Chassis, connectors, Acer Aspire 3 A317-51-312W screen
It sports a relatively elegant and discreet design with its black frame brushed metal finish. It can open 180 degrees, completely flat, and has BluelightShield technology that reduces the blue light emitted by the screen.
The screen will appeal to a maximum of users with its IPS technology that offers comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more accurate colorimetry than average. With its precise Full HD resolution superior to the 1600×900 standard and its 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content and particularly for videos. Thanks to its antireflection treatment, the screen is also less tiring for the eyes than a glossy and more readable tile in bright environment (ex: outside).
The connectivity built into this notebook is correct. Positioned mainly on the left, it consists of a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 for remote connections and communications, audio ports and Ethernet as well as 3 USB all compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug on a device USB 3.0.
Moreover, while it tends to disappear because of the finesse and dematerialization modes, an optical unit is integrated in this computer. It allows you to read and burn CDs and DVDs.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 3 A317-51-312W
The Acer Aspire 3 A317-51-312W is a 17-inch high definition notebook designed for everyday use.
In this domain as in office and Internet surfing, it delivers good overall performance because it relies on a low-consumption Comet Lake Core i3-10110U Turbo low power processor coupled with a good amount of RAM 8 GB higher than the average and very useful in multitasking.
The Intel UHD 620 graphics solution housed in the Core i3 Turbo Comet Lake also allows you to watch photos and videos. On the other hand, as it is not supported by a dedicated GPU, this black computer is not designed for heavy graphics such as games.
On the other hand, it benefits from an SSD storage that guarantees a significantly more responsive and fluid operation than if it were based on a simple hard disk.
For example, we can take advantage of start / stop times and launch applications much faster.
Remember that a SSD is more energy efficient than a hard drive but also more robust, quiet and much faster. Here, however, as is often the case with embedded SSDs, the proposed capacity is lower than the standard for hard drives.
We still found a 256 GB SSD sufficient for many uses. But if it’s too fair, you can add a second SSD or hard drive via the 2.5-inch free slot. And using an external storage device as a USB 3.0 device to get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight close to 3 kg and the large format do not facilitate transport, bet about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
