Excerpt: I recently purchased this laptop as i needed to update my office computer. I paid just under $400 for it. So at least it was inexpensive, however it is cheaply made compared to other manufactures, and felt flimsy, i immeadiatley noticed a loose keyboards, a sticky mouse. loading up skype to work with the built in camera took twice as long as on my Dell. The software runs slow partly the result of having only 320 Megabytes of memory though running on 4 gigs of Ram.
Excerpt: This is my third laptop over a two and a half year period, and it's the second best. It beats the HP, which at the same price tag offered a smaller HDD, only half the memory, and a dysfunctional keyboard. Not to mention my HP's hard drive crashed after only 3 days. It loses to the Dell I had before the HP though.
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.
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.
Summary: Has been quite a good computer, with lots of interfaces (wifi, bluetooth, usb, multi-card reader, webcam). They have all worked fine, but just today.. I realised that it doesnt have Firewire port. Very disappointed. I dont see much option for adding this either.
Summary: The Acer Aspire 5740's big screen makes it a good portable movie player, but without a dedicated graphics processor. This laptop's case design manages to include a full keyboard - including a number pad - and a 1366-by-768-pixel, LED 15.6-inch screen. It earned an overall score of 101 in our WorldBench 6 test suite, putting it on an even footing with many costlier systems.

Excerpt: ...questo piccolo oggetto di casa Acer sa ancora stupire. Sono un suo fortunato possessore e devo dire che ha superato le mie aspettative. Vi dico subito che il processore è un intel i5 430M, quindi vecchio di qualche anno e la sua scheda video è una ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 con 1 GB di memoria integrata. Per quanto il processore sia abbastanza vecchio e la scheda sia di fascia media e non decisamente tra le più nuove (stanno per uscire la serie 8000) ...
Pros: 8Gb di Ram, Schermo LED, Buone prestazioni generali .
Conclusion: Через 3 недели после покупки, появился "шум" экрана на светлых тонах. В сервисном центре заменили шлейф экрана. "Шум" остался. Более того, появился еще и на темных тона. Выскакивает периодически черный экран. Очень устают глаза от "шума".
