Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R6R5
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R6R5 is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It benefits from a low consumption Hexa Core processor, the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne here coupled with 8 GB of RAM.
The general performance provided by this core is able to satisfy many users.
In addition it is supported by the dedicated graphics card AMD Polaris Radeon RX 640. Thanks to it, you can run games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources but also of course watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, Acer has chosen an SSD which has the advantage of being silent but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of applications than with a simple hard drive or even faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
Here we find an embedded SSD of 512 GB, a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks.
However, if you need additional space, you can obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this laptop whose thinness and controlled weight make it easy to transport.
