Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5738G

73% Acer Aspire 5738 3D review
Source: CNet English
The Acer Aspire 5738 3D must be applauded for at least trying to usher in the 3D era, but it doesn't deliver a sufficiently convincing 3D effect, which leaves it open to the criticism that this functionality is a pointless gimmick. Still, its saving grace is the fact, even without this party trick, it's a very solid all-round laptop that's actually good value for money.

Acer Aspire 5738 3D review
Source: PC Authority English
The buzz alphanumerics this Christmas are '3' and 'D'. Everywhere you look, manufacturers are pushing you to into the third dimension, with TVs, movies and gaming monitors.

The 5738 3D is a stunning proof of concept, though. It shows that 3D doesn't have to command a massive premium, and is the nearest to making it mass market we've seen. If it hadn't been for its limitations in games, it would have been a no-brainer.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» 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.


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.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
