Chassis, connectors, Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-55G1 display
It sports a sober and elegant design with its black brushed metal finish.
It has Acer Bluelight Shield technology to mitigate the effects of blue light emitted by the screen.
This versatile Ultrabook boasts good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac modules and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet ports and audio as well as 3 USB all compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantee transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if connected to it USB 3.0 devices.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and especially to videos by its definition Full HD accurate and its format 16 / 9th. As it is equipped with IPS technology, its horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important and its colorimetry more faithful than average. In addition, the screen is anti-reflective. As a result, it is more legible in a bright environment (eg outside) than a bright slab.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-55G1
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-55G1 is a 15-inch compact High Definition notebook for versatile mobile use.
It has a 512 GB SSD storage that rivals hard drives in terms of capacity while being much faster, more energy efficient, more shock resistant and quieter.
Result thanks to the SSD, we get a significantly more responsive and fluid operation than if we were dealing with a hard disk. Starting / stopping and launching applications are thus much faster.
The SSD accompanies very well the heart of this thin and light computer that delivers good overall performance. It consists in fact of a processor Quad Core i5-8265U low consumption Whiskey Lake associated with 8 GB of RAM.
As for graphics processing, we are dealing with the Intel UHD 620 integrated Quad Core i5 and GeForce MX250 dedicated card. NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology switches automatically and in real time between the two as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible Intel UHD 620 despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce MX250 certainly more greedy but in return more powerful.
The GeForce MX250 is activated by Optimus to perform graphic processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 620. This dedicated GPU is able to run games not too greedy graphics resources for adaptations under opus titles demanding to \’get good playability. Of course, there is no need to look at photos and videos on this computer, either with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX250.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook easy enough to carry for a 15 inches because of its fineness and its weight content under 2 Kg, plan about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
