[Walmart] Acer Aspire 3/5 Laptops $265/$250, in-store YMMV

Just came back with 2 laptops in hand, for myself and my son.
This is a new markdowns, not those that were cleared a month or so ago. At least at my Kanata South Walmart tags were not updated on the shelve. Walmart rep told me it's my lucky day, lol. Not all stores updated prices yet, so keep an eye out. Store inventory showed both 2 instock, but there were 1 each visible.
Acer Aspire 5 15.6" Laptop Intel Core i3-1005G1 A515-55-33H1, 4GB, 128GB, FHD $250 (reg. $528), stocktrack: https://stocktrack.ca/?s=wm&upc=19513310492
Acer Aspire 3 15.6" laptop AMD Ryzen 3 3250 A315-23-R1UM, 8GB, 256GB, HD $265 (reg. $528), stocktrack: https://stocktrack.ca/?s=wm&upc=19319983860

Should be good for light work/study. The Aspire 5 has FHD 1080 screen, but Aspire 3 more ram and drive.

Good luck!

One of the Walmart's near me has 5 of the Aspire 3 laptops in stock. It's a good price, but I can't find any reviews on that model.

Low res screen is a bummer, but would something like this work well for streaming my game console's to Twitch? or are these more like word processing and YouTube machines?

Thanks for your post. Got one at Calgary Northland. $100 more is worth it for the i5 more ram and bigger hdd

Stock tracker shows 2 but only saw one in cabinet but the handheld he scanned with said 2 instock so not sure if there is another somewhere. There wasn’t a demo unit so can’t be that

There was 3 in Quebec but they didn't want to bother to search for them. The clerk lied at first saying there was none, I asked another employee who told me there was three available, then came back at the first one who said the second clerk lied to me Face With Tears Of JoySmiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat in the end he took a quick look saying there was still none

Snagged the last soundlink micro as well for 49

Thanks OP!

The i5 is a 1ghz cpu, isn’t this pretty low end?

Opened up the i3 model. Looks like RAM is on-board somewhere but there's an empty slot on the left.

How do I know what/whether I can use that slot to add RAM? I haven't the slightest clue what type to buy. See photo


Edit: threw in an 8gb 2400 stick I cannibalized from my dead dell 7380 and now the machine is much faster!

The price is good, but the screen resolution is terrible. 1366 x 768, is considered to be old old generation in 2021
I have had an Aspire V3-571 i7 CPU for more than 8 years. The plastic shell is quite beaten up but it still kicks like young.
Everything is good except the terrible screen display and grainy resolution. 1366 x 768 is really really grainy as today's standard, even for reading web pages.
Don't buy, spend more for a higher resolution screen, it really pays off for the sake of eye comfort.

Aspire 5 is FHD 1080p screen. It's i3 processor though, good enough for me, the rest is upgradable. $250 is very good IMO.
I'd buy the i5 version for $100 more, but it's full price nearby.
