In our synthetic benchmark test, we compared this notebook to the Zenith Uranium and the Acer Aspire V5 - 431 - two similarly priced notebooks. While this one may not win any design awards against competition, it certainly has the better processor. PCMark Vantage gave it an overall score of 1,965, placing it above both the others. It blew the V5 and the Uranium out of the water in the 3DMark Vantage test. CrystalDisk Mark gave it a lower score than the others though. The entire comparison table can be seen below.
As far as typing is concerned, we would have loved it if the keys were chiclet-styled and better spaced. There’s not much of a problem with these keys, just the fact that it slowed down our typing a little. The trackpad is pretty responsive. Boot times were short as we logged into Windows at about 16 seconds, which would be good if you are planning to upgrade to Windows 8 as the boot times will be even shorter. Heat dissipation has been well taken care of and the speaker is loud enough for casual use and is coupled with a bright enough display with good viewing angles. As far as multimedia usage is concerned, the 571 won’t disappoint you.
Battery Eater Pro gave us a time of 1 hour 13 minutes, which translates to four to five hours of battery life, giving the 571 an average score. As a comparison, the V5-431 survived for a full 45 minutes before it died. If you’re going to be constantly on the move, it’ll be a good idea to carry the charger along.
Worth a buy?
Verdict and Price in India
The Acer Aspire E1-571 is priced at Rs.28,315 in India. For a product that’s a good Rs.10,000 cheaper than other notebooks with similar configurations, it offers great bang for your buck. It even has a fully functional Windows 7 Home Basic OS bundled with it. If you were to take away the integrated solutions of the higher-priced notebooks away, there would be very little to differentiate the E1 from the rest. Altogether, it’s a great bundle, and if you’re on a tight budget, the Acer Aspire E1 is absolutely the laptop you should go for.
