Review Acer Aspire 7738g Notebook


Four Cores for Everyone. The Acer 7738G might have been put under

Stable Case; Good battery life for 17 inches; Good performance in multi-core applications; Good sound system

Low performance for single-core applications; Loud cooling system; No eSATA, no Firewire; Contrast poor TFT

If you want a quad, you should take a look at the new Core i7 laptops and then look for a suitable 17 incher. MSI's GT640; mySN's XMG7.c; Asus' G60J; Deviltech's Devil 9700 DTX (W860CU); Acer's Aspire 8940G; Dell's Studio 1557; MSI GT740.

Acer Aspire 7738G-664G32MN


Has loads off features, plays near enough any game you through at it and has a decent battery life for a 17inch laptop :)

Did have a problem with the speakers at first but that turned out to be a driver issue with this chipset and windows 7
