Acer Aspire 5735 Laptop Review

Alison and Kevin have monkeyed with the new ultralight Acer Aspire laptop which is a steal at $650 with its Intel dual-core processor and up to 4 GB of RAM. But does all this add up to a worthy purchase?

What You Need to Know

  • Thin and light dimensions make it a good size for a portable productivity laptop
  • Plastic case might be vulnerable to one good drop
  • The touchpad provides pinch and zoom funcionality but it only works OK
  • Unfortunately does not use two or three finger scrolling
  • Roomy keyboard has slightly stiff action
  • PC Mark Vantage test comes it around 2600, the lowest score we've seen for a laptop
  • DVDs look great but the native speakers are too quiet
  • Is a "get what you pay for" situation as the price seems about right 


  • $650
