With the new Aspire AS5742 line of 15-inch laptops, you can bet that Acer is targeting the average laptop user finally looking to make the jump to Intel's newest processors. The Aspire AS5742-7620 ($629.99 list), packed with a 2.40 GHz Intel i3-370M mobile processor, aims to fit the bill. Equipped with a webcam, Acer's CineCrystal 15.6-inch display, a one-year warranty and many more features, this laptop hopes to be the one that introduces you to the land of i3.

The Acer Aspire AS5742-7645 laptop delivers excellent bang for your budget buck and a long-running battery. But, it comes packed inside a boring, somewhat flimsy chassis.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
