Students of all ages are gearing up for back to school shopping, whether it be for supplies, clothes, course materials or technology.

For older students starting college, grad school or any sort of advanced studies, a proper laptop has become a necessity for most courses, and it's no surprise that shopping for one can be one of the most expensive items to check off on your back to school list.

With popular models costing into the thousands, finding a model that's both affordable and high-functioning can be a challenge, but the Acer Aspire 5 (available on Amazon) manages to check all the boxes.

Garnering an impressive 4.5 stars across nearly 180 reviews, the sleek model boasts a 15.6" Full HD IPS screen and an AMD Ryzen 3 3200U Dual-Core Processor. 

One customer gushed that 'the battery life is really long, I love how bright the screen is, and my favorite thing so far is the keyboard' while another called the device 'an absolute steal.'

Best part? The laptop is currently on sale right now through Prime for an additional $40 off, bringing the price to under $315.
