I am not sure but I don't think this budget end laptop supports SDHC flash. Check your manual for confirmation and please correct me if I am wrong.
Acer's Aspire 5630 has an identity crisis. Although marketed as a
multimedia machine, this $999.99 laptop offers some business-oriented
features. Yet it's only available as a budget, preconfigured model
through retail channels. Despite this confusion, the Aspire 5630 should
meet the computing needs of most users, but by trying to offer a little
bit of everything, this mainstream laptop excels at nothing.
6.2 pounds, the silver-and-black Aspire 5630 is a typical midsize
notebook-too large to carry on your daily commute, but spacious enough
to work on for long periods. While the notebook's keyboard and touch pad
are just passable in quality (if a bit stiff), its 15.4-inch
wide-screen LCD is a cut above your usual budget laptop's. With a
1,280x800 native resolution, the screen displays bright, sharp images,
and DVD playback was smooth in our tests. A few cool Acer software
utilities-such as GridVista, which divides the screen into two, three,
or four windows
, so you can easily work in multiple applications simultaneously-add to the panel's appeal.
As for multimedia features, you'll find application-shortcut keys and media-control buttons above and alongside the keyboard
Acer also includes a Windows Media Center-like multimedia suite called
Arcade Deluxe. But despite what the company's marketing materials
suggest, the Aspire 5630 isn't a multimedia workhorse. While higher-end
systems in the Aspire line accommodate a discrete nVidia GeForce Go 7300
video card, the PC features Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics, which
labor under the weight of all but the most basic gaming titles and
graphics tasks. And since the laptop is a preconfigured model with no
upgrade path, gamers and digital artists should certainly shop
Business users, on the other hand, may find a few
things to appreciate, most notably the proprietary Acer Empowering
Technology (AET) utility bar that sits on the notebook's desktop. With
its simple, intuitive interface, AET is a convenient center for a number
of tasks that business users will be glad to have at their fingertips,
including password protection, network management, and power
usage, as well as display parameters for giving presentations.
One quibble we have has to do with Acer's half-baked nod to 3G, an
emerging technology that allows business users to access the Internet
over a high-speed digital cellular network. A dedicated toggle switch on
the front of the notebook seemingly controls both Bluetooth and 3G
connectivity, but since the Aspire includes the components for neither
technology, the switch is redundant. Do you have a light switch
in your house that doesn't seem to control anything? Annoying, right?
Now imagine a cool-looking switch on the front of your notebook that
doesn't do anything, either. Plus, since the Aspire 5630 is a
fixed-configuration notebook, you don't have the option to add 3G or
Bluetooth later. The notebook does include 802.11a/b/g wireless
connectivity, and you also get a standard selection of ports and
connections, but FireWire is noticeably absent.
