I purchased the Acer Aspire 5738 about a half a year ago, and I am very satisfied with it. I needed a laptop as I started going to university this year.
This laptop has a hard disk memory of 500 GB, and a RAM memory of 4, 00 GB. It has a wide 15, 6 inch screen with1366 x 768 resolution and works on Windows Vista.
The laptop aslo has a webcam (Acer Crystal Eye Webcam) which is optimized for low-light video chatting. It's quite good for a built-in webcam. There also is a microphone within the computer, with good quality. I use this laptop a lot for video chatting on skype. I love it because you don't need other hardware appliances. All you need for video chatting is built in the computer itself!
Something else that I find very useful, is the fact that you can put your memory card right into the laptop. That way, I don't always have to get my cable when I want to upload some photo's from my camera onto my computer.
The Acer Aspire 5738 is easy to take with you because it's not that big, but it isn't small either. It also has a numeric keypad, so you don't always have to press shift and the numbers on the top of the keyboard.
Another great thing about this laptop, is its battery. When fully loaded, the battery can last for about 3 hours. That's very long for me, seeing as the battery of the laptop we have at home only lasts for maybe 15 minutes.
I really enjoy using this computer because it's fast and its design is nice as well. It has a lovely darkblue color. I'd definitely recommend this laptop to all of you!
