Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5542

Acer Aspire 5542 Review: Shows Off AMD Vision Technology (Video)
Source: Notebooks.com English
If all you want is a basic notebook computer and you won’t need to be unplugged that long, this might be a decent choice. The keyboard really hampers it, however; for those plugged in and needing a simple computer to surf the web and do a little bit of writing it will work. For people who write a lot or are on the go; look for another option with longer battery life or a more responsive keyboard.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200). 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.
M500:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to a 2.0 Celeron Dual Core / Pentium.

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.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
