Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7745G-434G50Bn

79% Review Acer Aspire 7745G Notebook | Notebookcheck
Multimedia delight & display frustration. Acer presents a 17.3" multimedia notebook with the Aspire 7745G, which should apeal to both gamers and film fanatics thanks to ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 5850 (DDR3-VRAM) and the integrated Blu-Ray-Drive.

The Acer Aspire 7745G may not be the fastest performer, but it's still got enough horsepower under the bonnet to handle heavy multitasking. We also like the classy, business-like design and the impressive keyboard and trackpad. Its Achilles heel is its screen, though. It just doesn't reach the high standards of the rest of the laptop's components.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850:

The HD 5850 is a slower clocked HD 5870 and is reliant on fast GDDR5 memory to perform in the high-end segment. It is based on the Desktop HD 5770 chip but with a lower clock speed.

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.

17.3": 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.

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