  • I know that Acer is positioned in the area of multimedia laptops, but I've pushed him gently towards the gaming area and that due to the configuration

      I was excited when I heard that I got an Acer Aspire 5942G to test. You’re probably wondering from where it comes so much joy. But how could you not be excited when a laptop comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor, ATI Radeon HD 5650, with a capacity of 640GB HDD and 8 GB RAM, exactly a few days after the big launch of Starcraft 2. I know that Acer is positioned in the area of multimedia laptops, but I’ve pushed him gently towards the gaming area and that due to the configuration. I think the Taiwanese manufacturer wanted to reconcile both sides, removing the laptop’s new model positioned at the interface between multimedia and gaming. For those passionate about music, video, photography, this model is ready to meet the most demanding requirements. You can process your quiet vacation pictures or video clips from concerts mount without wondering if your laptop can do it.

      But let us not forget the gamers, those who wish to develop their driving skills and snipers. This laptop is for the occasional gamer who is satisfied with medium graphic performance. At first glance, it really does not seem “horrible. ” Acer Aspire 5942G is a stylish laptop with a nice design and good taste I would say. There are several elements that I emphasize, such as the small concave areas of the hinges. Housing and the glossy black interior is


      complemented by the keyboard with LED backlight, very quiet and pleasant to the touch.

      The touchpad, and the palm rest well defined, has two left and right mouse buttons. To the left of the keyboard are three separate buttons: 1 a rapid activation and deactivation of the Wi-Fi card, 2 another one to control Bluetooth and 3 the latter to launch Acer automatic backup program Backup Manager. To the right of the keyboard is a special area with multimedia control buttons, including controls “play” “stop” or volume control. As a general matter, the whole notebook provides a pleasant feeling of solid construction, while the finishes are made of plastic. Acer Aspire 5942G is remarked by its rounded forms and portability, weighing only 3 kg complete with 6-cell battery and measuring a mere 2. 6 cm thick.

      I know that 3 kg are still quite a lot for a notebook. Acer Aspire 5942G laptop proved to be complex on the outside, with enough ports to connect peripherals: mobile phone, camera, printer, mouse, headphones / speakers, networking, etc. Their location is as follows: On the left have power port, RJ-45 network port, a VGA port, an HDMI port, a port e-SATA/USB, two USB 2. 0 ports, ports for microphone and speakers / headphones and a PCMCIA port; On the right we have the optical drive Blu-Ray, a USB port and card reader. The display which has a 15. 6 inch ...


      • diagonal and a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and is HD ready.

        I was satisfied with its colors and depth. It is not perfect display. The display has enough problems encountered in most glossy displays. The picture is not as clear seen from the side, just as the colors are not as vivid and rich in nuance. But enough with the exterior of this machine. For full technical specifications of Acer Aspire 5942G, specifically the 5942G-728G64Bn model, these include: Intel Core i7-620M, 8 GB RAM, 640GB hard drive and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with a MB video memory, 128 bit bandwidth.

        Now that we know the configuration, let’s get moving to more serious things, namely the performance. We laugh, joke, talk about external configuration, but it is not enough. Many users do not know what are the mega and giga outlined above. But they know that the laptop is good or “bad” depending on how different applications are run. Well, there are users who want something very good, if it can run the latest games it would be great, but it would be pretty expensive. Acer 5942G has shown that it can also run the latest games.

        Starcraft 2 has been run very well with the settings to a minimum - about 150 FPS, but moved well and with high settings - about 28-30 FPS. But do not try to run it at ultra-high

        settings because you will not manage to pull more than 17 FPS. You can run FEAR 2, Far Cry 2, Crysis, but if you do not have very large claims. I was not too happy with the result of hard disk. He proved to be the most lagging one from those tested so far. Access time was 19.

        7 ms and the average transfer was 66 MB / s. Configuration is balanced, has a nice design, is sleek, futuristic, but the sound is not up to expectations. I would have liked a better sound, more particularly, to a combination of Acer and a leading producer of in car audio either, but it was not to be. I had to settle for modest sound offered by the two stereo speakers and Dolby Surround with Acer Tuba CineBass booster low frequency sounds. Do not get me wrong! The sound is not bad at all, but it could be better. I prefer to pass rapidly over this chapter and tell you that the 5942G comes with a 64-bit operating system - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium , but with a wide range of applications and programs offered by Acer and its partners.

        Some are extremely useful, significantly alleviating your work, others are annoying. The autonomy was approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. If we run a HD movie on CD, autonomy decreases to about two hours. Yet it is a good range for a multimedia laptop.
