Supercharged notebook from 24,000 K. Review of Acer with Gemstone Blue design

We showed her the latest Acer in the ordinary. At that time it was a pre-sale sample, today we have tested it as a sharp piece of sale. What can you expect from him?

Because we have it Aceru Aspire 6920 they gave one flax, we will not stretch the flax for a day. People liked the design in the area, you can judge it in the photo gallery. First impressions and a detailed description can be found in the original article, when we were the first to sell a sample of this model in Europe.

Exclusive first in Europe: we have a laptop from Acer

Design, that’s about you b

The new Acer could sell a good price or sunny technical parameters, thanks to the interesting shapes, but probably the design will probably decide for customers. On closer inspection, I can remind you of some elements from other notebooks – Sony has a similarly closed display hinge, HP Pavilion reminds me of the area in front of the keyboard with integrated touchpad, Apple with a logo on the top of the notebook… the old Gemstone design concept, which is not similar to other laptops.

The new concept develops, Acer called this design Gemstone Blue. This is mainly due to the living blue diodes in the joints of the display (permanently lit when connected to the charger), the second matter is the lid of the display with a dark blue tint. It is also holographic and contains five gossips, especially in daylight, so the notebook catches the eye at first glance. At night, catch the Acer logo again.



The construction is mk

The display has an atypical 16 ″ flap, which was reflected not only in the dimensions, but also in the strength of the structure. After a while of fighting the laptop, put it in a backpack for 15.4 ″ laptops, but we do not recommend its money. The first messenger of all Aspir is to be a home multimedia center, so laptops are designed regardless of weight and in this case equal strength. probably with a long bend, which is due to its relatively thin profile. However, rigidity is sufficient on the desk or when foaming the laptop at home.

The photo shows the equipment, in the tested model we can find two USB 2.0, ExpressCard / 54 slot, 6 in 1 card flow (SD, MMC, MMCplus, MS, MS PRO, xD), HDMI port with HDCP, VGA for external monitor, Consumer infrared (CIR) port, ethernet, analog modem, 0.3Mpix webcam and three audio connectors with S / PDIF support. It is complemented by a DVD SuperMulti optical drive, and Blu-ray may also be available in all models. Connectivity is provided by an 802.11 a / g / wireless adapter and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR for better signal reception.

Exhausted? So this is a multimedia center. You can notice this after opening the laptop, on the left you will find a large touch control for controlling Acer Arcade Deluxe applications (functionality similar to Widows Media Centrum). In the Vist environment, the driver agreed with Windows Media Player, it was not available for other applications (Winamp, JetAudio). In the optional equipment, we will find a TV tuner and length control, but the tested model did not have above-standard functions.



How are we doing?

The Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz takes care of the challenges. With the performance, it is very important that it is one of the best among Intel processors. Thanks to its use, the Acer bag struck the final price of the laptop very low, according to our opinion. Together with 4 GB of RAM, a 250 GB disk and the NVIDIA GeForce 9500M graphics card, it was possible to assemble a very powerful pot suitable for games.

The table on the right shows the results of the test. Total performance of PCMark05 benchmark values. Bn laptops reach around 3000 points in this program, gaming around 6000 points. The tested Acer is in the middle, offering very sunny performance for its price.

Grafick card from NVIDIe to the latest on the market. It contains 32 unified stream processors, supports DirectX 10 and is equipped with 512 MB of its own memory. It’s not a game market, the performance could be compared to the star card 8600M GT. Today, it is enough for sun edges and new titles, and it can be recommended.

We forgave us with the help of the HDTach program vkon pevnho disku Western Digital. Its capacity is very sunny 250 GB, the plates are ot speed 5400 rpm. With a transfer rate of 48.7 MB / s, currently one of the fastest disks in a notebook, a response time of 17.3 ms also belongs to better values. During the bhu it was a little audible, the vibration of the heads overflowed the injection on the processor.

The last currency of the bite became operan pam. We forgot this with the HWiNFO32 program and Acer was pleasantly surprised by opt. Data throughput memory composed of a pair of 2GB modules at 2527 MB / s, which is one of the best values ​​in the world of notebooks.

The following graph shows it vkon processor for operations in fixed enclosure (CPU – all storage inputs) and in floating enclosure (FPUuseful in CAD, spreadsheets…). The tested Acer is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor, which is clocked at a frequency of 2.0 GHz, has 2 MB of L2 cache and its bus clock at 667 MHz. Find out more about the other two compared processors in a recent review here. We designed the processor power with the help of the SiSoftware Sandra program.


How Acer did in practice

Display – atypical 16 ″ display with an atypical resolution of 1366 x 768. It is suitable for watching a movie, but this document requires a little more scrolling, not with today’s standard 1280 x 800. The height is pleasant when working, it allows comfortable placement of sweaten windows. The high contrast of colors ensures the glossy surface of the panel, so to limit the glare of the surrounding light sources, it is necessary to think about tilting the display. The maximum height to which the display can be tilted is not too large (max. 135 °). The bl color is a bit dark and the colors are slightly distorted to blue. Overall, we rate it as very good.

Sound – what a multimedia laptop without sound. It’s not easy with laptops, but Acer is one of the best for a year. The situation is no different here, the Dolby Home Theater sound system plays very loudly, and one “bass” on the bottom of the notebook is connected to the old speakers with the same sound. The bass is a bit of an exaggerated beat, but the speakers add the sound needed on their frequencies, and among laptops, the Aspire definitely excels with its sound.

Keyboard – nothing can be criticized on the page and the size cannot be criticized, we have a reminder to bend. The right side of the keyboard is soft, so the grip is not completely secure. After a few days you can get used to it and it does not affect the functionality, but the hard keyboard is much more pleasant when writing. Let’s add a note about multimedia keys to the keyboard – you can find so many of them on a small laptop. This is due to the touch panel on the left side, which is very sensitive and can be locked, so you don’t have to be inadvertently running a movie / music. Further buttons can be found on the right keyboard (for example, for quick launch of an e-mail client), their function is changed via the Acer Launch Manager application.



Hlunost – in this respect ns bohuel Aspire pli did not sweat, from domcho machine we would expect silent bh. But the laptop can be heard when it is turned on, it wouldn’t even bend any more, when playing games, the injection goes to high speed and the laptop is crowded. At night the laptop is ruiv.

Vdr – Do not wait for a long time from the multimedia machine for a long time. In the editorial test, when we do not want to play music in Windows Media Player at maximum screen brightness, Acer bet 1 hour and 58 minutes. Maximum vdr when the notebook is not used and the brightness of the display is reduced to a minimum, in 2 hours and 57 minutes. When WiFi was turned on and iDNES was viewed, the laptop lasted about two and a quarter hours. The battery has a capacity of 71 Wh.

Weight and dimensions they are not suitable for foam, which I changed in the chapter on construction. The weight of the laptop is 3.28 kg, another 520 grams of adapters. With dimensions of 385 x 275 x 43.6 / 39.3 mm, the notebook fits into standard brackets for 15.4 ″ notebooks after a short talk, two backpacks and two gates over the shoulder were tested.


For a given price, you can have an original laptop with very sunny performance. I do not recommend frequent foaming, Aspire is primarily a home notebook replacing table mats. The plus is a good display, one of the most inappropriate is noise. The performance of the notebook sweats, thanks to its design it will also look valuable on the desktop.
