Great Application Performance; Good Touchpad; Bright Display; Good Battery Life; Blu-Ray Drive; Large Hard Drive; 3D Picture Rendering

Modest Variety of Ports; Uncomfortable Port Arrangement; Low Contrast; Viewing Angles; High Heat Emission; CPU Throttling under Heavy Use

3D-capable Notebooks with a 120 Hz display like the Asus G51J, the Asus G53JW or the Toshiba Satellite A665.

Acer Aspire 5745DG


This entertainment-focused 3D notebook is inexpensive for what it offers, but leaves us wanting more.

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...

Acer Aspire 5745DG Review


3D, if you believe the marketing hype, is the future of displays, and so with so many of us sitting in front of computer screens for a fair portion of the day, why shouldn't they get in on the action as well? Acer‘s Aspire 5745DG promises 3D...

For most users, those compromises are unlikely to be worth the benefits. 120Hz displays on notebooks are relatively rare today, but as 3D Vision gains traction we imagine that will change; holding off will also give GPUs a chance to catch up and offer...

Does this desktop replacement have the innards to stand up to Acer's claims?

While the Acer's GPU holds it back from being a gaming beast, it's a great everyday app rig that packs usable HD capabilities.

Acer Aspire 5745DG-3855


The Acer Aspire 5745DG-3855 is by no means the first true-3D-capable laptop to hit the market (or our labs), but it is the least expensive one we've seen so far. Priced at $999.99, this 15-inch entertainment notebook is considerably cheaper than...

On-target performance for the price ; Discrete graphics chip ; 3D-capable screen ; Good battery life

Narrow screen viewing angles ; Too much bloatware ; No native support for 2D-to-3D photo/video conversions ; No Blu-ray drive

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.

An affordable 3D Vision laptop, but it's clear the technology is still in its infancy

Acer Aspire 5745DG-374G32Mnks


3D Vision produces mixed results, with some games looking better than others

3D Vision; Battery life; Powerful graphics; Decent performance

Not suited to powerful programs; A bit bulky

The Acer Aspire 5745DG-374G32Mnks is a decent multimedia performer, and you won't find Nvidia 3D Vision much cheaper at the moment. But the technology is still in its infancy and not without its hitches, so aim to try out the 3D feature in-store before...

With a 120Hz display and Nvidia's wireless shutter glasses, this affordable 15.6in laptop gives you 3D on the go.

Acer Aspire 5745DG review


The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG laptop offers an affordable way of getting into 3D gaming. A Blu-ray drive and faster graphics chip would be welcome though, helping you to take advantage of more 3D content.

Immersive 3D effect ; Great keyboard ; Slick design ; Decent processor

No Blu-ray drive ; 3D gaming sometimes overpowers the GPU

The Acer Aspire 5745DG provides a fascinating insight into what laptops might be like in the future, but its specification isn't quite powerful enough to make the best use of its 3D features. We'd like to see the next Aspire 3D model pack in a faster...
