Acer has used Intel's low-cost i3 processor to good effect in the Aspire 5741 to create a well specified, mid-sized laptop with a very attractive price tag. It's difficult not to like the Acer Aspire 5741 thanks to its combination of good looks, lasting battery life and impressive performance. Its lack of gaming muscle does let the side down a little, but in most other respects this is a fine budget laptop.

Considering it only costs £699, the Acer Aspire 5741 is a bargain. You get a quick CPU and a good supporting cast of components, and it will be fast enough for any task except high-end gaming.

Whether you appreciate its design is up for debate, but what we can all agree upon is the Acer Aspire AS5741-6073 delivers outstanding performance for the price and surprisingly long battery life. For those who want more features, however, the Editors' Choice Samsung R580 offers Blu-ray, Core i5, and switchable graphics for about $250 more.

Acer's Aspire 5741 comes in many guises, but the Aspire 5741-434G50Mn model that we reviewed is perfect for anyone who wants an affordable laptop that can be used for almost any task except serious gaming. It's a 15.6in notebook with a full-sized keyboard and a number pad and it feels comfortable to use on your lap. We just wish its screen was better.

Acer reviews


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

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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


Intel Core i5:

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.6 kg:

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


72%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
