Acer Aspire AS5740-5255 Reviews, read these customer reviews before you purchase.
This computer is amazing. HDMI, blue tooth, optical audio out (DOLBY DIGITAL)…fantastic features. That’s about all I can say. It has exceeded my high expectations and, for the $550 I spent on it, blown me away. If you are looking for a new laptop that will handle pretty much anything out there, this laptop will do it. It’s not going to run graphics at the highest resolutions for new games, but it’s darn close. And using the HDMI & optical audio to hook it up to your big TV? Priceless.
I purchased this notebook for my college daughter that is replacing an older slower machine. She is a graphics major and needed a better machine for high end graphics applications next semester. My Daughter is ecstatic. That gives me the summer to play with it myself and if I can get another one for the same price, I might end up purchasing one for myself to replace my older HP DV5035.
This is a solid notebook, purchased for my son who is in high school. He likes the keyboard and it has ample processing speed. The battery life is just OK but the screen is gorgeous and it boots fairly quickly.
I am very happy with the product. I got great online customer service and timely delivery and cash-back. The computer is performing as advertised, and it is a great home computer that I occasionally also use at work (in the classroom). I am particularly happy with the crispness of the screen, video and the sound system. I also appreciate the fact that this computer has all kinds of connectivity (HDMI, VGA, phone jack, etc.) That means I can use it in a variety of settings, not just the continental USA.
