Dirty easily. There is one thing to note. The use of aluminum material on the palm rest would sometimes leave traces of oil when the hands were sweaty. Therefore, it should be more diligent to clean it.

The position of the power button is less comfortable. Overall, we almost did not find flaws in Acer E5-553G. Obstacles such as the keyboard is noisy and fragile material on its predecessor (Acer E5-552G) is no longer felt. However, the existence of the power button on the upper right side of the keyboard is often depressed. Perhaps it is only the influence of habit. 


Port is complete, the processor and GPU are fairly reliable, as well as RAM and storage are quite relieved to be able to make this notebook as a gaming notebook your choice though this notebook is not included in the Predator series. In addition, a wide screen size makes it more convenient to watch a movie or just read comics.
