5.0 out of 5 stars A very well equipped multimedia laptop!, February 23, 2008
This review is from: Acer Aspire 7720-6307 17.0" Laptop (T5450 Intel Core2 Duo mobile processor (1.66Ghz, 2GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive, Vista Premium) (Electronics)
Just got this laptop from an electronics store and absolutely love it!

It runs quiet and cool, but the best feature is the Blu-ray (especially now that the format war is over). Since the Blu-ray player alone costs well over $300, it's a great addition. I'm glad the manufactures equipped the laptop with a WXGA+ screen that can really take advantage of the resolution. And the movies look absolutely gorgeous!

The other great features are the 2GB ram (ample for everyday needs), the Nvidia Geforce 8400 (handles most games very well), the huge 250 GB hard drive. The unit also comes with an ExpressCard/54 slot. Apparently, it can be used to add memory, graphics upgrades and security devices so it should be future proof. Also, the unit comes with Vista Premium instead of Vista Basic and I do prefer it. The two thinks missing from Basic are the fancy Aero interface and Windows Media Center. The Aero interface is a nifty 3D accelerated smoothly animating User Interface which really brings the screen to life. Without it, the desktop looks sort of plain and flat, and the whole OS is a little dull and not as fun. Windows Media Center is a real boon with its interface for using your PC to listen to music, watch video, record TV programs, etc. The manufacturer's likely had this in mind when they built the laptop as the different components complement each other really well.

The only thing that wasn't great was the battery life. For 17" laptops, 2-2:30 hours is average to above average so it's about par.

All in all, a great multimedia laptop which can play Blu-ray movies. I like it so much I think I might buy two!
