Its black brushed metal frame gives it an elegant and discreet design.
Acer Bluelight Shield technology helps to reduce the blue light emitted by the screen.
The connectivity built into this versatile Ultrabook is good, consisting of 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 the easily connect to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Regarding the presence of a backlight system keys chiclet keyboard and a biometric reader for identification by fingerprint recognition, Acer contradicts on the subject, mentioning the presence of 2 on one side and their absence of the other. When in doubt, hope for the least.
Anti-reflective, the screen offers better visibility than a glossy slab in a bright environment (ex: outdoor). It lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and especially to video because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16 / 9th format.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire A515-54G-53S4
The Acer Aspire A515-54G-53S4 is a compact 15-inch high definition notebook designed for versatile mobile use.
It benefits from a dual graphics solution consisting of a GeForce MX250 dedicated card and an Intel UHD 620 processor-integrated solution, both for viewing photos and videos. NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology switches automatically and in real time between the two, as needed.
To promote autonomy, the Intel UHD 620 is maximized by Optimus despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient. On the standby side, set about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
Optimus activates the GeForce MX250 when it comes to performing graphics that are considered too heavy for the Intel UHD 620. The GeForce MX250 is able to support games not too greedy in graphics resources as long as you consents to settings under demanding opuses.
Also thanks to its low-consumption Whiskey Lake Quad Core i5-8265U processor and 8GB of RAM, this thin and light Ultrabook delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users.
To regularly perform heavy processor resources, however, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power Intel processor.
In any case the onboard SSD storage helps make this PC significantly more responsive and fluid than if you were dealing with a hard drive. For example, thanks to the SSD, startups / stops and launching applications are much faster than with a hard disk.
It must be said that a SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more robust, less energy consuming and silent. In addition here we take advantage of a SSD competing with hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB, which we would like to be more frequent.
Finally with its weight less than 2 kg and its finesse, this versatile nomadic Ultrabook is easy to transport.
