PC makers are refreshing their portfolios with Intel’s 5th gen Core processors which were released last month at CES2015. Acer too has started offering newer processors in its laptops and those are now being made available in Indian market. Acer’s Aspire E5-571 now comes with 5th gen Core i7 U-series processors along with Nividia GeFore 800M GPU. Definitely there are going to be variants with different configurations. The top of the line variant comes with 12GB RAM and 1TB HDD. It’s still not up on Acer India’s website so I don’t know how many variants its offering or what’s going to the base configuration. I’m expecting detailed information on this from Acer.
By the way, the base model with Core i7 processor will cost just Rs.44,999 ($725) which is absolutely cheap for a laptop with Core i7 processor. For reference, my cousin bought a laptop with 4th gen Core i5 for Rs.44k ($710) from another brand. So, Acer is definitely offering higher value for money and you can definitely go with it. This laptop will come in five colors and offer 7 hrs of battery backup.
