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.

In accordance with ASUS philosophy of presenting new devices in short periods of time, not long after the first Fonepad, new models, Fonepad Note 6 and Fonepad 7, have been announced. Unfortunately, f... Mechanical keyboard are conceptual way of going...

Acer Aspire 7738G-904G100Mn

 

Fast laptop, big screen, clear screen definition, very good keybord for a laptop

The 2 USB ports that the laptop has in the bottom right are a bit uncomfortable. I use the laptop in the living-room in a small laptop table that has next to it a flat surface for the mouse, and it is imposible to use those 2 USBs.
