What's the battery life like with web browsing and not using the dvd drive?

Thanks.

Is this worth it then? i need a laptop for work (programming and basic design)... but i would also like to play RTS games on the bus :P.. i hear the battery is crap but for 320£..... very tempted even if i dislike amd cpu's/gpus!
Will this CPU gpu combination edit video as well as i3/i5?
I'd love to buy this one if it has a matt (not mirror/glossy) screen. Anyone knows?

From the benchmarking I've read it's not great for multi tasking. It is very much designed for gaming. I can't say for sure but I think it could struggle with heavy video editing and/or encoding
It looks ok for medium settings on recent games not too bad a GPU whether I would call this a "gaming" laptop" or not is open to debate. You can game on HD 4000 and also s SLI 7970 so Acer are pushing it a bit to call this a dedicated gamer. Benchmarks here notebookcheck.net/AMD…tml
It's still based on 6000 series architecture 40nm

The most glossy screen I've ever come across I'm afraid. Tough to look at and the viewing angles are basically impossible, no matter how you view it.
Bought this few months ago for my daughter, and for 300ish you can't go wrong!

Gaming laptop huh? Thinking of moving Skyrim over to a PC, instead of the Xbox for access to mods and what not, as well as some other games, how would this handle? And if it is not appropriate, what kind of thing would I be looking for? Cheers guys.
Hi, bought this laptop last time round when it stated USB 3.0 and 1x 4gb config, which dabs has agreed error and will be refunding me back £10.00 and providng a 1x 4gb memory stick free

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=4

You can over clock the cpu using K10stat154 and my scores are:

Processor: 7.3 (3.0ghz on all cores constant through k10stat)
Mem: 5.9 (2x 2gb 1333mhz - states 1066 on site but has 1333mhz installed but will install to 6gb 1x2gb &1x4gb via free ram)
Graphics: 6.6
Gaming graphics: 6.6
HDD: 6.5 (Delete a few bloat, disk clean and defrag)

To get the graphics score, ensure you update to latest driver:

Driver package: 8.982-120727a-145014C-ATI
Catalyst Version 12.8

The Laptop runs in cross fire modes with the 6620g & 7670m which is great. So far all games and been working well, and get even more FPS when overclocked)

Great value for money and do recommend even at this price.

Audio is excellent - uses Dolby Advance audio with virtual surrond sound. Even better when you uses a gaming headset

Wow those are brilliant specs for the price. I got a Sony Vaio for £500 with only slightly better specs and I thought that was a great deal!

I do wonder if the the hard drive is 5400 or 7200rpm? The former is too slow for me, not that it would matter in gaming unless you were playing an MMO.

Would this laptop be enough to run UDK? Can't find anything for the AMD Cpu.
does anyone know any cheap/good RAM upgrade kits for this?

Crucials memory adviser gives the following:

Sell the 4 gig for £10 on eBay, remember cashback and you'll get 8 gig fitted for less than £20

Don't forget 30% Quidco on eBay Electronics? I'm assuming it will work?

Performance wise it benchmarks at around the same score as the i3-340M. Some of that power is spread onto other cores though, as this is quad core and the i3 is dual. So expect that level of performance, except if a program/game does not support multi-threading.

As the APU has 6520G integrated with it does anyone know if it would be possible to use it in crossfire with the 7670M GPU in it?, I know that some Laptops allow the Integrated graphics and dedicated graphics cards to work together.
found a thread for this on notebookreview: forum.notebookreview.com/ace…tml

page 3 has the service manual, and last page has settings for k10stat for overclocking, and "i5 like performance"
So this would be worth buying as i currently have an ACER aspire 5552 and am about to lose it. This seems better all round but i know little about pc stuff?
You'll get two years tops from this 'quality acer' product. Built NOT to last. Cold.

Why are all budget "gaming" laptops outfitted with AMD quad cores? Quad core makes no sense for a gaming machine. There's loads of i3 and i5 intel laptops in this form factor for £350-£500, but very few of them seem to have dedicated graphics. Why? How much does it cost to add a 525M or similar to a budget laptop? The market makes no sense to me. What's the point of having a high-end i5 processor without dedicated graphics?

A bit like this . Was i right in buying the 5560g over this, just found it now on eBay after purchasing the 5560g :'(. I use my laptop for university/casual gaming. How big is the difference? USB 3.0 as well

If you wanted to play games the Acer is better as the Asus integrated graphics card isn't great.
Yodal delivery great as usual.
Laptop left under recycle bin by front door. Item was supposed to require a signature. Lucky I got back just before the heavy rain started or somebody nicked it.
