Source: PC Advisor English
A 15-inch laptop, the Acer Aspire 5745G brings a much-needed facelift to Acer's Aspire laptop line. The laptop comes with switchable Nvidia graphics and is a very good contender for a predominant home laptop. The Acer Aspire 5745G laptop is definitely better looking than previous Aspire laptops  and sells for a price of £699. For that price, you get a 15-inch laptop that offers a decent balance between performance and features. The laptop has switchable graphics to conserve battery life as well. Unlike the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG, the Acer Aspire 5745G isn’t the best mainstream laptop for home use, nor does it have the premium feel and extensive features offered by the Dell Studio 15. But the Acer Aspire 5745G is still a pretty good deal and should interest you if you desire better graphics performance than the Dell Studio 15 or a bigger screen than the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG.

Good performance and battery life are the highlights of this otherwise unremarkable laptop. However, for the money a larger hard drive and more RAM would have been nice, while the design and build quality are average. Overall it does the job, but there are better options available.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

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

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
