Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R274
With its thin and light silver frame, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
This versatile laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports, its useful HDMI video output. in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example as well as its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if the USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Too bad not to deal with Wi-Fi ax, but we can not fault this PC in terms of its benefits.
It allows for example to authenticate on the system by fingerprint recognition thanks to the integrated biometric reader, and this via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard, for its part, has a practical backlighting system for the keys to distinguish them correctly in low ambient light.
The screen takes advantage of IPS technology. Therefore, its viewing angles both vertical and horizontal are important and its colorimetry more faithful than the average. The screen lends itself very well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Acer Bluelight Shield technology is also there to reduce the blue light emitted by the screen.
Performance, autonomy of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R274
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R274 is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for general purpose mobile use.
Equipped with a good amount of 8 GB RAM appreciable in multitasking and an AMD APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U low consumption Hexa Core Renoir, this thin and light computer delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
In addition this laptop sees its responsiveness clearly enhanced by its SSD storage. As a reminder, an SSD is more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock resistant, silent and much faster. In addition, the SSD on board here offers a high capacity of 1 TB competing without worry with hard disks.
The SSD guarantees, for example, that software starts / stops and launches faster than a hard drive, but also that it arrives faster on online game cards.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose transport is facilitated by the weight contained and the smoothness, count on approximately 6 hours of operation on battery in light use while waiting for more concrete tests.
