Comment

AMD Radeon HD 6740G2:

Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 6650M and a 6620G APU graphics card (e.g. found in the AMD 3500M CPU) or a HD 6730M and 6520G.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


A8-3500M:

Llano quad-core APU clocked at 1.5-2.4 GHz (Turbo Core) featuring an integrated Radeon 6620G (400 cores, 400MHz) graphics card.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.592 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


76.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
