Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R52A
With its thin and light black case, it has an elegant and discreet look.
This versatile laptop PC benefits from a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output 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, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the \’USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate for their part to enjoy a screen adopting a precise Full HD definition and a 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Also like Acer Bluelight Shield technology, the blue light that the screen emits is attenuated.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R52A
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R52A is a slim and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It benefits from a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking but also from a high-performance low-power processor, the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U Renoir Hexa Core.
The general performances delivered by this duo are able to satisfy many users.
And all the more so since the Ryzen 5 4500U Hexa Core Renoir integrates the Radeon Vega 6 graphics solution. However, it is significantly more efficient than the traditional Intel UHD 620 part of Intel processors and is positioned at the level of a dedicated graphics card for \’entry level.
As a result, with this sober black laptop, you can watch photos and videos as well as play titles that don\’t consume much graphic resources.
On the storage side, Acer opts here for an SSD which has the advantage of being silent but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster software launches as well as processing and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
But if the 256 GB offered by the SSD is sufficient for many uses, this capacity is lower than the standard of hard disks.
However, if you need additional space, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this portable computer as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its contained weight and its finesse, expect about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
