Acer Aspire ES1-572-31KW 15.6-inch

The Acer Aspire ES1-572-31KW is a bestselling 2016 budget laptop that has been praised for its Intel Core i3 processor, its performance to price ratio and for its sharp and bright display. With an attractive price, the Acer Aspire ES1-572-31KW features an Intel i3 processor and more powerful graphics than its Celeron and Pentium counterparts, making it fairly popular for casual gaming. However, the 4GB of RAM will struggle with applications such as Google Chrome and we recommend adding at least another 4GB of RAM to allow it to run smoothly.
