The Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-53V6 is a great budget gaming laptop that received positive reviews for its powerful hardware at a bargain price, a slick design, good battery life, and a backlit keyboard for gaming in the dark. Reviewers were, however, critical of it’s lacklustre dim display and an average touchpad which may be off putting for some users.
