Acer packs this 15.6-inch laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor and switchable Nvidia and Intel graphics.

Good performance ; Decent battery life ; Switchable graphics ; Solid ergonomics

Average build quality ; Only 3GB of RAM ; Small hard drive

Model shown is the physically identical Aspire 5553G.

Acer Aspire 5745G 971096 review

 

But even at this price you'd expect a little more from the Acer Aspire 5745G. You'd be pleased to find a fast processor in the form of the Intel Core i5 450M running at 2.4GHz. The Acer Aspire 5745G 971096 also boasts nVidia's 512 GeForce 310M GPU...

The lower battery life is offset somewhat by the rapid overall system performance. With 108 points scored in WorldBench 6, the Acer Aspire 5745G 971096 takes a convincing lead, however we'd like to see better battery life.

Acer Aspire 5745G review

 

Gone is the drab, uninspiring look of past Aspire laptops - the Acer Aspire 5740G, for example - the new Acer Aspire 5745G laptop is almost identical to the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T and Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG laptops, in terms of looks....

A 15-inch laptop, the Acer Aspire 5745G brings a much-needed facelift to Acer's Aspire laptop line. The laptop comes with switchable Nvidia graphics and is a very good contender for a predominant home laptop. The Acer Aspire 5745G laptop is definitely...

Refined look ; Core i7 performance mixed with a GeForce GT 330M is a great balance ; Four USB ports

No Bluetooth or 5GHz 802.11n is an odd omission for the price

Acer's 5745G almost hits that perfect note between price and performance — so long as you don't care about Bluetooth or 5GHz 802.11n.

Acer's popular Aspire laptop series gets a facelift with the 15-inch Aspire 5745G laptop. But does it have more than mere looks?

Better looking than previous Aspire laptops ; Switchable Nvidia GeForce GT 330M, Intel GMA HD graphics ; Very good overall performance ; Gesture-enabled touchpad ; Good for casual gaming

Battery life ; Glossy screen lid attracts fingerprints

A 15-inch laptop, the Acer Aspire 5745G brings a much-needed facelift to Acer's Aspire laptop line. The laptop comes with switchable Nvidia graphics and is a very good contender for a predominant home laptop.

Great gaming laptop, acer has done it again.

 

I have found that this is a great laptop as far as performance is concerned. As I am a gamer, and I do game designing, I constantly need a powerful computer, but being a student, I also need portability. I find that this laptop does what I want it to...

Fast ; Large Storage ; Number Pad ; Excellent Graphics ; Reliable

Short Battery Life ; Most USB ports on Right Hand Side ; Not robust enough for me

Consumer review by:

Great product!

 

Very fast startup from standby low-power state. Cold startup takes right under a minute with Windows 7. Screams through most any visual chore you can throw at it. GPU takes over nicely with settings you choose in NVIDIA's control panel. Seamless...

None other than maybe needing a lighted keyboard (as all laptops should in my opinion)

Good So Far

 

Fast Gets the job done havn't had a chance to throw games at it

It didnt come with a mouse , but most dont

Consumer review by:

Impressive

 

The first couple weeks were difficult because of learning the in's and out's of the laptop, but that is true of any computer. And I think I've addressed most of the ones I could think of here. *Windows 7 is an Acer branded version. I formatted and...

Clear screen ; Lightweight yet heavy duty build quality ; Large hard drive ; Good processor ; Great graphics card ; Number pad ; Runs very cool (barely gets hot, even when rendering HD video) ; FN button to turn off screen backlight instantly ; 4 USB...

FIXED: To save power, computer shuts off DVD drive, sometimes the drive won't come back on until restart. Could be fixed by uninstalling or disabling software ; FIXED: Headphones make constant clicking noise with included driver. To fix, go to device...

Nice Buy Except...

 

If it wasn't for the webcam I would keep this laptop, but sadly I will have to return it.

I really like the way this laptop looks and functions online and offline. The screen size is just right for what I need. It runs well

The webcam is nothing like I expected. The quality is bad and Acer doesn't have any drivers. The "camera control" tab is not accessible
