What aspires to be the worst thing about this machine is the port selection. Yes, you get three fast USB Type-As, an HDMI connector, and a LAN port. Unfortunately, there is no sign of an SD card slot or a USB Type-C port. This is not typical for a 2023 laptop. Now, the battery life is not bad, but it is not too good either. The reason for that, in our opinion, is the small battery capacity. To be frank, we’ve seen laptops with 38Wh battery packs, which last longer. At the end of the day, the perplexing lack of a USB Type-C port might be a good reason to stay away from the Acer Aspire 3 (A315-59). But, if you don’t care about these little impurities in the crystal, you will get a super stable, fast, reliable, and comfortable computer.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
