoothly and I have encountered no issues. I would say that you not listen to the blind criticisms of Windows 10. It's good.
This has been a reaffirmation of my trust in Acer. Their computers have so far not only not disappointed me but they have been a pleasure to use. I am glad I made the decision to choose Acer again over the other brands out there. The only other brand I personally trust is HP. But that is a different story.
As a major plus this didn't come with any bloatware that you will get with HP laptops and other manufacturers. It's my fist Acer, but for under $300 I think it is a solid laptop that most people would be happy with.
