The Acer 5738DZG is a relatively quick laptop with reasonable game-playing potential. But more than that, it provides a good workable one-stop solution to enjoy 3D video from games, photos and video.

At first sight, Acer's Aspire 5738DZG looks like an attractive yet fairly standard laptop. Acer's done well in creating an affordable 3D laptop, but don't expect wonders from it. In general we found it performed best when converting games into 3D, but factors such as ghosting from the polarised display and a relatively low-powered graphics card limit the Aspire 5738DZG's appeal

An impressive all-round specification with truly innovative 3D screen technology. It's impossible not to be impressed by the Aspire 5738DZG-434G50Mn and its 3D display. We were genuinely surprised at just how well the technology works, making movies especially fascinating. However, by also making us feel slightly queasy, it remains to be seen whether changes to the technology can make it more comfortable to view.

Despite its obvious appeal, 3D hasn’t really taken off as far as computers are concerned. Although the 3D demo material looks good, we experienced mixed results when converting content that wasn’t designed with 3D in mind. Photos and videos remained flat, but we were fairly impressed with the games we tested it on. The big problem is that the TriDef software places too much of a strain on the laptop’s rather limited graphics resources, and in order to get decent frame rates we had to whack detail and resolution settings right down.

3D is the talk of the display world at the moment. The big TV makers are showing off luxurious new displays, 3D projectors are beginning to appear and Nvidia has already released its GeForce 3D Vision gaming kit. We naturally assumed the first laptop to include a 3D screen would be an expensive desktop replacement but, it’s actually a £522 Acer Aspire. The 3D screen is inconsistent and gimmicky, and pushes up the price of an otherwise solid, yet unspectacular, laptop

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
