Where does the Acer Aspire M5 fall short?
There are many cons listed about the Acer Aspire M5.
- The screen of the device is not good. The washed out appearance is found in the screen.
- The speakers are also not up to the mark. When placed on any uneven surface the sound is inaudible, which is because the speakers are straight down from the bottom of the laptop.
- The keyboard needs a firm press. Within few days, the user may feel tiresome to use the machine. Without new additional drivers, the sensitivity of the touchpad is not good.
- The touchscreen has also the shortcomings; the user can see liquid ripples at the edge of the device.
Even with some shortcomings, the device also appeals with its other positive features. If you look for a sturdy chassis and long battery life in the computer, which is also affordable and durable, then you can give a go at the Acer Aspire M5 Ultrabook.
