It sports an elegant and discreet design with its black brushed metal finish gives it a sober and elegant look.
The Acer Bluelight Shield technology presents attenuates the blue light emitted by the screen.
Fine and light, this responsive Ultrabook has a good connection with its USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( better and more recent than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and communications remote, its HDMI video output useful to connect easily to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports and its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Backlit system point of the keys of the chiclet keyboard or fingerprint reader as on other (more expensive) models of the same range however. But difficult to hold him to rigor with regard to its positioning and the components it embarks.
In any case, the screen is very suitable for displaying High Definition content, particularly videos with its full HD definition and 16 / 9th format. As it is anti-reflective treatment, it provides better visibility in bright environment (ex: outdoor) that a glossy slab.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-54AE
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-54AE is a 15-inch high-definition compact notebook for versatile mobile use.
It delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users because it is equipped with a 10-generation Intel Core 10th generation Comet Lake Quad Core i5-10210U low power processor coupled with a good amount of RAM 8GB appreciable multitasking.
This Ultrabook has an undeniable asset in terms of storage. It takes advantage of SSD storage with a capacity of 1 TB! And it’s rare enough to be stressed, especially at this price level.
The SSD competes with hard drives in terms of capacity while being much faster, more robust, more energy efficient and quiet.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees a noticeable operation that is more fluid and responsive than a hard disk, with start-ups / stops and launching applications much faster.
The SSD therefore supports very well the heart of this computer seconded in graphic material by the dedicated GeForce MX250 card while the modest Intel UHD 620 solution is housed within the Quad Core i5 Comet Lake. With one or the other, one can obviously look at photos and videos.
NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology automatically switches between them in real time, as needed. In practice, the Intel UHD 620 is favored as much as possible by Optimus despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy.
In terms of autonomy also, plan about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose fineness and weight under the 2 kg mark facilitate transport.
To return to the graphics, the GeForce MX250 is activated by Optimus when the tasks performed require more power than can be provided by the Intel UHD 620.
The GeForce MX250 is able to run a lot of games as long as you agree to the settings under titles greedy graphics resources to get good playability.
