Acer laptops are known for their durability and design. Many people in Kenya don’t own the laptops, but in my experience (I’ve used an acer laptop for a year) they last a long time.
The list below has the best Acer laptops in Kenya in No particular order.
1Acer Aspire E5-575-72L3 – 15.6″ – Intel Core i7 – 1TB HDD – 8GB RAM
The Acer Aspire laptop in Kenya comes with a 15.6-inch display. The resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels with LED backlit technology. The display quality is average but the performance is ahead of many laptops in the country.
With an Intel Core i7 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM, the laptop is able to run most programs with ease.
When it comes to multi-tasking, the 8GB of RAM ensures that you won’t notice any lag or performance reduction if multiple programs are opened at the same time.
The fact that the processor is 6th generation also makes the performance of the laptop better.
The processor speed is 2.5Ghz and this can be increased to 3.1 Ghz if the performance is required by the software running
Usually, I find that 1TB of internal memory is suitable for almost everyone, unless you want to store many movies on this machine.
This laptop is suitable for business people and even students. it can do light gaming; however, it cannot run AAA games such as GTA 5 with high frame rates. So is you are a gamer you can check out the HP m7 gaming laptop in Kenya.

2Acer Aspire E5-574G-7387 – 15.6″ – Intel Core i7-6500U – 1TB HDD – 4GB RAM – Windows 10 Home
Let’s start with the “problems” first, it only features 4GB of RAM. The laptop would have been better with 8GB, however, this can be increased to using the memory expansion slots.
With an Intel Core i7-6500U, this laptop runs programs and software quite easily. The good thing is that it comes with Windows 10 Home preinstalled, so you can use the laptop straight out of the box.
The design, I somehow don’t like it because of the color. But people’s preferences are different so it may not be a bother to you. Also, the overall form of the laptop is compact and pleasing to the eye.
With the available 1TB of HDD storage, your files, movies, music and pictures can all go comfortably into the computer without needing further storage.
3Acer Aspire Laptop ES1-431 – 14″ – Intel Celeron – 2GB RAM – 500GB HDD – Windows 10
What you should know from the word go is that this laptop is 14 inches. I would consider this a little bit small for my taste, however, the decision solely lies on you the buyer.
The laptop is appropriate for students and office workers. This is because the machine is not performance focused, however, it perfectly runs programs and software such as Microsoft Office Suites (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher).
This laptop can store hundreds of movies and files since it has a 500GB internal memory capacity. You also don’t need to worry about installing windows 10 since that is already done for you.

4Acer Aspire ES1-431 – 14″ – Intel Pentium – 4GB RAM – 500GB HDD – Windows 10 – Black
The design of this laptop is neat, I usually love well designed laptops since that is rear in the low end laptop segment.
It comes with an Intel Celeron Processor which has a speed of 1.6Ghz. The processor with the 4GB Ram ensures that you don’t get a performance hit when running programs and software.
I however feel like the laptop should have had a 15.6-inch screen, the 14 inch one may be too small for some people. This problem is negated by the fact that the small screen size improves portability because the laptop is lighter. So if you transit for long hours each day, this laptop is appropriate for you.

5Acer Aspire ES1-571- 30EA- 15.6″ – Intel i3-5005U – 500GB HDD – 4GB RAM
For the price, I would easily take the laptop any day. If you compare the performance with the price, you definitely get money for value.
The Intel Core i3 processor is suitable for light tasks that don’t require much processing power. The i3 is better than Intel Celeron processor in terms of performance, so if you require a little bit more performance, this laptop is just perfect for you.
Also, the 4GB of RAM ensures that the laptop doesn’t lag or slow down when multiple browser tabs are opened at the same time.
In my personal experience, a quick way to tell the performance of a laptop is to see how fast it opens chrome browser and how many tabs can be opened and the computer used comfortably.
The internal storage capacity is 500GB, I feel like they should have increased this to at least 1TB.

6Acer Aspire E5-473 – 14″ – Core i3 – 500GB HDD – 4GB RAM – Windows 10 – Charcoal Grey
It seems like Acer love making 14inch laptops. They believe that this is the screen size that combines performance, usability and portability. In my own personal opinion, I find that 15.6 inch laptops should be the bare minimum for a man, however, ladies can go with less.
It has an Intel Core i3 processor with 4GB of RAM, this leads to an average performance. Which leads me to my next point, this is a machine perfect for light tasks and light gaming. Don’t expect to run the latest titles on this.
Windows 10 also comes preinstalled so you don’t have to look for a third party to install it for you.

7Acer Aspire Switch 10″ – Intel Atom QC – 2GB RAM – 32GB+500GB HDD – Windows 10
This is one of the most “stylish” laptops on this list in Kenya. The tablet/laptop is designed with portability, style, usability in mind. The laptop can easily transform into a tablet by detaching it from the base.
The storage of the acer is 500GB when attached to the base, it however has only 32GB of storage if in tablet mode and detached from the base. With the 2GB of ram, its performance is ahead of some android transformers in the market.
Since the device runs windows 10, you have familiar software on your hands. I usually find that using an android tablet cannot be compared to using windows one. The windows one brings the feeling of work while the android brings the feeling of paly, i.e. watching movies and browsing the net.

8Acer Aspire E 15 E5-572 – 15″ – Intel Core i5 – 2.3GHz – 500GB – 4GB RAM – No Os – Midnight Black
For those who require performance from a laptop without breaking the bank, this the laptop to go with. The Intel Core i5 does not cost as much as the i7 so this is budget friendly.
However, it comes with only 500GB of storage which I consider very inadequate for use if you store a lot of movies and large files.
It comes with a 15-inch screen which is just below the 15.6 we are used to.
The laptop costs 43,000 at Jumia Kenya. VIEW LAPTOP OFFER
9 Acer Aspire ES1-571-5715 – 15.6″ – Linux – Intel Core i5-4200U – 500GB HDD – 4GB RAM – Black
First, the laptop runs Linux Operating System. When you buy this you will have to change it to Windows 10 or find someone who knows how to do it.
Just as mentioned earlier, currently I feel like having 500GB of storage capacity is inadequate for the average user.
However, it nice knowing that the laptop is a performer considering that it has an Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM.
If the amount of ram doesn’t satisfy your need, you can increase it to 8GB. In Nairobi, 4GB of ram is around Kshs 2100 with free installation from whomever you are buying it from. Be careful thou, this voids the warranty.
Its price in Kenya is Kshs 44,000. CLICK TO SEE JUMIA PRICE
