Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-796M

With its light silver aluminum design, thin and light, this versatile Ultrabook adopts a sober and elegant look.

This laptop PC has 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 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 up to ‘to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.

For its part, the screen adopts IPS technology and therefore has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, its colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, with its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content. Anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use.
In addition, Acer Bluelight Shield technology attenuates up to 30% the blue light that the screen emits.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-796M

The Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G-796M is a 17-inch High Definition laptop computer intended for general-purpose mobile use.

For a large format PC, it is easy to transport thanks to its low weight and its thinness, which is appreciable. Admittedly a 17 inch is not the most nomadic that is but proves particularly comfortable for a predominantly sedentary use (ex: at home). Side battery life in any case, we can count on about 6 hours on battery in light use.

To do this, this Ultrabook relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor here coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking.

The overall performance that this core delivers is suitable for many users … but not for those who often wish to perform CPU intensive work. In this case, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor.

Whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) integrated into the Core i7 Tiger Lake or the dedicated GeForce MX350 card, you can obviously watch photos and videos on this versatile silver Ultrabook which benefits from NVIDIA Optimus technology.

In practice, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Iris Xe and the GeForce MX350, as needed. The Iris Xe is favored as much as possible by Optimus despite its slightly more modest performance (however significantly higher than those of the classic Intel UHD 620) because it consumes little energy which favors battery life compared to the GeForce MX350.

The Iris Xe and the GeForce MX350 are able to support quite a few games, the GeForce MX350 being more greedy and a little more powerful.

In terms of storage, we are dealing with an SSD which clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.

Thus, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops as well as processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.

With its 512 GB, the onboard SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But in case you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit like a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
