Another novelty in Acer’s portfolio is the Acer Aspire 5 series notebooks, which are offered in three sizes. They rely on the latest 13th generation Intel Core processors, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics card and up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM.
Acer Aspire 5: New edition of the notebook unveiled
In the course of CES 2023, Acer has presented us with some exciting new products. Among them, for example, the gaming notebooks Predator Helios 16 and Helios 18 or the powerful all-in-one PC Aspire S27.
The well-known Acer Aspire 5 series also gets an update that is quite something. Thus, the latest version relies on current Intel Core processors of the 13th generation – optionally the Core i3-1315U, Core i5-1335U or the Core i7-1355U), which the manufacturer combines with a maximum of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics unit. The Duo is supported by up to 32 GB of DDR4 working memory and a maximum of a 1 TB M.2 SSD.
Offered is the notebook line in three display sizes: 14-inch, 15.6-inch and 17-inch. The 14-inch variant resolves in Full HD with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and that with a 16:10 format. The model with a 15.6-inch display comes with a QHD resolution and in a 16:9 format, and the manufacturer does not provide any details about the 17-incher.
Otherwise, the notebooks rely on an effective TwinAir cooling system including a keyboard with air intakes and a webcam in Full HD resolution. Smart features like Acer PurfiedView and Acer PurifiedVoice, which are supposed to improve the picture and sound quality during video calls, are also part of the package.
The Acer Aspire 5 notebooks are also equipped with Thunderbolt 4, which realizes data speeds of up to 40 Gbit/s via USB Type-C, as well as fast Wi-Fi 6E and HDMI 2.1, via which resolutions of up to 8K are possible.

The Acer Aspire 5 should be available in Europe as early as March 2023, at least in the 14-inch and 15.6-inch sizes, while the 17-inch model will have to wait until April.
