Acer Aspire 5740G

Six laptops that can replace desktops

The Acer Aspire 5740G is a refreshed model in Acer's 2010 Aspire series line up. Earlier versions of the Aspire have been decent performers with a Value for Money (VFM) proposition. This year it receives an update with Intel's Core i3 330M 2.13 GHz processor and the new generation ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics chip. Therefore the bottom line is, if you're interested in a big-screened laptop to do fairly heavy-duty work and don't mind playing games at slightly lower detail setting, then the Aspire 5740G is a decent pick.
