Great performer in a budget
Display and Design
The Acer Aspire E1-572 (NX.M8ESI.009) is equipped with a 15.6-inch Acer CineCrystal TFT LCD display with LED backlit which poses comfortable viewing experience with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It comes loaded in a 25.3mm thick black colored body with a weight of 2.3kg.

Under the hood, it is driven by an advanced 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor clocked at 1.6GHz and built on QM87 Express chipset. It is aided by a typical 4GB DDR3 RAM which can be boosted up to 8GB via 2 unused memory slots. In the absence of any external graphics card, it relies on Intel HD 4400 GPU for managing rich videos and games. It runs on 64 bit Linux OS; this is an area where Acer has saved some bucks.

Furnished with an advanced Intel Core i5 processor, the Acer Aspire E1-572 (NX.M8ESI.009) will never pose any difficulties to deal with multiple business tasks at ease.
