Some information about the acer aspire E1 Series
The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 puts a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 processor — a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-4200U, to be exact — and Intel HD Graphics 4400 into a sub-$500 15.6-inch laptop.
The CPU and integrated graphics combo has shown up in more than a few expensive ultrabooks we’ve tested, and has turned in very good performance and excellent battery life. This E1 is the least expensive laptop we’ve seen to feature them, though, which is what makes it a bit more attractive to those who have an aversion to older components.
The fact is, to use the newer processor, other corners have to be cut to keep the price low. In this case it seems the processor is surrounded by less power-efficient components and in a chassis that feels like a budget laptop.
On the upside, it doesn’t necessarily look like a budget laptop. With just a simple silver Acer logo on top, the plain all-black body blends right in at the coffee shop, lecture hall, or conference room. It is all plastic, though, and there’s noticeable flex on the lid and keyboard deck, so it’s nothing you can be too rough with.
The plastic does keep it lightweight, though: it weighs just 4.5 pounds, and traveling with its power adapter brings that up to 5 pounds. Considering its size — it measures 1 inch high by 15 inches wide by 10.1 inches deep — that’s very reasonable, and the rounded corners and edges make it easy to slide in and out of a bag.
The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 ($579.99 list) is a fairly nondescript, glossy-black laptop, with a 15.6-inch screen and full-size keyboard. It’s the moderately priced replacement for that ancient wheezing laptop with the battery that can only last fifteen minutes before it needs a recharge. The Aspire E1-572-6870 has a six-hour battery and excellent performance for a system with a price that is on the high end of the budget laptop category. However, the fact that it’s significantly more expensive than other budget laptops we’ve reviewed holds the Aspire E1-572-6870 back from earning top honors.
The Aspire E1-572-6870 comes with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5-4200U processor with Intel HD Graphics 4400, 4GB of system memory, and a 500GB hard drive. Thanks to all these newer components, it is more than a match for the Pentium-powered Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK) and the AMD A6-powered Gateway NE72206u on all the benchmarks tests, including day-to-day tests and multimedia benchmark tests. No wonder, since the Aspire E1-572-6870’s CPU is the same one used in $700-to-$1,500 ultrabooks.
The Aspire E1-572-6870’s performance dominance extends to battery life as well: the energy efficient Core i5 processor in the Aspire E1-572-6870 helps it achive a six hour battery life, much better than the four hours of the Dell Inspiron 15 and the 5 hours of the Gateway NE72206u. If you’re looking for performance on the cheap, the Aspire E1-572-6870 is a better laptop than most of the sub-$500 systems out there.
And there’s the rub: The Aspire E1-572-6870 is one of those systems that skirts the mainstream and the budget categories, and at this price or higher you really want a touch screen. With a list price of $580, the Aspire E1-572-6870 is $200 more than the Editors’ Choice Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK). That makes the Dell Inspiron a much better value, since aside from performance, the two laptops are competitive, feature for feature. Yes, the Aspire E1-572-6870 lasts two hours longer on the battery rundown test and is perceptibly faster, so it earns our recommendation for budget-minded people who are impatient or want to use the system unplugged. The majority of general users trying to save (more than) a few bucks on a new system will be better served by the Dell Inspiron 15 and $200 in their pockets.
