Acer Aspire 5742 (6814) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
17 January 2011
  • Summary: For $549, the Acer Aspire 5742-6814 is a pretty good value. You get a somewhat plain but fairly portable 15-inch design, a spacious keyboard, and strong dual-core performance, all for just a little bit more than the cost of an iPad. Still, we wish the audio and battery life were better. For just $20 more, you can get a similarly configured HP G62t with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5740 graphics.
  • Pros: Good performance for the price, Comfortable keyboard, More portable than competing 15-inchers
  • Cons: Short battery life, Lackluster graphics, Poor audio
