Looking for a back to school laptop on a budget? Step away from the MacBook and consider a less bulky option like the Acer Aspire 5. It’s durable, portable, and reliable—and best of all, it won’t break the bank.
Driver Acer Aspire 5(opens in a new tab) already reasonably priced at just $389.99, but you can pick up the Core i3, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage configuration for just $274.99 at Amazon.
The Aspire 5 (in different configurations) is one of our top picks for a student laptop, especially for its versatile port options (USB-C, USB 3.2, HDMI), great connectivity (WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5), and a crisp 15.6-inch FHD display. Thanks to slim bezels and a huge screen-to-body ratio, you’ll have more space to work. The display is even equipped with Acer’s BlueLightShield, which protects your eyes during late night study sessions.
You will feel confident carrying this baby around. Don’t forget to pack your charger, because its battery life is not as good as 8.5 hours.
