Acer Aspire 5735Z Review


The Acer Aspire 5735Z is a low-priced mainstream notebook with a 15.6”, 16:9 aspect ratio display. It retails for less than $500 and has reasonable build quality, a full keyboard with number pad, and decent battery life

Good build quality ; Beautiful screen ; Comfortable keyboard ; Decent performance ; Two hours and fifty minutes of battery life ; Excellent wireless ; Runs cool and quiet

Could use a few more input/output ports ; Loud touchpad buttons ; Lots of pre-loaded junk software

Acer includes many pre-installed utilities, including Acer GridVista and Acer Empowering Technology. NTI Backup Now! Software is included and allows you to make a backup of your entire hard drive. A lot of "bloatware," or junk software, is also...

Somewhat frustrating


Better than most core 2 duos, runs games a very high levels, problem free so far.

Good price, easy to work. Many options for photo, vids, etc

Did not come with Microsoft Office. Asks for an activation key. Had to go for the trial key. Now my understanding is that I am going to have to pay separately for Office. I use this often. I understand why the great price, now

i was very pleased with this laptop lots of bang for your buck if on a budget, if not on a budget would recommend something a little better made, and if your into gaming this is not for you

works well, good for the money

the plastic, on the lap is generic, it has no dedicated video

Awesome Laptop


i bought it when it was $650 but this is still a great laptop.

Great display, love the full keyboard, easy access to USB ports, Light Weight, Amazing battery life, decent web cam, great DVD drive, wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n capability gives the user a wide variety of connectivity options along with the 10/100/1000...

Bluetooth button but no blutooth, but i knew that when i bought it. the glossy lid is a fingerprint magnet, so if you dont mind fingerprints or cleaning the lid every three days. The Acer D2D Recovery feature doesn't work but thats common for ACER

great notebook with XP


cheapest laptop with xp that i could find.

Very light, fast, nice wide screen, resolution ok, keyboard has a nice touch. Love the keypad

The video memory is set for 64 and is not able to be changed in the bios, as confirmed with Acer customer service. Vista Home Premium requires 128. The graphics chipset allows for up to one Gig depending on application, however, the screen saver...

Acer Aspire AS5735-6694 Intel Core 2 Duo T6400(2.00GHz) 15.6" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 250GB HDD DVD Super Multi Intel GMA 4500MHD NoteBook - Retail


I would suggest this lap top to anyone looking for a cheep multi use solution. From what I've seen so far, this system should last a few years doing basic video and picture editing and internet. Not for high end gaming. Good computer with many extras...

Fast, steady (so far) and has a bright clear screen. Easy to use key board and number pad. The keys are off set just a bit from the touch pad and it took a few tries to get comfortable with touch typing on it. I like the scroll option on the right side...

Touchy touch pad. I had to shut down the extras (zoom and pan) just to get the pointer where I wanted to go

Other than the poor resolution, I can't complain about the machine. I do think I'm going to sell it, though, and buy something else.

Powerful. Fast. Light-weight. Bright

Resolution. It's just not very good

Great Buy!


Love it! Replaced an old Toshiba laptop, but liked the Acer 5735 screen and ease of use so much that I transferred all my business info from my desktop to it as well. Works easily with my Oki color laser printer. Microsoft Office is a breeze and...

Beautiful picture/color - 16:9 format ; fast movement between programs and multiple screens ; very easy wifi use and dialup connection is fast ; separate number pad (great for expense sheets) ; lightweight for screen size ; good built-in security...

Outside surface is shiny gray plastic composite - attracts fingerprints and other marks, seems to be more flexible than would like, but no problems yet ; many trial programs, takes time to delete ; no instruction manual (but Acer's startup program is...

Great laptop


Overall, if you need a notebook for work or school, this has all the speed, bells and whistles you will need.

After using this for school for about a year, i can say its a fantastic computer

The graphics are a bit underpowered, if you want to play any games you really need to get the Acer with the integrated GeForce 8400M or 9600M
