The general performance that it provides is suitable for many users since it has a good amount of 8 GB RAM very appreciable in multitasking as well as an AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U processor low consumption Picasso.
In addition, this processor integrates the Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics part. However, it is positioned at the level of a dedicated entry-level graphics card and is therefore significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
As a result, with this thin and light laptop PC, you can watch photos and videos, but also play games that do not require 3D resources.
On the storage side, Acer opts for an SSD that rivals hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy-consuming, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, this computer benefits from much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of applications or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
More generally, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Obviously if you ever need additional space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers. A 2.5-inch slot is also free to add a second SSD or a hard drive.
As for the autonomy of this portable computer as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its contained weight and its finesse, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
