Excerpt: Laptop Acer Gemstone BMW. This laptop was designed by BMW. Some important Features are: Good hard disk capability, RAM Memory of 2GB, Nvidia Geforce, DVD burner , web cam included with microphone, wireless card, slot card 5 in 1, video out, etc.
Summary: In term of price, this is excellent. And the machine performance is good too. The short coming is battery. I was in the middle creating C drive image (running on battery), it shut down after 40 mins.
Summary: Acer has created a wonderful laptop. The number key pad has returned to the keyboard! Windows 7 is like a egg hunt. Everyday you find some new function. And the computer was delivered in two days. It has the latest technology at an extremely affordable price.
Summary: i had an aspire 3000 for 5 years and the only thing that went wrong were the speakers. so when saw this good deal in walmart i did not hesitate to try another acer. so far performance is good. the blue part of the cover has some sharp edges but it doesnt bother me. i chose the regular delivery but i got it in 3 days..which is $14 if i chose the 3 day delivery. at $598 this is the least expensive i5 laptop..
Excerpt: Acer has launched a smart laptop system in the markets. Acer Aspire 5740-433G32Mn Laptop is a latest model with high definition display quality and flexible connectivity options. Running on Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium OS, this smart laptop is powered with Intel Core i5 430M 2.26GHz (1066 MHz FSB) processor.

Certainly not a slouch and has everything one may need on the go.
