Foreword

Latest release in the range Acer, we’ve been running tests on Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir…Our analysis was made according to 6 user typologies.To make the choice easier, we have judged this Acer Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir according to what you are going to do with it.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?

Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir adapted to surf the internet?

Chances are that your daily use is not limited to surfing the Internet, and that you need the other functions as well.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.A fairly powerful multi-processor, but one that won’t require you to take out a credit to pay for it.Here you have an almost perfect product.A laptop that meets all the requirements! This is what the Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir from Acer seems to be.
With a 15 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The manufacturer has chosen to equip this model with a processor Core i5-1035G1. Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component. Moreover, because of this processor, you can be sure that you have a tool that allows you to navigate the Internet correctly. The 8 Gb of RAM available on this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. It’s up to you to add more on the additional pitches provided if your needs arise.
By offering a hard drive of this size, the company is making this model one of the laptops with the largest disk space on the market. Even with 1000 Gb, you can be sure that many video and audio files are continuously stored. This Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir allows you to save locally, and guarantees that you can watch all the movies you want without internet access.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 5 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. With this laptop Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir it will therefore be necessary to always keep the power cable within easy reach. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.

The Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir- the right model for streaming and videos ?

Making this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of Acer. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
The laptop from .Acer is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 15 inches and a high resolution of 1366×768. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 1.9 kg, partly because of the screen size.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
For the sound part, the Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir has a processor Core i5-1035G1, a little more powerful than average, compared to those dedicated to office automation. A mid-range element with the latest components (chipsets) ensuring better compatibility with your peripherals. You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Acer installed by default. Only the operating system is installed. As a standard, you have some Windows 10S on which it will be possible to add all the software you need. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD G1, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
On the connectivity side, you will have 3 ports. This is standard compared to computers currently available on the market.Just what you need to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. You have 5 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average. 

Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir compatible with on the move use ?

It Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. This seems to be the issue that the Acer didn’t really take into account in the design of this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
It Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir is in the average, neither too light nor too heavy: 1.9 Kg. It is easy to carry even if you prefer the ultra slim models of the competition. On the other hand, the large size will be an advantage to see photos during the holidays. For 15 inches, on the other hand, it allows you to have a clear display when you want to browse the internet or write e-mails.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The viewing is up to the mark.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
The manufacturer offers the processor Core i5-1035G1 on this laptop; in average in terms of power compared to other products in the same range, and also in terms of energy consumption.
However, please note that the autonomy indicated by Acer must be reduced. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
An autonomy of 5 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
Because of the technology used, it will be better not to move this computer too much. Because, due to its weight and size, every move will put you at risk of damaging it. About the hard drive, Acer has chosen a classic technology for its 1000 Gb hard drive; Good when it comes to storing data (photos, music, movies), less good for the time it takes to boot up or get out of standby mode. Only an SSD hard drive could improve this, but then it is an additional cost.
When it comes to traveling, you’ll probably think twice before you take that computer with you. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. Indeed, because of its size, 15 inches, you have there, one of the largest laptops of the moment.
With 3 connectors, this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir allows multiple connections. It’s one of the average laptops.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Following our tests, it appeared to us that it is not Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir really made for travelling.

The Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir to make audio or video editing. 

The publishing or the musical creation are not the uses that the engineers of Acer have thought of for this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir. This type of use requires power and memory, which this model lacks. However, this does not prevent you from editing as long as you are patient and no other applications are launched. Here, both the processor and the general design of the model are obsolete. In short, prefer a model that will be a little more expensive, but much more efficient.
Possibly for occasional use, the processor Core i5-1035G1 will allow you to perform certain tasks, if they are initiated individually. Having 8 Gb of RAM, the rendering speed is sufficient for image processing. All the applications you’ll need to get started are available. If on the other hand you start on pro applications, it will be necessary to add more memory.
Having a hard disk of 1000 Gb, you will be assured of a good storage capacity. This size is one of the best on the market in this product range. And that’s what you’ll need to store your films and music locally. Regarding the speed at startup, Acermade the choice of the conventional hard drive. The SSD would have been much faster than the current one even though the life span is shorter.
In terms of autonomy,the Acerkept it simple. Indicated for an autonomy of 5 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. A result in the average of the competitors.
For the connector part, the Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noirhas the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
In the end, it is a product not allowing audio and video editing. You can use it for word processing or web browsing.

The Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir- the right model to play with?

It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. With this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. The Acer technical choices were rather made to meet classic needs such as internet browsing or word processing.
Provided with a resolution of 1366×768, this model is unfortunately much less equipped than its competitors. This results in lower image quality when you are in game mode.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Since Acer has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
Although you won’t need it because of online games, it’s probably one of the biggest hard drives today. The 1000 Gb of Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir can still be used by a large number of players in the case of locally installed games.
For online gaming, it Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir has high quality Wi-Fi. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
You’ll like this handy laptop, and rather light (1.9 Kg and 15 inches), comparable to most similar products.
By offering 5 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
In short, an average rendering that makes this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. And save this one for more classic uses, like surfing the net.

Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir for office automation ?

Access on efficiency, this Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir is part of the laptops provided for office automation. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It is equipped with Windows 10S.
Not all basic office applications may be available on this model. It’s up to you to download and/or purchase the software suite that suits you. In contrast to other larger models, this model is in the middle of the pack in terms of space requirements. Average weight, with 1.9 Kg.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
This Aspire 3 A315-56-55Z7 Noir eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. But at the same time, the light intensity is low enough so as not to tire the eyes in the dark.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
With more 1000 Gb, it’s not one of the biggest.Today it is one of the largest storage capacities available.
In conclusion, this laptop is interesting. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.
