Buy Acer Aspire E1-531-BT Laptop (2nd Gen PDC/ 2GB/ 500GB/ Win8) (NX.M12SI.027)



Acer delivered its new Aspire series laptop with windows 8 configuration at the listed price of Rs.33,478  but Flipkart gives it for Rs.27,134 . It is a Aspire E series laptop with the almost same Acer style keyboard that comes with other acer laptops. I personally like the Acer’s keyboards as they are smooth and comfortable to use. This laptop is for daily use purpose.


Sales Package

The laptop comes along with the following

Sales Package Laptop, Battery, AC Adapter, User Guide and Manuals


Processor Configuration


Processor Pentium Dual Core (2nd Generation)
Variant B960
Chipset Mobile HM70 Express
Brand Intel
Clock Speed 2.2 GHz
Cache 2 MB


The Pentium dual code (2nd generation processor) works better but we can’t say this is the best compatible processor for this configuration. Totally for the budget price this configuration is optimal.


System Memory

Expandable Memory Up to 8 GB
Memory Slots 2 (Unused Slot - 1)
System Memory 2 GB DDR3


Initially this laptop comes with 2GB DDR3 RAM. It has 2 memory slots in total in which one 2GB RAM is already set up and the unused slot can be configured with another 2 or 4 or 6 GB memories. Like that it can added up to 8GB.


2GB RAM is sufficient for a normal daily user. If you want to buy this product being a programmer or computer savvy, I recommend you to buy extra memory with it.


System Storage


Hardware Interface SATA
RPM 5400
HDD Capacity 500 GB


The storage of the acer laptops is ever impressive even at low prices. This laptop comes with SATA 500GB HDD with 5400 RPM writing and reading speed.


Optical Disk Drive

Optical Drive DVD RW Drive


It has a optical DVD RW drive just like every laptop with in the this range of price.



Operating System Windows 8
System Architecture 64-bit
OS Architecture 64-bit


As I said before, this laptop comes with windows 8, today-trending OS from Microsoft. It is x64 bit operating system that fits perfectly on the x64 bit system architecture.


Display & Graphics

Screen Size 15.6 inch
Screen Type Active Matrix HD TFT LCD Display with LED Backlit (CineCrystal Technology)


15.6 inches screen is the noticeable size for acer laptops. Acer, generally would manufacture laptops with larger screen sizes which are difficult to carry everywhere. But this size looks handy & portable.


The screen is HD LCD screen with LED backlit using Acer’s CineCrystal Technology(Cinecrystal is the brand name Acer uses for their glossy screen display technology. It also indicates that it is a newer LCD display that uses LED backlighting. Older glossy displays which utilized CCFL backlighting were sold under the CrystalBrite branding.)


Graphic Processor Intel HD Graphics


This laptop comes up with the Intel HD graphics processor like as in any other laptop.


Input & Audio

The input hardware that comes with this laptop are,

Web Camera HD Webcam
Pointer Device Touchpad
Keyboard Standard Keyboard


Internal mic is provided under the webcam for the audio input

Internal Mic Yes



Ethernet Gigabit Ethernet
Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n


Power Source

Battery Backup Upto 4 hours
Power Supply 65 W AC Adapter
Battery Cell 6 cell


4 hours battery backup is noticeable thing in acer laptops. The 6 cell battery works better in bringing up power to multiprocessing tasks on the system. However reducing the brightness and using balanced power settings are recommended to get best battery backup on any laptop.


Ports/Slots & Port Security

USB Port 3 x USB 2.0
RJ45 LAN Yes
HDMI Port Yes, HDMI Port with HDCP Support
VGA Port Yes
Multi Card Slot Yes


3 USB, 1 RJ45 LAN, HDMI and VGA ports are quite common in any laptop. HDMI with HDCP support and multi card slot are noticeable in this laptop. There is no need to buy extra memory card readers to connect the memory cards to the computer to transfer files from and to.


Lock Port Kensington Lock Slot


Kensington lock slot is a small, metal-reinforced hole which is useful for attaching a lock-and-cable apparatus to prevent opportunist theft.



Weight 2.45 kg
Dimension 382 x 253 x 33.2 mm
Color Black weight is a portable weight and when compared to its family of products, Acer Aspire E1-531-BT Laptop is having less weight and small size.


The whole laptop comes in black and a white stripe at the touch pad. This design resembles the Samsung laptops on quick look.



1 year warranty period is given by the Acer in case of any product failures in manufacture. This is very short period for warranty when compared to the other branded laptops.



This laptop is good for daily users who use it for general office applications, internet, and multimedia. Some type of games can also be played but not the heavy ones because the RAM is not sufficient. If you are a geek or a computer savvy better to look for the best that fits your requirements.


Listed Price : Rs.33,478 

Flipkart’s Price: Rs.27,134
