Performance, autonomy of Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R8E9
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-44-R8E9 is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use on the go.
It is efficient, especially in everyday use such as in office automation and surfing the Internet, because it takes advantage of a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 4300U processor low consumption Renoir Quad Core.
Thanks to its 4 cores, this Ryzen 3 is close to a previous generation Ryzen 5 3500U Picasso. Consequently, the services that it delivers are able to satisfy many users.
However, this thin and light laptop PC is not designed for games and more generally demanding graphics work because it does not include a dedicated graphics card.
The Radeon Vega 5 graphics solution housed in the Ryzen 3 4300U Quad Core Renoir, however, obviously allows you to watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, Acer has chosen an SSD here. With its 512 GB, the SSD rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity while being less energy-consuming, silent, more robust and much faster.
On a daily basis thanks to the SSD, fluidity and responsiveness are much better than if we were dealing with a simple hard drive. This implies much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of applications thanks to the SSD.
Obviously if you need additional space, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this laptop whose thinness and controlled weight make it easy to transport.
