Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R7S5
It sports a sober and elegant look with its fine, light silver design.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile PC is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if peripherals USB 3.0 connected to it
As a biometric reader is integrated, one can authenticate on the system by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.
A backlight system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys when the ambient light is limited.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Expect, however, that its colorimetry is in the middle and therefore below that of higher-end IPS panels. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny screen. With its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, it also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content and in particular to videos.
The blue light emitted by the screen is attenuated by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, autonomy of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R7S5
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44G-R7S5 is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for general purpose mobile use.
It delivers good general performances able to satisfy many users thanks to its processor AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U low consumption Renoir and its good amount of RAM of 8 GB useful in multitasking.
This duo is supported in graphics by the dedicated AMD Radeon RX 640 Polaris card. It is capable of running games that do not consume too much graphics resources and can of course also view photos and videos.
Thin and light, this computer benefits from an SSD storage which competes with hard disks in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being silent, more robust, less energy-consuming and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this laptop is in practice much more responsive and fluid than if it were based on a hard drive. It guarantees much faster application launches and starts / stops for example.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose thinness and contained weight facilitate transport.
