Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-55U5
It has a sober and elegant look with its thin and light light silver frame.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile Ultrabook is well equipped with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its wireless Wi-Fi modules ax ( more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
A backlighting system is also fitted to the keys of the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing them correctly in the event of a limited light atmosphere.
The screen will be of interest to lovers of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. It also has significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles because it adopts IPS technology. In addition, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel, which is all the more appreciable as it wants to be nomadic.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-55U5
The Acer Aspire 5 A514-54-55U5 is a compact High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its lightness, this Ultrabook can last approximately 8 hours on battery in terms of battery life.
It must be said that it relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Tiger Lake i5-1135G7 Quad Core processor. Good point, here it is coupled with a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above average. Very appreciable in multitasking, it allows you to clearly see coming in terms of RAM.
Thanks to this core, good general performance is obtained capable of satisfying many users.
However, it should be borne in mind that opting for a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card is judicious if the objective is often to carry out heavy work in processor resources and / or graphic.
In any case, despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card, it is possible to view photos and videos but also to run games that do not require too much 3D resources.
It is thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution that we tested . Housed in the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake, the Iris Xe is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
On the storage side, Acer opts here for an SSD that competes in capacity with the standard hard drives with its 512 GB. In addition, remember that an SSD is silent but also less energy, more robust and much faster.
If ever you need additional space, you can obviously use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops than with a hard drive just like the processing and launching of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
