Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5742Z-4097
Source: PC Mag
The Acer Aspire AS5742Z-4097 laptop covers the basics by supplying a dual-core CPU, a roomy 15.6-inch display, and a Webcam, while doubling down on the warranty, providing two years of coverage. There's nothing wrong with this $500 laptop, but Core i3-based models cost only $100 and more offer a substantial boost in performance and battery life.
