Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52-31EP
With its thin and light light silver design, this silver Ultrabook has a sober and elegant appearance.
This versatile laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged in.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more widely High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format coupled with the precise Full HD definition. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny slab and less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52-31EP
The Acer Aspire 5 A517-52-31EP is a relatively thin and light 17-inch High Definition laptop with large capacity and designed for everyday versatile use.
It clearly stands out for the large total storage capacity of 1.1 TB significantly higher than the average it offers.
It consists of a 128 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software, the rest taking place on the hard disk with a consequent capacity of 1000 GB able to accommodate multiple applications and files.
It should be noted that an SSD offers several advantages because it is less energy-intensive than a hard drive but also more robust, silent and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, responsiveness and fluidity are enhanced on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive, which implies, for example, much faster start/stop and software launches, or a faster arrival on the maps of online games.
The SSD supports very well the heart of this versatile laptop that delivers good performance in everyday use as in office automation and Internet surfing. Because it is built around a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Core i3-1115G4 processor and 8 GB of RAM.
If the Core i3-1115G4 reveals its limits under CPU-intensive software like AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processor obviously, it integrates directly within it the Intel UHD G4 graphics solution thanks to which you can watch photos and videos but also play light titles.
As for the autonomy, count on about 6 hours on battery in light use for this mobile computer whose large format is comfortable for a mostly sedentary use (eg at home). If its weight and thinness facilitate its transport, it is not the most easily transportable by nature since it is a 17-inch.
