Acer recently unveiled a range of affordable, Low-power processor-powered Windows notebooks designed to balance performance and battery life. Among them, the Aspire V11 built-in 11.6 inch screen, the fuselage adopts the fan-less design, the fuselage weight is about 1.36 kilograms, can achieve the longer endurance ability. So, is this 350 dollars (about 2173 yuan) of the cheap notebook can become your handy office tool it? Let's take a look at the demo experience.
Fuselage design and screen effect
Similar to Acer's Notebook, Aspire V11 uses a more conventional design, including a silver top and a wrist, a black keyboard, and a metal drawing top with a good texture, but the overall looks more moderate. Although the use of fan-free design, but the 22 mm fuselage is not considered the most frivolous notebook, should be due to the need to reserve some heat dissipation space.
interface, you can see the left side of the fuselage design card reader and USB 2.0 interface, others are concentrated in the rear of the fuselage, including Ethernet, Power, USB 3.0 and HDMI. As for the screen, the 1366*768 resolution is lower, but the screen itself is small, the perspective is good enough, it seems acceptable. Because of the support of touch operation, the screen coating on the side will have some reflective effect, but also helpless.
Acer Aspire V11 uses a common island keyboard that does not support backlighting, and the keyboard feels slightly more ethereal but acceptable. The touchpad uses the overall design, the left and right keys hidden under the touchpad, a little harder to press.
Open the back cover of the Aspire V11, you can clearly see the internal structure, you can easily replace the hard drive, but the memory slot design under the circuit board, a little less humane.
Performance, heat dissipation and endurance performance
Ding's Acer Aspire V11 uses the Intel Pentium N3530 four core processor, 4GB RAM and 500GB SATA hard drives, and the base version is Celeron N2930. In the running test, you can see that the overall performance is good, some tests even higher than the core i5-4210y low voltage processor, is very satisfactory.
Aspire V11 The actual use of the effect is also satisfactory, the computer basically does not feel a sense of stagnation, that is, open more than 10 browser tag is also so, and can run some of the video conversion work smoothly. Of course, if you want to improve performance, the simplest office is to replace its 5400-SATA hard drive with an SSD solid-state drive, which significantly improves access performance and boot time.
Then you should be curious: this Aspire V11 no fan, performance is good, then the heat is satisfactory? Basically, the core complex operation, the fuselage is relatively easy to heat, because the heat dissipation part of the focus on the bottom, put on the leg may be a little uncomfortable to use.
The last is endurance. As you can see, Aspire V11 can achieve continuous use for about 7 hours, thanks largely to low-power processors and fan-less design. Of course, if you use the video playback function or play casual games, the endurance will be further shortened.
Obviously, Acer Aspire V11 is not a fashionable notebook, such as a hybrid design, high resolution screen, but its performance is higher than the atom notebook, while achieving a satisfactory endurance, low-power processor and no fan design work. However, if you want to achieve full mute usage, it is necessary to use SSD solid-state drives to replace the fuselage SATA hard drives. In short, Aspire V11 is a good low-cost notebook, the overall configuration is not too high requirements of students and office workers can consider.
