Acer Aspire 1705SCi Desktop Replacement Notebook

 

The Acer Aspire 1705SCi is a true desktop replacement, with a massive screen and the power to match many desktop PCs.

Expert review by:

Acer Aspire 1700

 

Can any computer with an integrated 17in. display really be called a notebook? Perhaps it can. However, any use of the term 'portable' with reference to this 7.1kg monster will certainly raise eyebrows.

Acer Aspire 1703SC

 

This is not the first 'desknote' that we've reviewed (see Protac DeskNote, June 2002, page 37) but in our estimation the Aspire 1703SC is the first system that truly expounds the virtues of true desknote-ism.

First Look: Acer Aspire 1700

 

The Aspire 1700 from Acer is the first Windows-based notebook with a 17in. display. So what's the attraction of this 7kg monster? We take a first look.

very good laptop, has everything needed

Consumer review by:

Acer Aspire 1705 SCi

 

Over all the spec for this machine is excellent. But its rating is lowered by the terrible support and quality of parts. I bought this laptop on 29/10/03. It arrived with a dead pixel in the bottom left of the screen (not covered in the guarantee)....

Ideal for the presentation work I need and the hard drive backs up my desktop better than anything else around. It's the tops for me.

too noisy!!!

Consumer review by:

Acer Aspire 1705 SCi

 

A desktop replacement of power good screen , good speed , DVD backup (with backup my pc.) Its a very effective piece of kit if you need the power or want to future proof a bit in a non-64 bit kind of way. No real complaints . battery life cannot...

Great specs, but the noise is simply horrible -- the fan is on all the time, and after a few hours I have to stop using it.
