Chassis, Connectors, and Display for Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-58C1
Slim and light in a light silver finish, this versatile laptop has a discreet and elegant look.
It is equipped with a good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, wireless modules and a Wi-Fi axe (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac), Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports, and a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, but also 3 USBs are all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, and USB 3.0 ensures faster transfers are made Up to 10 times that of USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The button keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys when ambient light is reduced.
Thanks to IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles both horizontally and vertically. Due to the 16:9 format and Full HD resolution, the screen is also very suitable for viewing videos and high-definition content on a larger scale. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than glossy board in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Due to the presence of Acer Bluelight Shield technology, the blue light that the screen emits is attenuated by up to 30%.
The performance and autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-58C1
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-58C1 is a thin and light 15-inch HD laptop for everyday versatile use.
It offers good overall performance that is able to suit many users as it is built on a low-power Intel Tiger Lake quad-core i5-1135G7 processor and a good amount of 16GB RAM, which is very noticeable in multitasking.
As a bonus, the Core i5’s Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) lets you view photos and videos but also play mediocre titles when there’s no dedicated graphics card on board.
On the storage side, there is a 512GB SSD, in other words, a capacity similar to what hard drives offer as standard. However, compared to the latter, SSD offers much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis because it is silent, less power consuming, more powerful, and much faster.
Best Known Price: €825
Concretely thanks to the SSD, the start/stop, processing and launching of applications are much faster for example, and our access is faster on online game cards.
Obviously, if 512GB is too tight, you can use external storage like a USB 3.0/USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for autonomy, you can count on about 7 hours on battery in light usage for this versatile Ultrabook that’s easy to weight and precise in portability.
