Reviews for the Acer Aspire 3 A315-42-R5P7

Acer Aspire 3 (A315-42) review – the bare minimum
Source: Laptop Media English
Then, you are given neither an SD card slot nor a USB Type-C port, which is some sort of mandatory these days. In addition to that, two of the USB Type-A ports that are actually present on the device are 2.0. Thankfully, there is a keyboard that works just fine, and is in fact, pretty comfortable to use.
