Gamer laptop multimedia creator, theAcer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7 The slim, lightweight 15-inch Full HD IPS anti-glare display, with its 165Hz clock frequency, is capable of running a wide range of games, thanks to its GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card. This card also accelerates processing, as do the 16GB RAM and Intel Core i7-1260P Alder Lake-P processor, which deliver high performance in everyday use. This discreet black aluminum Ultrabook running Windows 11 benefits from a large-capacity 1TB SSD for enhanced responsiveness, a backlit keyboard, a fingerprint reader and USB-C Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.
The Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7 is currently available from Acer France and positions itself as one of the thinnest and lightest in its class and one of the few to offer such a recent processor with Thunderbolt connectivity.
It has a discreet look, with a slim, lightweight black aluminum design that rises slightly towards the front when opened.
Cooling is provided by 2 fans coupled to 3 heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
This versatile Ultrabook is well-equipped with good connectivity, including a fast USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac) for communication and remote connection, Ethernet and audio ports, and 3 USB 3.0 ports (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantee transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in..
You can authenticate yourself by biometric recognition via the integrated fingerprint reader, using Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, of course, which is handy for making them easier to see in the dark.
To appeal to gamers, the screen boasts a frequency of 165Hz, higher than the standard 60Hz, which improves fluidity in games. What's more, with its IPS technology, the screen boasts wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, while reproducing colors more faithfully than the average. Thanks to its Full HD definition and 16:9 aspect ratio, the screen is also ideal for displaying high-definition content such as videos. With its anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a glossy slab in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).
BlueLightShield technology reduces the blue light emitted by the screen by up to 30%.
The Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7 is aimed at those who want a slim, lightweight notebook with a creative and gaming focus.
It's capable of running a wide range of games, provided that you make the right settings for 3D-intensive titles to ensure good playability. This is thanks to the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere graphics card.
What's more, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti accelerates processing in software programs that exploit GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere/Photoshop, which should be of interest to designers.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is automatically activated/deactivated in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the task in hand.
Optimus prefers Intel Iris Xe, a graphics module integrated into the processor, as much as possible, despite its much more modest performance, because it consumes less energy, which is good for battery life.
In this area, pending more comprehensive tests, expect around 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is in fact activated by Optimus to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, typically for gaming. Of course, with either solution, it's possible to view photos and videos.
The Iris Xe is directly integrated into the Intel Alder Lake-P low-power Core i7-1260P processor, with a TDP 28W higher than the conventional 15W. Performance is therefore better, but energy consumption is higher.
The Core i7-1260P delivers good all-round performance for a wide range of users, combined with 16GB of RAM.
This is especially true for creators intending to carry out modest multimedia processing that takes advantage of multi-core processing - and therefore of Alder Lake's 12 hybrid cores - as well as RAM, such as photo retouching or video encoding.
On the storage side, there's a large-capacity 1TB SSD capable of hosting multiple software programs and files, which is what most hard disks offer.
What's more, compared with the latter, an SSD is quieter, more energy-efficient, more shock-resistant and much faster.
As a result, SSDs guarantee much greater fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard disk, which means much faster processing, game/software launches and starts/stops, and faster arrival on the map for online games.
Fairly easy to carry around thanks to its slim design and controlled weight, this versatile Ultrabook for gaming and creative work gets loud and hot under heavy use.
To keep temperatures in check, this multimedia notebook can be fitted with a ventilated support (remember to check the dimensions!).
