The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-52D0 is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for versatile use on the go.
Thanks to its contained weight and finesse, this versatile Ultrabook sees its easy transport. battery life side, we can bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
To deliver such battery life, this sleek silver laptop PC relies on energy-efficient components like its low-power Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor. The latter is here associated with a good amount of 8 GB RAM.
Result this Ultrabook delivers good general performances able to satisfy many users. And all the more so since the Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake houses the Iris Xe graphics part within it.
However, as our test of the Iris Xe shows , this solution is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
In fact, thanks to the Iris Xe, you can look at photos and videos of course, but also play titles that are not too greedy in graphic resources.
SSD storage is more energy efficient than a hard drive, but also more shock resistant, silent and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, we get much better responsiveness and fluidity than with a simple hard drive. On a daily basis, we benefit from much faster starts / stops as well as processing and launching of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
In terms of capacity, the onboard SSD offers 512 GB, which is the standard for hard drives. If this proves to be insufficient, one can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
