Review Acer TravelMate 5744Z-P624G50Mikk Notebook

 

Saved in the wrong places? The main thing is cheap – if you don't have any special requirements on a basic Office notebook, you'll find a wide range of offers for around EUR 400. Whether the TravelMate 5744Z from Acer should be put on the shortlist is...

Acer TravelMate 5744-382G32Mn

 

Good machine, well equiped for the price and excellent performance. Lightweight, Good keyboard with numberpad. Screen is clear and sharp.

Only 2GB ram, and 256mb used by Graphics card. (Note not a major bad point as system performs very well and for the money it's excellent value)

Acer TravelMate TM5744-484G50Mnkk

 

Can't really think of any although the various Acers I have bought over the years seem reasonably reliable.

Spec not as good as the older, similarly priced 5742, no HDMI, less RAM. Battery life not great. Absolutely littered with unwanted demo software - took an age to remove.
