Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R2LW
With its thin and light black frame, it has a discreet look.
This versatile laptop PC is equipped with a good connection with its USB-C, its useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient as Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports or even its 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
It is possible to authenticate by fingerprint recognition via the biometric reader and Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen is equipped with Acer Bluelight Shield technology which attenuates the blue light it emits.
It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format as well as a precise Full HD definition.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, but its colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R2LW
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R2LW is a 15 inch High Definition 15 inch laptop designed for general general purpose use.
It is equipped with the dedicated AMD Polaris Radeon RX 640 graphics card capable of supporting games that are not too greedy in 3D resources. Of course, it also allows viewing photos and videos.
The heart of this thin and light laptop PC is able to suit many users in terms of general performance because it is based on 8 GB of RAM coupled with an AMD Octo Core processor, the APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5700U Lucienne.
If the latter will be appreciated by those who perform small processing using multicore, often to carry out heavy work in graphics and / or processor resources, it will be better to opt for a computer based on an adequate graphics card and / or a non-processor. low consumption.
In terms of storage, there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent but also less energy, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. For example, we obtain much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of applications, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Of course, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this PC whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and finesse, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
