Nomadic with its 9-hour battery life, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-72V2 with 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen is a thin and light versatile silver Ultrabook. It benefits from a fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB which reinforces its responsiveness like its good amount of 16 GB RAM. Efficient in current use thanks to its Quad Core i7 Comet Lake processor, it has an NVIDIA graphics card to run games that aren\’t too greedy. In addition, it has interesting features such as a fingerprint reader, a keyboard backlighting system and Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-72V2
With its light silver frame, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile Ultrabook is well equipped with its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its practical HDMI video output for connect it easily to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB 3.1 Type-C but also its 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to \’at 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 devices into it.
A biometric reader is also integrated, which allows authentication on the system by fingerprint recognition.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also displays colors more faithfully than average. It is also suitable for High Definition content such as videos by its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Note that the blue light emitted by the screen is attenuated by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-72V2
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-72V2 is aimed at those who are looking for a compact 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
Thanks to its thinness and its contained weight, this PC is quite easy to transport. It will be of even more interest to nomads as side autonomy, it can hold about 9 hours of battery operation in light use.
It must be said that it is based on energy-efficient components like its low-power Quad Core i7-10510U Comet Lake processor. Here it is coupled with a good amount of RAM 16 GB above average.
Result with this PC, we obtain general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, to carry out work requiring processor resources on a regular basis, it is advantageous to turn to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
On the storage side, here too autonomy is favored in addition to speed. We find an integrated SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB competing with hard drives while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks, silent but also much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, software launches and processing. We can also, for example, arrive faster on the maps of online games.
We can just play with this thin and light PC as long as we are satisfied with titles not too greedy in graphic resources. The dedicated GeForce MX350 NVIDIA Pascal card is indeed integrated and activated automatically and in real time by the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
The Intel UHD 620 is preferred to the maximum by Optimus despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy. Just like the GeForce MX350, it of course allows you to view photos and videos.
