Review of Acer Aspire AS5738PG-6306 Touch Screen Notebook

Testfreaks blog
25 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire 5738PG is now my favorite notebook, it’s powerful and it’s just a lot of fun to use. The touch screen truly adds a lot of value to it, making it fun and easy to use even for the novice user. If my 4 yr old can get the hang of it in a few minutes then anyone out there can I’m sure.
  • Pros: Very well made, Very good performance, Excellent sound, Decent price, The touch screen just makes things easier and fun
  • Cons: Short battery life, Lid lock can be difficult, Junk included, lots that load on startup, Bluetooth button with no Bluetooth!

Review Acer Aspire 5738DG 3D Notebook

17 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Acer's approach to the 3D notebook made a good impression on us. It was able to render DVDs and photographs with an attractive new perception of depth . The better the quality of the starting material, the easier it was for the TriDef software to create a stereoscopic image from it.
  • Pros: 3D effect for films, Robust casing, Cool surfaces, Good touchpad and solid keyboard, A 3D effect that is as good as promised - as long as you're not a gamer.
  • Cons: Poor graphical performance, 3D effect strongly dependent on viewing angle, No eSATA or Firewire, Poor sound quality

Review: Acer Aspire 5738DG 3-D Notebook

1 December 2009
  • Excerpt: You know what? Go ahead and forget the whole “3-D” part of this notebook. Yes, it comes with polarizing lenses (and a clip-on attachment for you bespectacled Poindexters out there), and yes, it can display 3-D content.
  • Pros: Super-cheap, with overall impressive specs for its price level. Outstanding performance, even as a gaming rig.
  • Cons: 3-D technology, as implemented here, is years away from prime time. Bafflingly stupid design choices. Dim screen backlighting. Heavy.

Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165

PC Magazine
27 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Acer's Aspire 5738DG-6165 is a very good budget desktop replacement to begin with; the fact that it offers 3D rendering is just icing on the cake.
  • Pros: TriDef's 3D screen delivered a worthwhile 3D experience. Speedy despite using a budget processor. Discrete graphics. Plenty of USB ports. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Adding 3D depth to videos is a work in progress. Plain design. Watch our Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 video review!

27 April 2010
  • Summary: A lot of 3D movies have appeared on the big screen over the last year. Though some argue it's merely a gimmick, 3D is also now appearing on small screens - in this case, the Acer 5738DG 3D laptop.

Acer Aspire 5738Z review

21 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Acer's smart-looking Aspire 5738Z is more attractive than many budget laptops, with a metallic blue lid, shiny black screen bezel and pitted gunmetal grey plastic around the keyboard. Although it's a standard 15.6in widescreen display, the laptop's design makes it look bigger.
