Acer AS5253-BZ602 15.6-Inch Laptop
I bought this Acer AS5253-BZ602 15.6-Inch Laptop about 2 weeks ago and I am very pleased.
This laptop really offers everything I need from a 15″ screen range laptop. From entertainment wise, the HDMI output is a great feature of this laptop.
Office applications, Internet, and Multimedia works without issue. The boot process is amazing, I run Windows 7 64 bit, and it does reboot about 45 seconds.
Not much different with this price range laptops, Acer AS5253-BZ602 also comes with loads of pre-installed softwares that are not so important for me.
Thankfully, those softwares can be removed easily. Not a big deal, but it is worth mentioning.
The main aspects why I did purchase this Acer AS5253-BZ602 is because its lower power consumption and its multimedia capabilities. (Got it for $268.59 here)
For its AMD E350 CPU, this laptop runs well and quite to play some games, such as Dragon Age 2 amd 4 Dead 2 without any laggings or heat.
Appearance wise, this Acer AS5253 model is very well designed with its matte surface to be scratches resistant.
This can happen when you have a pencil or pen even in your bag, or even your finger. It looks elegant, and does not look to be a cheap laptop.
Acer AS5253-BZ602 display is super clear, it is really great when you want to watch movies, or edit some of your images and pictures. The webcam quality is also not bad, the result is quite bright and sharp.
The keyboard is a big plus, it includes numeric keys which I think it is something unusual for a notebook. The touchpad is decent, at first I was not used to it, but I am getting better with it.
In the right side, you will find the scroll function that works well, as well as the zoom multi-touch function.
It is very helpful if you don’t want to always use the mouse. However, the touchpad is less responsive than my old laptop.
This Acer AS5253 is so light, it weighs only 8 pounds with its whole package!
The battery life is quite decent, it still runs about 3 until 4,5 hours with fully loaded of computing works.
