Acer Indonesia recently brought its newest gaming laptop to Indonesia, namely the Acer Aspire 7 Gaming laptop. However, what is different this time is that this gaming laptop comes in the Aspire line, not the Predator or Nitro Series.
Usually, the Aspire Series laptop is included in the Acer Consumer line, aimed at workers and business people for simply typing documents, browsing the internet and other activities. This time the Aspire 7 Gaming laptop has improved specifications and features compared to the regular Aspire 7. This laptop also targets a wider range of people, such as content creators and gamers.
These specification improvements include Intel® Core™ i5-12450H Processor and support for NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards, Full HD screens, and the fastest connectivity. So, are those the only mainstay features and specifications of the Aspire 7 Gaming? To test the mainstay specifications and features of the Aspire 7 Gaming laptop, here is the complete review.
Compact Design, Unlike Gaming Laptops in General
In terms of design, nothing has changed about the Aspire 7 Gaming, compared to its sibling. The feel of the Aspire Series which looks compact and light is also attached to this gaming laptop. The black color used on the Aspire 7 Series still covers the entire body of this gaming laptop.
Usually, Acer gaming laptops in the Predator and Nitro lines are quite heavy and look wider. The Aspire 7 Gaming has dimensions of 363 x 254 x 22.86 mm and weighs 2.15kg which is quite easy to carry when traveling to the office or cafe.
On the front of the laptop, there is a 15.6 inch IPS screen and a webcam. This webcam has a resolution of 1280 x 720p and can record video up to 720p HD quality and is supported by Super high dynamic range imaging (SHDR) technology.
Apart from that, this webcam is also supported by Acer PurifiedVoice™ which can help reduce noise relying on AI technology. That way, the voice will sound clearer and clearer during online meetings.
Right below the webcam and screen, there is a keyboard and touchpad which are very soft and responsive when used for playing games, typing documents and other activities. Moreover, this laptop has Windows 11 Home 64 bit and Office Home Student 2021 installed with every purchase of this gaming laptop.
Turning to the right, left and back of the laptop, there are several ports. Starting from an HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB Type-C port, a Thunderbolt 4 port, 2 USB 3.2 ports and a USB 2.0 port which also functions as a charging port. The Thunderbolt 4 port makes data transfers 8x faster than USB 3.0 ports and can be connected to external devices such as external GPUs, or even two different high-resolution monitor screens.
Meanwhile, the USB Type-A port is able to support the use of peripherals such as mice, keyboards, flash drives and various other devices. The existence of an HDMI port also makes it easier to connect devices with additional monitors for a more spacious and flexible work space.
High Resolution Screen, Still Fun for Gaming
With a 15.6 inch IPS screen with Full HD resolution, it offers high visual quality that can be enjoyed from all angles. A screen frame or bezel that is up to 81.67% thin not only gives the Aspire 7 Gaming laptop a compact form, but also a much wider viewing experience.
Good screen contrast and color brightness are even better thanks to support from Acer ExaColor for real-time tuning of color temperature, saturation and gamma. So when playing games, editing videos and photos, designing 3D animations, as well as enjoying entertainment content and other routines, this laptop screen is quite pleasing to the eye.
Staring at the screen for a long time to complete various routines, your eyes don’t feel tired thanks to the presence of exclusive Acer BlueLightShield™ technology. Acer BlueLightShield can reduce exposure to blue light so that it can maintain the health of the user’s eyes, even over long periods of use.
Maximum Performance Available for Gaming and Multimedia Activities
To support gaming and multimedia, this Aspire 7 gaming laptop is powered by an Intel® Core™ i5-12450H Processor with 8 cores and 12 threads. This processor can run various software, including AAA games, up to 25% faster than previous generation laptops.
This processor is also supported by an NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1650 GPU which provides the best ray tracing visuals when playing AAA games such as Monster Hunter Rise and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection as well as editing videos using Adobe Premiere Pro. The games Monster Hunter Rise and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection can be played smoothly by this laptop and the display is smoother.
Likewise, editing videos using Adobe Premiere Pro is very smooth, especially during the rendering process. Next, we also created 3D animation using Autodesk Maya 2022 software, the results were almost perfect.
This cannot be separated from the role of 8GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB NVME SSD up to 1TB. The RAM and ROM can also be upgraded easily. In particular, RAM can be upgraded with dual SODIMM DDR4 slots.
Not only offline games, playing online games also has a very fast internet connection which has experienced a significant increase in connection latency, so Wi-Fi responsiveness is better and instantaneous. To protect data, the Aspire 7 Gaming laptop also supports the login option via biometrics with a built-in fingerprint reader.
In terms of design, this gaming laptop feels like Acer’s line of Consumer laptops which are compact and easy to carry to the office or cafe. Comes with a combination of Intel® Core™ i5-12450H Processor, and NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, AAA games such as Monster Hunter Rise and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection as well as Adobe Premiere Pro video editing software run smoothly on this laptop with a smoother appearance.
Visuals also feel sharper thanks to the support of a 15.6 inch IPS screen with Full HD resolution on this laptop. When we played online games, streamed videos, downloaded files felt fast thanks to Wi-Fi 6E support.
