Review Acer TravelMate 7740G Notebook

 

Experiment. Acer attempts an unusual symbiosis between office- an

Matte display; Tough surface; Outstanding touchpad; Good application and gaming performance; Low noise levels at idle

Meagre connection options; Inconvenient arrangement of connections; Spongy keyboard; Poorly contrasting display; Very limited viewing angles; High tempertures under load; Unsteady notebook lid; Modest battery life

17" multimedia notebooks like the Acer Aspire 7551G, the Toshiba Satellite L670, the Dell Vostro 3700 or the Dell Studio 1749.

Good keyboard; Low system noise; Good value for money; Many interfaces

Most interfaces on left side; Display illumination; Occasional lapses of Touchpad; Short battery life

Possibly the shortly reviewed and from a hardware perspective slightly weaker Toshiba Satellite L550-207, or the better equipped Dell Studio 1749.

Acer Aspire 7740 Review

 

The Acer Aspire 7740 is a 17.3-inch multimedia notebook designed for people who want a lot of features for not a lot of money. This notebook costs $749 while still offering an Intel Core i3-330M processor, Intel GMA HD graphics, Blu-ray drive, and a...

Good screen resolution ; Nice speakers ; Comes with Blu-ray drive

Doesn't come with Blu-ray software ; No touchpad sensitivity adjustment

The Acer Aspire 7740 is an affordable multimedia notebook with solid performance and a good appearance. While some budget notebooks might only offer resolutions of 1366 x 768, Acer went with a 1600 x 900 resolution for its 17.3-inch screen. System...

Acer Aspire AS7740-5691

 

Available from Staples, the Acer Aspire AS7740-5691 ($649.98 list) offers a spacious 17.3-inch HD display, a dual-core CPU, and a few nice entertainment features. However, as is the case with most budget notebooks, there are trade-offs. While the...

Very affordable. Bright 17.3-inch display. Good audio quality

So-so performance. Integrated graphics. Can't do 1080p. Bloatware

The Acer Aspire AS7740-5691 won't bowl you over with record breaking performance or stunning good looks, but it's incredibly low price may get your attention.

Acer Aspire 7740-334G50Mn review

 

Acer's 7740 has a 17.3in screen and a new Core i3 processor, and yet costs less than some 15in notebooks. It's an ideal laptop for those who work with large spreadsheets, as the wide display will let you see more data on-screen at one time, and the...

Despite the fast new Core i3 processor and large screen, the 7740 is let down by a poor keyboard and touchpad.

Acer Travelmate 7740G

 

Although the 7740G is a solid notebook in terms of features, it left us feeling a little perplexed as to what Acer was trying to achieve with its design.

Although we are a little unsure of whether Acer intended the 7740G to be a large travelling laptop or a stay-at-home portable we were impressed with its features and functionality. Overall the 7740G offers a solid mid to upper range package for the...

Acer Aspire 7740G notebook

 

The Acer 7740G is a very powerful 17 inch laptop with a solid CPU and a zippy GPU capable of handling DirectX 11, all at a very generous price point.

Very powerful computer for the money.

 

I bought this laptop to play games while I'm deployed to Afghanistan. It performs much better than my old gaming laptop, and can handle any game I throw at it. This is not a gaming laptop for serious gamers, but it gets the job done. I can run multiple...

Runs most games beautifully with only minor tweaking ; Great quad-core processor handles multiple tasks well ; Beautiful screen ; Not exceptionally heavy for a 17 ; Good battery life

No bluetooth ; Keyboard takes getting used to ; Needs 1333MHz memory for intense applications (it has 1033) ; Sound quality is marginal (as with any laptop)

Consumer review by:

Just what I was looking for.

 

Great product. It took me forever to pick out a laptop, but when Acer announced this laptop for CES in January, it looked right for me. With Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, and ATi discrete graphics all for $800, this machine is one of a kind. The design...

Intel Core i5, Decent 4GB RAM, and ATi discrete graphics all for $800

Touchpad buttons, (understandably) low battery life
