Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-78KQ chassis, connectors, screen
It stands out with its slim and light mottled gray design, partly made from recycled materials (30%).
This versatile laptop features 1 USB-C, audio and Ethernet ports, 6 Wi-Fi wireless modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example even 3 USB, compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees up to 10 times faster transfers gives More than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Since the biometric reader is integrated, you can authenticate yourself biometrically via Windows Hello.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical, of course, so that its keys can be better distinguished when the ambient light is reduced.
The R and E keys are mirrored, thus emphasizing the recycling and environmental aspect of this laptop, according to the brand.
On the screen side, thanks to the 16: 9 format and Full HD image, there is a screen suitable for videos and more broadly High Definition content. Because it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (such as outdoors) than a glossy panel. In addition, both its horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important thanks to IPS technology, but not high-end, because the colorimetry here is classic.
Blue light emitted from the screen is reduced by up to 30% with Acer Bluelight Shield technology.
Performance, Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-78KQ autonomy
Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-78KQ is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general purpose use.
It packs an Intel Quad Core i7-1195G7 Tiger Lake-U processor, which is admittedly underpowered, but its 28W TDP is higher than the standard 15W. This translates into better performance but less autonomy.
Moreover, autonomy is not a strong point of this computer, as it lasts about 6 hours on battery with light use.
Fortunately, portability of this versatile Ultrabook is made easy by its slimness and manageable weight.
Returning to the Quad Core i7-1195G7, it delivers good overall performance that should satisfy many users. However, we regret that due to the layout of this computer, the amount of RAM is limited to 8 GB, which may be fair for those who multitask and/or do multimedia processing.
In any case, despite the lack of a dedicated on-board graphics card, thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module integrated directly into the Core i7, you can view photos and videos, as well as play simple games.
Storage is entrusted to the SSD, which rivals the standard of hard drives with a capacity of 512 GB, being quieter, less energy consuming, more robust and faster.
In practice, therefore, an SSD provides better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive on a daily basis.
Thanks to the SSD, we get faster start/stop, processing and launch of applications or even faster access to the cards of online games.
Of course, while 512GB is too tight, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
