Most Favorable Review

Best value right now

Acer Laptop Aspire E5-571-5552 Intel Core i5 4th Gen 4210U (1.70GHz) 4GB DDR3L Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6" Windows 8.1
Acer Laptop Aspire E5-571-5552 Intel Core i5 4th Gen 4210U (1.70GHz) 4GB DDR3L Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6" Windows 8.1

Pros: - Decent processing power (1.7 ghz overclocked to 2.7) - Very long battery life (I average 8 hours per charge at medium brightness.) - Keyboard and mouse pad feel good. Not particularly that amazing. (Full number pad though.) - Ram upgradeable, but it's not easy. - The 4400 Intel graphics chip is okay for regular use, but don't expect to play any intense games on it.

Cons: - Upgrading that machine is not simple. You must unscrew the entire motherboard to add memory. - The screen is not really that great. It's not the worst, but it's definitely a downgrade from my other laptop's 1080p screen.

Overall Review: This is one of the best values you can find right now. Though it's tough to do, once you upgrade the RAM this machine is on par with laptops that are $100 - $200 more.
