Acer Aspire 5745: эксперименты с имиджем продолжаются
19 March 2013
Excerpt: Acer продолжает совершенствовать дизайн своих ноутбуков, что и понятно: для того, чтобы быть понятым покупателем, чтобы оставаться на гребне волны, недостаточно просто имеет оптимальное соотношение цена/качество. Нужно заинтересовывать потребителя, баловать, интриговать — в хорошем смысле.
Excerpt: Packing in nVidia-powered graphics, Acer Aspire 5745DG has an nVidia GeForce 425M chip and up to 16GB of RAM squashed in. The 5745DG comes with a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 dual-core processor and has a 15.6-inch LED backlit full high-definition enabled screen.
Excerpt: This Aspire delivers solid performance and lets you play games in 3D using Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision technology. It's not the most advanced notebook of its kind, but it's a good choice for trying 3D without breaking the bank.
Pros: On-target performance for the price, Discrete graphics chip, 3D-capable screen, Good battery life
Cons: Narrow screen viewing angles, Too much bloatware, No native support for 2D-to-3D photo/video conversions, No Blu-ray drive
Summary: Overall, 3D notebooks are still a work in progress, and both the software and content have a ways to go before this technology will be more widely adopted. But considering most 3D notebooks that use 120-MHz displays and active shutter glasses cost well over $1,000, it's nice to see that Acer is aggressively pricing the 5745DG. Its understated--some may say bland--design won't scare off non-gamers, nor will its $999 price tag.
Pros: Integrated easy-to-use 3D technology, Inexpensive for a 3D notebook, Strong overall performance
Cons: Plain design, Mediocre audio, Limited viewing angles, No Blu-ray option
Conclusion: There's no denying that NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology works, although those who already wear glasses or struggle to remember to charge their phone will likely find the necessary 3D eyewear a frustration. The question we're left asking is why Acer decided to cut corners on the optical drive, given you'd expect the company to want Aspire 5745DG owners to have access to as much 3D content as possible. With no Blu-ray option, that choice is seriously curtailed.
Acer Aspire AS5745PG-3882 Review: Touch Me, Touch Me, Touch Me
27 September 2010
Conclusion: In all we were surprised by how useful the touchscreen was in this package and while there is no intelligent switching for graphics we still remain impressed with the overall package. Given the overall build quality and decent keyboard it is worth checking out for users who want a touch screen on their notebook, so long as you don’t mind connecting to external speakers.
Pros: Sturdy, Good TouchScreen, Plenty of Power
Cons: Attracts fingerprints on lid and screen easily, TouchPortal software is touchy, User must switch between graphics, Really quiet speakers
Excerpt: High definition may have been the buzzword of recent years, but the two letters that best define the 2010 multimedia experience are undoubtedly 3 and D. Having appeared to have peaked in the '80s, 3D technology is now back in the limelight and seemingly destined for mainstream domination.
Summary: The most accurate way to classify the 5745PG-3882 is as a mainstream multimedia notebook. As long as serious gaming isn’t on your do-list, the 5745PG-3882 will serve you well with media and nearly any application. This alone presents a great value at less than $900; factor in the multitouch screen and the 5745PG-3882 becomes a compelling option for non-gamers.
Pros: Great for movies and audio; strong multithreaded content-creation performance; multitouch display.
Acer Aspire 5745PG Hands On and First Impressions (Video)
26 August 2010
Excerpt: The new Acer Aspire 5745PG notebook is a sleek and sexy looking notebook on the outside, but like so many things in life it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. In this case it’s not just the Intel Core i5 processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU with 1GB RAM and CUDA — it’s a multitouch screen. That’s right, the entire 15.6″ screen is a multitouch surface that can be used in the standard Windows 7 interface or in a special touch-designed mode.
