Compact thin and light but not as much as many 14-inch on the market, this laptop sports a sleek and discreet look with its light silver design.

It runs on Windows 11S, a security-focused edition by only allowing the installation of apps from the Windows Store. If desired, however, we can get out of S mode to migrate to Windows 11 classic but then returning to Windows 11S is impossible.

The connectivity integrated into this laptop is correct at this price level, consisting of a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote communications and connections, an audio port or 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

The screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16/9th format suitable for playing videos. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab and less tiring over a long period.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 1 A114-21-A8MF

The Acer Aspire 1 A114-21-A8MF is a stylish compact laptop for everyday use.

In fact, its benefits are very modest and are suitable for Internet surfing and basic office automation mainly, because it relies on 4 GB of RAM as well as an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) 3020e processor very low consumption Dali entry-level.

Because the latter is quickly pushy under applications a little demanding in processor resources, which translates into slowdowns.

Multitasking is possible with this laptop as long as it is contained enough. In any case, you can watch photos and videos thanks to the Radeon RX Vega 3 graphics part housed directly in the Dali.

On the storage side, Acer chooses an eMMC flash solution that is more powerful than a hard drive but less than an SSD. It has the advantage of improving responsiveness compared to the first, which is perceived for example at start/stop and the launch of software that is done faster.

Logically at this price point, the storage capacity is limited to 128 GB, which is significantly lower than the standard offered by hard drives (500 GB).

Of course in the event that 128 GB is too fair, we can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.

As for the autonomy, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use for this computer whose transport is facilitated by the finesse, the compactness and the lightness.
