First look: Acer Aspire 5745DG Notebook


When it was founded in 1976, Acer’s goal was to ‘break the boundaries between people and technology’. 34 years later Acer most definitely appears to be achieving its aims, as its latest notebook, the Aspire 5745DG, certainly conforms to the PC manufacturing giant’s aspirations to smash the confines that differentiate human beings from the technological creations they produce.

The year 2010 has seen a phenomenal rise in 3D technology stemmed from an urge to blur distinctions between reality and a machine. Being marketed as an ‘advanced 3D entertainment centre’, the Aspire 5745DG, takes 3D technology to new frontiers, enabling users to witness a multitude of multimedia facets with greater depth and excitement.

By incorporating NVIDIA 3D Vision Technology, the Aspire 5745DG facilitates visuals that literally pop out of the screen, thus enabling games and movies to ensconce viewers into the action with a renewed vigour and depth, unachievable by mere 2D computers. Home-made videos, when played with Acer Arcade Deluxe, shuttles users back to the action so they are able to relive special occasions more vividly.

Aesthetically the Aspire 5745DG could not come much more aerodynamically elegant, causing users to astonishingly muse how something so sophisticated, powerful and ‘real’, could be containing within something so streamlined and small.

Our only fear now is that with technology this sophisticated and ‘authentic’, will we be able to regress back to the duller world of the two-dimensional?
