Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5745DG

Acer Aspire 5745DG Review
Source: Slashgear English

There’s no denying that NVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology works, although those who already wear glasses or struggle to remember to charge their phone will likely find the necessary 3D eyewear a frustration. The question we’re left asking is why Acer decided to cut corners on the optical drive, given you’d expect the company to want Aspire 5745DG owners to have access to as much 3D content as possible. With no Blu-ray option, that choice is seriously curtailed.

The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG looks much like your common or garden laptop, but this machine has a pretty neat trick up its sleeve. 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG laptop offers an affordable way of getting into 3D gaming. A Blu-ray drive and faster graphics chip would be welcome though, helping you to take advantage of more 3D content.

There are plenty of reasons to like the Acer Aspire 5745DG, but probably only one reason to buy it; you've got to be won over by the idea of 3D content. If you happen to have a collection of Blu-ray 3D titles or a camera that can take 3D photos, a 3D notebook could be the perfect way to enjoy your media. But let's be honest, that's a pretty big if.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M: Successor of the GeForce GT 335M featuring DirectX 11 support and based on the GF108 chip.

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

370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
