It sports an elegant and discreet design with its fine and light light silver frame.
In terms of connectivity, this laptop is properly equipped with its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 modules for remote connections and communications, its audio ports and Ethernet as well as its 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
With its precise Full HD definition superior to the 1366×768 standard and its 16: 9 format, the screen is well suited to displaying High Definition content, including videos. Anti-reflective coating, it also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R9A1
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R9A1 is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It has SSD storage. With its 512 GB, it rivals hard drives in terms of capacity. But as a bonus, the SSD is silent, more energy efficient, more shock resistant and much faster.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much more responsive and fluid operation on a daily basis than if we were dealing with a simple hard drive. In practice, we thus benefit from much faster starts / stops and launches of software, and we can reach the cards of online games faster, for example.
Indeed, one can play with this thin and light PC if one is satisfied with titles not very greedy in 3D resources. Without a dedicated GPU, this laptop takes advantage of the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution housed within the processor. It is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card and is therefore significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
You can therefore also watch photos and videos on this elegant computer which delivers good general performance and is suitable for many users. It is indeed equipped with a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking and an AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U low consumption Picasso processor.
Obviously if we get to the point where we need additional storage space, we have the option of relying on an external storage unit. You can then opt for a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, bet on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use for this computer whose weight less than 2 kg and the smoothness facilitate the transport, making it as easy as for an Ultrabook.
