Chassis, connector, screen on Acer Aspire 3 A315-58-35FY
With its thin and light silver design, this versatile laptop has a sleek and understated look.
This Ultrabook is equipped with proper connectivity options consisting of a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV, for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules for remote connections and communication, audio and Ethernet ports, but also 3 USB, USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Lovers of videos and more broadly of High Definition content will be pleased that the screen uses a 16:9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. And all the more so since the screen benefits from IPS technology, thanks to which both vertical and horizontal viewing angles are important. Since it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outside) than a blank panel.

It’s a low-power Intel Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake processor, which together with the right amount of 8GB of RAM delivers good performance in daily use, such as office automation and internet surfing.
However, keep in mind that the Core i3-1115G4 reveals its limitations during software that requires processor resources, such as AMD Ryzen 3 and of course less powerful processors.
In case 512GB would be too tight, you can of course rely on an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
Regarding the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook, whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and finesse, you can expect about 7 hours of battery life with light use.
