There are a lot of factors that make a laptop very expensive but a cheap laptop does not always mean a laptop without great features. In reviewing various laptops under $500 one can easily agree that there are a lot of great features that can be seen with these laptops. Some of them even have better features than their expensive alternatives. This is because the cost of a laptop can come from various areas. And it is not every time that the cost of the laptop is due to the amount of money spent in adding better features to the laptop. Sometimes it could just be as a result of the money spent in creating its exterior or some other part that may not necessarily add a spark to the ability of the laptop. In such an instance, you will find a laptop that is costly but its ability may not necessarily be better than most laptops under $500. Acer laptops are not all that known for being very expensive and as a matter of fact they have a lot of cheap laptops. But their laptops still have great features. This Acer AS5736Z – 4427 is not very different and even though it has its own cons it still has a lot of great features.
- 2.3GHz Intel Pentium T4500 Dual – Core processor
- 250GB SATA hard drive (5400rpm)
- 2GB of installed DDR3 RAM (1066MHz; upgradable 8GB)
Standing with a good average review rating of 4.2/5.0 stars and with a good price of $439.99, this Acer AS5736Z – 4427 is cheap, affordable and its owners already agree that it is not too bad a laptop to own. It also has some other great features like a multi gesture touch pad, a 1.3 mega pixel HD webcam, a 6 cell battery and it comes with the Window 7 Home premium (64 – bit). Its widescreen is 15.6 inch and LED display with 720p HD resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. Many will agree that its DDR3 memory is not bad for this laptop. It also does not over heat and this makes it to be a good laptop to own.
This laptop has no Bluetooth and for a laptop in this age this may be a very big con. Both the screen colour quality and the keyboard of this laptop could be better. And when it comes to memory intensive tasks this laptop begins to frown. This makes it certainly not a great laptop for heavy computing and/or gaming. Yes, it is certainly not a gaming laptop.
In general if you are a student that is not too concerned about playing games or heavy computing and all you want is basic computing to handle your assignments and/or blogging; then you can consider this Acer AS5736Z – 4427. Its features and its price are good together. But you can still get a laptop with similar features and a larger hard drive for a similar price. Nevertheless, this Acer AS57362 – 4427 is not bad if you are just okay with what it has.
