Acer Aspire AS5735-6694 Notebook is a good value for your bucks.
In this economy, you have to stretch your dollar and get the most you can. Buying a new notebook can be tough. Most of the salesman in the big box stores seem to speak another language. I admit that you really should buy a laptop that fits your needs. For the sake of simplicity, I’ll pick one that does a little bit of everything.
I recommend this Acer laptop because it has a strong CPU, a nice screen, lots of memory, a decent hard drive, and a better integrated graphic chipset. It could have a stand alone graphic processor, but the Intel GMA 4500MHD is a newer chip. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.0 GHz), 4 GB of memory, 15.4 inch WXGA screen (1366×768), and comes with wireless N connectivity.
Rating 4 out of 5, 5 being the best.
