The Acer 15.6" Aspire E5-553-11PT Notebook is a mid-level Windows 10 Home system that sports an AMD A12-9700P quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 RAM, so you can edit images, create spreadsheets, write reports, and more. The Acer Aspire E5-553-11PT is equipped with a 15.6" display as well as an integrated AMD Radeon R7 Graphics chipset, which produces 1366 x 768 visuals to the LED display and can extend the onscreen workspace to your monitors via an HDMI and VGA port. For performance, the AMD A12-9700P processor operates between 2.5 and 3.4 GHz frequencies and has 2MB of cache memory. Additionally, a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive is on board to offer ample space for storing videos, files, and other digital content.

Acer has outfitted this notebook with one USB 2.0, one USB 3.1 Type-C, and two USB 3.0 ports, so that the system can access your printers, external storage drives, and other useful peripherals. To access the Internet and networks, it comes armed with 802.11ac Wi-Fi along with a Gigabit Ethernet port. There's also Bluetooth for wireless access to headsets and speakers. Other notable features include a pair of built-in speakers, a microphone, a webcam, and an SD memory card reader.

Windows 10 Home Features

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    Acer Aspire E5-553-11PT reviews

    15.6" Aspire E5-553-11PT Notebook is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! The laptop is essentially for my personal use. The graphics are great, and I have not found anything that I don't care for. There is another Acer in the family and that was one reason I chose this one. Both have been very reliable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slower than expected It takes a long time to start and you "think" many times before opening a photo, for example. It does not have a backlit keyboard like the poster in the sales room offered. It works correctly, but it does not dazzle. I would not buy it again. I think that the model with Intel processor should work better.
