I’ve just abandoned my old Toshiba laptop and buy the the Acer Aspire 5742. Actually, when my friend introduce me this laptop, I have misgivings because I have never used Acer laptop before. As my friend told me that its performance is really very good and the price is quite reasonable, I decideed to buy it after a serious consideration. It turns out to be a right choice.
The Acer Aspire 5742 has the 2.5GHz Intel Core i3-370M processor, which runs applications at a sound speed.While the Acer Aspire 5742's 48Wh battery has a sound capacity, staying up and running for an impressive five hours (307 minutes).
Of course, with a comparatively cheap price you won’t be getting premium features such as a discrete graphics chip. Like many other budget laptops the Acer Aspire 5742 relies on the Core i3’s built-in graphics processing. This is more than adequate for the majority of non-gaming tasks.
In construction, the Acer Aspire 5742 is smart if a little unimpressive. Its textured lid and svelte proportions make the most of the lower-cost materials used.
Acer’s usual ‘lilypad’ keyboard has no dedicated special function keys, but is easy to type on and is accompanied by a smooth recessed muti-gesture trackpad with a single button which tilts to provide left and right clicks.
Three USB ports are provided on the Acer Aspire 5742-374G32Mnkk, two of which are right at the front for easy access, along with an SD/SDHC memory card reader.
It has been two months since I bought this Acer laptop. It works perfectly without any problem till now. I really like it.
