Question design, the Acer Aspire 3 A314-31-P1BU favors sobriety with an all-black shell but heals the finishes with a cover with raised grid and a brushed metal keyboard surround. The set gains elegance thanks to a refined silhouette (19.9 mm). Unsurprisingly, the keyboard is not backlit and the touchpad is clickable but the chassis has the advantage of providing a maintenance hatch to change the storage.
Autonomy should reach 5 hours in Internet browsing with active WiFi, it is in the low average.
Guarantor of a responsive system, the hybrid storage solution is a force on this configuration. Thanks to the dedicated 128 GB SSD , on which the operating system and most of the programs and games will be based, the execution of the system is particularly smooth and the times of loadings / transfers are considerably shortened. Opposite, the hard drive of 1000 GB will be responsible for hosting all of your toy library to never run out of storage space.
This type of storage is all the more valuable because it supports a Pentium Quad Core N4200mobile processor supported by 4 GB of RAM . In practice, this duo will easily support the current use of Internet browsing, the Office suite or video playback but will not be able to deal with much more demanding. Forget also the multitasking pushed because of the RAM in small quantity.
On the side of the screen, the report is consistent with what we can expect from a 14 inches at this price, namely a standard definition (1366 x 768 pixels) and the support of a slab TN at narrow viewing angles and average colorimetry. In addition, the glossy CineCrystal slab will heal the color rendering and sharpness of the characters but will tend to reflect the ambient brightness.
To finish on the connectivity, she is rather honest. the sides of the PC receive an SD card reader, an HDMI output as well as three USB ports including a USB 3.0 but no USB Type-C port. To promote data transfer, Gigabit Ethernet and the latest generation of Wifi AC module are also in the game, as well as a Bluetooth 4.0 chip.
