    I have a new Notebook Acer Aspire E 15. When I wanted to download its manual from the Acer website (http://www.acer.com/ac/de/DE/content/drivers) there was no such Notebook listed, respectively I could not found one. I filled in the series number of my Notebook and the name, make shown was Aspire E5-573.

    What does that mean? What is the sense of it using completely different names for the same Notebook?

    They often use name that reflect what software was pre-installed.
    And different locations.

    Sorry, I am not quite sure to understand.

    I am in Germany.

    Thank you for the instructions.

    On the back of the Notebook I found Aspire E5-573. But on the package, in the brochure it is named Acer Aspire E 15. Why is that?

    As an example, say I made a computer WXYZ
    I may make it for several markets and with different software versions installed.

    WXYZxpen and WXYZ7ge would be the same hardware but the first would have been pre-installed English XP and the second German Windows 7

    Hmmm, well, yes, I could understand that, but different names within Germany? In the shops here this Notebook is called Acer Aspire E 15, on the package is printed Acer Aspire E 15, in the brochures also and suddenly the same Notebook on its back is labeled Aspire E5-573. It is the first time I noticed something like that. In Germany (as it will be in other countries also) this Notebook is supplied with different hardware (different hdds and such), software with the same name Acer Aspire E 15. Very confusing.

    Many products have a real model number that specifically identifies that exact model and then have a simplier advertising model number. People prefer to buy an HP Envy 15 as opposed to the HP DV7-1672us.

    Marketing never really has any logic behind it. It is ALL about appearance and impressions.

    Yes, yes, and may be a bit confusing me.

    Many thanks again.
