The new Acer Aspire F5-572G’s battery life isn’t one of its strongest suits
This budget-friendly notebook from Acer has some pretty cool and unique selling points that need to be considered when buying the machine. It boasts pretty decent specs, including Intel Core i7-6500U Skylake CPU and discrete NVIDIA GeForce 940M GPU. Not only that, but the notebook also offers unique design pattern and premium brushed aluminum keyboard tray that goes along with excellent touchpad and keyboard.
You can find the notebook and all of its available configurations at Amazon.com.
However, just like every product out there, the Acer Aspire F5-572G has its own weaknesses, so if you are looking for few extra hours away from the charger, this laptop might not be the best choice. Our tests in controlled environment – Wi-Fi turned on, screen brightness set to 120 cd/m2 and power saver turned on – indicate around 260 minutes of browsing time and only 245 minutes of video playback. Given the fact that the CPU is ULV (ultra-low voltage), the display uses energy-efficient TN panel and the GPU isn’t draining too much power, the main reason for this should be the 37Wh battery
