Reviews for the Acer eMachines G725

70% eMachines G725-422G25Mi review
Source: Techradar English
Great performance and mobility, but flawed by poor usability and features. The eMachines brand is a sub-division of Acer and offers a more affordable alternative to its consumer Aspire laptops. The G725-422G25Mi is a large-screen, entry-level media centre and is a good choice for those seeking a desktop replacement on a budget. While the power and battery life of the G725 are excellent, the flawed usability and features limit it slightly, so consider your needs to decide which factors are most important to you.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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.


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.

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