The Acer Aspire E15 is the new family of multimedia notebooks Taiwanese company for home. These models are committed to a standard size of 15.6 inches and are all colorful for their design, because we can choose our laptop up to five different colors. As usual in these cases, we find numerous settings, both on the processor, and screen (which may be lower or higher resolution or tactile) or internal memory. These teams reach the market from next August at a price of 500 euros. We will have full details on this equipment in an analysis thoroughly.
There is no doubt that the big bet of portable Acer Aspire E15 is the color. The Taiwanese company has brought an increasingly widespread tendency in the world of smartphones and tablets to launch several models in different colors. In this case, we can choose settings in black, silver, brown, sapphire blue and burgundy. As a result, we can customize these laptops to our liking. In the field of the screen, also offers a range of options according to our need. On the one hand, we can have a screen resolution HD 1,366 x 768 pixels in both format touch and non-touch.
This second case, you can also bet on a panel with resolution full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels that allows us to enjoy film and video in high quality. In addition, you can also choose from a glossy screen and matte. Although this second option is less attractive at first glance, it becomes an excellent choice in case you have to use the equipment outdoors. Indeed, the company has included a technology called Zero Air Gap to enhance the contrast of the panel and provide better visibility in bright environments.
Acer will offer several different configurations for this team in terms of both storage and in the field of processor. In the first case, the main challenge is on a hard drive, you may have a capacity of 500 GB or 1 TB. Using this format will allow us to store more multimedia files, although the speed is lost is reached with the SSD memory format. As for the processor, the user can select various settings of chips Intel Core (both Intel Core i3 and Intel Core i5) chips such as AMD. One of the most powerful configurations is that resorts to a processor Intel Core i5-4210U dual core with a power of 1.7 GHz per core.
Thanks to Turbo Boost technology, we can reach speeds up to 2.7 GHz in the moments when we need a faster process. In addition, through Hyper-Threading can actually work as if we counted four physical cores. RAM memory configurations available vary between 4 GB and 8 GB (6 GB through on some models). Users who require a higher capacity can reach up to maximum of 16 GB. Multimedia use of this equipment is reinforced with the option of integrating dedicated graphics cards NVIDIA GeForce graphics or AMD Radeon.
The operating system chosen for these laptops is Windows 8.1. The latest offering from Microsoft is an ecosystem that wants to serve for both tablets and for notebooks and PCs of all life. This combines the classic desktop interface very similar to that found in Windows 7 with a home screen that uses different blocks to access apps and files on the computer.
The problem is that the connection between these two worlds was so far very poor, especially for users who use a conventional keyboard and mouse platform. Microsoft wanted to fix this hole with the latest update Windows 8.1 Update, which encourages the use of mouse. And it is that users use this accessory can access all open through taskbar programs, regardless of the app they are. Anyway, the full use of this system occurs when you bet on a touch screen.
In terms of applications available, you can enjoy virtually the entire universe of desktop applications that are compatible with Windows 7. Moreover, it also has access to the app store Microsoft, while recognizing that this is a market that still needs greater maturity to become a solid alternative. One of the aspects that have been reinforced in these laptops is the quality of the webcam and microphone, with a richer when experienced video conference is achieved Skype.
In the field of connections, the Acer Aspire E15 distinguished by the presence of a USB 3.0 port, a protocol that achieves rates ten times faster than traditional USB transfer. We also have two USB 2.0 ports to plug in devices that do not need that speed, such as USB mice or less powerful memories. Another connection that could not be missed in a multimedia laptop is a HDMI port to stream content in high quality laptop to TV.
We also have a port VGA to connect the laptop to a monitor and a traditional port Ethernet to connect to the Internet through cable. The connections are completed with WiFi to connect at home or in a hotspot and Bluetooth to synchronize with compatible devices. In the media field, you can use the computer to depend heavily on the choice of panel to do, because if we choose a screen Full HD can see movies and games with a higher level of detail.
