Review Acer Aspire 5742G Notebook (GT 540M)

Notebookcheck
24 January 2011
  • Summary: Geforce bargain. Acer puts interesting hardware in a low priced bundle that is available for starting at 699 euros. The newest GeForce GT 540M is still extremely uncommon and we also don't find eight gigabyte of RAM very often. Performance for money in excess?
  • Pros: Good 3D performance GT 540M, Good application performance, Nvidia Optimus with low power consumption, Low system noise, Low waste heat, Number pad & arrow keys, Acceptable battery life, An Nvidia GPU for inexpensive notebooks that can keep up with Radeon. The matt surfaces prevent greasy spots.
  • Cons: Contrast weak TFT, TFT not suitable for outdoors, Few interfaces, Adverse positioning of interfaces, Pliable keyboard, Creaking chassis, Even a multimedia notebook has the right of a typing-eager keyboard.

Laptop Review: Acer Aspire 5742G

HardwareCentral
9 December 2010
  • Conclusion: For optical storage, the unit has an 8x DVD drive that supports reading and writing to all platter formats, including double-layer discs. The memory-card reader in the unit is less versatile, though. It can only read MMC and SD cards. Battery life is adequate, but not exceptional. The Acer's six-cell, 4400mAh lithium-ion pack repeatedly lasted just over three hours in our real-world tests. Our review unit came with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.

Acer Aspire 5742G review

expertreviews.co.uk
20 December 2010
  • Excerpt: The Aspire 5742G is typical of the latest breed of Acer laptops, with its slimline design, powerful processor and relatively low price. We're amazed sometimes how much Acer crams into its laptops; not only do you get the latest Core i3-370M processor, but there's also a dedicated graphics processor that can play games, and a generous 500GB hard disk.

Notebookcheck.nl
6 July 2012
  • Summary: Acer neemt een goedkope behuizing en vult deze met op dit moment populaire hardware. De Aspire 5742G-458G64Mnkk werkt met een Core i5-450M en 8 GB RAM geheugen (2x 4GB). Nvidia's GeForce GT 540M is daaraan toegevoegd. Deze zorgt voor een hoge 3DMark2006 score (7458) en is vergelijkbaar met AMD's HD 5650 en HD 6550M. Daarnaast is Optimus technologie aan boord. Deze maakt automatisch switchen tussen de Intel HD en dedicated GT 540M mogelijk.
