Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7520G

80% Acer Aspire 7520-6A1G08Mi

The Acer Aspire 7520-6A1G08Mi (£399 inc VAT) is a great example, as this machine not only packs in a dual-core processor, but is also a very feature-rich laptop. Perhaps the most telling aspect of the Aspire is its screen. The 17-inch Super-TFT display is considerably large, and it's a testament to Acer's pricing policy that it's one of very few such panels available at this price point. What particularly impressed us was the brightness and quality of the display. The large screen allows for a near full-sized keyboard as well as a numeric keypad to be fitted. The keyboard is clip-mounted, which means it's held in place by clips around its side.

The Acer Aspire 7520 is not for gamers, nor is it a multimedia machine. It’s for someone who needs a PC for e-mail, Web surfing, and word processing, and would prefer a larger screen for work and watching movies. If your needs are basic and you’re on a budget, this notebook is worth checking out. However, in this size category we prefer the design of the Dell Inspiron 1720 and HP Pavilion dv9700 series.

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 / 7700 for laptops and technically a higher clocked 8400M GT. The performance is slightly above the 7600 / 7700 and, therefore, it can represent DirectX9 games fluently. For DirectX 10 effects, the power of the card is not sufficient.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


In 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 2.0 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).

17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.7 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
