This review is for the Acer E5-573G-52G3 laptop computer purchased 2016-02-15, sold by and shipped from This product family is currently the value leader in the categories of desktop replacement and entry level gaming. Overall the machine is excellent, but with a few compromises that have to be taken into account. I'm giving it 4 stars.

I use my laptop 100% in Linux (OpenSuSE 42.1) for software development, document preparation, system administration across the net, and web page maintenance.

Pro factors:

Con factors -- as always, it's a lot easier to criticize than to congratulate.

Hurdles for the Linux user, which you will need to work around:

So my conclusion is, this machine has a lot of good features, but there are some significant issues on which you will have to be willing to compromise, and Linux support has not caught up to some important features.
