The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.Uses a fanless design
Acer Aspire M5-581T 15.6" Intel Core i5-3337U 1.8GHz / 6GB / 500GB
By using power-efficient components that don't produce large amounts of heat, it's possible to create a device with no cooling fans. This results in a much quieter (or even silent) operation.
5.width

365.8mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Has a flip and fold design
Acer Aspire M5-581T 15.6" Intel Core i5-3337U 1.8GHz / 6GB / 500GB
A flip and fold design allows you to fold the screen over the keyboard and transform the device into a tablet, without splitting the device into two pieces.

Display

1.resolution

1366 x 768px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.has anti-reflection coating

Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.

Performance

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
Acer Aspire M5-581T 15.6" Intel Core i5-3337U 1.8GHz / 6GB / 500GB
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.CPU speed

2 x 1.8GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
6.has an external memory slot
Acer Aspire M5-581T 15.6" Intel Core i5-3337U 1.8GHz / 6GB / 500GB
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

Connectivity
