Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56G-56LC
With its thin and light silver design that rises forward when opened, this versatile laptop sports a sleek and unobtrusive look.
It is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, one can authenticate biometrically via Windows Hello technology.
In addition, in order to better distinguish the keys in case of reduced ambient light, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. In addition, it lends itself well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, the screen is treated anti-reflective which makes it more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg outside).
Acer Bluelight Shield technology also reduces the blue light emitted by up to 30%.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56G-56LC
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56G-56LC is a 15-inch High Definition laptop for versatile mobile use.
As it features a low-power Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 Intel processor paired with 16GB of RAM, this sleek versatile Ultrabook delivers good overall performance.
As a bonus whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake or the dedicated GeForce MX450 card, you can obviously watch photos and videos but also run a lot of games on this thin and light laptop equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.
Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Iris Xe and geForce MX450, as needed. The Iris Xe is preferred to the maximum by Optimus despite its slightly more modest performance because it consumes little energy which promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce MX450.
A little more powerful, the GeForce MX450 is activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe.
Keep in mind, however, that it is better to turn instead to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you plan to often perform work demanding in processor and / or graphics resources.
On the storage side, there is an SSD that clearly reinforces responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Because an SSD is silent but also less energy-consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD ensures much faster starts/stops as well as processing and start/stop, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the integrated SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. However, in the event that you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of operation on battery in light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the weight contained.
