Acer Laptop Trades Performance for Ultralow Price

 

How do you get a full-featured notebook to clock in under six hundred bucks? Toss an AMD processor in it.

Barely more expensive than a netbook. Full selection of ports (4 USB, HDMI SD card) and features (dual-layer DVD writer, 802.11n wireless). Fancy keyboard-mounted DVD eject button

Lacks any compelling new features. Stripped-down performance, battery life and screen brightness

Review: Acer Aspire 5538G notebook, an affordable mobile HD entertainment solution

Acer Aspire 5538G with AMD Vision

 

Machine: Acer Aspire 5538G (specs)Price: About £400 - it variesThe last time we were in Austin TX, the guys and gals at AMD were pushing the Vision idea. AMD is still pushing Vision and no doubt bugging Intel at the same time.

AMD/ATI display is lovely, 1.9Ghz chip has more than enough beef

Portability

AMD clearly wants to tread on the tiger's tail. If this machine is anything to go by, Intel clearly has a fight on its hands. This PC is no netbook and the price ain't half bad.
