"The biggest disadvantage to 3D in the case of Acer's 5745DG is that its GT 425 graphics card simply can't cope with running intensive games in stereoscopic mode"


That was the first thing I thought when I seen this. Why even bother putting 3D on it? As 3D is so demanding I wouldn't want to be doing it on anything less than a high-end desktop card let along a cut done laptop version. As you said there isn't even a blue-ray drive to take advantage of 3D films so I would rather take that added expense and either pocket it or beef up the specs. Bizzare.





I find the Crysis on medium a "compromise to far" is a big elitist :). At medium that game holds it's own against any console game today. I know it's an old title but it was built to last and boy is it still a stunning game maxed out but it still looks great on medium. Playing that on 15inch screen is little "compromise"

Oh forgot to add you can switch between 3D and 2D while gaming. Can't remember what the short-cut but it's something like ALT+T. Tells you in the control panel.

are you not adding spec lists anymore?


do they do a version with NO 3D but a higher res d or same resolution display?





@Runadumb

Why even bother putting 3D on it? I guess because they think enough of us are stupid enough to fall for the gimmick. And sadly, the power of marketing is such that there will always be plenty of people willing to ignore all logic and believe a chocolate teapot is the way forward ;)

@Runadumb:


Have you seen the lack of water detail on Medium?! :O


(okay, so I'm elitist ;)





@Denis iii:


All the specs are in the review.


As to a no 3D version, not AFAIK - at least not with otherwise identical specs.





@MrGodfrey:


To be fair, undemanding titles in 3D can still be genuinely fun, and if you add an external Blu-ray drive it does a decent job of 3D movies, so chocolate teapot might be a bit harsh. Also don't forget the screen's 120Hz advantage for regular (i.e. non-3D) gaming.
