Since AMD has succeeded in performing architectural revolutions on the Ryzen processors, the rivalry between Intel and AMD has again been passionate that consumers are treated to a variety of products and devices that are more appealing than ever. One such device is the Acer Aspire 3 A315-41 laptop.
Positioned as a middle-class laptop upwards, the Acer Aspire 3 A315-41 comes with two variant processors, namely the AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 3.4 GHz with Radeon Vega 3 GPU and AMD Ryzen 5 2500U 3.4 GHz with Radeon Vega 8 GPU. And this time, Technology gets the chance to sample the Ryzen 5 variant.
From the design side, the physique of the Acer Aspire 3 A315-41 is actually not much different from most mainstream laptops. It is seen from the use of polycarbonate material on its entire body. Nevertheless, the use of the Ryzen 5 processors makes it possible to attract casual and semi-prosumer gamers who need advanced multimedia features.
Coming with the Windows 10 Home version 64-bit makes it unnecessary for users to bother installing the operating system, but it only needs to do a certain amount of initial configuration when the device is first used.
Like the Acer laptops in general, the Aspire 3 A315-41 only includes two premium applications, namely Microsoft Office and Norton Security. And both are not full version, but can only be used within a certain period of time.
Norton Security itself is pinned to ward off a wide range of security threats such as viruses, malware, and others. Unfortunately, this app can only be used in a limited time (trial).
Not only that, there are also a number of applications belonging to Acer that are usually embedded in other laptops. Some of them are Acer Care Center, Acer Documents, Acer Power Button, Acer Quick Access, Acer Recovery Management, Acer Portal, and Acer Collection.
Behind a fairly capable specification, Acer packs an Aspire 3 A315-41 with a mediocre design. As an upward middle-class mainstream laptop, the material does not feel premium because it does not use aluminum. This could be because it still considers the selling price of laptops in order to compete with similar products made by competitors.
