Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77FR
It is positioned in the Ultrabooks clan thanks to its finesse but is not the most easily transportable because of its weight.
In any case, it has an elegant and discreet allure with its fine light silver case which lifts forward when opened.
This versatile laptop PC is equipped with good connectivity including 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, practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
A fingerprint reader is integrated and therefore we can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also benefits from large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. Thanks to its anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) and is more restful for the eyes over a long period.
Acer Bluelight Shield technology makes it possible to reduce the blue light emitted by the screen by up to 30%.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77FR
The Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-77FR is a large format High Definition laptop computer intended for versatile mobile use.
In terms of battery life, this Ultrabook can indeed last about 6 hours on battery in light use. If it is thin, its weight does not however make it the most easily transportable.
In any case, in terms of graphics processing, we are dealing with the Intel Iris Xe solution that we tested integrated into the processor and the dedicated GeForce MX350 card. On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches between the two in real time as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Iris Xe despite its modest performance (however significantly superior to the Intel UHD 620) because it consumes little energy and thus promotes battery life compared to the GeForce MX350 which is certainly more demanding but in return a little more powerful.
The GeForce MX350 is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel Iris Xe. Thanks to the GeForce MX350, you can run a lot of games on this late PC as long as you agree to settings under titles that are greedy in graphics resources to obtain good playability.
Obviously, whether with the integrated Iris Xe or the GeForce MX350, you can watch photos and videos on this versatile computer.
The Iris Xe is more precisely housed within the Tiger Lake low power Quad Core i7-1165G7 processor. Here it is coupled with a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above average.
This duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, it should be borne in mind that to carry out work requiring processor resources on a regular basis, it is better to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor.
In terms of storage, there is a silent SSD onboard while being more robust than a hard drive, more energy efficient and much faster.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software than with a hard disk, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
In addition here, we take advantage of a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that easily rivals hard disks
