Acer Aspire 5043 WLMI Series Laptop


Acer is a Taiwan-based company who, in 2004, had grown to be one of the top five PC manufacturers in the world. Second only to Asus, it has the second largest computer retail chain, Acerworld, in Taiwan. Acer produces a large number of mobile PCs...

Acer Aspire AS5040-3810 NoteBook AMD Turion 64 ML-37(2.00GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 512MB Memory DDR333 80GB HDD 5400rpm DVD±R/RW ATI Radeon Xpress 200M IGP


If you're the kind of user that frequently plugs in your laptop, then this is the laptop for you. EXCELLENT price/performance ratio. Clock for clock, the Turion ML-37 is the equivalent of the 2 Ghz Pentium M but it costs less and has 64-bit capability.

Very fast. Didn't purchase for gaming power but it holds its own in FarCry and HL2. Nice screen. Very pretty laptop. The Turion ML-37's 1mb of L2 cache is ENTIRELY sufficient for anything you do. I am a professional audio engineer and I edit multitrack...

Battery life. If you're doing anything more than browsing the internet, do not expect to get more than 1 1/2 hours from the battery. I'm accustomed to the Pentium M's low power comsumption
