This PC runs Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.
You can authenticate yourself on the system by biometric recognition via the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
It is equipped with a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting it to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient as Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, 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.
The keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for distinguishing its keys when the ambient light is limited.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 5 Pro A517-52-53N6
The Acer Aspire 5 Pro A517-52-53N6 is a 17-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
The general performance it provides is able to satisfy many users as it relies on an Intel Tiger Lake low power Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor as well as a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the very average. useful in multitasking.
However, if you plan to carry out work that often requires processor resources, you should rather opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
While no dedicated graphics card is on-board, you can watch photos and videos as well as run games that are not too greedy in 3D resources on this thin laptop PC.
Because the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) housed in the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake, whose performance is clearly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
The integrated SSD storage clearly enhances its fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Because like any SSD, it is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, 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 benefit from fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this thin computer, bet on about 6 hours on battery in light use. Certainly a 17 inch is not the most easily transportable but has the advantage of being particularly comfortable in the context of mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
