Dark grey Acer Aspire 1 A115-31 is made of solid plastic but feels very lightweight, weighs 4 pounds and measures 14.3 x 9.9 x 0.78 inches. 15.6″ HD IPS ComfyView anti-glare display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and very large viewing angles. The BlueLightShield technology on the display helps reduce the eye strain, especially when you’re using it for a while. With the fairly narrow bezel design you have more screen space. There is an integrated digital microphone and two stereo speakers for good enough sound quality at this level. It has a Precision touchpad that is responsive and intuitive for a bit more immersive experience. Intel UHD 600 graphics card has a video card benchmark score of 324 and is only suitable for not very demanding games like Sims 4 and Dirty Rally. It is a good little entry level laptop that is easy to set up and that works as promised and at a very reasonable price.
