With dimensions of 2.16 x 38.16 x 26.3cm and a weight of 2.20kg (4.85 pounds), the Aspire 5 is quite a large laptop, but it’s not too heavy or unwieldy to carry around. There are even a couple of areas where it’s punching above its weight class — the audio is great, and it’s nice to have a fingerprint reader.
