Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 3 A317-52-37MQ
Open to 180 ° completely flat, this all-black computer has a discreet look.
This laptop has a correct connection consisting of a practical HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing faster transfers than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
In addition, one can read and write CDs and DVDs with this PC thanks to the optical unit integrated on the right side. This appreciable functionality is all the more so as it has become rare in recent years due to the modes of dematerialization and finesse.
The screen adopts a definition of 1600×900, a 16 / 9th format lending itself well to video playback as well as a brilliant treatment that gives punch to the colors but is sensitive to reflections in bright environments (eg outdoors). Clearly, classic characteristics for a 17 inch.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 3 A317-52-37MQ
The Acer Aspire 3 A317-52-37MQ is a 17 inch laptop designed for everyday use.
It will be of interest to those who wish to obtain a high storage capacity because it has a hard disk with a large capacity of 1000 GB capable of accommodating multiple files and software.
In addition, thanks to its good amount of 8 GB RAM, which is very useful for multitasking and its low-consumption Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 Turbo processor, this PC delivers good performance in everyday use, as in office automation and surfing the Internet.
It should be noted that, of course, the Core i3s show their limits under software that consumes processor resources but is clearly more efficient than the non-Turbo Core i3s (Core i3-7xxxU and predecessors).
Logically in view of its positioning, this computer does not have a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games. However, with this PC, you can obviously watch photos and videos thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 part integrated into the Core i3.
As for autonomy, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight and size do not make it the most easily transportable. However, a 17 inch is very comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
