The deal: Acer AS5742G - Core i3 allrounder notebook - $847.00
For $847 the Acer AS5742G-354G50MN allrounder notebook is well priced, and if you remember your cashback it’s even better value at $748. It has an Intel Core i3-350M (2.26GHz) processor, which is fast enough to watch HD movies and browse content heavy websites. There’s also respectable gaming performance from the NVIDIA GeForce GT 320M graphics card, as it’s enough to run newer games like Colin McRae: DIRT 2 on low settings.
The 4GB of RAM is standard these days and will run Windows 7 Home Premium and several applications comfortably, while the 500GB hard drive ensures you’ve got room for lots of programs, photos, videos and data. Topping all this off is a 15.6in (1366x768 resolution) screen that’s large enough for you to enjoy HD movies.
The notebook weighs 2.6kg, which is typical for the size. The dimensions are a bit smaller than average, 381mm wide, 253mm deep and 34mm thick, which is desirable. You’re getting a lot of computing power here for not a lot of money, so the Acer is worth considering.
