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. In games particularly, the 3D effect is excellent and could find some followers despite being strongly dependent on viewing angle.
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
Excerpt: This year is the year of 3D. It will be featured in every product, including laptops. This new laptop by Acer is no ordinary model, the simple addition of a letter “D” in the model name has added another dimension to the viewing. Ok I'm bored of that pun too, so let's get down to seeing what is really on offer here, in the Acer Aspire 5738 DG model, with 3D capabilities.
Review of Acer Aspire AS5738PG-6306 Touch Screen Notebook
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. Yes the battery life is shorter than expected, but if I take my laptop with me I always take the power cord so it’s not that much of an issue.
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!
Summary: The $799 Acer Aspire 5738PG is a well-rounded notebook that provides plenty of style and power, as well as touch capabilities at a wallet-friendly price. For $80 more you can purchase the Sony VAIO NW, which includes a Blu-ray drive and nearly half an hour more of additional battery life, but less graphics muscle. If you want to save some chips, the $599 Gateway NV performs well, but foregoes Blu-ray and gaming capabilities--not to mention a touchscreen.
Your laptop screen now has 3D: Acer's Aspire 5738DG laptop reviewed
4 July 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.
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. The Aspire's basic specification, with a 2.2GHz Intel Pentium T4400 processor and 4GB of RAM, isn't extraordinary but is certainly powerful enough for the low-level image editing, web browsing and...
