The Acer Aspire A315-21-618D favors the sobriety of a fully black shell but heals the finishes with a cover with raised grid and a brushed metal keyboard surround . The set gains in elegance thanks to a refined silhouette (21.6 mm). Note also the presence of a keypad, where more and more than 15 inches prefer to remove it to compact the chassis. Unsurprisingly, the keyboard is not backlit and the touchpad is clickable but the chassis has the advantage of providing a maintenance hatchto evolve storage and RAM.
The autonomy should painfully reach 5 hours in Internet browsing with active WiFi is in the low average.
Let\’s look first at the element that has the most interest in this configuration: storage. This solution consists of a 128 GB SSD and a 1000 GB hard drive will be determining reactivity point of view. In principle, the SSD will be able to host the operating system and programs while the hard drive takes care of the storage of your toy library, thus ensuring effective overall performance, rapid turn-on / turn-off and copies of data to accelerated flow rates.
This solution is all the more valuable because it supports a rather light base based on a mobile AMD A6 Dual Core processor of last generation. As it stands, it will not be able to deal with more demanding than basic office use focused on Internet browsing, video playback or Office work. On the other hand, the 6 GB of RAM will serve multitasking and ensure a smooth flow if you multiply the active applications.
For its part, the screen is not a big asset because of its brilliant treatment, its TN panel and its definition HD (1366 x 768 px) all that is more standard. Here, reflections may appear on the screen if you work in a bright environment and the viewing angles will not be more stable. On the other hand, note that the screen can be opened up to an angle of 180 degrees, a plus if you use it elongated for example.
Finally, the connection is doing pretty well despite the lack of Type-C USB port. There is an SD card reader, an HDMI video output and three USB ports including a USB 3.0. For the exchange of data, WiFi modules 802.11 AC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet are present.
