It will be perfect for those who use their laptops mainly for editing documents on Microsoft Office or even browsing the internet. Otherwise, media playback is also fine as the Full-HD screen is certainly enough for pleasing the eyes. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Acer Aspire 3 (A315-21) review – good budget laptop
Source: Laptop Media English
We can conclude that Acer Aspire 3 (A315-21) is a budget mid-range laptop that is just ordinary. Despite this, the model has many merits which would attract one’s attention. Firstly, there is its low price. Also, the display does not use PWM which allows for continuous reading or working without eye strain. If you make use of our Display Profiles, the display significantly improves its qualities. The matte finish is also a big plus.

Acer Aspire 3 A315-39

It has been a while since I tested an Acer laptop. But my general approach to the Acer name has not changed and it will stay the same. When you see an Acer device, it is easy to assume it will be comparable to other manufacturers’ budget-friendly devices, but on the other hand, you give up on quality. By quality I mean the materials used for the build as well as the build quality.

This model is not for power users, let’s start with that. The biggest disappointment to me is firstly the screen and secondly the RAM. A 1366 x 768 pixel resolution belongs to the 2010s, if you ask me. 4 GB of RAM is a joke, but it can at least be upgraded. The processor is somewhat okay, but it is the main reason why I say this laptop is not for power users.

For office and educational work, it can definitely be used, but even for educational work, the current configuration may not be enough - you may face limitations when it comes to performance. Therefore I would suggest to use this laptop if you are dealing with work that involves a lot typing. Otherwise, well, you might be upset about your purchase.

Speaking of typing, what about the keyboard? It is balanced. I can not say it is as good as any Lenovo keyboard, of course, but it will do the trick, so this is an area where you will not be disappointed.

I briefly mentioned the screen before: It has a TN panel and the viewing angles are narrow. Color coverage? Do not expect much.

Speakers? Meh. Low bass, the highs are noisy.

Simply put, what I am trying to explain here is: Do not expect much. It is a good budget laptop. No new technology aside from an 8th-Gen i3 processor. You will not get any shiny Type-C ports or HDMI 2.0 chimichangas, but you will get what you pay for. It may seem as if I have been criticizing this model - on the contrary, I wanted to make sure that you are aware of what this laptop is for.

It may be a great fit for simple daily usage. Opening up browsers, going through some documents, listening to music, watching videos and voilà, you hit your limits.

Source: NDTV Gadgets English
At the time of this review, we could find the Acer Aspire 3 (A315-53-317G) selling for as little as Rs. 28,490 on Amazon, which is very good value. For this money, you get a recent Intel CPU, fairly good build quality, a full-HD display, a comfortable keyboard, and decent battery life when doing non-intensive tasks. Acer also gives you easy access to the RAM and hard drive, which is not something we see too often in this segment.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 505: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.AMD Radeon R4 (Stoney Ridge): Integrated graphics adapter of some AMD-A dual-core APUs ("Stoney Ridge"). Based on the GCN architecture, implements 192 shader units and runs at up to 600 MHz depending on the model. The performance can vary heavily depending on the TDP (10-15 Watts for the whole chip).Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.AMD Radeon R3 (Mullins/Beema):

Integrated GPU on select AMD Beema or Mullins APUs. Based on the GCN architecture with 128 shader units and a core clock of 350 - 600 MHz.

Intel HD Graphics 400 (Braswell): Integrated graphics card in the Intel Braswell series (2016 Celeron) processors. Based on the Broadwell architecture (Intel Gen8) supporting DirectX 11.2. Depending on the processor offers 12 shader cores (EU) and different clock speeds.Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.NVIDIA GeForce MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture.
