The third dimension. Acer's 3D notebook is aimed at lovers of film and multimedia. With the help of 3D glasses, every film, photo and game can be experienced in a new dimension. And it should not be written off as an expensive gadget for technology geeks; the Aspire 5738DG only costs 150 euros more than the same hardware without the 3D features.

A lot of 3D movies have appeared on the big screen over the last year. Though some argue it's merely a gimmick, 3D is also now appearing on small screens - in this case, the Acer 5738DG 3D laptop. Overall, the Acer Aspire 5738DG is an interesting machine. Right now, the 3D on it is more of a gimmick than anything else. As the tech gets better, I can see Acer leading from a product like this, but right now it's more of a gadget for early adopters.

Throughout my time spent on the Acer Aspire 5738DG, I think Acer's attempt to bring the 3D movie theater experience down to the confines of a laptop is encouraging. But there's sufficient room for improvement, no doubt. Having said that, this is still a good all-purpose laptop—with a cool 3D feature.

This attractive 3D notebook adds a new dimension to digital entertainment for an affordable price. Acer has beat other notebook makers to the punch with the first affordable 3D laptop. Not only is the Aspire 5738DG a well-rounded notebook that provides plenty of style and power, but it offers a next-generation feature for less than $800. Gamers may want to hold off until laptops arrive with Nvidia’s more robust (but more expensive) 3D Vision technology, but overall the 5738DG is a good first stab at 3D entertainment.

The Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165, geared toward the everyman, has just enough features to attract people who need a capable portable computer for daily use. And the price is within the realm of reason. As you may have gathered, though, the big selling point is the 3D panel. It's a gutsy attempt on Acer's part, for sure, and the company deserves some credit for that. But if Acer--or someone else--tries to step up with more graphics horsepower, 3D could be a cool gimmick that actually catches on.

The latest addition in Acer's Aspire series of laptops is the Acer Aspire 5738DG. Despite being a good multi-purpose laptop, in terms of hardware specs, its claim to fame is no doubt its 3D screen (and accompanying polaroid glasses) which makes it one of the first mainstream laptops to support 3D vision.

Acer reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570: Lower middle-class GPU that features a low shader count and a 64 Bit memory bus but a high clock speed. Similar to the desktop Radeon 4550. Supports Avivo HD and DirectX 10.1.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.

P7450: Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.

T6600: Entry level Core 2 Duo dual core processor with a small 2MB level 2 cache and without virtualization functions.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

2.8 kg:


79.44%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
