Acer achieves a good forward visible compared to these Aspire F17 and is closer to the aesthetics of the new Nitro VN7. The design and the quality of assembly are particularly neat with the use of aluminum on the bulk of the shell (lid and inside) to gain strength. Aesthetically, the whole remains very sober in order to address the greatest number: a smooth brushed effect on the lid contrasts with a matte keyboard turn, awakened by a contour of the base and chromed beveled touchpad and by a central hinge polite. Small peculiarity of this hinge, it allows the opening of the screen up to an angle of 180 degrees. A plus for modularity. Side measurements, the PC takes place in the average, neither compact nor too massive. Note further that
The autonomy should hardly reach 5 hours in Internet browsing with active Wifi. This is average but not surprising considering the components and the sedentary format of the PC.
Designed to meet the needs of everyone, the Acer Aspire A717-71G-73LN is based on a swift heart composed of a Quad Core Kaby Lake i7, 8 GB of RAM and a hybrid storage. This is a combination often crossed on versatile machines and entry-level gamer, and it\’s not for nothing. For the amateurs of office automation as for those who work the 3D modeling or the video editing, this base ensures good levels answers and is only very rarely overloaded. The multitasking is comfortable to the extent of the reasonable and the possibilities are numerous.
Especially since storage puts on a dedicated SSD combined with a hard drive of significant capacity, a solution that allocates dynamism of the system and storage capacity. Regarding the dedicated SSD, its capacity of 128 GB is relatively limited and is intended to house the OS and the majority of programs while the hard drive is responsible for massive storage of your toy library. This gives you a fast-running system and significantly shorter load times compared to hard drive storage alone.
Central element of its versatile configuration, the GeForce GTX 1060 is a graphics card of the latest generation Pascal positioned on the high end. Able to ensure a high level of play in Full HD on all titles in the market, it is suitable for intensive players who can consider the next few years serenely. The game in 4K is also supported (external monitor) on some of the opus, as well as virtual reality.
For its part, the screen looks good with its definition Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), its matte surface and its IPS technology. In use, the immersion on your content in High Definition is total and you can modulate the display at your convenience. In addition, the viewing angles are widened, the colorimetry faithful and reflections in bright environment countered by the matte slab for more comfort of visibility on the actions of the game.
Well matched, connectivity brings all the necessary at this level of performance, although it skips the DVD burner. Four USB ports including a USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Type-C are on the program as well as an HDMI output, an SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet and the latest generation of Wifi chip AC (2×2). Note also the presence of a fingerprint reader to secure access to your data and log in with a touch of your finger on Windows.
