Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-568E
With its elegant thin and light silver frame, it has an elegant and discreet look.
This Ultrabook has a good connection made up of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers s’ performing up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
The keyboard can be backlit which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen is adorned with an anti-reflective treatment which makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition.
Thanks to Acer Bluelight Shield technology, the blue light emitted by the screen is also attenuated.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-568E
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-568E is for those looking for a 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday mobile use.
On the storage side, Acer offers here a hybrid solution with a high total capacity of 1.2 TB above average.
We thus benefit both from great fluidity thanks to the SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software, and from a large capacity thanks to the 1000 GB hard drive.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness than a simple hard drive. This implies much faster starts / stops and launches of software for example.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light computer. It relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low-consumption Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor.
It houses the Intel UHD 620 graphics solution within it. Modest, it allows you to watch photos and videos.
Clearly, you get good overall performance with this sleek silver Ultrabook which is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming, however.
If we often have to carry out heavy processing in processor resources, we will rather turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
Finally in terms of autonomy, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose thinness and weight content facilitate transport.
