Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R9PZ
With its thin and light light silver design, this laptop sports a sleek and unobtrusive appearance.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example but also 3 USB 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 you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
We appreciate being able to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.
Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate the screen because it adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16/9th format. In addition, as it is equipped with IPS technology, the screen is adorned with significant viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.
The blue light it emits is further attenuated by up to 30% by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R9PZ
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45-R9PZ is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
On the autonomy side, it is indeed able to hold about 8 hours of operation on battery in light use, which is all the more appreciable as its lightness and finesse facilitate its transport.
Logically, it integrates energy-efficient components like its SSD storage.
Because an SSD consumes less power than a hard disk. It is also quiet, more robust and much faster.
On a daily basis, we obtain a much better responsiveness and fluidity with an SSD than with a hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, starts/stops are much faster, especially as are processing and launching applications, and we reach the maps of online games faster.
Certainly no dedicated graphics card is embedded but thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 module directly integrated into the processor, you can still watch photos and videos and play light titles.
The processor is a low-power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne Hexa Core that is paired with 8GB of RAM to provide good overall performance able to suit many users.
The Ryzen 5 deploys its full potential under software exploiting multi-core, such as photo editing or video conversion.
The capacity of 512 GB that this laptop offers via the SSD corresponds to what hard drives offer as standard in this area.
But of course in case 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.
