Chassis, connector, screen on Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-5567
With its thin and light light silver design, it has a sober and elegant appearance.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor, e.g. Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communication, Ethernet and audio ports, but also 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will be pleased that the screen adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16:9 format. Since it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (e.g. outside). In addition, its viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are significant thanks to its IPS technology, but obviously not high-end at this price level, which implies classic colorimetry.
Performance, autonomy for Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-5567

Storage is entrusted to a 256 GB SSD, capable of easily accommodating and/or few software and files, which represents half of the standard for hard drives.
If you need more space, you can of course use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
On a day-to-day basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a day-to-day basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we achieve, for example, much faster application launches, processing and start/stop, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
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.
