Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-7124
It has a sober and elegant look with its fine and light light silver frame.
Its connectivity is good, made up of wireless modules Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 when connecting USB 3.0 devices.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). Thanks to its IPS technology, it also has comfortable viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Acer Bluelight Shield technology takes care of attenuating the blue light emitted by the screen.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-7124
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-7124 is a compact 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Its transport is indeed facilitated by its controlled weight and its finesse. It will be of even more interest to nomads in terms of autonomy, we can bet on about 9 hours of battery operation in light use.
The general performance that it delivers is nevertheless able to interest many users because it is built around a low-power Comet Lake Quad Core i7-10510U processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM.
However, if one often wishes to carry out heavy work in terms of processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
This versatile Ultrabook is also equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology which assesses graphics needs in real time. In function, Optimus automatically switches between the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated in the Quad Core i7 and the dedicated GeForce MX250 card.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 620 despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy compared to the more demanding and efficient GeForce MX250.
The GeForce MX250 is in practice capable of running games that do not consume too much graphics resources. With it or the Intel UHD 620, you can also watch photos and videos.
As for storage, Acer has chosen an SSD here. It offers a capacity of 512 GB in phase with the standard of hard disks while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
Of course, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.
