Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-36QE
With its black chassis, this thin and light laptop PC has a discreet and professional appearance.
It works precisely under the Windows 10 Pro system which offers additional services compared to classic Windows 10, such as advanced network management and security tools, such as BitLocker.
To authenticate biometrically on this Ultrabook via Windows Hello technology, you can use the fingerprint reader associated with the TPM 2.0 security chip.
In addition, the webcam can be covered with a cover that you slide in front of when you want to protect your privacy.
The connectivity integrated into this computer is superior to that of its category. There is indeed 1 USB-C, 2 HDMI and VGA video outputs (rare in recent years!) Useful in order to easily connect this PC to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Good point, a backlighting system equips the chiclet keyboard which is practical to distinguish its keys when the ambient light is reduced.
For its part, the screen is anti-reflective which makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. In addition, it lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio. As it takes advantage of IPS technology, the screen also has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-36QE performance, battery life
The Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-36QE is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop computer intended for everyday general-purpose nomadic use.
It delivers good performance in everyday use as in office automation and surfing the Internet because it relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low consumption Intel Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake processor.
Admittedly, the latter shows its limits under software that is greedy in processor resources, like the AMD Ryzen 3 and of course less powerful processors.
But the Core i3-1115G4 has the advantage of integrating within it the Intel G4 graphics part, whose performance is superior to those of the conventional Intel UHD 620.
Concretely, thanks to the Intel G4, you can watch photos and videos but also indulge in games that don’t consume much graphic resources.
As for storage, Acer has chosen an SSD which has the advantage of being silent but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, responsiveness and fluidity are much better on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive, which implies, for example, much faster application launches as well as starts / stops or even a faster arrival on the cards online games.
With its 256 GB, the onboard SSD offers sufficient capacity for a number of uses but less than the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 8 hours on battery in light use for this discreet black Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the thinness and the weight contained.
