Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R2FW
All dressed in black, this thin and light laptop PC has a sober look.
The connections integrated into this PC are correct, including a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this computer to a monitor or a TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The screen stands out with its more precise Full HD definition, clearly superior to the 1366×768 standard. It is thus particularly well suited to the display of High Definition content, such as videos, since it also adopts a 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R2FW
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R2FW is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
In this area as in Internet surfing and office automation, it delivers good performance because it relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking. But also on a low consumption AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3250U Picasso processor.
However, it should be noted that, like the Intel Core i3 (Turbo), the Ryzen 3 show their limits in applications that are greedy in processor resources.
In addition, and logically considering its positioning, this thin and light laptop PC does not include a dedicated graphics card. It nevertheless allows of course to watch photos and videos thanks to the graphic services of the modest Radeon Vega 3 integrated into the Ryzen 3.
To support the heart of this sober black computer on a daily basis, Acer chooses a silent SSD but also less energy than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive, which implies, for example, much faster starts / stops and software launches.
Here we find onboard a 256 GB SSD, sufficient capacity for a number of uses but lower than the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more, you can obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this PC whose weight less than 2 kg and thinness facilitate transport.
