Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5742-6811

80% Acer Aspire AS5742-6811
Source: PC Mag English
With the Acer Aspire AS5742-6811 you don't have to sacrifice performance to save money at the register. Granted, you don't get as robust feature set and as many wireless features as you do with the HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl (which has both WiDi2 and WiMAX), and the AS5742-6811 uses first-generation Core i technology, whereas the HP dv6-6013cl touts the newer Sandy Bridge platform. That aside, when it comes to raw computing power the Acer Aspire AS5742-6811 offers the greatbang for your buck in a budget laptop.
