Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-5892
With its thin and light black design, this laptop PC has a discreet look.
It has good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting 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 in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The screen for its part is ready for High Definition, including videos, because it adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
In addition, the blue light that the screen emits is attenuated by up to 30% by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-5892
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-5892 is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
In fact, it delivers good overall performance that can suit a number of users because it incorporates a good amount of 8 GB RAM associated with a low-power Intel i5-1035G1 Quad Core i5-1035G1 Ice Lake processor.
This houses the Intel UHD 620, a modest graphics part that allows you to watch photos and videos. However, since it does not come with a dedicated graphics card, this thin and light laptop PC is not suitable for heavy graphics work like gaming.
On the storage side, Acer has chosen here a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But compared to the latter, let us recall the advantages of an SSD: silence, reduced energy consumption, robustness and greater speed.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we get much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. We thus benefit from much faster starts / stops and launches of software.
Obviously in the event that 512 GB is too tight, we can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
While its transport is facilitated by its thinness and controlled weight, this Ultrabook can last about 6 hours on battery in light use in terms of battery life.
