Reviews for the Acer Extensa 4630Z

78% Acer Extensa 4630Z

Not quite the HP ProBook, but at a price tag of Rs. 32,350, the Acer Extensa 4630Z is clearly a budget laptop. It doesn't come in with a fingerprint reader or extra business-tuned applications, but gets the basics right. A matte screen, good build quality are other advantages. A well-priced laptop, and a good machine to equip the sales or marketing force with in a company.

The Acer Extensa 4630Z is a capable and highly portable notebook with a very attractive price tag, but as is usually the case, you get what you pay for. In this instance, you give up some performance, but in return you get a low price, long battery life, and easy portability. If you want a full notebook (as opposed to a netbook) for checking e-mail, getting online, and doing basic productivity chores on the go, this system is a very good choice for the money.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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.


T3400: Merom based entry-level Pentium Dual-Core processor with some reduced power saving functions compared to Core 2 Duo CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
