Acer Aspire 5738PG takes the performance angle

Acer Aspire 5738PGMost laptops shoot for one of two extremes: the cheap route which, while usable, doesn’t exactly offer inspired performance and the high-end gaming option which is a bit extreme in most cases and isn’t the most portable of devices.

The Acer Aspire 5738PG combines a solid processor choice in Intel’s Core 2 chip and AMD’s Radeon HD 4570 graphics for some decent middle of the range performance. TrustedReviews has the rundown:

Despite the 5738PG’s relatively powerful discrete graphics, battery life is fairly good thanks to the 4,400mAh (46 Watt-hour) capacity battery. In MobileMark’s Productivity benchmark, for example, the 5738PG managed a decent three hours and six minutes, while two hours and ten minutes under the DVD test with screen brightness at maximum (though it’s perfectly visible at lower settings) is long enough to watch most films.

A nice option if you’re in the need for something with a decent amount of horsepower without opting for a beast of a machine.
