Inside is the Intel Core i7 (720QM) running at 1.6 GHz with a 1333 MHz system bus.  This is a quad-core processor with 8 processing threads.  It normally runs at 1.6GHz, but can turbo up to 2.8 GHz when needed using Intel’s TurboBoost techology.  It’s a 64-bit CPU with 6 MB of Intel SmartCache (L3). It was built using a 45 nm process. The laptop uses the Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset. You get 4 GB of 1066MHz DDR3 memory for your multitasking, with the ability to upgrade to 8GB.

The screen is a 17.3-inch CineCrystal LED-backlit widescreen display with 1600 x 900-pixel resolution. Specs include a 220-nit high brightness rating, 8ms response time, and 60 percent color gamut. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics card with 1 GB of DDR3 discrete graphics memory.  It can use up to 1661MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory if it needs too.

For storage there’s a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s a big drive with plenty of space for all your music, digital photos and more. The optical drive is a 8X DVD-Super Multi Double-Layer Drive.   The 5-in-1 media card reader supports Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), xD-Picture Card (xD).

The laptop measures 16.1″ x 11.3″ x 1.6″ and weighs 7.2 pounds so it’s a pretty hefty laptop.  The 6-cell 4400 mAh Lithium ion battery can provide up to 2.5 hours of unplugged power which makes this one pretty useless unless it’s plugged in.

You can find the Acer Aspire AS7745G-6572 laptop for around $900.
