Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R8ST Performance, Battery Life
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-23-R8ST is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday multipurpose use.
It is based on an old generation AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Picasso Ryzen 5 3500U which delivers good performance in everyday use, such as office work and Internet surfing, especially since it is associated with a good amount of 8 GB RAM.
Thanks to the Radeon Vega 6 graphics solution inserted in the AMD Quad Core Ryzen 5 (equivalent to a Quad Core Ryzen 3 5300U Lucienne), we can watch photos and videos but also play light games with some concessions.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD ensures a much better fluidity in use than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we obtain much faster start/stop and launch of software.
Of course, if 512 GB is not enough, you can use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer, which is as easy to transport as an Ultrabook due to its controlled weight and slimness, count on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
