Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7745G-434G1TMN
I liked the trackpad - I know some people cannot stand them – and I even managed to start to get used to the multi gestures. If you want a system to use on a desk and are happy to only have 900 vertical area then this could be the unit for you. I see from the official specifications that the claimed battery life is only 2½ hours so my 3 hours of constant use (without Internet) was good.

Acer makes great media centers, but it didn't put much effort into the Acer Aspire AS7745G-6214.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
