The Acer Aspire 7 A717-72g series has been available for some time. They manufacture laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices for individuals and enterprises. The Aspire 7 A717-72G-534E was very recently released. This device stands out due to its outstanding cost-effectiveness.
Its quick processing time and vibrant display make it a good choice for consumers. This essay will go through each of these components in depth.
The 17.3-inch IPS display on the Acer Aspire 7 A717-72g has a 16:9 aspect ratio. This 1080p wide display offers the greatest focused vision and images, particularly in gaming. In addition to 15-inch gaming laptops, a few 17-inch notebooks are available, making this a viable option for gamers.
The Acer Aspire 7 A717-72g is predominantly black and has massive bezels surrounding the display. The top cover and the lid have a cold metal feel, and the brushed metal texture makes them simple to mark. The inside of the case is lined with a slip-resistant substance. The silver Acer logo on the lid, ornamental strips around the base and touchpad, and silver Aspire-series hinge are all great accents.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is the company’s third-fastest GPU, following the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. (and their respective Max-Q variants). It is built on Nvidia’s latest Pascal architecture and includes 6 GB of GDDR5-VRAM (effectively 8000 MHz) coupled via a 192-bit bus.
The 16 nm GP106 GPU was initially released in August 2016. It contained 1280 shader units and was around 30% faster than the previous generation’s top model, the GeForce GTX 980M.
Most games should run well in FHD, even with ultra-detailed settings and image enhancements like anti-aliasing enabled. Even at higher pixel density, this is true (WQHD). However, 4K gaming necessitates at least a GTX 1070. (Max-Q).
The Core i7-7700HQ and the HP Omen 17 outperformed both Acer laptops in the PCMark 8 benchmark, with the Aspire 7 coming in dead last. The Acer Aspire 7 A717-72g came with a regular hard drive. Still, its competitors offered SATA III SSDs and blazingly fast PCIe NVMe SSDs.
The lack of solid-state storage could have improved the system’s performance. The system was usually slow, and installing, and running programmes took longer than normal. As a result, people accustomed to dealing with solid-state drives (SSDs) will be disappointed. Because of the low storage performance, games were slower to launch than usual, but the overall experience remained unaffected.
Unfortunately, the Aspire 7’s battery life could have produced better results. While most 17-inch notebooks with equivalent hardware have batteries that start at around 65 Wh, battery life for extended gaming sessions will be around an hour. The battery life on the Aspire 7 is adequate for a 17-inch notebook, lasting more than 5 hours for web browsing.
The Aspire 7 contains a single USB 3.1 Gen. Type-C port, HDMI, USB 3.0 Type-A, SD card reader, RJ45 (Ethernet), and 3.5mm audio in/out, 2x USB 2.0, and a charging point on the right side.
The pressure-sensitive keyboard is slightly narrower and nearly as wide as a standard desktop keyboard. However, the number pad is smaller than on standard keyboards, which may be uncomfortable for persons with large hands. The average size and spacing of the moderately concave and slightly roughened keys should be fine for touch typists.
The layout is substantially identical to that of a standard keyboard, as is common for Acer laptops. CTRL and ALT are the same sizes as the other keys, if not somewhat smaller, due to the arrow keys on the bottom row.
The sensation from the keyboard felt overly soft and spongy. Only the larger keys, such as the space bar or return key, clatter audibly, while the rest are silent. The backlight is dim, cannot be changed, and can only be turned on or off.
The touchpad, encircled by a silver decorative strip, is adequate in size. Still, its placement, which is too far to the left, can interfere with a hand resting on the WASD keys. It had enough gliding properties even with somewhat moist fingers. Still, it was immune to inputs or motions along its edges. The quick motion was consistently identified, and the accuracy and response times were outstanding. The double-tap dragging and dropping approach was always dependable.
Because it wasn’t flush with the case, the touchpad rattled. On the other hand, the two buttons were above average. They operated brilliantly due to their tight but well-balanced resistance and crystal-clear auditory and tactile feedback.
It was clear that Acer did not try to reduce the notebook’s footprint. The Aspire 7 A717-71G-72VY is mostly black, with massive proportions and heavy bezels surrounding the screen. The top cover and the lid have a cold metal feel, and the brushed metal texture makes them simple to mark.
The photographs below show our difficulty in eradicating fingerprints from the surface. The rest of the case is made of non-slip material. The silver Acer logo on the lid, ornamental strips around the base and touchpad, and silver Aspire-series hinge are all great accents.
The base, unyielding, bent slightly under intense pressure while remaining completely silent. The lid is tough and pressure-resistant, making it rigid and unresponsive to torsion forces. The hinge is really tight. It provides adequate support when opened to raise the entire pedestal. There is little teetering, which is a good thing.
Despite the animal’s apparent immobility, Acer’s engineers must nevertheless plan forward. The construction is acceptable overall; the gaps are generally small, and the projecting edges near the hinge look like deliberate design choices rather than manufacturing defects. The case is sturdy and substantial. However, it might be more visually appealing with bright accents.
