The connections integrated into this Ultrabook are good, made up of 2 HDMI and VGA video outputs (rare in recent years!) Useful in order to easily connect this PC to a monitor or a TV for example, wireless modules Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to ‘at 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
You can obviously backlit the keys of the chiclet keyboard, which is practical to distinguish them in a limited light environment.

Acer TravelMate P2 P214-53-71C5 performance, battery life
The Acer TravelMate P2 P214-53-71C5 is a thin and light compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday professional-oriented nomadic general-purpose use.
The general performance it provides is able to satisfy many users as it relies on a good amount of 16 GB RAM as well as a low power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i7-1165G7 processor.
The latter integrates the Iris Xe graphics part (tested by us) with significantly higher performance than the classic Intel UHD 620.
We can therefore watch photos and videos on this versatile Ultrabook but also run games that do not require too much graphics resources.
That being said, we gain by opting instead for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if we wish to regularly perform work requiring processor and / or graphics resources.
On the storage side, Acer makes the logical choice of an SSD. Remember that an SSD is silent but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops as well as software launches and treatments, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It is a 512 GB SSD that we find here on board, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But of course if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the battery life, bet on approximately 8 hours of operation on battery in light use for this versatile black Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the compactness, the smoothness and the weight contained.
