Chassis, connectors, Acer Aspire 3 A317-51G-76RV display
Its black frame finish brushed metal openable 180 ° (totally flat) gives it a sober and elegant design.
The connectivity built into this notebook is correct, consisting of Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect wirelessly remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to connect easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, with USB 3.0 providing up to 10x faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged in above.
What a pity, however, to note the lack of USB 3.1 Type-C incomprehensible on this type of machine as the lack of backlight keyboard, not mentioned by Acer for this PC and therefore likely absent as on many Aspire 3 A317-51 which is regrettable.
Some will appreciate in any case to read and burn CDs and DVDs with this PC. Certainly, this seems common but it is not for a while since the modes of dematerialization and finesse resulting in the disappearance of the optical unit of a maximum of laptop.
Anti-reflective coating, the screen offers better visibility than a bright slab in bright environment (ex: outdoor) and is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use. Its IPS technology guarantees important vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more accurate colorimetry than average. Moreover with its precise Full HD definition and its 16 / 9th format, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content including videos.
Note that the blue light emitted by the screen is attenuated by BluelightShield technology.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 3 A317-51G-76RV
The Acer Aspire 3 A317-51G-76RV targets those looking for a 17-inch responsive laptop for versatile use.
It stands out clearly by its SSD storage whose large capacity of 1 TB competing with records is still far too rare.
As a reminder, an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more shock resistant, more energy efficient and quiet.
Result thanks to the SSD, we obtain a daily operation significantly more reactive and fluid than with a simple hard disk. For example, we benefit from faster start-ups / stops and software launches.
The SSD is the heart of this computer. Consisting of a Comet Lake low power Quad Core i7-10510U processor, it provides general performance that can satisfy many users.
For those who need to regularly perform heavy work in processor resources, however, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low-power processor.
This computer also benefits from NVIDIA Optimus technology that evaluates the graphics needs in real time. In function, if necessary, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Intel UHD 620 integrated into the Comet Lake Quad Core i7 and the GeForce MX250 dedicated board.
Optimus maximizes the Intel UHD 620 despite its modest performance because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy over the greedy and powerful GeForce MX250.
In practice the GeForce MX250 is able to run many games as long as we agree to make some concessions under the titles demanding graphics resources. Whether with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX250, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.
Finally in terms of autonomy, plan on about 5 hours of battery operation away from a socket in light use for this computer whose transport is not easy because of its weight close to 3 Kg.
