The machine is driven by a 7th Generation Intel ntel Core i5-7200U processor, a dual-core component based on Intel’s Kaby Lake architecture and featuring Turbo Boost technology. This means that each of the two cores is capable of adjusting it’s speed from 2.5 GHz up to a maximum of 3.1 GHz, depending on the needs of the current software application. It also features HyperThreading, allowing it to handle up to 4 threads at once. Together, these technologies allow the processor to conserve power where possible, while still delivering maximum performance when it’s needed.

The processor is supported by 8GB of DDR4 memory. This is a fairly standard amount of memory for a machine in this class, and should be more than enough to allow the Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 to run the supplied copy of Windowa 10 Home without difficulty, multitasking your applications with ease.

For permanent storage of your documents, music, pictures, videos and, of course, software applications, the machine is fitted with a 256GB SSD. Although this offers less storage capacity than is commonly found in conventional Hard Disk Drives, this is more than made up for by the substantial performance gains offered by SSDs over HDDs. Furthermore, 256GB will probably be more than enough storage capacity for most users, making the tradeoff between speed and capacity even more worthwhile. However, should you find that you eventually need more space, the machine provides easy access to internal components, making it easy to either replace the original SSD or add another one. The machine’s memory modules are similarly easy to access and upgrade.

On the subject of disk drives, this laptop is fitted with an 8X DVD-Super Multi Double-Layer (M-DISC enabled) optical drive. Many modern machines omit an optical drive, and, although they are arguably less important than they once were, they are still very useful to have. Whether for watching a DVD from your collection, installing software from original media or backing up your data, an optical drive optical drives can be very convenient, and it’s good to see one included with this machine.

The machine’s 15.6 inch, Full HD, Widescreen, LED-backlit, 1920 x 1080 pixel display is driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 940MX Graphics Processing Unit with 2GB of DDR5 VRAM. This is a mid-range laptop graphics card with support for DirectX 12. Although it will be no match for higher-end cards, this GPU should be able to handle fairly demanding games at low to medium settings in WXGA resolution. Naturally, it should also be capable of handling everyday computing chores without difficulties.

Eventually, you will probably want or need to connect your laptop to an external display, perhaps to watch a movie in comfort or to make a presentation for work. The Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 features a built-in HDMI port for this purpose, making it easy to attach it to an HDTV or monitor.

As you would expect, the machine is capable of connecting to both wired and wireless networks. A Gigabit Ethernet port is provided for those who want or need to connect to a wired network, while 802.11ac Wi-Fi featuring MU-MIMO technology (Dual-Band 2.4GHz and 5GHz) allows you to connect to wireless networks, either at home, in the office or on the move. Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity is also available, allowing you to attach Bluetooth headsets, mice, and other peripherals, or exchange files wirelessly with cellphones and cameras.

For conventional connections to wired peripherals, including printers, external hard drives and memory sticks, the machine is fitted with a range of USB ports; one USB 3.1 port with type C connector, two high speed USB 3.0 ports (one of which offers power-off charging of your devices) and one legacy USB 2.0 port.

An SD card reader and a Mic / Headphone combo jack, such as you would expect to find on almost all laptops, round of the list of connectivity options. The machine also features a built-in HD Webcam (1280 x 720) supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR), which makes it video-chat ready right out of the box.

The machine measures 10.2 x 15.02 x 1.19 inches, and weighs 5.3 pounds, making it small enough to be easily portable, while remaining sturdy enough to survive the inevitable bumps and knocks that befall all laptops eventually. And, wherever you take it, the reported battery life of up to 12 hours ensures that you’ll have enough juice to get the job done!

Overall, the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 is an attractive option for anyone looking for a mid range, general purpose laptop. Everyday computing tasks are well within its capabilities, and the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU gives it a little more power than many other laptops in this class. It isn’t a dedicated gaming laptop, and will probably struggle with demanding games, particularly at high resolutions and detail settings, but for routine tasks and less heavy-duty games, as well as more demanding application software, it’s an excellent choice.
