Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-363A Review And Specification

Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-363A Review And Specification

 If you recognize this particular Acer Aspire 5 model, it's probably because the Acer Aspire 5 A515-43-R19L, which is the AMD version, has been at the top of Amazon's bestseller list for months. It's simple to see why. With a list price around $400, the AMD Ryzen 3-powered Aspire 5 offers a host of interesting features, including a Full-HD 15.6-inch display, a slim and portable design, and dependable everyday performance.

Now that the Aspire 5 A515-56-363A comes equipped with the most recent 11th Gen "Tiger Lake" Intel Core i3 processor, Acer is giving the same reliable performance. Other than that, nothing has changed. It has the same slim-and-trim chassis, reliable productivity, and affordable pricing.

Design

Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-363A Design

This Core i3 edition of the Aspire 5, like all other laptops in Acer's Aspire 5 line, feels slimmer and lighter than it actually is. The Aspire A515-56-363A manages to feel incredibly light for a device that weighs under 4 pounds and has a 14.3 by 9.9-inch footprint.

The laptop has a sleek appearance thanks to its tapered casing and beautiful aluminum lid. When the lid is opened, a 15.6-inch display with minimal left and right bezels, an Aspire logo along the laptop hinge, and a silver chassis with a black keyboard are all visible.

Ports

The port selection is fairly good for a low-cost system, but there is at least one unexpected absence. A Gigabit ethernet port, a full HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, and a single USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port are all located on the left side of the device. Given the Aspire's confined 128GB solid-state drive, you'll need these USB connections to attach external storage devices.

There is a combo audio jack and a USB 2.0 Type-A port on the right side. Surprisingly, there isn't a built-in memory card reader, so you have to use a USB adaptor to access memory cards from your Android phone or digital camera.

Keyboard & Touchpad

Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-363A Keyboard

The Aspire 5 range from Acer boasts plush keyboards and a few unique added features at a low price. The spacious backlit keyboard on our testing unit, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-363A, comes with a small 10-key numeric keypad. Each keystroke provides gratifying feedback, and typing on each feels comfortable. However, compared to other productivity-focused laptops we've evaluated, key travel is a tad shallow. The lighting feature and the comfortable typing experience still matter a lot for a low-cost machine.

A similarly spacious touchpad is located below the keyboard. It is snappy and feels smooth, and it does a nice job of blocking accidental palm swipes while you type. However, the trackpad on this budget Aspire 5 lacks an inbuilt fingerprint reader.

The audio quality is another aspect worth highlighting. Although a little thin, the sound quality is good for a cheap laptop, with respectable amounts of detail and bass. The Aspire 5's speakers aren't the best available, but we never set unrealistic expectations when it comes to speaker quality on a mainstream laptop priced around $1,000.

Performance

Although it lacks a true mainstream workhorse with an 11th-Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4 processor, 4GB RAM, and 128GB SSD storage, it is more than capable of handling routine daily productivity chores. All of your everyday emails, YouTube movies on the vibrant 15.6-inch screen, documents, and academic work may be handled by it. This Aspire 5 actually fills the gap between inexpensive office laptops and dorm computers because it performs admirably in both categories without charging more.

Although it has an integrated GPU, unlike siblings like the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56-50RS, which has the more recent Intel Iris Xe graphics, you can still play casual games like Minecraft and create simple movies. If you need to run recent games and mid-high media creation, the Asus FX505GT-AB73 is a solid option. However, anything above casual will be hampered by delays.

A Battery's Life

Acer estimates the 48Wh 3-cell Li-ion battery within the Ace Aspire 5 to provide 8 hours of battery life. The laptop lasts 6 hours 53 minutes while continuously browsing the web via Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, which is decent for a cheap laptop.
