The deal: Acer Aspire AS5750 - affordable basic notebook with heaps of RAM - $498.00
For $498 the 15.6in Acer Aspire AS5750-2352G50MNKK is a competitively priced basic notebook, and Harvey Norman have sweetened the deal by adding an extra 4GB of RAM. This makes it one of the best-value 2nd Gen Intel Core i3 basic notebooks currently available. It’s got 6GB of RAM total along with a 500GB hard disk drive, ensuring you don't need to trade-off either storage or memory, which is rare at this end of the market. All up, this is a great deal for anyone interested in a basic notebook.
The AS5750 features a 2nd Gen Intel Core i3-2350M (2.2GHz), a fast entry-level processor which can smoothly run productivity applications and some intensive software.
It comes with an integrated graphics solution called Intel HD Graphics 3000. It’s on par with a low-end dedicated graphics card, and is sufficient for modern games at the lowest settings.
6GB of RAM is enough to simultaneously run many programs smoothly. It’s more than enough to ensure fluid overall system performance with Windows 7 Home Premium.
A 500GB hard disk drive is about average in size. It’s big enough for plenty of documents, but movies and the like will fill it sooner rather than later.
The AS5750 sports a 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) gloss screen. The gloss screen should have better colour richness when compared to a matte screen, but the reflectiveness will make it a bit difficult to use in direct sunlight.
The AS5750 has average portability, because it weighs 2.6kg and is 33.2mm thick. It'll be straightforward to carry around.
