The Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G-R2TW was against the competition

The Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G-R2TW is currently available at Acer UK And it is positioned in the middle of its category as it is one of the only ones to run under Windows 11 and come with a fingerprint reader.

Chassis, Connectors, and Display for Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G-R2TW

With its lightweight black design, this laptop has a relatively minimalist look.

It has a good connection consisting of 1 USB-C, and a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote connection, Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB ports Compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.

You can authenticate by biometric recognition with Windows Hello because the fingerprint reader is built in.

Of course, you can illuminate the keyboard’s reflective buttons keys to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment.

The monitor will thrill gamers with its 144Hz refresh rate that enhances smoothness in games compared to the 60Hz standard. Thanks to IPS technology, the screen also has large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. In addition, it lends itself well to viewing videos and high-definition content on a larger scale because it supports the 16:9 format associated with the definition of Full HD. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Acer Bluelight Shield technology is also responsible for reducing the blue light emitted from the screen by up to 30%.

The performance and autonomy of the Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G-R2TW

The Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G-R2TW can appeal to those who are looking for a 15-inch HD laptop for multimedia and portable use.

Its contained weight makes it easy to transport without making it as portable as an Ultrabook. In any case, those who want to use their PC for many hours will be pleased with the autonomy it provides as it takes about 9 hours in light use.

To do so, this particularly black laptop relies on NVIDIA Optimus technology.
It assesses your graphics needs in real time and automatically switches in real time between a Radeon Vega 7 onboard solution and a dedicated GeForce RTX 3050.

Optimus prefers the Radeon Vega 7 as much as possible despite its very modest performance because it is energy efficient, which enhances autonomy compared to the more greedy and powerful GeForce RTX 3050.

Thanks to the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing is capable of supporting many games as long as we agree to make some compromises under the titles that consume the most graphics resources. Of course, whether with a Radeon Vega 7 or a GeForce RTX 3050, you can watch photos and videos but also play light titles.

The Radeon Vega 7 is right inside the processor, AMD Hexa Core, low-consumption Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne APU (rapid processing unit) is here along with 16GB of RAM to deliver good overall performance.

Creators will especially appreciate that this core ensures faster processing than a quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory, especially in areas that use multi-core memory and RAM, such as photo editing or video editing.

Good point, the GeForce RTX 3050 is capable of accelerating multimedia processing under programs that take advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop/Premiere.

Note, however, that if the goal is often to perform heavy work on processor resources, it is better to choose a computer based on a processor that is not low-powered, but this will have an effect on autonomy in particular.

Anyway, storage on par, entrusted to a 1TB SSD, a capacity that rivals without worry what hard drives offer.
As a bonus compared to the latter, the SSD offers several advantages: greater shock resistance, lower power consumption, silent operation or faster speed.

Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we get better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. An SSD, for example, guarantees much faster processing, as well as launching and starting / stopping games / programs, or even faster access to online game cards.

Finally, expect this versatile, multimedia gaming laptop to hear and heat up when hard-pressed (like treats and games).

A well-ventilated support may be used if necessary to reduce temperatures (In this case, remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
