Acer Aspire 5942G review

 

With a 15.6in screen, Acer's Aspire 5942G should weigh around 2.6kg, but it's actually a hefty 3.1kg - what we'd expect a 17in laptop to weigh. We were impressed by its battery life, though: four hours and 49 minutes, which is particularly good for a...

The Aspire 5942G tries hard to be the perfect entertainment laptop, but it really needs a higher-resolution display to match its Blu-ray drive.

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

 

The dividing line between desktop systems and their laptop brethren is becoming increasingly blurred as manufacturers incorporate more power, functionality and features into their portable offerings.

Beneath the keyboard is the touchpad. This is a combination multi-gesture unit. You have two-finger scroll, pinch, rotate and flip for those who like to put their twitchy fingers to good use. The Single button bar features a centrally mounted...
