Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-564F
It sports an elegant and discreet appearance with its thin and light black chassis.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a Convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it.
The screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Its viewing angles both horizontal and vertical are important thanks to its IPS technology. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen offers better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
In addition, Acer Bluelight Shield technology is present to attenuate the blue light emitted by the screen.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-564F
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-564F is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
It takes advantage of 1.2 TB of storage, large capacity higher than the average.
In practice, the fast 256 GB SSD is designed to house the system as well as the main software, the rest taking place on the hard disk providing a large space of 1000 GB.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light PC is much more reactive and fluid in everyday life than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. This benefits in particular from faster start / stop and launch of software.
The heart of this computer is up to the task. Composed of a low consumption Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM, very significant in multitasking, its performance is able to satisfy many users.
It also allows you to view photos and videos thanks to the benefits, admittedly modest, of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5. As it is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card, which is not surprising given its positioning, this Ultrabook is not designed for demanding graphics work like games.
However, it has the advantage of being fairly thin and of adopting a contained weight facilitating its transport. On the autonomy side, put on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
