Acer aspire 3 perfect for students

With powerful productivity, you can do everything you need to get done during your workday without slowing down.

The Aspire 3 is great for you to use. It has the latest Intel® or AMD Processors, up to 8GB of memory, and enough power to work all day! Operating System Windows 10.  You can do anything with this computer.

This is Acer Aspire 3 a315 1 of the best budget laptops in the market. 

It is retailing for around R10 000 on the market. 

Now you do have some decent specs here.  This laptop is running a ( Windows 10 Home) Intel Core i3 processor,  4 GB of RAM,  1 TB hard drive (HDD Storage),  Intel UHD graphics card.  Now unfortunately there is no SSD option when buying brand new. We always recommend inserting a Solid State Drive (SSD) and extra Ram (eg DDR4 SDRAM 128 GB SSD). Ultitech can install it for you.

Now there are a decent number of USB ports you get to 2 USB ports (USB 2.0) a headset port an ethernet port and an HDMI port.  that is the basic set of balls that you can expect with a budget laptop like this.

It’s the laptop you need when you’re on the go

Now let’s talk about the build quality and this is one of the areas where the Acer Aspire 3 a315 shines both literally and figuratively.  It does have a full plastic chassis.  It does have quite a bit of flex and a nice coating. The coating mimics the Feel of aluminium.  It does feel pretty solid overall,  that said it is not so thin and light so you will definitely feel it when you put it in your bag over your shoulder.

Ok, let’s talk about the display this is where budget laptops really start to suck.  thankfully the Acer Aspire 3 a315 is a step above the rest.  this laptop has a 15.6-inch display with a 1366 x 768 resolution. This is not a full HD display.  is it sharp enough for outside viewing in – no. It has a matt coating and so not too reflective.  is it good enough or watching movies yes although you might see some colour shift if you doing a bit of a odd angle viewing to the screen.

The border is narrow so you can see more at once and enjoy images in sharper detail

The Full HD1 display will help keep images and videos looking good. Acer BlueLightShield™ stops harmful blue light from coming out of the screen so it is safe to look at.

Comfortable keyboard and trackpad

The Aspire 3 laptop is a great all-around machine. It’s designed with the busy professional or college student in mind, and it has everything you need from powerful tech to thoughtful design features for all of your daily computing needs!

The keyboard is tactile and it’s responsive which is good enough for a budget laptop,  we have not had any problems typing with the keyboard for long periods of time.  The only downside is that it is not backlit.  The touchpad is small it’s light it’s nappy which is great and allows for multi-touch gestures.

The Camera is a Acer webcam with 640 x 480 resolution.

Now the performance on the Acer Aspire 3 a315 is pretty average.  It is using an( Windows 10 Home) Intel Core i3 processor with a 1 terabyte hard drive.  It is quite responsive. It is quick and you won’t have a problem running multiple apps at one point in time. 

The Acer Aspire 3 a315 is easy enough for everyday work.  If you play a lot of games chat to Ultitech and they will be able to custom  quote  a new laptop or computer for you.

Great battery life so that even if there are no power outlets nearby

The battery life here is actually quite impressive it can handle up to 6 hours of on-screen time.  If you are using your laptop outside you might have to increase the screen brightness but often most laptops on never used outside so this won’t be an issue and that will extend the battery life too.

Powerful enough to handle professional tasks, but compact and light for easy transport

Should you be buying an Acer Aspire 3 ( Windows 10 Home) Intel core i3 in 2021 we think it is a really decent entry-level student budget laptop.

I've had some major computer (RAM) problems that I was convinced were unfixable. Luckily, I found this company and not only did they fix my issue's but also made my laptop run faster than ever before. Plus dealing with the staff is like having access to a solid IT company. Friendly, professional, helpful, and knowledgeable about the products and their work. Would definitely recommend!
