Review Acer TravelMate 5740Z Notebook

 

Pentium Business. An office book for little money? This TravelMat

Resistant surfaces; Quiet and cool; Low power consumption; Useable keyboard; Matt display

Low application performance; Jerky fan; Short battery life; TFT too dark (outdoors); Few interfaces

MSI CR620: perfect port positioning; Asus X52JB: 350M alternative with HD 5146; Acer Aspire 5551G: with AMD triple core; Samsung P530 Pro: very quiet; Fujitsu Fujitsu LifeBook A530: matt display; Lenovo IdeaPad G560: extremely inexpensive Core i3.

Review Acer TravelMate 5740G-524G50MN Notebook

 

Business Gamer. Business laptops usually do not have strong graph ...

Good 3D performance ; Strong processor ; Matt display ; Quiet during normal use

No ExpressCard, eSATA, or DockingPort ; Weak contrast TFT ; Poor pressure points of the keyboard ; Short battery life ; Warm during heavy usage ; Poor loudspeaker output quality

How Acer used the "Travelmate-Image" software and sold badly designed consumer hardware under that lable

Acer Aspire 5740-332G25Mn review

 

A decent Core i3 laptop for under £500, with a bright screen and good battery life, but some corners have been cut. Spend a bit more cash and you can get a much better laptop.
