Acer Aspire 7 (A715-42G) review – interesting hardware choices, which work surprisingly well together
Source: Laptop Media English
Before we start, we have to consider the price tag of this notebook. We would like to give credit to Acer for giving their best to keep the costs down, while not really sacrificing the quality of their product. Yes, you won’t find Thunderbolt connectivity here, and unfortunately, there is no SD card slot of any sort. Also, the materials of the build are predominantly plastic, but this doesn’t mean that the laptop feels cheap.

75% Acer Aspire 7 Gaming Review: Punching Above Its Weight Class
Source: Think Digit English
The Acer Aspire 7 is a solid choice for those who are looking to buy a new laptop without burning a huge hole in their pockets. This unassuming laptop managed to punch above its weight class during our testing, and it has earned a very respectable spot in a few of our laptop recommendation lists. It's a very reliable machine for handling your day-to-day workloads and it also has enough muscles to flex when it comes to gaming or content creation.

Обзор и тестирование ноутбука Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G на базе процессора AMD Ryzen 5 5500U и видеокарты Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
Source: Overclock3d English
Ноутбук Acer Aspire 7 A715-42G сочетает производительный процессор Ryzen 5 5500U на 12 потоков и видеокарту начального уровня GeForce GTX 1650. Это хороший вариант для офисных задач и учебы. Для более комфортной работы с ресурсоемкими программами достаточно будет поставить вторую планку памяти, и ноутбук такой апгрейд предусматривает. Видеокарта слабовата для топовых современных игр, но при низких настройках вытянет даже Cyberpunk 2077 и Red Dead Redemption 2. Три полноформатных порта USB Type A позволяет свободно подключать все важные периферийные устройства без дополнительных хабов. Есть подсветка клавиатуры. Относительно моделей представительского класса ноутбук проигрывает в дизайне, а пластиковый корпус менее прочен (крышка экрана прогибается при усилии). Но все такие нюансы компенсируются доступной ценой.
Positive: Powerful processor; high gaming performance; long battery life; nice connectivity; attractive price. Negative: Mediocre design; plastic case.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. Available with 896 and 1024 shaders.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


R5 5500U: A hexa-core APU designed for use in ultra-thin, upper mid-range laptops. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.1 GHz to 4.0 GHz alongside the Vega 7 graphics adapter (448 unified shaders running at up to 1,800 MHz). One could be forgiven for thinking Ryzen 5 5500U is a renamed Ryzen 5 4500U - which is not the case. Ryzen 5 5500U is most similar to Ryzen 5 4600U, the most noteworthy difference between the two being the faster iGPU model of the former.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

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.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


78.55%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
