All it takes is a single look at this Acer workstation to see that it is a high-quality machine, available in a matte white or sleek black finish. It delivers excellent performance and does so without overheating. There are good fan design and a reasonably large ventilation grill located on the bottom panel. Hot air is efficiently exhausted from the back of the Acer ConceptD 5 CN515-71-712T.
With HDMI, USB 2.0 port, USB 3.1 Generation 2 Type-C, 2 USB 3.1 Generation 1 Type-A ports, RJ-45 network, etc…, there is plenty of connectivity and networking with the ConceptD 5. Despite the durability of the workstation, it’s still reasonably light, at approximately 5.51-lbs.
Even though people call it a “workstation,” it’s more or less a multimedia/entertainment laptop. Use it for work, entertainment, or both. It’s more versatile than what some users may think. The 15.6-inch LCD / IPS panel has a 4K UHD screen mode. The durable hinges allow you to open the lid of the Acer ConceptD 5 CN515-71-712T with one hand.
There are quality wireless technology and Bluetooth that come with this laptop, allowing users to stay connected to the internet with Wi-Fi connections. Bluetooth 5.0 technology comes standard, along with IEEE 802.11 a-b-g-n-ac-ax. Additional features include a front webcam with 1280 x 720 resolution and a microphone for audio/video communication.
As far as quality keyboards go, this one is excellent. The orange backlight looks good behind the keys and makes the typing process easier in dark lighting. The touchpad has the right size and a smooth surface, making it easy to perform gestures, scroll, and click.
