Acer has always been proud of their Aspire series products. In the third quarter of 2012, Acer has launched a few Aspire series laptops, and one of them is a sophisticated laptop called Acer Aspire V3-771G-73618G1.5TMAII. With the range of capabilities of this laptop, Acer promises the experience of using a computer with the best performance and reliability. Equipped with a 17 inch full-HD display and a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 Pixels, it is a proper desktop replacement. The high resolution presented by this laptop means that it has great multimedia capabilities which makes it so great to be used as a gaming device as well as a multimedia device. Powered by the Intel Core i7 processor, this laptop is a device that can be counted on to perform well in multitasking, multimedia consumption and web surfing. In addition, it has intense graphics capabilities for gaming needs with the high performance Nvidia GeForce graphic card.
However, as a 17-inch desktop replacement, this laptop is quite bulky and heavy at 3.2 kg. Although its weight is comparable to a 15-inch laptop, it still doesn’t offer great portability. This laptop also has a short battery life but it isn’t really a surprise considering the screen size. Being a desktop replacement, it consumes more power to keep performing well. In terms of design, it is really disappointing because Acer has gone with a plain glossy finish. It shows scratches and fingerprints easily and hence it isn’t going to be easy to take care of its body. Overall, this laptop is still a great desktop replacement with gaming and multimedia capabilities. Thus, if you’re looking for a desktop replacement, this laptop is a good option.

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.
An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
