Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7 A715-73G-779W

Acer Aspire 7 (A715-73G) review – the proto-ConceptD 5 is revealed
Source: Laptop Media English
This laptop is a great device for people that enjoy light gaming from time to time, or need powerful hardware for work, but need it to be in an ultrabook disguise. It can be directly compared to the ASUS ZenBook 14 UX534 and the MSI PS63 Modern, although, the Aspire 7 lacks the innovation of the former, but has more powerful hardware than the latter.

80% Acer Aspire 7 2019 review (A715-73G model – Core i7-8705G, Radeon RX Vega)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 2019 Aspire 7 is an interesting notebook. It's compact and light, doesn't sacrifice on functionality or screen quality, and being powered by an Intel KabyLake-G hardware platform, it offers a rather unique mix of performance and efficiency in its class. Acer did skimp on a few aspects though, like the typing experience or battery size, among others, that's why I feel this needs to come down in price in order to become competitive, and I expect that to happen in the months to come.

AMD Vega M GL / 870: Integrated graphics card in the slower Kaby Lake-G SoCs. Offers 20 CUs = 1280 shaders at 931 - 1011 MHz, 4 GB HBM2 graphics memory (on the same package as the GPU and CPU). The TDP is specified at 65 Watt.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


i7-8705G: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 3.1 - 4.1 GHz. Integrates 4GB fast HBM2 graphics memory that may also be used as a CPU cache and including the high TDP of 65 Watts may lead to a higher CPU performance compared to the similar Core i7-7920HQ. Similar to the Core i7-8706G, but without vPro support. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


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