Acer Laptop Aspire E 15 E5-574G-54Y2 Intel Core i5 6200U (2.30 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 15.6

Pros: Good processor (latest generation i5), enough RAM, nice display, nice track pad, scratch-resistant finish, light weight, rigid chassis, open DIMM slot, decent keyboard, numeric keypad.

Cons: Soft plastic chassis, weak speakers, wifi reception could be better, tons of bloatware, 5400 rpm drive, no light for capslock or numlock.

Other Thoughts: This is a bargain basement i5 laptop with pretty decent specs.

I created a Win10 bootable USB flash drive, swapped out the HDD for a SSD, and did a fresh install. There are about 19 screws that hold the bottom on the case. Use a guitar pick or some similar piece of plastic to separate the chassis shell and avoid scratching the soft plastic. Be careful not to over-extend the tiny connector for the SD card reader when you separate the halves. Removal of the HDD and replacement with an SSD was straight-forward. At some point, I will either install an optical drive in the open bay, or maybe just install the original 5400rpm HDD for file storage.

Win10 boots to the login screen in less than 6 seconds. I'm not exaggerating. Like 5.5 seconds.

This is my first experience with Win10 and so far I like it OK. I really like Win7, and though Win10 looks very different, much of the functionality of Win7 is still there. And with the search function, it's not too hard to find. I have yet to find any compatibility problems with my legacy applications.

I like the trackpad and all of its gestures. The display is gorgeous. The speakers suck.

For the price, I would recommend this to anyone. Put in an SSD and a fresh OS install, and you're really cookin'.

I bought this to replace a tired 5 year old Toshiba i3 that I had continually done performance upgrades to, like adding RAM and going to SSD. My wife tried Macbook for 5 years but thinks she's ready to come back to Windows, so maybe I'll buy another one of these for her.

3 out of 5 eggs Description/specification is deceptive 02/04/2016

This review is from: 2.5" IDE Hard Drive Disk External Silver Case Enclosure Box USB 2.0 Laptop PC

Pros: It's a nice looking little thing

Cons: I bought this specifically because the number of bays in the description/specifications is 2. I took this to mean that it had 2 bays for 2 hard drives. But this is NOT the case. It only accepts 1 drive. There is only 1 bay.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap and looks nice. I'll give it a try for function and report back later.
