Acer specs https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/con....GMSAA.001
The Acer Aspire E5 series SHOULD have an easily accessible m.2 slot for an SSD upgrade although I've not verified that for this model. I have the Aspire E5-575-33BM and F5-573-58VX for which this is true so I'm fairly confident it's the same for this model. The bottom bay can be opened with just a screwdriver and allows access to RAM, the m.2 and 2.5" bay. No need for pry tools. At worst, you can take out the HDD and put in a 2.5" SATA SSD.
A10-9600P performs like a 5th gen i5 or 7th gen i3 ULV (15W) CPU according to PassMark, but with a much better iGPU.
I know people crap on Acer but I think it's a good value.
