Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R1UB
It sports a sober and elegant design thanks to its thin and light silver chassis.
In terms of connectivity, this computer is well equipped. There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
As a biometric reader is integrated, we can authenticate on the system by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.
A backlight system also equips the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical, better to distinguish its keys when the ambient light is limited.
As it adopts IPS technology, the screen has comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles and displays more faithful colors than the average. Its anti-reflective treatment makes it more readable than a glossy panel in a light environment (ex: outdoor) and it will interest lovers of High Definition content and in particular videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition (superior to the standard 1366×768) and its 16 format. / 9th.
Thanks to Acer Bluelight Shield technology, the blue light emitted by the screen is attenuated.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R1UB
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R1UB is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for general purpose mobile use.
Thanks to its SSD storage, its reactivity is significantly improved on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. We thus benefit from a better reactivity which results, for example, in much faster starts / stops and launches of software or by a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being less energy-consuming, more shock-resistant and quieter. In addition here, we take advantage of a 512 GB SSD, capacity rivaling hard drives.
And if you need additional space, you can obviously always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device is therefore an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
In any case, the SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light computer whose general performance is able to suit many users. Judge instead: it relies on a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very significant in multitasking as well as a Hexa Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U low consumption Renoir processor.
The latter houses within it the Radeon Vega 6 graphics solution which has the advantage of being significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors. In fact, the Vega 6 is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card. Because of this, in addition to being able to watch photos and videos on this elegant silver PC, you can also play low-power titles.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use (pending more concrete tests) for this computer whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport.
