Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-50MA
With its thin, light silver anodized aluminum design, it has a sober and elegant look.
This versatile Ultrabook is equipped with a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers performing up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard is not a priori equipped with a backlighting system for the keys, which some will certainly regret.
Lovers of videos and more generally of High Definition content will appreciate for their part the fact that the screen adopts a 16: 9 format with Full HD definition. Thanks to its IPS technology, it also has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. The anti-reflective treatment of the screen means less fatigue in prolonged use than with a shiny panel and better visibility in bright surroundings (eg outdoors).
In addition, Acer Bluelight Shield technology ensures that the blue light emitted by the screen is attenuated by up to 30%.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-50MA
The Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-50MA is a large format High Definition laptop computer intended for general purpose mobile use and offering a large storage capacity.
Its thinness facilitates its transport which is however not the easiest due to its weight and its large size. But it is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
In any case, those who have to stay several hours away from a power outlet will appreciate the autonomy of about 6 hours provided by this Ultrabook in light use.
To do this, this computer relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Quad Core i5-1135G7 Intel Tiger Lake processor. Associated with 8 GB of RAM, it delivers good general performance able to suit a number of users.
However, if the objective is often to perform work that requires processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
Whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 or the dedicated GeForce MX350 onboard card, it is of course possible to watch photos and videos on this Ultrabook equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.
Optimus switches in practice automatically and in real time between the Intel Iris Xe and the GeForce MX350, depending on the tasks requested. The Iris Xe is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it consumes little energy which favors autonomy compared to the GeForce MX350.
The performance of these 2 graphics parts is similar, the GeForce MX350 being a little more efficient and therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, enough to run games that do not consume too much 3D resources.
Storage represents the strong point of this elegant silver Ultrabook because it is entrusted to a hybrid solution offering a large total capacity of 1.2 TB.
In fact, a 256 GB SSD is integrated to accommodate the system and the main software, the rest taking space on the hard drive of 1000 GB, substantial capacity.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster software launches as well as processing and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
