The appearance of this thin and light light silver Ultrabook is relatively elegant and understated.
It runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced security and network management tools such as BitLocker.
In addition, a fingerprint reader is integrated which allows authentication by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
This laptop PC is also equipped with a good connection consisting 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 practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 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 connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical to distinguish its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.
With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos. It also enjoys comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
The blue light that the screen emits is it attenuated up to 30% by Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, battery life of Acer Aspire 5 Pro A515-56-58F6
The Acer Aspire 5 Pro A515-56-58F6 is a 15-inch High Definition laptop computer intended for general-purpose mobile use.
In terms of battery life, we can indeed count on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and weight controlled.
It benefits from SSD storage which clearly enhances daily responsiveness and fluidity compared to a hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we obtain, for example, starts / stops, treatments and launches of applications much faster than with a hard disk, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent. Here, we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives.
What if we need more capacity? You can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. We also have of course the possibility of using an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light laptop made up of 8 GB of RAM and a low-power Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor.
This processor has the particularity of integrating the Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) . However, it is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
Like the latter, the Iris Xe allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles that do not require too much graphic resources. It is all the more appreciable that this Ultrabook does not embed a dedicated graphics card.
