Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7735Z
Source: Laptop Mag
Acer delivers a big 17.3-inch screen and decent performance for an affordable price. In the tradeoff between price and performance, the Acer Aspire 7735Z (4357) strikes a pretty good balance for budget shoppers who want a machine for basic tasks. This notebook’s processing and graphics muscle won’t win over a true multimedia maven’s heart, but users who just want to watch DVDs or Hulu videos will have a satisfying experience. The $348 Toshiba Satellite L355 provides even more bang for your buck, but the $599 7735Z’s more attractive chassis, longer battery life, and more robust feature set (including a memory card reader, HDMI, and webcam) make this budget machine a compelling bargain.

As ever fewer desktop PCs find homes with loving families, we take a look at what might well be yet another nail in their coffin: Acer's newest 17.3in multimedia laptop, the Aspire 7735Z-424G32Mn. Acer's Aspire 7735Z is a reasonably attractive, well-built and (aside from the horrible touchpad buttons) well-designed machine. If you want a large-screen desktop replacement for films and productivity it's a bit of a bargain.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.
