Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5735-6694
The Acer Aspire 5735 is disappointingly plain compared to other more sparkly laptops: its black glossy case is nondescript and makes it look like any other computer. This, plus the bulk and weight, make for an unimpressive first impression. One distinguishing feature is that it has one of the new breed of laptops screens in the same aspect ratio as widescreen televisions. Older screens are in the 4:3 aspect ratio, while widescreen televisions have a 16:9 ratio. Computer screens tend to be 16:10, leading to distortion or black bars when used to view a film. If you’re after a low-priced notebook, the Acer 5735 provides more power than a mini-notebook and is not much more expensive

Acer's Aspire AS5375-6694 offers a good level of performance in a relatively affordable laptop. It offers a solid level of performance thanks to the Core 2 Duo processor with a full 4GB of memory and a decent amount of hard drive space. It isn't without a few flaws that hamper it from its full potential. For many people, the flaws won't really bother them too much as they won't necessarily be noticed. Overall a good laptop for those on a fixed budget.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
T6400: Entry level dual core processor based on the Penryn core with only 2 MB level 2 cache and a low clock speed.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
