Pros

  • Powerful hardware
  • Full-HD display
  • NVIDIA graphics

Cons

  • 5400rpm hard drive
  • No optical drive

Bottom Line

The Aspire E 15 E5-574G-54Y2 is a great value for your money laptop that comes with an NVIDIA graphics card for gaming.


The Aspire E 15 E5-574G-54Y2 is a bestselling 2016 15.6-inch laptop that has received positive reviews for its low voltage hardware that offers good battery life, its NVIDIA graphics and its great value for your money. The 1TB hard drive offers ample storage space, but its 5400rpm speed does affect its performance. The 8GB of RAM that back the 6th generation i5 processor will handle most day-to-day tasks, but it can easily and cheaply be upgraded as Acer has left one slot open. While most laptops in its price category don’t come with Full-HD displays, the Aspire E5-574G-54Y2 has a maximum resolution of 1920×1080. Its predecessor did not come with an optical drive and critics hoped that the new version would, but Acer has once again opted for no optical drive.

    The Acer Aspire E5 offers long battery life and solid performance for the money, but its mushy keyboard and dim screen disappoint.

    The impressive hardware almost makes up for the Acer Aspire E15's faults, but this notebook's problems will only grow more annoying over time.

One review on Acer Aspire E 15 E5-574G-54Y2 15.6-inch

    by Chris on May 12, 2016

    Amazing Laptop, was looking for a cheap daily driver that could handle civilization this laptop more than handles it and is a great buy dont let the plastic build material scare you, its very durable and textured. The laptop is speedy with minimal bloat, i actually kept the majority of included software and have found it to be quite beneficial.

    Has a built in defrag tool and a built in optimization tool. Which got rid of the need to install c cleaner.
