Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-742R
It has an elegant and discreet look with its thin and light light silver frame.
This versatile Ultrabook has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Thanks to the chiclet keyboard backlighting system, you can better distinguish the keys in limited brightness environments.
The screen will interest him lovers of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition and 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, it comes with Acer Bluelight Shield technology which attenuates the blue light it emits. Too bad, however, that we are not dealing with an IPS panel that would have offered significant viewing angles.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-742R
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-742R is a 15-inch High Definition laptop computer intended for general-purpose mobile use.
Thanks to its weight under 2 Kg and its finesse, this versatile Ultrabook sees its easy transport. It will be of interest to nomads as well as students because in terms of autonomy, we can bet here about 8 hours of battery operation in light use.
To do this, this laptop relies on energy- efficient components like its low-power Intel Ice Lake Quad Core i7-1065G7 processor that we tested . Coupled with 8 GB of RAM, it delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, keep in mind that if you often want to do heavy work in processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
In any case, despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card, you can watch photos and videos on this elegant silver Ultrabook but also play titles that do not require too much 3D resources. How? \’Or\’ What ? Thanks to the services of the Iris Plus Graphics G7 solution. Because the Iris Plus G7 is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 60, positioning itself below a dedicated GeForce MX250 card.
Storage is the strong point of this laptop. Hybrid, it offers a total capacity of 1.2 TB much higher than the average.
It consists of a 256 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, but also a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB able to accommodate the rest.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity than a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of software / games, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Remember that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
