Acer Aspire E5-523G-978B Laptop is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value I bought it a few weeks ago, it works fine for me,I like it
Date published: 2018-02-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great specs, poor performance. I got this laptop less than 12 months ago expecting it to work for my low-end games (Star Stable has minimum requirements) but have been really disappointed with the results. I was expecting a fairly decent performance based on the price and specs. The specs look great but the performance does not add up. Either my particular pc is faulty or this is just how it is.
