Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A514-53G-58VU
It sports a sober and elegant design with its thin and light light silver case.
This versatile Ultrabook has good connectivity made up of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a HDMI video output useful for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 peripherals into it.
You can authenticate biometrically on this laptop PC via the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
In addition, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is convenient to distinguish its keys better in case of reduced ambient light.
The screen for its part lends itself very well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Its anti-reflective coating also shows it to be more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles.
In addition, the blue light that the screen emits is attenuated by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A514-53G-58VU
The Acer Aspire 5 A514-53G-58VU is a compact High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, this versatile Ultrabook will interest nomads because it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use in terms of battery life.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components like its low-consumption processor, an Intel Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 with Intel UHD 620 graphics. It is here coupled with a good amount of RAM. 8 GB.
This core delivers good general performance capable of satisfying a number of users. In addition, it comes with the dedicated GeForce MX350 NVIDIA Pascal graphics card.
On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the Intel UHD 620 and the GeForce MX350, as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 620 despite its modest performance because it is energy efficient and thus promotes battery life compared to the GeForce MX350 certainly more greedy but in return more powerful.
The GeForce MX350 is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 620. Thanks to the GeForce MX350, you can run games that do not require too much graphics resources on this thin and light laptop PC.
Obviously, whether with the integrated Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX350, you can watch photos and videos.
The integrated SSD storage clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops as well as the processing and launching of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to the standard of hard drives.
Of course, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.
