AS5745DG 3D

This is a great Laptop! I got it a few days ago and am very impressed with what I got for the price. I have little bad to say about it. Breaking it down:

1) i5 processor & 4 gigs of RAM is very fast. No slowdown for multitasking
2) Dedicated vid card is fantastic. Not top of the line, but damn good and best in price range.
3) Hard drive is plenty for most storage and tasks. Not the fastest, but has rapid access when plugged in
4) Sleek and small design; it's not showy, but it's not clunky or ugly either
5) Better sound than most acers
6) Full and usable keyboard
7) Real 720p resolution

1) 3d content isn't as common as one would hope and that is the main draw for this laptop
2) No blu-ray (more and more content is digital these days and I don't miss it)
3) No USB 3.0 (again, not necessary, but would be nice)
4) Huge power usage for a laptop requires slightly bulky battery and only a few hours per charge

To summarize, the deal is amazing. This laptop is less expensive than anything similar on the market and doesn't make any large trade-offs for it. I play some graphics heavy games and can keep the settings on high or even ultra for some of them. I can also render some in 3d, which makes the experience completely new. I also work online and have no problems anywhere with speed or versatility.

I wish there was more 3d content around to take advantage of this spiffy feature. More is on the way, however. Nvidia is working with MS and Adobe as well as many games. Whether the market wants it or not, 3d will be all over the place soon. I'm glad I have something to view it with.
