Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5650
Source: Trusted Reviews
It's a sign of the times that we increasingly take connectivity for granted. A few years ago, we wouldn't have expected for our PDAs or laptop to be able to get online unless it was plugged in - now we balk at a product that doesn't have wireless data capabilities. I can clearly remember reviewing one of the earliest notebooks with integrated Wi-Fi and now the age of integrated mobile phone SIM cards has arrived. Back in April, Riyad reviewed the first notebook we'd seen with an integrated HSDPA data card, from Fujitsu Siemens but supporting networks weren't up and running at the time. Now they are, and with a Vodafone data SIM inside this Acer Aspire 5650 notebook we were keen to see what it was like to use. HSDPA is essentially an improved variant of 3G, dubbed by Vodafone as ‘3G broadband’. It offers connection speeds of up to 1.8Mbit/sec compared to only 384Kbit/sec from standard 3G.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce Go 7600: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 is a middle class video card of the 7000 series and suited for games of the year 2006. The performance is very similar to ATI X1600 / X1700. Compared to the desktop 7600 it is clearly slower. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
