If its purely for office work/web surfing.. its ok I guess, fairly typical mid range productivity laptop. just an average deal. But you intend on doing any amount of gaming I'd look else where.

I will also play some Roblox games etc and will also work on some gaming animation software. Is this acer not good for some gaming? The Acer has Intel UHD graphic card. Is this other laptop in this range?

I don't see the Generation information about this Acer laptop in the website. Is this 10th generation Laptop?

Do laptops have generations? Are you talking about the CPU? It's i5-10210U, so 10th generation.

It's not bad as a general purpose laptop, although the 10th gen cpus are from 2019. Also note they have the 620 integrated graphics which has been around for even longer so from today's gaming expectations, mediocre at best.

If light gaming is a factor, I'd look at some of the newer Ryzen powered laptops or even the 11th generation Intels with the Iris XE graphics (still not a gaming powerhouse, but at least orders of magnitude above the ancient 620 graphics.)

Other than that, the Acer should make a good, reliable buy. I believe you can even add a sata based SSD internally.

Acer has a specific model naming convention that increments up by generation.

Look for A515-56-* for 15 inch Apire 5 with the 11th gen intel and Iris XE graphics, or A515-46-* for the latest Ryzen powered Aspire 5. But be prepared to spend a bit more unless you really just want to settle more for a general purpose laptop and keep the price down.

Any links of Apire 5 with the 11th gen intel and Iris XE graphics, or A515-46-* for the latest Ryzen powered Aspire 5 to see?
