Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-34PA
It sports a sober design with its Black Schist chassis.
This Ultrabook has a correct connection including a practical HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, ports audio and Ethernet as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device .
USB 3.1 Type-C point however, which some may regret.
To attenuate the blue light emitted by the screen, BluelightShield technology is present.
The screen adopts a definition of 1366×768 and a 16: 9 format suitable for playing videos, classic characteristics. It is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable in a light environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes over a long period.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-34PA
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-34PA is a compact 15-inch laptop for everyday use.
It has SSD storage. It rivals hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being silent, more resistant to shocks, less energy-consuming and above all much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, this PC sees its reactivity clearly reinforced on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. This notably benefits from much faster start / stop and launch of applications.
The SSD supports the heart of this Ultrabook, which delivers good benefits in everyday use, such as in office automation and surfing the Internet. It is indeed based on a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very useful in multitasking and an Ice Lake processor low consumption Core i3-1005G1 Turbo.
Remember that the Core i3 Turbo is significantly more efficient than the Core i3 without Turbo (Core i3-7xxxU and lower).
Of course, you can watch photos and videos on this thin and light Ultrabook thanks to the benefits, admittedly modest, of the Intel UHD 620 part housed within the Core i3 Turbo.
Since the Intel UHD 620 is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card, this simple computer is not designed for demanding graphics work such as gaming.
As for autonomy, bet on about 5 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the weight contained.
