The Aspire 3 A315-55G-550F Noir will now allow you to go beyond the exclusive use for work and will also serve as a tool for digital entertainment. You will benefit from an unparalleled comfort of use. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
Acer presents this model in a large size version. A 15 inches screen, and a resolution of 1366×768 make it one of the great products available on the market at the moment. Multimedia oriented, you will enjoy watching your films. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 1.9 kg.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
For the sound part, the Aspire 3 A315-55G-550F Noir is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
The processor installed on this model is a Core i5-10210U sufficient one for audio and video. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals. This will result in fluid video and audio sessions.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Acer installed by default. The operating system and that’s it. This is a Windows 10 on which you can install the software you need. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
With NVIDIA GeForce MX230, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 4 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
In the connectivity part, you have 3 ports available. In the norm compared to most other computers in the competition.Just what you need to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. You have 5 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average.
