Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-7900
It sports an elegant and discreet design with its silver anodized aluminum frame.
This thin and light Ultrabook has a good connection made up of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remote, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers achieved up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
As expected on this type of PC with regard to its positioning, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
With its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content, especially videos. As it is anti-reflective, it offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Acer Bluelight Shield technology is responsible for reducing the blue light emitted by the screen.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-7900
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-7900 is for those looking for a 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday use on the go.
Thanks to its weight under 2 kg and its finesse, this Ultrabook sees its easy transport. In terms of autonomy, expect about 8 hours of battery operation in light use.
To do this, this Ultrabook relies on energy-efficient components such as SSD storage that is more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more robust, silent and much faster.
Here we are dealing with a 512 GB SSD, a capacity that rivals hard drives. And if you ever need more space, you can obviously rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
The SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. As a result, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software or even an arrival read quickly on the cards of online games.
Because it is possible to play on this Ultrabook if one is satisfied with titles not too demanding in 3D resources because it is equipped with the Iris Plus Graphics G7 graphics part. Integrated into the processor, the Iris Plus G7 is positioned below a dedicated GeForce MX250 card. It therefore obviously also allows viewing photos and videos.
The processor in question is a low-power Quad Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake that we tested . It is associated with 8 GB of RAM.
Thus, good general performance is obtained capable of satisfying many users. That being said, to often carry out heavy work in processor resources, it will be better to opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
