For us, one of the most exciting chapters is performance. Can Acer's Aspire E1-571G stand out from the competition with its Intel Core i3 3110M and the dedicated GeForce GT 620M featuring 1 GB of memory? Smooth workflow, watching movies and the occasional game should at least be possible in low details.
An Intel Core i3 3310M is installed in Acer's Aspire E1-571G. It is based on Intel's latest Ivy Bridge architecture. Unlike the more expensive models from the Core-i range, this processor does not feature CPU Turbo. Consequently, its default clock of 2.4 GHz cannot be increased. This maximum clock was available on battery power or during longer load in our test device and the performance remained constant.
The hard drive in our system is dubbed Toshiba MQ01ABD050. It has a capacity of 500 GB and spins with slow 5400 revolutions per minute. The hard drive's capacity is adequate for the price range. Only Samsung's NP355V5C sports a larger 750 GB hard drive. Asus K53TK is only available with a smaller 320 GB HDD. The access and transfer rates are on an average level. We did not record outliers in either direction. Users who want faster data access can replace the hard drive with an ultra-swift SSD after removing a few screws.
The GeForce GT 620M ranges in the lower midfield of graphics cards. Consequently, it should be able to render up-to-date games in low details. It might also be necessary to reduce the resolution. The graphics card features a 1024 MB dedicated memory and uses Nvidia's Optimus to save power. The energy-efficient, processor-integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 takes care of low load and the GeForce automatically jumps in during demanding tasks unnoticed by the user.
The graphics card's power was not throttled even after longer load or on battery power. It maintained its full clock rate of 625 MHz. Our test device was approximately on a par with the contenders, which exclusively use AMD graphics cards, in 3DMark 06. Only Dell's Inspiron 15R scored by about 20% higher with its newer AMD Radeon HD 8730M.

Just how suitable is the Intel Core i3 processor and the lower midrange graphics card combination for gaming? Our test shows that the stronger processor gives our test system a small advantage in some games. However, the performance is largely dependent on the GeForce GT 620M. It can render many up-to-date games in medium detail settings as long as the games are not exceptionally demanding.
Stuttering may occur when the screen gets to crowded in Anno 2070 and Diablo 3 still runs smoothly even in high settings. However, the performance gets tight when too many monsters occupy the screen here as well. Thus, it is recommendable to select a lower detail level to really experience a stutter-free game. These games can usually be played in the native resolution because the screen's resolution is fairly low.
Overall, Acer's Aspire E1-571G is on the same performance level as the other entry-level laptops. The better processor can only squeeze out minor performance advantages in games. Users who want to play in higher resolutions and with more details will have to invest a few hundred euros more and opt for laptop featuring a Radeon HD 7730M, GeForce GT 640M or higher.
A good sound is vital for a multimedia device. The competition partly installs brand name speakers, such as Altec Lansing (HP and Asus), but with quite varying outcomes. Acer's Aspire E1-571G manages to extract a decent maximum volume from both no-name speakers located above the keyboard. The sound is also quite balanced and good for laptop conditions, although the low ranges are virtually non-existent like in most cases. Users who like to listen to music on their laptop should prefer external speakers or a headphone. The sound output via the audio port was flawless in our test device.
