Acer Aspire 5740G-6979

 

New laptops based on Intel's Core i5 CPUs are rolling in like a swarm of summer grasshoppers. The Acer Aspire 5740G-6979 all-purpose laptop falls squarely in the conservative middle of these units, stuffing a next-generation Core i5-430M processor and...

Discrete numeric keypad ; Good gaming performance

Poor audio quality ; Keyboard layout not optimal for touch typists

This $750 Acer laptop offers very good performance, but substandard audio and a lack of Bluetooth may limit its appeal.

Acer Aspire 5740-6378

 

Fulfils a checklist of the most important features ; Good all-around performance

Battery life is little more than three hours ; Trackpad and mouse buttons are poorly designed

Mid-range buyers will be satisfied, but mediocre audio and video performance never aspire beyond that crowd.

Acer Aspire AS5740-6378

 

The Acer Aspire AS5740-6378 pummels the competition in terms of speed, but falls behind in looks and battery life.

Core i5 processor is speedy. Great for bargain hunters. Numeric keypad included. Big screen. Excellent performance scores. 2-year warranty.

Small battery means mediocre battery life. Lackluster design.

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

Those users who absolutely have to have the ATI HD5650 should pick the Aspire 4820TG Timeline X, the Dell Studio 1749 or the Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S1E/BJ. To get the original "TravelMate" feeling, we would recommend the upcoming TravelMate TimelineX 8572G....

Review Acer Aspire 5740G Notebook

 

Jack-Of-All-Trades. In our review, the Aspire 5740G-434G32Mn prov

good price-performance ratio; battery run-time, if not under load; Multi Gesture Touchpad; good Keyboard; rich set of ports and interfaces

integrated loudspeaker; Distribution of ports and interfaces; average screen brightness

The Aspire 5740G has many competitors in the crowded laptop market: the Asus K52JR-SX059V for example. It comes with the same GPU, but the processor is an i3. Or there is the Fire DTX von DevilTech with the much more powerful HD5650.

Aspire 5740G is an excellent laptop. The new models have bluetooth and I’ve found Aspire outperforming the Dell studio in all aspects. Not to mention Dell is expensive(for no reason). This laptop's gemstone back is very attractive and unique. Dolby...

Acer Aspire 5740G-434G64Mn review

 

A good all-round laptop, but it comes with limited portability

Core i5 CPU ; Dedicated ATI graphics ; Storage ; Build quality

Screen ; Battery life

A solid laptop that makes good use of the latest components but portability suffers

Acer Aspire 5740G

 

Acer's mainstream home laptop offering has a nice keyboard, very good performance, and comes with a dedicated graphics card.

Very good performance ; Nice, full-keyboard with dedicated number pad ; Gesture-enabled touchpad ; Nice screen ; Very good feature set

Heavy ; Battery life

A very good mainstream laptop for home, the Acer Aspire 5740G offers very good performance, features, and a full-keyboard. It is solidly built, heavy, and has average battery life, though.

Acer Aspire 5740-333G32Mn review

 

The Acer Aspire 5740-333G32Mn comes in at the weightier end of the budget laptop spectrum.

The Acer Aspire 5740-333G32Mn delivers excellent overall performance and superior 3D graphics speed. Some useful extra control buttons and a DVD burner combine with a good sound system to make a laptop great for multimedia and entertainment use. It's...
