It’s been such a long time since I review an Acer product. Basically, I do not have any product with their high end line up. Almost all of them are great and it always becomes a popular one to choose among the users. But, different thing happened on the low end line up where we cannot expect such a good one with great performance and build quality. But here, there is one product that makes me interested to review it. It’s Aspire 1 A114-31-C4HH that comes with 1080p display in such good or cheap rice. The price is only under 300 dollars and we get much good thing here.
I really want to see it deeper and know it better especially in term of battery and performance. I have to say it as not a speed demon, but it lets on you on doing anything like processing word documents and surfing through the internet.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see it better and find its pros and cons. To make it easier for you to understand, lets we jump into the article.
First, let’s talk about display because this feature is the biggest selling point here. The 14 inch screen is well equipped with 1920 by 1080 resolution which is pretty good in comparable with other products that only come with 1,366 by 768 resolution in the similar price. The display itself is using a IPS panel, so do not expect much from it.
The screen is bright and vivid, but it’s not the brightest around. I can still find some grid patterns on its screen when I watch a HD movie. The patter is not that visible, but I could still find it. Overall, it does not look bad at all and still looks pretty good to watch Youtube or doing some web surfing. For this case, I will give them five stars as the display is really amazing for the price.back to menu ↑
Connectivity And Storage
Port selections are not big problem. On the right side, there are two USB 2.0 ports for connecting printer and mouse, and headphone jack that usable to connect our speaker or headphone. On the left side, we will find a USB 3.0 port, card reader slot, and HDMI port. It still has a single USB 3.0 port, so do not worry on transferring the data.
The speaker itself is located on the bottom which is common for this case. The sounds are loud enough and very good overall. As for connectivity, it comes via 802.11ac WIFI that already becomes a standard and Bluetooth 4.0 that very promising on sending our data.
The price is so cheap for the specs, so what about the bad thing from it? Well, the bad thing is actually located on its storage that only equipped with 32 GB storage. For me, 32 GB is too small since the applications and games right now are so hunger in space. Luckily, there is a micro SD slot that we could use for external storage. The maximum size is 128 GB and some applications including Microsoft Office could be installed on this storage.

Performance And Battery Life
Both of those things are pretty decent here. As for the performance, it has Intel Celeron N3450 which is standard dual core chip with 1.1 GHZ clock. It could do all of daily task easily, but not in extreme condition. I am able to stick with it for many hours on browsing and editing files and I am pretty happy with the system.
For battery consumption, it lasts for more around 7 hours and 7 hours 30 minutes during my both test. It’s a very good consumption in my opinion since most laptop might only last for around 5 and 6 hours. It will last even a day in any normal usage during your school, so it should be good for you.
Those are my information about it. It seems that this laptop would be a popular choice with its great specs in cheap price. If you are looking for decent machine to do any daily basis, then this should be good enough in my opinion. Well, everything backs on you on deciding, so feel free to make any placement. I just hope this information is useful for you. Thank you very much and see you again.
