Acer AS5738DG 3D Laptop Design




Measuring 15.1 x 9.9 x 1.5 inches and weighing 6.1 pounds, the 5738DG quit heavy compared to its counter parts and others in the same price category. The latest Acer has a classy and sophisticated design, has a dark blue lid (which is scratch and fingertips prone though a charcoal gray base.



The upper-left areas of the keyboard is easily accessible .it has on/off buttons for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, an illuminating power button, and the Acer Backup Manager point which helps in creating in back up files.




Keyboard and Touchpad




The base is wide and quite comfortable to handle documents and files. Using the touchpad you can access photographs easily and also apply zoom in and out buttons.



Display and Audio



The high-definition 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel display provided sharp visuals but due to coats of gloss it throws up dark images due to reflection. The Dolby Home Theater speakers make up for perfect sound clarity and crispness.



3D Feature:



This is perhaps the only thing that separates Acer 3D Laptop from others that is the 3D-enabled display, built by TriDef. Wearing Polaroid glasses enhances the experience of viewing and working on your notebook. Acer gives you a pair of 3D glasses with the notebook, and a pair of Dwayne Wayne-esque flip-down shades too These glasses were comfortable for a long period of time and easy on the eyes too While horizontal viewing angles for the 3D screen are pretty wide-about 170 degrees-vertical viewing angles are fairly narrow. This D feature is compatible with most games making this notebook great for game lovers. Another feature of the TriDef which is noteworthy is its ability to turn DVDs into 3D.



Ports and Webcam



The Aspire 5738DG offers plenty of spaces for using accessories along with the notebook four USB 2.0, HDMI, VGA, S/PDIF, 5-in-1 memory card reader, Ethernet, modem, headphone, and microphone. To enhance your experience .Acer also includes an 8X DVD drive for watching movies, burning Cds, downloading software etc.



Above the display screen Acer sports a 1.3-megapixel Crystal Eye webcam which offers sharp images but blurs occasionally during quick motions.



Wi-Fi and Battery Life



Intel's Wi-Fi Link 5100 802.11b/g/n card pushed data along at a rate of 19.7 Mbps and 16.4 Mbps at 50 feet. Not only were these numbers on a par with the mainstream wireless averages (20.1 and 16.8 Mbps), are enough to watch movies and your favorite serials without any hassles smoothly.



The battery is however not worth talking about and does a decent job.



Green Testing



It takes about two hours two minutes approximately to completely charge the laptop which is faster compared to other notebooks in the same range which take about two hours and sixteen minutes approximately. And it consumes about 56 watts of energy. Its efficiency rate is lower at 33.8 than many other notebooks.



Verdict




It is the first notebook offering a 3D experience at a price less than 800$ and offers plenty of style and class and easily offers you ample entertainment at an affordable price.About the Author
