Acer Aspire E5-575G-75MD
Acer Aspire E5-575G-75VG: Aspire E Series laptops are great choices for everyday users, with lots of appealing options and an attractive design that exceed expectations. With many enhanced components, color choices, and a textured metallic finish, the Aspire E makes every day better.
The Acer Aspire E5-575G-75VG is not the only decent laptop selling for under $740, but it is one of the few that offers worthwhile gaming chops. With high-quality hardware, long battery life and competent performance for both work and play, the E5 price is better than you might expect for the price. On the other hand, a so-so screen, shallow keys, and an uncomfortable touchpad drag the experience down a peg or two, but these are annoyances, not deal breakers. The Aspire E5 does what users will expect, and a little more, which makes it worth a look.
The Aspire E5’s 15.6-inch screen features a reasonable 1080p resolution, but despite very strong synthetic test numbers, it provides dual output and poor color accuracy.
The Aspire E5-575G-75VG is fairly handsome but subdued. The black, plastic chassis features a subtle thatched pattern with a finish somewhere between shiny and matte. As a result, the device looks rather unremarkable, which is probably exactly what heavy-duty productivity users want.
The size is also exactly what you’d expect for a laptop with a 15-inch screen: 15.0 x 10.2 x 1.2 inches. For comparison, the two competing models mentioned above are within two-tenths of an inch on every measurement. The Aspire E5-575G-53VG is pretty no-nonsense when it comes to ports. On the sides of the machine, you’ll find three regular USB ports, one USB Type-C connector, an HDMI port and an Ethernet port.
An SD card reader on the front and a writable DVD drive on the right side round out the offerings. My only complaint is that two of the USB ports are quite close to each other, making it hard to attach multiple dongles if the attachments are even a little bigger than average.
