Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77A9
It sports an elegant and discreet design with its light silver frame in fine anodized aluminum.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop PC is good, including 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this computer to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports not to mention 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical to distinguish its keys when the ambient light is limited.
The screen benefits from vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition.
As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use.
In addition, the blue light it emits is attenuated by up to 30% by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77A9
The Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77A9 is a 17-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It stands out for its large total storage capacity of 1.5 TB combining a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB with a 512 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the software.
The SSD has the advantage of clearly strengthening the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card onboard, you can watch photos and videos on this PC but also play titles that do not require too much graphics resources, whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics par integrated into the processor or the dedicated GeForce MX350 graphics card.
More energy efficient, the Iris Xe is used as much as possible by NVIDIA Optimus technology to promote autonomy. In this regard, bet on about 6 hours on battery in light use.
Optimus automatically activates the GeForce MX350 to switch on when it comes to performing graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe.
The GeForce MX350 consumes more power but is also a little more efficient.
The Iris Xe is integrated into the Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 low power Tiger Lake processor which is here coupled with 8 GB of RAM.
This duo delivers good general performance able to suit a number of users.
However, if the goal is to often perform CPU intensive work, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low power processor.
Finally, if the thinness of this computer facilitates its transport, its weight and its format do not position it among the most easily transportable PCs either. That being said, a 17 inch is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
