Original and elegant, the versatile Ultrabook silver black Acer Porsche Design AP714-51GT (NX.A2REF.002) has a 14-inch IPS Full HD glass touch screen as well as a fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB which reinforces its responsiveness. It is efficient in everyday use and able to run games that are not too greedy thanks to its good amount of RAM, its Tiger Lake Quad Core i7-1165G7 processor with Iris Xe graphics solution and its NVIDIA graphics card. Nomadic, it also benefits from a backlit chiclet keyboard, a biometric reader as well as a Thunderbolt 4 USB-C and Wi-Fi ax connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Porsche Design AP714-51GT (NX.A2REF.002)
With its monocoque chassis (unibody) coated with 3K carbon fiber CNC machined for good robustness, this thin and light versatile Ultrabook features a sober, elegant and original design designed in partnership with Porsche Design.
This Ultrabook also benefits from a good connection including 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ensuring very fast transfers, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connect and communicate remotely, a headphone / microphone combo audio port, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
Ethernet port point, but you can take advantage via a USB-C to Ethernet / USB to Ethernet adapter .
Biometric recognition authentication is possible via the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
In addition, you can backlit the keys of the chiclet keyboard, a feature expected and always appreciable to distinguish it correctly in low light.
The screen stands out for its multi-touch touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it, by pressure / gesture, you can interact with the system and the software.
However, as the screen cannot be opened to 360 °, this versatile Ultrabook cannot be transformed into a Tablet. Still, because of its tactile aspect, the screen is brilliant. As a result, it revives colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
With its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen also offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. It also lends itself very well to
Performance, battery life of Acer Porsche Design AP714-51GT (NX.A2REF.002)
The Acer Porsche Design AP714-51GT (NX.A2REF.002) targets those who have a significant budget and wish to acquire a compact and nomadic laptop PC for everyday versatile use on the go.
Its transport is indeed facilitated by its finesse, its compactness and its lightness. In addition, on the autonomy side, while waiting for more concrete tests, we can expect about 9 hours of battery operation in light use.
To do this, this Ultrabook integrates energy-efficient components such as its SSD storage. An SSD is indeed more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, silent and much faster. In addition here, the SSD competes with the hard drives in terms of capacity by offering a significant space of 1 TB.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, this versatile silver / black Ultrabook is much more responsive and fluid than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. Thus, for example, 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.
Because you can play with this laptop but also watch photos and videos, whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution that we tested and which is integrated into the processor, or the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX350 graphics card.
The on-board Optimus technology automatically switches between one and the other in real time, depending on the tasks performed. Optimus favors the Iris Xe as much as possible despite its slightly more modest performance (however much better than the classic Intel UHD 620) because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy. The GeForce MX350 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe. On the game side more precisely, we can run titles that are not too greedy in 3D resources.
The heart of this thin and light computer consists of a Tiger Lake low consumption Quad Core i7-1165G7 processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
The performance it delivers is suitable for many users.
But to often carry out work requiring processor and / or graphics resources, we will rather opt for a PC equipped with a non-low-power processor and / or an adequate graphics card.
