Acer Aspire 5942G-524G64Bn review


A feature-packed media centre and one of the most powerful laptops around

Great performance ; DX11 support ; Blu-ray drive ; Connectivity

Screen not very bright

Apart from the screen being a bit dim, the rest of the machine is excellent and packed with features for home entertainment

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.

Acer Aspire 5942G (5942G-334G32Bn) review


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.

The 5942G is clearly aimed at those after an entertainment laptop, and the high price is to some extent justified by the Blu-ray drive and large hard disk. However, a 15.6in screen with a resolution of 1,366x768 isn't quite as good as we'd want at this...

Acer Aspire 5942G review

It’s chunky and covered in go-faster stickers to attract Dixons grazers, but at heart the Acer 5942G is a powerhouse of a laptop, and well suited to modern gaming and sundry entertainment purposes. Construction is heavy but solid, and there’s enough...

Acer Aspire 5942G-524G64Bn - 15.6in Laptop


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...

Acer Aspire 5942G-334G64BN


Boots up very quickly and runs smooth as a baby's bum

It hardly seems any time until I'm having to recharge the battery again

It is very safe and convenient device for security instead of password that is vulnerable to fraud and is hard to remember.
