Reviews for the Acer Aspire 4743Z-4861

60% Acer Aspire 4743Z-4861
Source: PC Mag English
If your hands are tied by a tight budget, the Acer Aspire 4743Z-4861 is a smart buy, and a stronger performer than its Pentium-equipped competitors. But budget-priced laptops frequently sacrifice features and performance in the pursuit of a low price, and the 4743Z-4861 gives up plenty to reach its tantalizing low price of $469.99. If you can spend $170 more, you can pick up the speedier and better-outfitted HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl or the Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL5.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
