Sober, the versatile Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-78XN Ultrabook running Windows 10 Pro is nomadic with its 8-hour battery life. Equipped with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen, this black laptop PC benefits from a fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB which reinforces its responsiveness but also a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Quad Core i7 Intel Tiger Lake processor with Iris Xe graphics for good performance in everyday use and the ability to run games that are not too greedy. This thin and light laptop also benefits from a biometric reader, a backlit chiclet keyboard but also a USB-C connection, Wi-Fi ax and dual HDMI and VGA video outputs.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-78XN
This Ultrabook sports a discreet and professional look with its thin and lightweight black chassis sturdy with its compliance with the US military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G.
It runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.
A fingerprint reader is also integrated to authenticate biometrically via Windows Hello technology.
In addition, a cover can slide in front of the webcam for better respect for privacy.
This laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its 2 HDMI and VGA video outputs (rare!) Which are useful in order to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV for example, its USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports not to mention its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen is anti-reflective and thus offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. It lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. In addition, it takes advantage of IPS technology which provides significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, as well as more faithful than average colorimetry.
Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-78XN performance, battery life
The Acer TravelMate P2 P215-53-78XN is for those who want to purchase a thin and light High Definition laptop for everyday professional mobile use.
It has SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling what hard drives offer. But compared to the latter, an SSD offers several advantages: it is silent, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from much faster starts / stops as well as software launches and treatments, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
If this is not its primary purpose, this versatile Ultrabook is indeed capable of running games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources. This is thanks to the benefits of the Iris Xe solution (tested by us) integrated into the processor because they are significantly superior to those of the standard Intel UHD 620.
Of course, you can also watch photos and videos on this Ultrabook whose heart, well supported by the SSD, delivers good general performance capable of being suitable for many users.
It consists of a good amount of 16 GB RAM above average and a low-power Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor.
However, with a view to regularly performing work that requires processor and / or graphics resources, it is more advantageous to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low-consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
That said, we must then expect that this will have a negative impact on autonomy in particular. In this area here, we can bet on about 8 hours on battery in light use for this laptop whose thinness and weight content facilitate transport.
