A feature-rich multimedia laptop packing a Blu-ray ROM drive, Intel Core i5 CPU and a 640GB hard drive.

Aside from the merely average display, the Acer Aspire 5942G offers the performance and features of a laptop that could cost a lot more. If you're after a high-performance Blu-ray laptop and aren't too concerned about having a top-notch screen to go...

Laptop or Desktop : Acer Aspire 5942G

Acer Aspire 5942G-464G64Bn

Finger print scanning technology is a bit gimmicky, needs work but very good concept
