    • Acer Aspire i5 outperforms expectations

      from Toronto on September 11, 2019

      Having set up and used several laptops for members of my family, I was expecting weak all-around performance compared to my custom-built desktop in spite of it being almost 7 years old. I discovered how wrong I was. This Core i5-8265U/256GB SSD/8GB RAM/Windows 10 machine boots incredibly quickly and generally performs well, although I don't use any CPU-intensive applications. Wi-Fi is quick at almost 200Mbps on my 150Mbps connection (the same as my desktop ethernet). I was concerned that the SSD would be too small for my needs (he desktop has 2 750GB hard drives), but so far that's not an issue and I can always use an external drive. The memory at 8GB is more than sufficient. Getting used to a touchpad has been my biggest difficulty, but I have a wireless mouse to use when I have a hard surface to work on. I would highly recommend this laptop.

    • A decent computer for the price

      from Winnipeg on September 7, 2019

      -quad core, w/turbo to 3.9 ghz -2 dimm slots, each of which can take a 16 gb sodimm -up to 2 Tb ssd (m.2 or 9.7mm) -fingerprint scanner works and is unobtrusive Cons; a LOT of garbage preinstalled, most of which is useless. Out of the box, a LOT of updates, including W10 1903.
