Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen can be read more in a bright environment (eg outside) than in a glossy panel. It also lends itself well to viewing videos and more broadly for high definition content because it adopts 16:9 format associated with Full HD fine definition.

The performance and autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-53E1

The Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-53E1 is a slim and lightweight 15-inch HD laptop designed for general purpose portable use.

Those who like to use their computer for several hours away from a power outlet will appreciate that it can last about 7 hours on battery power in light use. Because of its quality and controlled weight, it is easy to transport.

However, it benefits from a good amount of 16GB of RAM that is above average, along with a low-powered Intel Tiger Lake quad-core i5-1135G7 processor. Thus a good overall performance is obtained, able to satisfy a number of users.

In addition, in the absence of a dedicated graphics card on the board, you can watch photos and videos but also enjoy modest games. And that’s thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution (which we tested) built into the Core i5.

Its 512GB SSD storage is in line with what hard drives offer as standard. However, it offers undeniable advantages: silent operation, greater durability, lower power consumption, and greater speed.

Of course, in the event that 512 GB will be too narrow, we can count on external storage. Preferring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device is an interesting option for fast transfers.
