And to begin with…
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.So we ran tests on Jumper Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro to find out what it was worth.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro adapted to surf the internet?
Considering that your use of a computer is simple (surfing the internet, writing e-mails and/or letters, doing calculations on an Excel spreadsheet), it is important to focus on a laptop that is both of high quality and strong enough to last over time.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
It is in this spirit that Jumper has developed this Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 11.6 inches size. Also note that this model is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro on your lap. The overall design is of quality and is made to last. A product made to last a long time. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Jumper has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Intel Atom E3950. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 6 Gb of memory. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. In terms of memory, you will be assured of having a machine that is more fluid.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. For those who regularly work on a public or private cloud, the available 64 gigabytes will be enough. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Additional point concerning autonomy: 8 hours of tranquility. With this laptop Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro it will therefore be necessary to always keep the power cable within easy reach. It would be more interesting for the same price, to buy a desktop or a tablet, more powerful on the part autonomy and web surfing.
The Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
Equipped with a small screen size, 11.6 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.2 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Atom E3950 is now outdated. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel HD Graphics 505, which with 6 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.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Jumper promises 8 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro the right choice for travelling connected ?
This Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro is one of the average laptops; not really nomadic oriented, but still possible to carry on special occasions. We tested several functions depending on their intended use : for holidays, weekends, or continuously on public transport for work. And here’s the result : What makes this one of the best laptops to carry is the balance between weight, size and the set of components chosen by Jumper.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It’s one of the best in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 11.6 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
Note that the screen of this Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro being touch screen, you will be able to do without the mouse. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. The selections are precise in the cursor movement, making navigation seamless.

Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
With the installation of the processor Intel Atom E3950, the power consumption is rather important.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this Acer Aspire A315-42-R5KQ EZpad 6 Pro. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
An autonomy of 8 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 64 Gb. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Its 11.6 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
If it is for an exceptional trip, we think it can be taken away.
