Acer Aspire 1692WLMI
Reviews for the Acer Aspire 1692WLMI
Source: IT Reviews Archive.org version
The laptop computing boom has, we suspect, come as rather good news for Acer. Few manufacturers have come up with quite as comprehensive a line, and few have managed, at the affordable end of the range, to pack quite so much into such a lightweight portable computer. The Aspire 1692WLMi isn't one of the company's lightest - it weighs in at workable 3kg - but it is a good indicator of where Acer is doing much of its business. For a price that comes in just shy of £670 (which we found easily by shopping around), VAT and Windows XP included, you get a Pentium M 740 running at 1.73GHz, backed up by an 80GB hard disk drive, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a super-crisp, 15.4-inch, WXGA, widescreen, TFT display.

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.
