Reviews for the Acer Aspire 9503EWSMi

80% 17inch widescreen and great value but performance suffers
Source: vnunet.com English
When asking manufacturers for their best notebook at £699, we hardly expected a 17in widescreen model to turn up. So hats off to Acer for putting together the Aspire 9503EWSMi. It towers over everything else here, weighing 3.6kg, offering a maximum screen resolution of 1,440 x 900 (WXGA) and containing a full-size keyboard with separate number pad. However, while the chassis is of gargantuan proportions, its innards are dwarf-like. An Intel Celeron M 370 (1.5GHz) is aided by just 512MB of DDR2 Ram, which combine to achieve a low Sysmark score of 124. The PCmark result was an unexceptional 1,607.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


370: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

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

Acer reviews


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
