Reviews for the Acer Aspire V7-482PG-9884
On-the-go gaming is always tough for PC gamers. The super-thin Razer Blade is expensive, with some big missed opportunities, and recent small gaming laptops from Alienware and others are still too bulky for easy travel. The Acer Aspire V7 is an everyday ultrabook first, and does a decent job of that, but it also handles mainstream gaming chores, as long as you keep your expectations realistic.

The Acer Aspire V7 isn’t the ultimate Ultrabook, but it’s thin, it’s fast enough for all but the most demanding content-creation tasks, and it’ll play hard-core games (albeit at slightly lower resolution than full HD). I like it a lot.

The Acer Aspire V7 is all about power. In our performance tests it blows away most competitors by posting processor scores 20 percent higher than average and doubling the performance of Intel HD 4600 in 3D games. Only the Asus Zenbook UX51 and Razer Blade are quicker, but both start at $500 more, making this $1,300 system look like a steal.

The Acer Aspire V7 is a portable 15.6 inch laptop and also a comfortable desktop replacement. It features a great battery life and looks very elegant. With a weight of 2 kg and a height of 24mm, it is remarkably thin. Nevertheless it looks spacious and not at all cramped for good productivity. The well built chassis is easily able to house a full-sized, backlit keyboard with a number pad. Its touch screen supports 10-point inputs. The screen resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels is disappointing, but the screen size is perfect for Windows 8 touch use.
The Aspire V7 features the fourth generation Intel Core i7-4500U CPU with a clock rate of 1.8GHz. The lack of a discrete graphics continues the disappointing resolution. So, the device is suitable for casual gamers. Another disadvantage is, that it only features a single USB 3.0 port. But, the sound system is a delight, with the rare ability to produce a decent amount of bass. The location of the speakers on the underside of the laptop is a little unfortunate. Soft surface will muffle the audio. Overall, this machine is a well built and good looking portable or desktop replacement for less intensive tasks with a great battery life. For all that it sets out to be, it definitely beats the competition.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.
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.
Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
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.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 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.
76.33%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
