In this area, as in office automation and surfing the Internet, it delivers good performance because it relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM coupled to a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Core i3-1115G4 processor.
This offers the advantage of integrating the Intel UHD G4, a graphics solution whose performance is superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Thanks to the Intel G4, you can watch photos and videos but also play games. titles that do not consume much graphic resources.
On the storage side, Acer has chosen an SSD which has the advantages of being silent but also less energy-consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and software launches.
Here we find a built-in SSD of 512 GB, a capacity in phase with what hard disks offer as standard.
But obviously if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
