Reviews for the Acer Aspire 9500
Source: Laptop Mag
Entertainment notebooks usually come in two sizes: large and very large. Acer’s Aspire 9500 breaks that mold with a slim 17-inch footprint that you can take on the road. It’s a very good machine for watching DVDs, listening to music, and even watching and recording TV. The system’s high-end hardware will make any multimedia maven happy. For a 17-inch laptop, the Aspire 9500 favors a slim-and-sexy appearance over a fat all-in-one approach. A gunmetal silver-and-black exterior masks a tight form factor, which is uniquely possible for a Taiwanese manufacturer like Acer because it actually designs and builds its own notebooks, from the BIOS to the motherboards.

ATI Mobility Radeon X700: ATI Mobility Radeon X700 is the middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X000 series (the 1000 series). Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA Go 6600. Technically it is comparable with the desktop X700 graphic chip + energy saving functions.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.
