Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire A317-51K-33RR
The Acer Aspire A317-51K-33RR is a 17-inch notebook designed for everyday use.
It stands out clearly by its storage. Hybrid, it offers both a significant capacity thanks to the hard drive of 1000 GB as well as a great responsiveness thanks to the 256 GB SSD.
In practice, the SSD is intended to accommodate the system and the main software, the rest taking place on the hard drive.
In any case, the SSD guarantees a better fluidity than a hard disk with faster starts / stops and launches of applications.
The SSD so well shoulder the heart of this computer consisting of 4 GB of RAM and a processor Core i3-7020U low consumption Kaby Lake which shows its limits under software demanding processor resources.
Such a duo is suitable for multitasking content and common use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation. As it is not supported by a dedicated GPU, it is not designed for gaming and more generally for heavy graphics.
However, thanks to the modest performance of the Intel UHD 620 part housed within the Core i3, we can of course watch photos and videos on this laptop.
As for autonomy, plan about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose transport is not easy because of its weight of 2.7 kg and its large format.
