Acer is a brand known for quality products and one of its dependable products is the Aspire series of laptops. The company recently announced the new Aspire 7 with the 10th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, and we got a chance to check it out.

The design of the laptop hasn’t changed much it follows the design cue of the company’s earlier models. What however has changed is its specs. The new Aspire 7 comes with the 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, coupled with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 for all the graphics power you would need.

The laptop also comes with 8GB of DDR4 memory and 512GB of M.2 PCIe SSD for internal storage. The Aspire 7 has been built for both work and play. So, it does not matter whether you are a prosumer, designer, hobbyist, gamer, or content creator, the Acer Aspire 7 will appeal to you.

Inside the box, you get some paperwork and a 13W charger. The body of the laptop is made using plastic, with a pretty strong chassis. The overall design of the Aspire 7 is business-centric. The device overall weighs around 2.15-kgs and has a profile of about 23mm.

Upon opening up the lid, you come face to face with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS matte with a screen-to-body ratio of 81.61%, which is fantastic. The top and bottom bezels are a bit thick. However, you will also find an HD Web camera on the top bezel, which will be of use in case of a “work from home” scenario.

The display also supports Acer’s Color Intelligence and ExaColor technologies for a better viewing experience. You also get support for the Acer TrueHarmony technology for better bass performance. Whether you are watching a movie or playing a game, it makes a lot of difference.

The keyboard is backlit with nice spacing between keys and the key travel being up to mark. There is also a NumPad section and small “Up” and “Down” Arrow keys. The touchpad meanwhile is of a decent size and has a glass surface, You will also find an embedded fingerprint reader in there.

In terms of I/O ports, you get a good selection. On the left edge, you will find the Kensington lock slot, a LAN port, an HDMI port, a USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 1) port, and two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports. On the right edge, you will find the power plug, and one USB Type-A 2.0 port.

Performance on the Aspire 7 was really good – whether it was using productivity apps, watching a movie, or playing a game, the Acer Aspire 7 was able to handle it all, without any problem. In our battery tests, the Aspire 7’s 50Wh battery lasted almost 11 hours of battery life on a single charge.

While the Acer Aspire 7 is not a gaming laptop, it stood its ground when it came to intensive benchmarks. The battery life is good, the overall specs are brilliant, and the display and audio are excellent. If you are on the market for a dependable laptop that can be used for both work and play, the Acer Aspire 7 might fit your bill.
