It adopts a sober design with its thin and light Black Schist chassis which accommodates 2 panels below for easy access to storage and RAM.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is correct, consisting of a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this PC to a TV or a monitor, for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications , audio and Ethernet ports or even 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect it a USB 3.0 device.
Too bad, however, that the USB 3.1 Type-C is missing.
In any case, lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate dealing with a screen adopting a precise Full HD definition higher than the 1366×768 standard as well as a 16: 9 format.

Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-52ZT
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-52ZT is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It actually delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users as it relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful for multitasking and a low power Intel Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor.
As no dedicated graphics card is built into this thin and light laptop, it is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming. On the other hand, thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 Ice Lake, you can watch photos and videos.
In terms of storage, Acer opts for SSD storage with a capacity of 512 GB that rivals hard drives in this area. But as a bonus, let’s emphasize that an SSD is more robust, more energy efficient, silent and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, this sober black Ultrabook ensures a much more responsive and fluid operation than with a simple hard drive. As a result, thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of application launches much faster than with a hard drive, as are starts / stops.
Of course if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 5 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the delicacy and the weight contained at less than 2 kg.
