The deal: Acer AS5750 - cheap and powerful 2nd Gen Intel Core i5 equipped basic notebook - $593.30
For only $593.30 ($514.30 after a cashback) the 15.6in Acer AS5750-2434G64MNKK is a powerful basic notebook that’s a great bargain even without the cashback. In addition to having one of the newer 2nd Gen Intel Core i5s it has a spacious 640GB hard disk drive, a combination that is very unusual for this low price.
Powering the AS5750 is the Intel Core i5-2430M (2.4GHz), a fast mid-range processor that can speed up to 3GHz if it detects a program needs more processing power. The onboard Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics are about on par with a low-end dedicated graphics card, so it’s possible to play newer games on low settings.
There’s also 4GB of RAM, which ensures good overall performance with multi-tasking and Windows 7 Home Premium. The 15.6in (1,366x768 resolution) screen is to be expected given the price, and while the AS5750 is a bit heavier than most basic notebooks at 2.6kg it’s actually very slender at 33.2mm thick.
