Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5739G

74% Hands-On: Acer Aspire 5739G in Review | Notebookcheck
The new middle class. They should be compact, mobile and efficient at the same time - multimedia notebooks usually have the hardest time to satisfy their customers. Of course, the price also plays an important role because as many interested parties as possible should be able to afford the device. The Acer 5739G positions itself quite well in all these points, but it attracts general interest with especially one feature: The new Nvidia Geforce GT 240M graphic card.
74% Review Acer Aspire 5739G Notebook | Notebookcheck
Entertainment notebook with gaming ambitions With the Aspire 5739G Acer fields a 15.6-inch entertainment notebook, which could at the same time pass for a gaming notebook with its Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 and the brand new Geforce GT 240M. Whether the Aspire 5739G manages the balancing act, or whether none of the two demands can be adequately met, read in our extensive review.

Certain members of Acer's Aspire Timeline series have impressed us with their svelte, workmanlike charm, but the Aspire 5739G is a more entertaining proposition. Gone are the low-voltage processors, integrated graphics and sharp, business looks; instead, the 5739G is a laptop that encourages you to leave the work until later and have some fun instead. A budget Windows 7 laptop with an impressive turn of speed, this Acer keeps things simple to good effect

At $750, the Acer Aspire 5739 is very affordable for those looking at a 15-inch laptop with a complete feature set including a dedicated graphics processor. The lower cost is reflected though in a number of these features. For one, the laptop is a good inch wider than most that feature a 15.6-inch LCD panel. The graphics are also above integrated solutions but don't expect much in terms of gaming. Still, for the price, it is a decent laptop for those looking for more than what budget laptops have to offer.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M: The GeForce GT 240M is the successor of the GT 130M / 9600M and has now 48 instead of 32 shader cores. Therefore, the performance should be noticeable better. Because of the 40nm process, the TDP is still 23 Watt.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy 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.


P7350:

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

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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
