In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Acer Aspire 3 (A317-33) in-depth review

Today, we have a notebook that falls in a very appetizing spot in the market. It is incredibly low-budget, but it may actually surprise you. As you know, this segment of the market is full of cheap laptops that have poor built quality, terrible TN displays, and hardware that can't offer much more than Web browsing, and media consumption. Thankfully, Acer paired the Aspire 3 (A317-33) with Intel CPUs, part of the Jasper Lake family. Currently, the top-tier device we could find (and the one we got) has the Pentium Silver N6000, which consumes only 6W of power, but is built on a 10nm architec[...]

Pros

  • Adequate pricing
  • 1x M.2 NVMe + 2x RAM SODIMM
  • Budget processor with a decent amount of performance
  • Doesn't use PWM for brightness adjustment (LG LP173WF5-SPZ1)

Cons

  • Battery life is only average
  • No MicroSD card slot and USB Type-C port
  • Covers only 52% of the sRGB gamut (LG LP173WF5-SPZ1)
