The 256GB capacity isn’t extraordinary, but still provides a decent amount of data storage space. The good news is that storage and RAM are upgradeable on the Acer Aspire 5 A515-54-51DJ. As for gaming, the Intel UHD 620 graphics, which is integrated into the main Core i5 processor, is good only for lighter game titles.

Other features of the A515-54-51DJ worth mentioning are backlight on the keyboard, a finger-print reader integrated into the notebook’s touchpad, aluminum display lid, slim design, and great portability. The laptop measures only 0.7″ in profile and weighs in at 4 pounds. That’s a light weight for a 15.6-inch notebook.
