As an introduction to this analysis

Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?

Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir adapted to surf the internet?

Because a computer is above all a tool for leisure and educational use (browsing e-commerce or information sites, writing e-mails, etc.), you need to make sure that it will stand the test of time and that it is of high quality.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
It is in this spirit that Acer has developed this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. When you get used to it, you can see that the equipment is of good quality.
With a 15 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the A4-9120. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. Having 8 Gb of RAM, Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir is a laptop in the average. Everyone is free to hand in a little more memory, for work that requires it.
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 A315-22-49FX 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 A315-22-49FX 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.

Is Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir one for watching movies and listening to music ?

This Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir is an interesting option for anyone who uses laptops to view movies, photos, or listen to music. It’s easy to find much better ones, although you won’t find any in this price range.
Through all the available laptops, you will know if, despite an average score, it corresponds to your needs.
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. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
For the sound part, the Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX 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.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor A4-9120 that is several years old now. 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.
Equipped with the AMD Radeon R3 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
For connectivity, you will have 3 ports. About the average compared to the competition.Between, the speakers, the mouse, and the external hard drive you will have little possibility to add many more peripherals.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. Acer promises 5 hours of battery life; that’s about average. 

Is Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir planned for travelling ?

It Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX 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 A315-22-49FX Noir. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
An acceptable gap regarding the displacement of this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir of 1.9 Kg. You can transport it easily, without too much effort. On your lap, this laptop holds well, and the size of the screen and the base remain acceptable.  Its weight is a disadvantage, but the15 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The screen shows an interesting result.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
CPU A4-9120 power consumption is a bit high considering the performance of the laptop.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Acer; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
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. The reasons are its size, and the hard drive that the brand Acer decided to put in 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. On the other hand, unlike an SSD type hard disk drive, it will be slower in terms of the time required to boot up or to leave the standby mode.
When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. The reason for this is its size; with 15 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
Acer provides 3connectors on this model. It is in the average of what is done on competing models.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
According to our analysis, we think it is better not to bring this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir on holiday.

The Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir- the right model for audio or video editing ?

Not really designed for video editing or music. The weak point of this model is its processor, and its amount of memory. Of course you could still use it for this, but you will find that the result is too tight. Here, both the processor and the general design of the model are obsolete. It will be more suitable for word processing and Internet browsing, and as soon as you try to run applications in parallel, you will have frozen screens and a rise in computer temperature, whose processor will quickly reach its operating limits.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor A4-9120 does best. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 1000 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
With 1000 Gb hard drive size, you have enough space.This size is one of the best on the market in this product range. However, it is possible that you will fill this space quickly as the films may take up space. The technological choice of Acergoes to a standard hard disk drive, which is more robust over time. A choice of solidity that is certainly relevant, against a choice of speed that could have broken in 5 years.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. For 5 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. A duration which is on the other hand equivalent to the other machines at the moment.
For the connector part, the Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noirhas the USB3 format. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
With this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir product, Aceroffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing. As you will have understood, it Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir proposes a rather basic oriented use. However, it will be perfect for web browsing and word processing.

Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir for video games?

Some laptops with sufficient performance, the right processors and the latest graphics cards can afford to gamble. With this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX 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 main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
With only 1366×768, this model is below standard ones. This results in lower image quality when you are in game mode.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
Even though online games today do not require disk space, the one installed on this model is one of the largest. The 1000 Gb of Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir can still be used by a large number of players in the case of locally installed games.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. 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 A315-22-49FX 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 A315-22-49FX Noir the right choice for office automation ?

Acer has chosen to respond to all users who wish to have a basic use of their Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir. It is a mature product.
Customary of this OS, Acer has chosen as usual. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
It is one of the laptops available in the range. Its weight of 1.9 Kg is not too high for a mobile computer.
Key spacing will be important for office use. On the right-hand side you will find a number pad.
We gave it the lamp test, positioned next to the screen, and it was found to be sufficiently matt to avoid the reflection phenomenon. 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.
It has a storage space of 1000 Gb.You may never fill it out, especially if you are just browsing the Internet, word processing and making spreadsheets.
Ultimately, this Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir is an intermediate choice. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.

Finally, the Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir….

In the end, our analysis will have shown that it Aspire 3 A315-22-49FX Noir is disappointing whatever the uses. Its aging technology will make its use disappointing fairly quickly.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– travel use
