Have this, love it for its size and cost. Honestly, I think the weight is fine. Resolution is workable for average use. Only thing to complain is the video card. Other than that, i love it. Runs like a champ.
You guys who are complaining about the resolution of 1080P and higher just don't know how to work it into windows.
My DPI is at 191 on a 1080P Dell XPS. I use no squint as a Firefox add-on and put it at 180% page zooming and 105% text zooming. I also right click on some program and tell windows to disable high DPI fyi.
The text is super clear compared to a 720P monitor b/c the MP is over 2 million total pixels which is about 2X the clarity of 720P resolution. A 1080P resolution has about 2 Million pixels while a 720P has 1 Million pixels. I understand there is a confusion about 4:3 1080P, for a little example, but I'm talking about the standard 16:9.
4.8lbs - what are they packing in this thing? They've sold this at Costco, and some of the complaints were a faulty wireless chip, and hard drive. For this price, weight, and refurb, I'd hope to get 1600x900. There's nothing special about this one with the HD4000 gpu and standard screen resolution.
nowhere near a true dGPU, but should play any game made til 2009-2010 pretty good on med to high.
pay this price if you want the 14" form factor for less than $600
For those inquiring about the graphics card I have this card with 1GB in an Acer 3820TG. I can play most games on max resolution for the internal display and on med - high settings without issue, this includes Borderlands 2, NBA 2K13, and Arkham Asylum. I am running the card over clocked to 700 / 1050 and a i5-540m, overclocked 133 fsb to 155, as well. I wouldnt let the graphics card hold you back. If I knew more about the fan setup on this I might even be tempted to buy it as a replacement for my aging Acer....
