Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 3 A317-53-59UA

The Acer Aspire 3 A317-53-59UA is a 17-inch laptop designed for versatile everyday use offering a large storage capacity.

The main advantage of this configuration lies in its storage. It features a large 1000 GB SSD that competes with the vast majority of hard drives while also being more robust, energy efficient, quiet, and much faster. The 1TB capacity is twice as much as what most SSDs offer, even in much more expensive laptops.

With the SSD, one can install and store multiple software and files on this laptop, providing much better fluidity and responsiveness in everyday use than if it had a hard drive.

Thanks to the SSD, startups/shutdowns, processing, and app launches are much faster than with a hard drive, for example, and one can quickly access online game maps.

Despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card, one can view photos and videos and play light games thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics (which we have tested) integrated into the processor.

It is the low power Quad Core i5-1135G7 Intel Tiger Lake with the Iris Xe, a processor coupled with a good amount of 16GB RAM, which provides good performance in everyday use.

As for battery life, expect around 5 hours of light use on battery for this slim 17-inch laptop, which is not the most easily portable by nature. However, a computer of such a large format is comfortable for predominantly sedentary use (e.g. at home).
