Reviews for the Acer Aspire 4743Z-4861
Source: PC Mag
If your hands are tied by a tight budget, the Acer Aspire 4743Z-4861 is a smart buy, and a stronger performer than its Pentium-equipped competitors. But budget-priced laptops frequently sacrifice features and performance in the pursuit of a low price, and the 4743Z-4861 gives up plenty to reach its tantalizing low price of $469.99. If you can spend $170 more, you can pick up the speedier and better-outfitted HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl or the Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL5.
